NVP: new website completes transition phase

In Montpelier Street we are celebrating our fourth birthday this month.

And although these are some of the most challenging market conditions we can remember, we just had our busiest August so far. After a quiet spring, as soon as the heat wave ended in late July business picked up.

Our newly published website completes our transition into the next phase of NVP’s development.

Take a look here: www.nicolasvanpatrick.com

Since August we’ve seen five prime residential properties going under offer at NVP, all within walking distance of our brand new Knightsbridge premises. In addition, rumours abound of two deals being done locally at eye-watering sums (£60m and £160m), the likes of which we haven’t seen for a while.

While doing the lion’s share of our deals in Knightsbridge, Chelsea and Kensington, at the top of the market, we are conscious of being ring-fenced against wider market conditions. In our neck of the woods, selling one large townhouse equals a good month of business.

We are grateful to service the clientele we have specialized in for so many years, between our team.

In our new and expanded premises, just a few doors further toward Harrods from our original base, our team has doubled in size following our acquisition of Hobart Slater at the turn of the year, meaning these days we are spread more evenly over property management and lettings, as well as sales.

This means as a business we are no longer so deal-centric (although our sales capacity has also doubled), with a significantly larger property management portfolio to look after. In turn, this allows us to increase our focus on customer service, and provide our clients with what we believe to be truly impartial advice as they wait to for the right opportunity.

At NVP our intention is to bridge the gap between buyer and seller, cycle to cycle, and across all the locales in the Royal Borough. In an era where clicks are replacing handshakes, these latest elements of our developing business are hopefully symbolic of our commitment to traditional values, and to giving our clients and partners the best possible service, both online or in person.

If you are in Knightsbridge anytime soon, do drop in and see us for a coffee. We are always ready for a prime residential catch up, and love to welcome friends old and new, to our new HQ.
