We provide a bespoke and highly discreet property advisory, search and acquisition service aimed at taking the hard work and risk out of buying a property. We operate in the country house, country estate and equestrian markets and for prime properties in Central London.

We act solely on the buyer’s requirements, representing their best interests.  Every property we recommend is subjected to high levels of due-diligence to ensure it most accurately reflects the client’s specifications and allows them to make a fully informed investment decision. Having an excellent knowledge of the areas we work in, we will advise on the pricing negotiations and negotiate on our clients’ behalf to ensure they buy at the best price. We manage the whole purchase and completion process to ensure our clients receive an end-to-end service.
