Diary of an estate agent
I get a useful update on the Dubai market and on a new scheme in Sherwood Street.
I am due at Hans Place at 1.30 to show one of a number of properties to a gentleman viewing on behalf of his mother. She lives locally and is looking to downsize. All goes well and he thinks she might be interested. Later I’m at Chesham Place for the second time this week, with an overseas client who is looking for a London pied-à-terre and is genuinely charming — meeting interesting people is one of the best perks of the job.
As the end of the day approaches, I reflect on this year’s cricket season and look forward to the next, both as a spectator and player. It is my thing and I am a member of both the MCC and I Zingari, two of the oldest cricket clubs in the world. There may be no cricket for a while, but the season for my second hobby looms — skiing. I leave the office thinking about possible destinations for this year’s first white adventure and pause to try to remember when Knightsbridge last saw snow.
