Independent property advisor and commentator

about me

To be still active in the [mostly] London property market after 37 years is remarkable. During that time I’ve worked for amazing agencies run by some very impressive people. I’ve learned from the best and now reckon there are very few people out there with as much knowledge and grasp of what’s going on in the property market. I am also now a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.


Having literally grown up in the London property market, at some point over the last 37 years my capacity to talk openly and honestly was noticed by the press. I’ve happily written columns over many years in both the Sunday Times as their property expert and in the Telegraph as their Agent Provocateur , as well as many other publications and websites. I’ve done two TV series for BBC2 (Chelsea Tales and Estate Agents), many interviews and panel appearances, and now have a regular LBC slot with Clive Bull doing a live property Q&A as well as a column on well known trade website .


I recently left Douglas & Gordon as Executive Director after founding a radical outsourced viewing service for estate agents,, which seems to have caught the industry’s imagination and occupies a fair bit of my time.



Other responsibilities, which give a varied view of the world, include being a non exec director at Douglas & Gordon, on the board of the Property Ombudsman, on the board of Agents’ Mutual, a Trustee of The Hep C Trust as well as being married with 23 year old twins both now at university.


Best ways for me to relax include fishing, motorcycling (day to day as well as continental and UK ventures elsewhere), doing absolutely nothing in the Country, walking the dogs, and generally seeing people I want to.
