As buying agents, our aim is to find and secure the ideal property, on the best possible terms for our buyers. Our role throughout the property finding process, aside from utilising our local knowledge and experience to secure you the perfect property, is to represent you as a buyer, as an estate agent represents the seller.
We offer a unique range of flexible property search packages, which have been tailored to suit buyers at all ends of the spectrum, with varying budgets and requirements. Our goal is always to deliver excellent value and save our clients’ money, through both tough negotiation and careful selection.
Whether it be an investment, a new family home or your first step on the property ladder, we have the buying experience, contacts and local knowledge to ensure your London property search hits the ground running.

In any given area of London, there could be anywhere between 5 and 50 estate agents, each marketing their own properties. In order to carry out a search effectively, you need to register with each and every one and dedicate time to getting out looking at the properties they have to offer.
Too many buyers miss out on the best properties because they are not made aware of them quickly enough or wait until they hit the online portals. In a fast moving market this is a recipe for disappointment and if your search is across more than one area, this problem is exacerbated.
Finding the time to view properties, form relationships with local agents and then be able to make a speedy decision as whether to make an offer and if so how much to offer, is no easy task. We aim to remove this burden for your shoulders by drawing upon existing contacts within leading agencies and filtering out only the most suitable properties, in line with your brief.
WE FILTER THE MARKET, DRAW ON EXISTING CONTACTS AND ELEVATE YOU AS A BUYER
We strive at all times to add value to your search and are incentivised to justify our fee, by saving you as much money as possible. We are seasoned negotiators and pride ourselves on our ability to achieve discounts on asking prices.
Our role is to act solely and independently in the best interest of the buyer, in contrast to estate agents, who are retained to achieve the best possible deal for the seller. We carry out meticulous due diligence with regards to both local pricing and local market conditions and present this research as a justification and a means of providing context to any offer we make on your behalf.
Both our signing on fees an success fees are amongst the most competitive in the market place and our flexible range of packages are able to deliver excellent value for a variety of budgets and requirements.
IN 2016 WE ACHIEVED ON AVERAGE A 5.6% REDUCTION IN THE ASKING PRICE
Whether it be buying for the first time, a new family home or an investment, purchasing a property is a huge investment. The process of buying a property also has the potential to generate more than its fair share of stress. Particularly when for example, you are moving to in a new area, you are not in the country, you are taking on large amounts of borrowing or you have young children, to name but a few. You can be required to make a lot of decisions to which you are not certain of the answers nor consequences and the process of searching for a property can often throw up more questions than it answers.
Our aim is to guide you through the process step by step, asking the pertinent questions and reassuring you as you move through the various phases of your search.
Our role also encompasses liaising with all the professional service providers surrounding your search and should you so wish, introducing you to what we consider to be the most suitable solicitor, broker, surveyor, architect etc.

Off Market Opportunities
Estate agents are regularly instructed to sell properties that never appear on the open market.
These sellers wish for their sale to remain private to the general public for a host of different reasons. Subsequently, their estate agent will only encourage serious and motivated buyers through the door. Estate agents are therefore very careful about whom they offer these opportunities to. By retaining a buying agent and paying a registration fee, you are sending a clear message that you are a committed buyer.
Through our contacts, we are often notified about new properties that are due to come onto the market. We can then often arrange early access and ensure that we move quickly to get ahead of the crowd.
WE SERVE AS YOUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
Unlike the vast majority of our competitors, we have extensive experience and contacts within the construction industry. We are able to quickly identify obvious flaws within properties and identify potential issues early on, in order to save our clients time, money and add context to any offer made.
For clients who are seeking a project in order to put their won stamp on a property, we are able to factor in the likely costs of improvement works throughout the course of their search. Doing so allows us to manage the overall budget and adjust the property purchase price to works cost ratio accordingly.
Our experience surrounding property development and investment has hard wired into our search strategy, the key factors and drivers that underpin a good investment. Furthermore it has instilled a deep understanding as to the realistic costs, necessary considerations and implications of any works our clients wish to carry out. Please read our project management page for more information about our range of services relating to improvement works.
We Are Market Wide
It is important when purchasing a property to understand each and every factor that affects price and value. A small number of these considerations include style, layout, quality of finish, location, transport links, orientation, local schools, as well as planned or ongoing investment in local regeneration. More subtle yet hugely influential factors include, which floor or side of the street a property happens to be on.
Unlike many search agents, we do not limit ourselves to focusing only on Prime Central London; instead we specialise in searches across the full width and breadth of the London property market. This allows us to consider and compare different properties across all of London’s postcodes, which is crucially important when comparing investment opportunities.
It is essential to remember, that the London property market does not behave as a whole and different areas are never in equilibrium, in terms of performance. The market is fluid, it ebbs and flows, with some pockets experiencing above average growth as the ripple effect moves outwards from PCL, whilst other areas slow and plateau in terms of pricing and demand.
Part of our role is to keep you up to date with market trends throughout the London property market so as you can make an informed decision when it comes to buying a property.

We take the confidentiality and privacy of our clients very seriously and will ensure that your search remains below the radar as much as feasibly possible.
Our role as a filter, alleviates the need to personally register with multiple sales agencies. Furthermore, we remove the necessity to view countless properties, that are simply not suitable and only serves to unnecessarily advertise your search further.
YOUR PRIVACY IS PARAMOUNT
