The Buyers' Agent

Your unfair advantage

"the BBC's favourite property expert"

What I buy & where

Homes, horses, boats, paintings & planes

Half the homes I buy are in London, from modest flats in Shoreditch to mansions in Mayfair.

and occasionally I search for homes abroad. An estate in Tuscany or a villa in France.
