We moved to London from the US, knowing where we wanted to live in London but not much more. We engaged a relocation agency to help us but their process and speed was not really working for us. I found a listing online that was represented by John D Wood and was contacted by Anne Battumur to schedule a viewing. When I met at the property in question with Anne, from the start she was very professional, courteous and engaging.
The property ended up not quite being the right fit for us but Anne had proactively already prepared a few other ones, based on the short conversation we had prior to the viewing, that were similar in style and close by and so we went to view those as well. All of them were very well aligned with what we sought, Anne clearly had listened and understood what our core wants were. One of the listings she had found was the perfect match for our wants and needs, and even though it was represented by another firm, Anne setup everything for us with that firm and agent and helped us secure the property at a great price. She also educated us on all the steps, nuances and details of the UK rental market and made the whole experience so easy and stress free for us. It was truly good fortune that led us to Anne, I don't think our home search as expats could have been made any better than what Anne delivered.
If you're in the market for a home in the Chelsea area I highly recommend to contact Anne Battumur at John D Wood & Co. You will be in great hands and well taken care of. Whenever we will next be in need of help we will certainly return to her.
