The relief of finding ‘the one’, as described by a current hedge fund client of ours
One of our clients, a successful and very analytical hedge fund manager, had been searching for nearly three years. He had been so focused on value and what else might be out there, he had made it virtually impossible for him and his family to commit to a house with confidence.
We started working with him and, after three property tours and presenting a detailed pricing analysis, we gave him the confidence and context he needed to commit to a stunning and substantial gated family home in St Johns Wood.
Originally priced at £12.75m, we secured the house for £8.4m and assembled and coordinated his team of lawyers, surveyors and architects who ensured everything was in order, and exchanged ten days later.
Our Settling In team will be working with him and his family to oversee the entire move and make it enjoyable and hassle free.
On the day of exchange, our client shared what a relief it was to have finally concluded his search, and he would now be able to unsubscribe and detox from the numerous property alerts he had been receiving over the past years. He likened it to the relief you feel when you meet the right person and get married, being able to unsubscribe from dating apps such as tinder and no longer needing to go on bad dates!
Our client and his family can now enjoy the next chapter of their lives, with complete confidence that they chose from the very best and their budget worked as hard as it possibly could for them.
If you are considering moving – or have been searching without success – please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will happily discuss your options with you.
We are unearthing some great opportunities for our clients in the current market, as I discussed with The Daily Telegraph this week for their Why now is not the time to move to the country article.
