Press Release: Marsh & Parsons Bucks Trend by Opening Mayfair Branch
Mon 09 Feb 2009
Mayfair's active property market has motivated London estate agent Marsh & Parsons to open a new branch due to the increasing demand for both sales and lettings in the area.
Marsh & Parsons managing director, Peter Rollings, said: "The property market in Mayfair is now starting to buzz again. Interest from our corporate clients has suddenly picked up and demand for high end lets is rocketing. The sales side is rapidly improving too - buyers recognise the once in a lifetime opportunity they have to get value for money in one of London's most desirable areas. Mayfair prices have eased by at least 20% since their peak in 2007 combined with the weak pound, now is an unbeatable time to buy, particularly for foreign investors."
Guy Major, previously head of sales at another high-end Mayfair agent, has been appointed branch manager. Guy has fifteen years experience as an investment banker in London and Asia, affording him a good understanding of buyers in this market. Marsh & Parsons Mayfair lettings will be run initially by Claire de Wolff, lettings manager at Marsh & Parsons' Pimlico office. Marsh & Parsons are currently considering applications for a full-time Mayfair lettings manager.
Peter Rollings continued, "I'm delighted to be opening in Mayfair. Having been around for over 150 years I felt this was a real gap in our areas of operation. Im also excited to be welcoming Guy on board the Marsh & Parsons team weve worked together previously and I'm well aware of his formidable success rate. His experience of the London property market and of Mayfair in particular will stand us in good stead for this exciting new venture."
Guy Major formerly worked for Chesterton Mayfair as branch manager. Prior to this he was a sales manager at another London agent, where he worked with Peter Rollings.
