Looking for a family home in London?

Let us help you:
  • Define the best area for you long term
  • Resolve the family’s differing requirements
  • Access off-market options
  • Advise on the best strategy to agree a price
  • Manage a chain

Our London based clients often know where they want to live but they struggle to find and secure the right property.

Over the last 15 years, we have helped one of our clients move house three times, within Kensington and Chelsea. The last move was from a three-bed flat to a five-bed family home, four streets away. They continue to use our property finding service because:

  • They know that our connections will give them access to properties they wouldn’t otherwise gain access to;
  • They want a professional opinion on the true worth of a property; and
  • They want a specialist negotiator who understands how to manage the strategies that estate agents adopt during the negotiating process.

Often our clients also have the complication of contradictory requirements of the different interested parties.

That may be partners with differing wish lists, teenage children with an opinion or elderly parents contributing to the financing. As property buying agents, we are specialists in managing such situations and finding a solution.

We recently helped a family, where one spouse wanted a house in Hampstead and the other spouse wanted a large lateral apartment with a sizeable garden in Belsize Park. They had been searching for their ideal London family home on and off for over three years. After a relatively short period of time, we found the solution, a house in Hampstead but with direct access to the Heath, both spouses agreed to compromise on a house for the reward of the Heath on their doorstep.

Finding a family home

​”I have used JWAA for two of my house moves now. One in South London and one in West London. I was sceptical about using a property finder first time around. This scepticism quickly evaporated however. Their insightful knowledge of the marketplace, including price comparisons between different areas and their relationships with estate agents was invaluable. However, it was their meticulous focused approach, help in negotiations and knowing when suitable properties were about to enter the market which offered the real value added. I won’t hesitate to use them on my next move!”
