Often the best properties in London will be sold by private placement to such clients as Curzon’s, without ever coming to the open market.
With the myriad of unregulated estate agents of all sorts and sizes, all trying to sell their properties at the highest prices possible, a great deal of time, effort and market expertise is needed to find the best properties and to get to them first. In reality the sales details of many properties will be misleading. What about that underground line running underneath? Why does it seem cheap on a 41 year lease – what does that mean – how does it affect value now and in the future? And expert negotiation will often save money and as importantly will secure for you the home you want, often against stiff competition.
Initial Discussion & Brief
As a first step we meet with you to work out your specific requirements and to put your brief together. This will cover a number of points including location, property type, budget, timeframe and other matters specific to your requirements.
Working to your brief and liaising closely with you, we will extensively research the market using our extensive network of property contacts including estate agents, developers, private owners and property professionals to source and then preview for you the best properties to meet your personal brief.
Personal Property Tour
Having short-listed and previewed properties on your behalf and reviewed the same with you, we will then take you out on a personal accompanied property tour to view the selected properties.
Once a property has been selected we then negotiate the purchase for you on the best terms and price possible for you, the buyer.
Locking the deal in quickly is best achieved by a swift exchange of contracts followed by completion. Working with your lawyers, your financial advisors and other professionals as appropriate, we hold the deal together and ensure that everything is in place thereby proactively driving your transaction through to secure the purchase. As fully qualified property professionals we are experts in this very technical and critical transactional phase.
