“I set up SP in 2006 because I believe passionately that anyone looking for prime residential property in London should have expert professional representation.
Back then we were a boutique buying agency known as Sourcing Property. We have grown over the years and now offer a full range of property search and property management services to individuals, companies, property funds and family offices.
Our clients return to us time and again, knowing that they can rely on us for honest advice and insight, combined with discreet representation and otherwise unachievable access to the premium end of the market.
I am proud of our growth, built on our own love of fine property, and we continue to believe that, in a competitive property market like London’s, it is essential to have expert representation you can trust.”
