Our Client

An American Buyer. 

The Challenge

Our American clients were looking for a long term investment situated between Islington and the West End. Their daughter was going to live in the apartment whilst working and living in London and needed to be able to rent a room out to a friend.

The Perfect Conclusion

Our knowledge and experience in having searched these locations for clients on many occasions allowed us to isolate very quickly the best investments in the market and to present the safest and best located options to the family. Having had an offer accepted on an excellent apartment in Islington and progressing the transaction very close to exchange of contracts, the seller then decided not to sell and pulled the contract. We were able to source an excellent alternative for the client in less than a week. Much to our delight, the family preferred the new property – a top floor, two bedroom apartment in a modern development measuring 1,263 square feet on a quiet turning very close to Highbury and Islington tube station. The apartment was one of only two of its kind in the development and had lovely light, lots of space and rooftop views. The apartment was bought for £1.25m, which equates to £989 per square foot.
