For many years I have quietly run my business without fanfare, building my client base by word of mouth and focusing my time and attentions on finding and acquiring great properties. After taking some time off during 2018 to recover from an injury I took the opportunity to re-assess my approach to many things including how to take a now long established business forwards in this new digital era. I elected to make some changes one of which is to raise the profile of my boutique business and the services I provide to a wider market.
I was therefore delighted to find out last month that PrimeResi.com, the market leading online Journal of Luxury Property, has included me in their Prime Movers 2019 Index as one of the Top 50 Buying Agencies in Britain.
In their press release they say… “Operating right at the heart of the prime property market, but often under the radar, the best acquisition specialists will keep their clients streaks ahead of the competition and well away from costly mistakes; indeed, buyers approaching the current market without expert representation are looking braver by the day.
Advising clients on high-stakes decisions in a complex and shifting landscape requires a rare combination of skill, tenacity and – above all – experience. There are no shortcuts, and the most accomplished professionals are always in demand, especially in a downturn.
To make sense of this fascinating but often misunderstood sector (there are currently 735 residential buying agencies registered with The Property Ombudsman across Britain, a rise of nearly 30% on last year’s total of 530), PrimeResi’s Prime Movers index, updated for 2019, profiles the 50 most influential, successful and respected players…
..Under ever so challenging conditions, the bar in the UK’s residential acquisition sector continues to be raised.”
It is a pleasure to be included in this illustrious index of who’s who in the property search and acquisition world.
