We’ve worked in traditional estate agency, where it was clear that most of the usual ways of doing things don’t serve most clients very well.
We have taken what we liked and know works from traditional estate agency, done away with what we feel simply doesn’t work or serves the company above the client and then combined this with best modern practices backed up by the latest technology.
We’ve been doing this since 2008 and we feel the results speak for themselves.…more
We have a vast experience and expertise in Letting, Managing and Selling properties in some of London’s most exciting areas and new developments. Our well located high impact offices in London Bridge and Surrey Quays allow us to give a blanket coverage of areas such as Canary Wharf, London Bridge, Surrey Quays, Canada Water, Bermondsey, Elephant and Castle and Deptford and beyond.
Our senior team’s long-standing in the London Property market means that they have not only built up a wealth of experience, knowledge and a great reputation but also a vast client base that spans the globe. We are trusted agents, managing agents and advisors to not only private property investors but family offices, sovereign wealth funds, developers, BTR companies and charities and corporate bodies.
For many reasons, estate agency evolved around the idea of a single negotiator who will work on your behalf. That brings a few obvious problems (what happens if he or she isn’t available?) It also attracts a particular personality type, reinforced by commission or reward structures that don’t always serve the best interests of the client. In contrast we work as a team. …more
That means we can attract and offer a better balance of skills. We have deal-makers alongside analytic thinkers, detail obsessives and relationship-builders. We complement each other’s strengths, so we can respond properly to the different needs of different clients. We work collaboratively, with smart technology. They’ll always be someone on hand to talk to you, and because insights are freely shared we can spot opportunities early, and match them to the right people.
We also have a different fee structure. We don’t think it’s right to take a percentage of a property’s value, because that often bears no relation to the work required. We also don’t think its right to be charged high monthly management fees if there are no issues with your property. Instead you’ll find we have clear fixed fees, and you only pay for the services you need and use. It’s not just fairer. It gets better results for everyone.
Want to see the proof, please look at our reviews from clients and customers.
Whilst some agents have abandoned the high street altogether, we feel our Surrey Quays and Canada Water hub demonstrates the true power and value of high street marketing presence.

This combination of detailed knowledge and broader perspective also informs how we approach development marketing. For property in a specific development we’ll understand and emphasise the context of that development as well as the individual features of the apartment. We’ll track those developments from their earliest stages, so whether we’re selling off plan or from completed construction we can relate a detailed understanding of the offer to optimised promotional work, locally and in the wider marketplace.
In addition to our high impact and well-located branches, we market our properties on all major UK property portals including Rightmove, Zoopla and Onthemarket in addition to a host of other web portals.

We also occupy key spots in both organic and paid search as well as marketing on the key social media platforms. However, we believe that the ability to market our client’s properties to our cleverly curated database of clients, investors and relocation experts from the UK and all over the world is also a vital attribute.
