Estate Agents Stratford
Stratford is located in the north western tip of the London Borough of Newham and borders Hackney Wick to the west and Bow which is in London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Both of Stratford's shopping centres, The Stratford Centre and the recently opened Westfield Stratford City are located on either side of Stratford station.
Westfield Stratford City, is home to 300 stores including John Lewis, Waitrose and Marks and Spencer and is one of the largest shopping centres in Europe. The older centre has a range of accessibly-priced stores, its indoor and outdoor market stalls, and a network of small retail outlets. The centre occupies much of the 'island site' which was created in the 1960s by the surrounding gyratory-flow traffic system.
The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will have their main base at the Olympic Park, which will contain a significant number of venues including the Olympic Stadium, Aquatics Centre, and London Velopark. Some of the new Stratford City accommodation will serve as the Olympic Village housing athletes before being re-configured for the property market. After the Olympics the 'legacy' plans include the largest new urban park in Europe for over a century, and a new university.
Royal Mail has given the postcode E20 to both the Olympic Park and Stratford City developments.
Stratford is served by British Rail, London Underground and DLR services, making it a popular commuter town for city and Canary Wharf workers.
The estate agents Stratford handle most of the letting and selling of property in the borough of Stratford. The average property selling price in Stratford in 2011 is £227,993 (home.co.uk).

How to save money selling or letting your Stratford property
If you do not want to pay the typical estate agent Stratford fee to sell or let your property you can consider using an online estate agent.
An online estate agent is much like as high street agent with a virtual office. Many online agents trade from a serviced office which is not in a prominent location on a busy high street.
Now that the internet has grown people no longer look in estate agents offices for property. They will simply call the agent after seeing the property they wish to view on the internet and on websites such as Rightmove (the UK’s largest property website).
Online estate agents charge much less and some offer very similar services to high street agents.
