Our Story

The story of London’s leading independent buying agency, in our own words.

Home » About » Our Story

Black Brick was born free. Born independent. Born to be different.

We are a close team of like-minded, highly experienced and disciplined individuals who understand that a client is an individual, too.

Black Brick was founded in January 2007, when Managing Partner Camilla Dell saw an opportunity to create a holistic property consultancy company with services including property buying, investing, managed sales, property management, rental search and a vacant property care service, whose unique & relentless approach could give their clients a distinct advantage.

Since then it has grown from being a two-strong team operating out of a loft in London’s South Hampstead, to one of the leading independent buying agencies in London and the South East. The pace of Black Brick’s success has been as swift, but sure. Staggeringly so.

Black Brick is now based in Mayfair and has a nine-strong team of property consultant professionals, carefully handpicked from across the industry for their depth of experience, specialist insight, valuable network of contacts and proven negotiation skills. Collectively, we have accumulated more than 100 years’ experience in the dynamic London and South East property markets, encompassing a range of very different market conditions.

This rare combination of talent underpins our success in meeting the high expectations of clients, giving us a critical edge in the highly competitive property search and buying process.

Today, our success is writ large in its financial achievements.

Since 2007, we have successfully secured in excess of £1 billion in residential property for our clients. 

The company has won multiple awards including ‘Best Property Advisor of the Year’ for Spears Wealth Management, ‘Best Buying Agency’ three years in a row for the Sunday Times Estate Agent of the Year Awards, “Best Property Advisor” Wealth Advisor Awards 2019, and were also named one of the top 25 residential property buyers by E-Private Clients in 2019. The firm is regularly included in the Spears 500, an essential guide for high net worth clients, has consistently ranked in the top 5 most influential, successful & connected prime residential property acquisition specialists in Britain by PrimeResi and is regularly ranked in Chambers High Net Worth Guide.

We are now well-established as the property expert for a number of leading private banks. An extraordinary achievement in the challenging property marketplace in which we operate – and plan to do so continually.

Our Team
