We offer a confidential, discreet and personal service for private clients, corporations, family offices and investors specialising in London and the South East.

We have spent over 20 years working within these markets and have established excellent networks within the industry which ensures we can offer best in class properties to our clients often before they ever reach the open market.

Equally if you are relocating with work and need a rental solution temporarily for you and your family, we will take the stress out of finding the best possible options available.

We recognise that all our clients are unique, and all of their requirements are unique, which is why we pride ourselves in giving sound, professional advice with a tailored service throughout.

Why Work With Us

Expertise and Experience

Extensive knowledge of the local property markets and their intricacies. This expertise helps clients make decisions on where to live and also avoid costly mistakes.

Time saving

Searching for a property is hard work. We save you time by doing all of the searching, vetting and due diligence to present you with a selection of the best properties that meet your criteria. Visiting every property beforehand ensures it fits your search brief.

Access to off-market properties

The relationships we have allows us to have access to properties that are not publicly listed which gives you the ‘first move advantage’ before anyone else and maintain the upmost discretion during your search.

Negotiating power

We work for you! (the buyer) not the seller, and always provide objective advice based on your needs and preferences and ensure no conflict of interest. Sometimes the best advice is to not buy a property.

Objective advice

We work for you! (the buyer) not the seller, and always provide objective advice based on your needs and preferences and ensure no conflict of interest. Sometimes the best advice is to not buy a property.

Local knowledge

We understand the local property market including local laws, regulations and restrictions which can be invaluable in making informed decisions about property purchases.

Support during the buying process

We assist with all aspects of the buying process including arranging viewings, advising on surveys, negotiating the purchase price and will oversee the legal transaction with your lawyers.

Network

We have longstanding relationships with Designers, Architects, Builders, Insurance Brokers, a Private Finance Company, Foreign Exchange experts and of course Lawyers who we can recommend to make the purchase of any property efficient and less stressful no matter where you are based.

Acquisitions

Property Search

After an initial consultation, either in person or virtually, where we discuss and understand your requirements and once we have been engaged formally – we begin the search process. We visit every property we think maybe suitable and draw up a short list for you to view at your convenience, keeping you updated throughout with regular photos or videos of properties.

Negotiation

Once we have found you a suitable property and after extensive research with regards to the pricing, we will advise you and negotiate on your behalf. Unlike Estate Agents who work for the seller, we represent YOU the buyer which ensures there is no conflict of interest.

Property Search

The English Conveyancing system can seem lengthy, drawn out and complicated – that’s because it invariably is! Some clients already have a legal team in place who we will work with to ensure the process to completion is as smooth as it can be. If you don’t have a lawyer, we can introduce suitable lawyers depending on the purchase type and location. Likewise, we can recommend surveyors and other specialists to ensure all due diligence is thoroughly taken care of.

Key collection/holding

Many of our clients are based abroad and we can collect and hold keys on completion and can assist with switching over utility providers and if necessary, arrange for cleaning to be done prior to your arrival. Some clients retain us on a monthly basis after completion to carry out Property Care.

Rental Search

Many clients require a rental property initially before acquiring something, or in the case of corporate relocation placements, will only require a residence temporarily. We can assist with all aspects of finding a suitable tenancy, taking all of your and your family’s needs into consideration.

We will visit every property and if possible, accompany you on viewings. If it is not possible for you to visit the properties, we undertake comprehensive virtual video tours which allow you to make informed decisions without visiting.

Our extensive network of lettings agents and landlords allows us to find properties before they go on the open lettings market which can be fiercely competitive.

Managed Sales

Despite us being a Search and Acquisition business, some clients whom we have dealt with for many years trust our advice and /or simply do not have the time to deal with the selling process themselves. So we do it for you.

In this situation we then take care of the whole selling process by researching the most suitable agents in an area and act as the point of contact throughout, so you don’t have to.

If you have a portfolio you wish to sell across many different geographical locations, it is so much simpler and more convenient to deal with one point of contact rather than having to deal with so many different agents.
