In their own words

George Baskerville, Sales Manager at Marsh & Parsons, Askew Road.
Originally from Shropshire, I moved to London for university following an enlightening twelve months travelling around the world. At university I did a sandwich course in Business studies and spent my third year working for a property investment company based in the city. It was my time working there that got me excited about the industry and after graduating I joined a larger London agency. I was initially attracted to working in property as you dealing with people every day. The great thing with this industry is that no two days, clients or properties are the same. I still get just as excited today as i did after my first exchange. I thrive on assisting people who are selling their properties and enjoy overcoming obstacles that arise through the convincing process.
Having worked across central and west London for many years, i was excited to be given the appointment of Sales Manager at our new office on Askew Road, Which opened in March this year. Having such a wide range of clients and properties, from 1 bed flats to substantial London town houses on roads such as Ashchurch Park Villas and Rylett Road is just one of the main reason i love working here. Its also great being situated so close to the Ginger Pig and Laveli. The area has some fantastic pubs like the Angelesea Arms and good green spaces such a Ravenscourt Park, which i love to visit when I get the chance.
The market last year and the first quarter of the year has been very strong driven by the volume of buyers and the limited amount of stock available, and this doesnt look to be changing anytime soon. However, to celebrate the openings of our new office we are offering to sell people properties for free up until 13th June. Its a great promotion, which has had fantastic response! Just be aware, the property must be under offer and with solicitors by 6pm on the 13th Junefor a seller to be able to take advantage of this.
This area has such potential and I believe we are only seeing the start of it. With buyers being priced out of Notting Hill, Holland Park, Brook Green and Chiswick, W12 and W3 are their next stop. Following the opening we have also had a great response from buyers, either calling in or coming to the office to register to buy through us. I look forward to meeting you soon!
