Discretion, privacy and confidentiality are at the core of our service.
The press often take an interest in the top properties, particularly at a local level, and are keen to know who bought what property and for how much. It is therefore not surprising that both clients and vendors would rather keep their private lives private.
Land registry data clearly shows that property prices command a premium within the best and most prestigious addresses. These include prime London streets and areas, private estates in Surrey and in some of the finest village locations outside of the Capital.
For people relocating either from London or even abroad, it is understandable that they wish to consider the most prestigious addresses and locations at least initially, often driven both by schooling/education and the commutability of some of the areas.
Buying or renting a prestigious property should be a very private and personal affair; some of our clients prefer to be anonymous and discreet when viewing their potential home, we often conduct our negotiations behind closed doors (and even gates) so as to protect people's identities and we regularly sign confidentiality agreements confirming that we will keep all information strictly private and confidential.
Many vendors would also rather remain anonymous and their agents are often instructed to only talk to trusted people. As Property Search consultants with over 25 years of experience in this area we continue to have access to some of the best homes that are only being offered quietly, exclusively and ‘off-market’ through many of the leading selling agents.
