About Eeleven

The care and devotion that people display towards their Victorian or Edwardian homes is a complete inspiration to us, and is the reason why Eeleven exists.

We've had a longstanding love affair with these remarkable and versatile properties — from the architecture outside, to the detail within, and the versatility of the design — but it's the imagination of people who make one their project that really stirs our soul.

Whether it's a painstaking restoration that pushes the original character front and centre; a creative modernisation that blends reclaimed materials with contemporary finishes; or a complete remodel that redefines the roles of rooms and entire layouts: Victorian and Edwardian homes have ridden the waves of changing design trends and evolving lifestyles while never going out of fashion!

Our founder, Vince Laurella, started his estate agency career in Leytonstone in 1999. Since then he's helped thousands of people to realise the most from their Victorian and Edwardian properties: from the maisonettes off Francis Road and the terraces of the ladder in Forest Gate, to the broad tree-lined avenues of Upper Leytonstone and the prized collection of streets that go to make up Bushwood.

And so, in 2016, he created Eeleven, a specialist estate agency for the very best period property in the neighbourhood, built on design-conscious marketing, deep local insight and a really good customer experience.

Whether you are selling, letting or refurbishing a Victorian or Edwardian home in Leytonstone, Leyton, Forest Gate or Wanstead, we're here to help you achieve the best possible price through a unique, intelligent and thoughtful approach.

 


 

People

Vince Laurella
Founder

If you are selling a property, Vince is the person you will meet when you invite Eeleven round to appraise your property, and he will be right by your side until the day you move. He has been an estate agent in Leytonstone since 1999 when he was a mere 16 years old: he loves the neighbourhood and can’t think of anywhere else he’d rather be selling property. He’s now sold many homes in the neighbourhood and helped people move at pretty much every stage of their lives: first time buyers, couples moving in together, growing families, downsizers and right through to retirees. Whether you own a studio flat on Leytonstone High Road, a lovely maisonette on the Abrahams Estate in Leyton, or a big family house in Bushwood or Wanstead, Vince believes you deserve the very best in customer service.

Claire joined Eeleven in 2017 after a 2 year career break to start a family, making the company a husband and wife team. Before Eeleven she was an International Import Export Trade Manager for a large technology distributor, which is where she developed her impeccable organisational skills.  Almost everything you don't see about the smooth running of the company is done by Claire, from managing rent payments, paying bills, ensuring our systems function and that everyone has all they need to concentrate on outstanding customer service. She also plays a fundamental role in organising the marketing and social media.

Paul Travers
Content editor

Paul creates all of our written content, from the area guides and blogs on our website, to promotional campaigns, to our professionally written descriptions; if you are selling a property in Leytonstone, Wanstead, Leyton or Forest Gate, Paul will ensure your home is properly presented to the world!

VALUING HERITAGE

The history of Victorian & Edwardian homes is sadly absent from most property marketing, but the stories of streets add value and interest that we purposely research, capture and portray.

UNDERSTANDING DESIGN

Our descriptions replace corny sales language with insightful & evocative commentary to resonate with people who share an appreciation of beauty, materials and architecture.

OPEN & ETHICAL

Approachability, authenticity and maturity are the very foundations of our business, with a culture of intelligence and respect that sits deliberately apart from typical estate agency stereotypes.

UNCOMMONLY EFFECTIVE

Against sobering national figures that 60% of homes don't sell with the first agent and that 33% of sales fall through, we sell 95% of our listings with more than 90% reaching completion.
