20 yeArs’ sUccess in bUYing London property for clients THE LONDON RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY MARKET IS FAST-MOVING AND HIGHLY COMPETITIVE.

Meeting our clients' needs... SOURCING PROPERTIES MOST BUYERS HAVE BUSY LIVES AND CANNOT DEVOTE ENOUGH TIME TO PROPERTY HUNTING. IN A MARKET WHERE BUYERS DRAMATICALLY OUTNUMBER PROPERTIES FOR SALE, SOME SELLING AGENTS ARE UNABLE TO GIVE ADEQUATE ATTENTION TO ALL WOULD-BE BUYERS. OUR SEARCH TEAMS ARE CONTINUOUSLY SEEKING AND INSPECTING PROPERTIES, INCLUDING SOURCING ‘OFF-MARKET’ AND ‘PRE-MARKET’ OPPORTUNITIES, ACTING SWIFTLY AND DECISIVELY TO secure the right property.

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE BUYERS OFTEN HAVE LIMITED LOCAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE MOST SOUGHT-AFTER RESIDENTIAL ‘VILLAGES’ OF CENTRAL LONDON, SO NEED EXTRA ADVICE AND GUIDANCE WHEN CHOOSING WHERE TO LIVE, WHAT TO BUY AND HOW MUCH TO PAY! OUR STAFF HAVE IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF LIVING AND BUYING IN CENTRAL LONDON. BY GETTING TO KNOW THE CLIENTS’ PREFERENCES, WE CAN RECOMMEND LOCATIONS MOST SUITABLE FOR THEM. WHILST VIEWING PROPERTY, WE POINT OUT TRANSPORT LINKS, SUITABLE SCHOOLS, SHOPPING, EATING OUT, LEISURE AND RECREATION. THOROUGH RESEARCH SELLING AGENTS ACT FOR AND ARE PAID BY THE SELLERS. THEY DO NOT ALWAYS PROVIDE SUFFICIENT INFORMATION ABOUT EACH AVAILABLE PROPERTY. BUYERS NEED HELP WHEN MAKING FURTHER ENQUIRIES AND BEFORE DECIDING WHICH PROPERTY TO BUY. WE ACT SOLELY FOR THE BUYER AND THEREFORE PROVIDE UNBIASED AND WELL-INFORMED ADVICE. WE THOROUGHLY RESEARCH ALL SHORT-LISTED PROPERTIES, INCLUDING SURROUNDING AREAS AND LOCAL AMENITIES, THEN REPORT TO THE CLIENT, BEFORE ANY OFFER TO PURCHASE IS MADE.


...& SECURING THE PROPERTY FOR YOU ACHIEVING THE BEST PRICE A PROPERTY CAN BE LOST DUE TO COMPETITION FROM OTHER BUYERS AND DELAYS IN MAKING AN OFFER. PITCHING AN OFFER CORRECTLY AND NEGOTIATING AN AGREED PRICE IS SOMETHING OF AN ‘ART FORM’, AND CAN BE CRUCIAL TO SECURING THE PROPERTY. WE ARE ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN THE MARKET EVERY WORKING DAY, AND CAN PROMOTE YOUR INTEREST IN A PROPERTY BY RESPONDING QUICKLY. WE ARE EXPERTS IN PRICE NEGOTIATION AND USUALLY SAVE OUR CLIENTS LARGE SUMS OF MONEY. BY ASSESSING AND PROVING THE TRUE VALUE OF A PROPERTY, WE CAN OFTEN AGREE A SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION IN THE ASKING PRICE.


PROGRESSING THE PURCHASE 25% OF PROPERTY PURCHASES AGREED IN THE UK ‘FALL THROUGH’ FOR TECHNICAL REASONS OR UNCERTAINTY, AND THEREFORE DO NOT PROCEED, OFTEN CAUSING FRUSTRATION AND DISAPPOINTMENT FOR THE BUYER. WE MONITOR EVERY PURCHASE CONTINUALLY, AS SOON AS IT HAS BEEN AGREED. WE WORK DILIGENTLY WITH THE LAWYERS AND OTHER PROFESSIONALS, USING OUR EXPERIENCE TO RESOLVE ISSUES AND ENSURE A SUCCESSFUL EXCHANGE OF CONTRACTS.

COMPLETION THE BUYER IS OFTEN NOT AVAILABLE ON COMPLETION DAY (OR THEREAFTER) TO CHECK THE PROPERTY, COLLECT KEYS, TRANSFER UTILITY ACCOUNTS, DEAL WITH SERVICE COMPANIES, AND MORE. WE SATISFY OURSELVES THAT THE PROPERTY AND ANY CONTENTS ARE IN ORDER, DEAL WITH UTILITY ACCOUNTS AND HOLD THE KEYS. OTHER SERVICES, SUCH AS IMPROVEMENT WORK, FURNISHING AND PREPARATION OF THE PROPERTY, CAN ALSO BE ARRANGED BY US.
