The view from Middleton: June 2017
1st June 2017
Welcome to our summer newsletter. With just one week until a general election, we might have expected to be in limbo while the full range of political outcomes remain. Whether through vote fatigue or certainty of outcome, it could hardly feel more like ‘business as usual’ in the prime property markets. It’s not perfect out there. Under-supply is still the issue in Country, while pockets of London are over-supplied, especially with new developments. Events of the last two years caution against absolute certainty of any specific political outcome, but in business terms we continue to believe that our five watch-words of focus, independence, trust, diligence and knowledge hold us in good stead whatever the market conditions and the political prospects.
That is why we are investing in our own business, particularly in ensuring that our people remain at the leading edge of the service industry. Read about Middleton advisor Adam Buxton’s Harvard experience here. That is why we continue to work with other independent businesses and organisations who share our values, such as Victor, who have shared some interesting research into private jet destinations. Equally, we enjoy hearing stories from our own clients, about their business successes and ventures, such as Harriet Cleverly’s online gifting company, Cleverly Wrapped and Fiona Cadwallader's Silver Medal winning Chelsea Flower Show entry 'The Poetry Lover's Garden'. And we are always happy to support good causes, such as the 2 June Clay Shoot in support of Lawrence Home Nursing.
You can also see, in our In the Press section, that national, business and professional media such as the Financial Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Times continue to seek Middleton Advisors' expert opinions on the prime property market-place.
Thank you for your continued support of Middleton Advisors.
Mark Parkinson, director
