About Black Brick
Since 2007, Black Brick has purchased over £400m worth of property. Based in Mayfair, the company has grown to a nine-strong team, offering property acquisition, managed sales, rental search, property management and property concierge services.
Black Brick’s team of professionals have been carefully handpicked from across the industry for their depth of experience, specialist insight, valuable network of contacts and proven negotiation skills. Collectively, they have accumulated more than 70 years’ experience in the London and South East property markets, encompassing a range of very different market conditions. This combination of talent underpins Black Brick’s success in meeting the high expectations of its clients.
As an independent buying agency, Black Brick offers truly impartial advice focused purely on the buyer. The team has the expertise and contacts to source those elusive, very special residential properties that often never appear on the open market. Typically, this can represent a quarter of the properties they source. Black Brick’s client base is diverse – 75% of its buyers are international, and include Middle Eastern, Asian, African, Indian, Russian and Europeans.
Black Brick has a high profile in the residential property market, and was recently awarded the 2013 “Property Adviser of the Year” at Spear’s Wealth Management Awards. Camilla was also voted in The Daily Telegraph’s 2012 Property Power List as one of the top 25 most influential people in British property, and is frequently asked to comment in the press and speak at large international events about the London and UK property market. Black Brick have also been selected to be on the panel of several international Private Banks.
