Stevie King meets Kate Bond, CEO of luxury property search and acquisition consultancy Crown Mayfair and discovers why Chelsea remains a top-tier location for real estate investment.


Voted one of ePrivate Client’s Top 25 Residential Property Buyers, Crown Mayfair is one of London’s finest acquisition consultancies, sourcing and purchasing property on behalf of private clients and investors since 2008. With an extensive career in the London property market, CEO and founder Kate Bond created the consultancy with the intention of providing bespoke property services, built on trust, transparency and integrity. In the last few years alone, the company has sourced in excess of £250 million worth of residential real estate, nearly 40% of which being acquired in Chelsea and half of this as super prime trophy assets.


“Crown Mayfair has built a strong and extensive network within the industry which enables us to frequently target desired locations, opportunities and entire developments, many of which have yet to come to the open market,” explains Kate. “In fact, our statistics show that 40% of the properties we have acquired for clients have been off market. In an environment with such high demand and often restricted supply, having this off market capability can make all the difference in finding and securing the right property.”


As London’s second smallest Borough, Kensington and Chelsea is also one of the most populous places in the country; property demand is consistently high and it remains evident that the riverside region maintains its postcode prestige within the capital. As rich in history as it is in high value property, the Royal Borough has been home to peasants and pig farmers, writers and royalty and in modern times, a plethora of celebrities and high net worths.


The variety of property on offer is similarly as diverse, from prestigious mansion blocks and stucco fronted terracing to new luxury riverside developments and town houses. Kate comments: “Diversity is something we stress to our clients, creating a broad portfolio with varying property types helps spread risk, appeal to various tenancy sectors and provides reliable sources of income. It is this diversity, combined with the amenities and reputation that makes Chelsea such an attractive area to live and to invest.”
