M&M Property has been a first port of call for vendors, buyers, landlords and tenants seeking an estate and lettings agent with in-depth knowledge of Newington Green, Islington, Highbury, Holloway, Stoke Newington, Hackney and surrounding areas since our business was established more than 20 years ago in Newington Green Road.

To celebrate more than two decades of passing on our knowledge of and passion for this part of London, we have relaunched our own M&M Property blog.

This invaluable resource will reveal news of the local property market, uncover little-known facts about the areas we cover – including details of theatres, restaurants and other leisure venues – and keep you up to speed with government announcements affecting property owners, landlords and tenants.

We will also be covering the best things about living in Newington Green, Islington, Highbury, Stoke Newington and all the other buzzy neighbourhoods we cover. For example, do you know that the original Dalston Synagogue was actually in Poets Road off Newington Green?

Of course you did! But you might not be aware that Daniel Defoe – author of Robinson Crusoe – and poet Samuel Wesley were educated at Charles Morton’s Newington Green academy at the tail end of the 17th century.

Unfortunately, we can’t claim ex-England footballer Jermaine Defoe – he went to school in Forest Gate.

You’ll learn when and where London was bombed from the air for the first time.

We couldn’t keep you in suspense. On the night of 31 May 1915, a German airship dropped bombs on 16 Alkham Road in Stoke Newington.
