About us

Urban Patchwork is based by Greenland Dock in Rotherhithe SE16, close to both Surrey Quays and Canada Water stations. We were founded by brother-and-sister team Toby and Tessa Gooding who grew up nearby in South London. 

  • We provide professional and personable residential sales and lettings services, including property management (read our 5-star reviews here)
  • We aim to be a positive example of agency practice in the sector (read about how we plan to do this here)
  • We will use the majority of our profits for homeless housing and support through our UP fund, or reinvest them in the organisation so we can increase our impact over the longer term.

We are members of The Property Ombudsman, NAEA & ARLA Propertymark and the Tenancy Deposit Scheme. We are also a certified 'business for good' and member of Social Enterprise UK
