A British family, already living in Highgate
Our clients had been looking to downsize and buy a family home in Highgate for several months before engaging our services. They already lived in Highgate and knew the area well. They had several unsuccessful attempts, including being gazumped and had become incredibly frustrated with their search. The property market in Highgate is highly competitive, with very little good quality family homes in the sub £2m price bracket.
The Perfect Conclusion
Through our persistent approach with all of the local estate agents in Highgate, we managed to gain access to a property which was being completely refurbished by a local developer before it was ready to go onto the open market. We subsequently arranged for our clients to view it, negotiated on their behalf, and had the property agreed for them within 24 hours. We also negotiated for the property not to appear on the open market. Had the property been openly marketed, the asking price would have been £2.2 million, and we successfully secured the property for £2 million.
