Who will I speak to?
Jane Wood established the company in 2001 and she has over 30 years of experience in the London property market. She has an enviable list of contacts, has negotiated on countless transactions and knows London like the back of her hand. Jane is also a qualified chartered accountant and former finance director of a PLC subsidiary. As a result, she brings an analytical and a thinking approach to property search.
Olivier Barbé joined Jane in the family business in 2007 and has helped hundreds of our clients with their property searches. He is a stickler for detail and leaves no stone unturned when hunting for the perfect property. Like Jane, Olivier is also an accountant and in his early career was a management consultant with a “big four” firm. He has a professional training in problem solving and brings this approach to all of his searches. Olivier is also well suited to help our French speaking clients and is an expert in both the French and British education systems.
