Amy Marshall Client Search Manager

Growing up in Somerset, Amy has always shown a keen interest in all things bricks and mortar. Curiosity resulted in a very hands-on approach to her parents’ property investment and development business throughout her school years. A career in property was a sure-fire for Amy: Starting with working for a commercial construction company in Bristol before taking some time outside of the UK to live and work in Spain. On returning to England, Amy moved to London to begin a career in the residential property market. Her initial role was as a lettings negotiator for a successful South West London estate agent. In time she migrated into residential sales, further broadening her knowledge of the property industry and London.

Amy now supports Nicholas with the day to day operations of the London business. It is her broad understanding of the industry and ability to recognise an individual’s requirements that ensures the right consultant is appointed to a clients’ search and that support is provided throughout the service.
