After long experience as an Estate Agent, I (Tracy Kellett) set up BDI Homefinders to use that insiders knowledge and experience for the benefit of buyers and renters in the murky world of UK property.
Set up over 8 years ago, it is now one of the most respected and certainly the least stuffy property search agency in the South-East. The team and I work with all kinds of people from first-time buyers and investors wanting one bed flats, to squillionaires in Mayfair and all sorts of wonderful folk in-between. As a judge on the Sunday Times Estate Agency of the Year awards and the Primelocation best property blog winner, I think I know a bit about UK property.
Non-elitist, we are here to give everyone the opportunity to have an expert working on their side.
Working as a Buying Agent across London and the south-east gives a wonderful helicopter view of the whole property market – far more useful than the tiny geographic spread and local knowledge of Estate Agents. And delivered without bias and self-serving interest.
This blog draws on this overview to try to bring to light what is really happening on the ground- now.
However, the role of the Buying Agent is not merely about property- it is about people and the stresses, strains, emotions and general nuttiness tied up in moving home. In my mind that is far more interesting a topic to focus on, therefore, that is my remit.
