Portfolio Manager

 

Terry Stephens, company founder, has a wealth of experience in strategic consulting and portfolio management. Whilst based in Asia, he bought a property in London and takes up the story. “I had successfully bought and sold property in Australia and, naively, thought I had the experience to buy in London. But you simply can’t replicate local knowledge and expertise.”

 

“From this experience, I constructed a blueprint for guiding the customer on a journey from the point of initial enquiry through to collecting the keys to their new London home. I am very confident that the people we have chosen to partner with share my obsession for winning for the customer.”

 

“But the buck stops with me in making sure that you feel fully supported on your London property journey. Because buying a new home isn’t just a significant financial investment. It is also a major emotional decision. I would love to hear from you.”
