Mr & Mrs Pigorini (Belgravia)

We live in Brazil and wanted to acquire an investment property in London. This is not a market we know well and obviously did not have the time or ability to carry out the necessary research from so far away. Fortunately Mercury Homesearch came highly recommended.

The process started with a telephone consultation to discuss our requirements. Jeremy insisted on discussing the smallest details to ensure that he would not trouble us with unsuitable properties. Over the next few weeks he sent us details of the best apartments within our criteria. He had previewed every suitable property, so was able to give us an accurate appraisal of the finest apartments including what he regarded were the disadvantages of each. Consequently we had total market coverage, but only received information on a handful of properties.

Once we had a suitable shortlist of properties we visited London. We were taken by chauffeur driven car to see the properties and Jeremy added a couple of new properties that had become available. We discussed the merits of each property on site and finally decided on two properties we really liked. Jeremy then gave us advice on target prices and handled the negotiations accordingly.

Unfortunately one property was offered a very high price by another party and Jeremy advised us not to bid higher. Fortunately he was able to secure the other apartment in Belgravia at a good price. He then handled the complicated legal process co-ordinating the solicitor, surveyors, financiers and estate agents to ensure as smooth a transaction as possible. This saved us a lot of time and stress as the English system for buying a home is not the most efficient.

If you are planning to acquire a property in London we would highly recommend using Mercury. They were very knowledgeable, offered a very high standard of service and handled everything efficiently. Consequently we have acquired an excellent apartment in Belgravia on very good terms with no stress or hassle.
