Currently living in Hong Kong, needing a house in London so they can visit children at school in England.
A house which is in an area that they could access both schools as well as offer capital growth over time and could be rented out if needed.
Lots of green areas and space, good shops and restaurants and good transport for the rest of the UK
Once the budget and type of property was decided we offered a selection of areas which would suit the budget and lifestyle whilst also being a good potential area for capital growth and rentability.
Whilst the client was overseas, we had many zoom calls and made videos of each property to get a good idea of what they were like. Once the client landed in London we had a clear picture of the areas and types of properties which could work. We then negotiated on the house which they selected in Wimbledon having also looked at other areas such as SE1 and Marylebone.
E.g. We brought:
Our clients were an overseas family. They had children studying in the UK and had a two-week break to find a property.
This time, our client was a recent graduate looking for her first home and investment in London.
Our client was looking to assist his three children in purchases of each of their first homes.
Mrs F who was living in south west London had been searching for a property for many months in mid Suffolk.

When making probably the most important financial decision of your life, it pays to have the right advisors at your side.
Retirement or semi-retirement is an exciting stage in life. Finding the right home to live in and enjoy it to the full is important. We know that and will do all that we can to understand what you’re looking for… before starting to search. And search we will, until we find the house of your dreams.
Relocating is time consuming and stressful. We regularly work with clients who live abroad. We hunt, short-list, prepare your viewings, and make the search process as easy as possible. We oversee the negotiations, manage the conveyancing, and deal with the headaches, so you can concentrate on other aspects of your move.
A holiday home is often an interesting mix of investment and heartfelt connection. You want to use it, but you may well also be keen for others to use it too. We can advise you on what factors to consider in making your decision. And we can then find the perfect holiday home for you to enjoy.
Others say, ‘location, location, location’. We say, ‘location, purpose, price, capital growth, rental returns’… the list goes on. Knowing the market is critical. Local knowledge is key. We ensure all aspects of your investment decision are addressed. Finding, analysing, negotiating, and completing… it’s what we do.
