Offering something completely different to the big-brand chain operations that characterise our high streets – boutique estate agencies are less prominent by their very nature, and must make a name for themselves with sheer hard work, deal after deal; client after client.
However, those firms which add real value will survive, and even prosper, when times are hard; being nimble in these kind of situations can often be a big advantage.
To make sense of the bewildering array of options available in the capital, PrimeResi`s Prime Movers index, updated for 2019, profiles 50 small firms that represent the very best the industry has to offer, brokering the finest and most interesting high-value properties, whilst providing exceptional levels of service with a genuinely personal touch at every turn.
This isn`t about who has the flashiest office, or who tucks away the biggest deals; these firms have built highly-valued presences in their local communities – and demonstrate their value with every happy homemover.
Companies in this index should be:
• A firm with half-a-dozen or fewer branches or offices in the UK;
• which is not part of a global real estate behemoth;
• which represents vendors and/or landlords (i.e. which operates in sales and/ or lettings);
• within Greater London,
• and is active at the upper-end of the market.
