Our Hong Kong based investor client was keen to expand his existing London property portfolio. We identified one property as the best and previewed it immediately. By the time our client flew in to London only a few days later the property was already under offer with another buyer.
However, our strong relationship with the selling agency’s corporate department and the fact that we were the first to see the property, enabled us to gain access to show our client – and ultimately secure it by paying the original asking price, only a marginal amount more than the other buyer. We will be managing the property for our client on completion.
