Why our clients stay

Our client relationships are paramount, but vitally, so are those we have built up over the years with estate agents, private banks, family trusts, lawyers, architects, surveyors and other property related professionals. It is through this network that we are frequently able to target houses, apartments and entire developments that have not yet come to the open market. In fact, our statistics show an impressive 40% of properties that we have bought on behalf of our clients have been purchased off market.

“I thought the experience of searching for a flat in central London hectic and dull. With Crown Mayfair the search was exciting and productive but importantly easy. They were so helpful throughout the whole process and well after buying my property. In this occasion I would like to thank them for the great contribution in my search.”

Testimonial 5

“I had owned a property in London for close to 15 years and was referred to Crown Mayfair through my bank as was hoping to up-size. Their advice throughout was instrumental, especially on issues of tax and market understanding. Were were able to sell my previous property within 4 months and acquire a modern family home in a location much more suited to my family’s needs.”

“A close friend in finance introduced me to Crown Mayfair in the Autumn of 2014. Their attention to detail was noticeable throughout and not only were we able to secure a strong, 3 year tenancy; the team were able to beat the December Stamp Duty changes, saving me a considerable liability. I would certainly recommend.”
