Abhisheck Lodha (Belgravia)
If you wish to acquire a property in London I strongly recommend you use Mercury Homesearch. I have no doubt that we would not have been able to buy a property, which represented such value in one of London’s finest addresses, without his knowledge and expertise.
I live in India and wanted to buy a home in Belgravia, Knightsbridge or Mayfair for my family. Although I am a director of one of the largest property companies in India, I have had little experience of prime London market. In addition I was too busy to carry out the necessary research and barely had time to visit London to view potential homes. Consequently, I needed someone with a proven track record to source all the suitable properties available, refine these into a shortlist and then to advise me on the value and to negotiate accordingly.
Mercury achieved this and more. While I was in India Jeremy McGivern provided me with details of suitable properties, honestly describing the pros and cons of each. When I was able to visit London I was taken on a tour of properties that fitted my criteria. I was able to look at these on my own pace as Jeremy escorted me on the viewings so I was not ‘sold to’ by the estate agents. I quickly decided that I required a larger property. Unfortunately I was only in London for five days, but nevertheless Jeremy was able to show me a good selection of homes that fitted my criteria.
When I had decided on a house, Jeremy arranged for a firm of builders (who have carried out extensive work in Belgravia) to visit the property the following day to advise on whether a lift could be installed and give rough estimate on the refurbishing costs. He then recommended a target purchase price providing comparable details, so that I could be sure that I would be making a good acquisition.
He then carried out the negotiations successfully and was extremely diligent in ensuring that the transaction proceeded as smoothly as possible – he recommended an excellent solicitor and surveyor and co-ordinated with my team in India. He even arranged for a security system to be installed ready for completion as we would not be there.
In addition it was a pleasure to work with him as the service was impeccable: from providing chauffeur driven cars, to recommending restaurants and places for my family to visit. Everything we asked for was handled swiftly and efficiently. I look forward to having him represent us again in the future.
