Ocelot Gymkhana was a series of short play and sketch nights staged by Spontaneous Productions between 2009-2013. Now, after a well-earned five year hiatus, the Brothers are reviving their pick of the best pieces, dusting them down, giving them a new lease of life, and occasional mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to entertain, bamboozle, confuse and possibly outrage those of a sensitive nature. Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of the Brothers Kaufman!

“Some extremely hilarious moments…If you are a fan of surrealist comedy, you should definitely give it a go.” (Female Arts review of Ocelot Resurrection, 2013)
Our thanks also go to Penge Tourist Board for organising another wonderful event, and to fellow members of the Penge Trade Association for helping to keep SE20 a unique and fantastic community. We're proud to be a part of it.
You can pick up route maps for the event from 4pm on the day in the three participating pubs (Alexandra, Bridge House and Goldsmiths). Alternatively they will be available online closer to the date - check the Facebook event page for details.
We look forward to your visit mwahahahahaaaaa!
These awards are based purely on customer feedback, so thank you to our wonderful clients for taking the time to review our service, and here are a few words from our main man, Kevin:
“I am now into my 16th year as an estate agent and still loving it. I’m a people person and love houses, so this job was made for me. I really like the personal touch that comes from working with a family run estate agents - Property World’s ethos centres around honesty and integrity, and that sits well with me. It’s just easier to be nice.
This job should be easy - all I have to do is match the right person with the right property. I need to know as much as I can about the buyers needs right from the outset, and ask the right questions when the initial call comes in. Sometimes it takes one viewing, sometimes twenty, but if you know exactly what the client’s needs are then you're already halfway there.
Knowledge is power and turning up to viewings on time with all the information a buyer will want is a must - it’s shocking the amount of viewers who, when you first meet them, will tell you that the estate agent they had met at a previous property didn’t have the lease length, ground rent or service charge information.
I am so proud to have received the award for Best Estate Agent in London. It’s really warming to know that the reviews have come direct from both vendors and buyers. I will be looking to carry this onto 2019, so watch out London agents - I’m looking to keep this crown”.
The allAgents 2018 People Awards are based entirely on feedback from clients rating and sharing their customer service experiences, and are the UK's largest free customer awards scheme for agents and people working within the property industry.

PropertyWorld was established 21 years ago and is a local family business. Our owners Richard and Dan Crowley have grown up and lived in the areas we operate in, and their expertise is unrivalled. Being part of the community, living and working in the area, gives our team insight and local expertise that’s appreciated by our buyers and sellers alike.
From day one we set out to deliver exceptional results on behalf of clients; to be honest and trustworthy, and to provide the best customer service possible. As a result vendors will never incur upfront or hidden fees, and if for any reason a property does not sell there is no charge. Online agents that take fees upfront have less incentive to work hard to secure a sale, whereas we have a genuine desire to achieve the best possible price from buyers in the best position, minimising stress and disruption to sellers as far as possible.
When it comes to online agents your signature on the contract is when they start caring less, whereas for us that's when we start caring more. Our flexible but hands-on approach means that we will always conduct viewings at times convenient to you. Using our years of experience we will help you to get your property looking its best (with our free house doctor service) so potential buyers can see how your property could be an excellent fit for them.
There is no replacement for face-to-face conversation, and being able to speak directly to the agent conducting viewings of your home. You will have the mobile numbers of both the Director and Sales Manager looking after you so you can always reach us, anytime.
Our reviews show that over 99% of our clients would recommend our services to friends and family, ranking us No.30 of 15,300 UK agents. In 2017 we were delighted to win AllAgents award for 'Best Small Chain in the UK', testament to our team's hard work and dedication to making the process of buying and selling as painless and as smooth as possible. We care about what we do and the people we’re working with.
The result? On average we find buyers within 4 weeks and over 91% of our sales successfully complete. We achieve full asking price on over 60% of our properties (the UK average is 27%).
By contrast, recent research by GetAgent (in July '17) looked at 500 instructions by online agents, finding that: when they looked at all online agents instructions over a 14 month period between Jan '16 and Feb '17 around half hadn’t sold, that almost half those interviewed felt the online agent they chose was poor value for money, and 40% spent more time than expected managing the sales process.
Finding a buyer is only a small part of our job. A bigger part of our job is managing the sales process once an offer has been agreed - liaising with agents, solicitors and those in a chain, dealing with problems before they grow and derail a sale, communicating, reassuring buyers and vendors.
Our award winning service is based on our direct knowledge of you, your buyers and the property - a winning combination that is key to a successful sale.

- Clean. A really deep clean costs very little, but goes along way to give buyers the right impression of your home.
- Declutter. Personal items that show the lovely life your family have enjoyed in the property are not what a buyer has come to see – they want to imagine the lovely life they could create there, so be sure to give them the space to do that.
- Remove bulky furniture. If it’s too big for the space you risk making your property appear smaller. Temporary storage might be a possible solution here.
- Spruce decoration & keep it simple. Most households have a to-do list of odd jobs like fixing a kitchen drawer that no longer closes properly or replacing cracked tiles. Potential buyers may notice minor issues and worry they’re a bigger problem. Pay attention to detail.
- Let there be light. A naturally sunny home is something most buyers dream of but if you think your property needs a boost you can keep décor light, use mirrors to reflect light and remove anything that might block those rays shining through.
- Curb appeal. Mow the lawn, clear the gutters, paint window frames. Look at your neighbour’s homes and compare – what will a potential buyer think?
When a proud Christmas Fairy loses her place on top of the Christmas tree, her adventures are just beginning. But an encounter with a lonely snowman changes everything … Can she find a new home and the snowman make a new friend? Join Spontaneous Productions in this magical story of learning and friendship.
The show is completely free and lasts approx 20 minutes. It will perform on the hour at 2 & 3pm at Sydenham Community Library on Sat 2 December and at 1, 2, 3 & 4pm in the Main Hall Upstairs at the Sydenham Centre on Sat 9 December. Seating is limited to 100 people per show so get there early to get the best seats!
In addition, those spending up to £500,000 will benefit, as the first £300,000 will remain stamp duty-free. But what does this really mean for the market and prices in London?
PropertyWorld Director Dan Crowley comments “Abolition of stamp duty for first time buyers is well intended, and hopefully a boost for those trying to get on the ladder. Only time will tell if it also pushes up house prices. Evidence from similar attempts in the past suggest that will be the unintended consequences.”

Expect old favourites like Santa's Grotto, craft stalls, cake stall, face painting, and much much more. We look forward to seeing you there!
As proud sponsors of the event we've got our hands on some raffle tickets, so if you fancy your chances at winning the £250 Sainsbury's voucher pop by our Sydenham office before the end of the month and get yours! Tickets are £1 each. Good luck, and we're sure the fair will be fantastic fun.
