The first six months of the year have been pretty manic with buyers asking me to look in London, in the home counties, in the Cotswolds, the Channel Islands and in Italy. I bid for something most weeks and usually acquired at least one property a month. Below you will find a selection of the sort of things I have bought so far this year. It gives an idea of the sort of business I do.
I am often asked to recommend good lawyers, builders, decorators, surveyors and accountants as well as estate agents to sell for clients and friends. Knight Frank, Savills and Strutt & Parker have each done an excellent job recently but so too have boutique agents who are often better placed to offer a more bespoke service. Thanks in turn to Winkworth, Mullucks Wells, Wetherell & Butler Sherborn for advice given so far this year.
I act for a maximum of 12 clients at any one time, never for two with the same brief and I am currently looking for a wide range of property, here and in Italy.
