About Us

ACTING FOR YOU

Traditionally, estate agents represent the interests of property owners whilst the buyer is left to find his or her own way.

This service is designed to address this imbalance.

Vision & Mission

Clients are able to take advantage of our network of local, national and international contacts built up over a period of many years. When acting for the buyer, the objective is to purchase at the keenest possible level, although quality inevitably comes at a price. Clients are able to utilise knowledge and impartial advice to make an investment on optimum terms, with valuable savings in both time and cost.

HISTORY

We are a search and acquisition partnership with a long pedigree, formed from the London buying team of a large UK real estate firm. The initials GWD refer to the founding partners, James Geddes, Deborah Walker, and Hugh Dixon. Between us we have over 50 years’ experience of the central London residential property market.
