“I’ve seen the residential market at its best, and its worst. Since starting at Knight Frank in 1982, I’ve been through two recessions, and seen interest rates at 17%. This puts my feet firmly on the ground when assessing properties. With years of experience, and deep specialist knowledge, I’m as well equipped to avoid and to deal with difficult situations, as I am to identify exciting investment opportunities.”
