Partner in a Leading Global Law Firm

I had been planning to acquire a property in London for some time, but the combination of being based in the Middle East and having an exceptionally busy work schedule meant that I simply never had time to focus on this. 

I then heard about Jeremy McGivern at Mercury Homesearch who seemed to offer the solution: he would speak to all the agents and use his large list of “off market contacts” to find the best opportunities both on and off the market. This meant that I would avoid being pestered by agents who would call or send me properties that were simply not suitable. 

In addition, as he would represent me, he would give objective advice on valuations, unlike the agents who are legally obliged to achieve the highest price possible for their clients, the sellers. 

The first property that he recommended was a great apartment in Holland Park with exceptional views. Although, it wasn’t quite right for us, it was a good start and clearly a good opportunity because it sold soon afterwards. 

He then suggested an apartment in South Kensington which wasn’t right although for reasons that we hadn’t discussed previously and which helped us clarify the exact size and layout of property we wanted. 

He then found a property in Marylebone which had exceptional views over a garden square and was a rarity in that it spanned the width of two buildings, so we were able to acquire an apartment which is an excellent size, on one floor, in a highly sought after address and we acquired it on favourable terms. 

In addition, I avoided all the normal wasted time, stress and frustration that I would otherwise have had to endure which allowed me to focus on my work; throughout Jeremy was always on hand to answer any questions and resolve any issues that arose. 

So, I would highly recommend that you ask Jeremy to help you if you are planning to acquire a property in London. He did everything he promised, so we now have a wonderful apartment in a great location which we simply wouldn’t have managed to acquire without his help.
