Evening Standard (Homes and Property): I see light viewing a church conversion

Tue 01 Sep 2015

MONDAY

It has been an incredibly hectic few months, with another busy and excit-ing week ahead. We're launching Keybridge, a new development in Vauxhall with 441 apartments, and what will be the UK's tallest brick-built tower. The brochure has given me some bedtime reading since I received it last week, so it's fortunate that I have an understanding girlfriend. As my day in the office comes to a close, I head over to see my client in Camberwell Green, where this major regeneration project is under way.

TUESDAY

Keybridge launch day is here. I can't help but take a moment to enjoy the views out over the development from the terrace at The Oval cricket ground it's just stunning. Our team arrives early to ensure we are fully prepared; armed with our tablets and a huge archi-tectural model, the set-up is impressive. Our schedule is packed and the day is long. We chat to all types of people well into the evening and the day is a great success. After a whirlwind of conversations, it's over. I return home exhausted and kick off my shoes. Time to rest up for tomorrow.

WEDNESDAY

I arrive at the office early with my usual coffee in hand. As I reach for the door, an international client calls having just landed he wants to arrange a walking tour and we agree to meet mid-after-noon. No rest for the wicked. As I fmally get to my desk, I sip my now not-so-scorching coffee, read through my emails and make some
calls. Before I know it, it's time to rush out to meet my first client. The meeting goes well and I make a note to follow up tomorrow I do get a buzz when clients share my enthusiasm and excite-ment. To finish off the day, I go on-site for my first inspection at Hampton Row in Barnes, looking much like one of the Village People in my builder's hard hat. Briefly, I daydream that one day I'll be the investor acquiring properties off-plan, but then I snap out of my reverie and get back to completing the reserva-tion process. All good things come to those who work hard, I tell myself.

THURSDAY

It's a glorious summer day. I walk into a church conversion in West Kensing-ton, The Lourdes Collection, for a viewing and the light spills through the magnificent windows it's absolutely breathtaking. This is followed closely by a viewing at Hoola in Royal Victoria Dock, another huge regeneration area with a Crossrail station set to open in 2018. All goes well and I'm hopeful we will receive an offer by the weekend. I follow up with my client from yester-day's tour and I'm thrilled to find that he has decided to reserve not one, but two of the units I proposed.

FRIDAY

What a great way to end the week I find out that my walking tour client would like my support with building his investment portfolio across multi-ple developments throughout Lon-don. I feel proud and put this down to my enthusiasm for the London
residential market I really do live and breathe it. As I wrap up my day, it's time to take my girlfriend out for dinner to say thank you for putting up with all of my home-work and long hours over the past few weeks. I need her on side, as I have a packed day of viewings tomorrow that I haven't told her about yet...
