Quiet Please: The irresistible draw of the off-market instruction

The inherent fascination with London’s real estate is apparent in the extraordinary media attention it continues to receive, and by the amount people love to talk abo ut it. Indeed, in the British capital there are properties for every taste and for any task. However, as many of us know, the ones you hear about are only the tip of the iceberg. Along with widely advertised lots, there are the off — market properties, whose conductors are property finders — linking buyers and sellers of private property not mentioned in the brochures and catalogues of real estate agencies. Away from the prying eyes of the public, such residences are the real treasures of the market, to be desired, coveted and sought after.
