Find Me Quirky!

The Brief:

  • An interesting property, older style with character.
  • Some work would be OK but definitely NOT a project.
  • Comfortable space for guests to stay.
  • Easy commute to London.
  • “We’re looking for something a little unusual, a little quirky. Yup – Find Me Quirky!”

T & J O had been looking for a property on and off for over 5 years, missing and losing out on a couple along the way. Becoming somewhat disillusioned T called me to see if I could help. Initially very excited about the prospect of my assistance she subsequently decided to give it another go on her own.

However about 3 months later she called again, and said – you know what? Please just help is out with this – I can’t do it!

J spends most of the time jetting around the world, speaking at conferences and lectures, with an itinerary that made my head spin! And when at home pretty much the last thing he wanted to do was go house hunting. T was therefore doing this on her own in amongst her own pretty hectic schedule, so engaging my services made perfect sense in the end.

Very quickly I had scoured their (initially quite wide) preferred locations, and came up with a shortlist, ultimately finding a property that was just about to come back on the market because the chain had fallen apart – being in touch with the right people, in the right place at the right time with cash available meant we were able to close the deal really quickly without the property ever coming back to the market.

“Richard was invaluable in guiding us through the negotiation and mortgage process. We’ve now been in for two months and couldn’t be happier.”
