Real Estate

Residential Real Estate

A beautiful residence in a new country or providing an extra base for the client and their family in London, can take considerable time and effort to source and negotiate. In a fast moving real estate market, such as London, properties come on the market and are sold on the same day – the more desirable the location the quicker the sold sign is erected. Creating and transforming the property to meet the client’s needs may stretch their patience as they discuss and agree architect plans, colour palettes, furnishings and landscaping. Time better spent on more pressing matters.
