I love the tangibility of real estate
I possess over fifteen years’ experience and expertise working on all elements of commercial real estate transactions acting for charities, developers, investors, luxury retailers and hotel and leisure operators. I am a proven deal-closer, getting deals over the line’ for clients. I love the tangibility of real estate – having worked, eaten, drunk and stayed in properties that I have bought; developed; let or sold.
My passions outside of property are travel and experiencing new cultures (I am half French and my wife is from the Caribbean) eating a great meal with family and friends; and a fine glass of left-bank Bordeaux.
