Ashley brings close to 20 years of experience and in-depth knowledge of Prime Central London property and investment in residential markets. Ashley has acquired a wide range of property on behalf of our clients – from Chelsea and Kensington to Hampstead and Regents Park, from Notting Hill to Marylebone with a specific focus on apartments and houses in the region of £10m – £40m. Since joining Middleton in 2014, Ashley has also built a team of London advisors, each specialising in a key sector of the market.
“We’ve made it our business to get to know the whole city and really understand the character and the nature of each of its areas – not just the traditional prime postcodes, but the new prime neighbourhoods,” says Ashley.
“As well as identifying the best property, it’s equally important to match people up with a part of the city that most suits their personality and lifestyle.”
“It’s important to keep a close eye on local infrastructure, regeneration projects, new developments and changes to the high street, as well as understanding the broader economic and lifestyle trends.”
“And our clients are as diverse as London itself. We’ve acquired property for clients in sports and media through to FTSE company CEOs and entrepreneurs, each with their own, very specific requirements and aspirations.”
“When we’re searching, it’s paramount we explore all avenues both on and off the market, but there’s no question that the proportion of transactions that take place privately continues to grow, and so it’s our inside knowledge that delivers a large part of the value we bring. We recently acquired a Notting Hill townhouse, for example – one of the very best in the postcode – directly from the owner, and this will continue to be the case in London.”
