Chesterton Humberts has opened a new branch in Notting Hill, its sixth branch in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, to meet the strong demand from local and international buyers and tenants for properties in prime areas of London.
Already with a strong and established presence in the borough, with branches in Chelsea, South Kensington, Kensington and Knightsbridge, Chesterton Humberts’ new Notting Hill branch is located in a prime spot at 30 Ledbury Road and offers both sales and lettings services.
Enna-Mae Assiter has joined the company from Foxtons to manage the new branch and, having lived the majority of her life in the area, brings with her a wealth of knowledge in addition to her years of experience in the estate agency business.
Enna-Mae will be working alongside the branch’s lettings director, Ed Woolgar, who has been at Chesterton Humberts for over six years setting up and growing the company’s highly successful Corporate and Short Lets department. This department has also moved with Ed from its former Westminster base to the new Notting Hill office.
Notting Hill is one of London’s most well-known and sought-after residential areas, with more to offer than just Portobello Road market. There is a vibrant local community due to its diverse range of art galleries, boutique shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Furthermore, the transport links, good schools and the nearby green spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens make it a very attractive place to live.
Ed comments: “Chesterton Humberts’ two Kensington branches have worked with vendors and landlords in Notting Hill over the years, but as the number of enquiries from clients in that area looking for an experienced agency with a national and global reach increased, it became obvious that the business needed a dedicated Notting Hill branch in the heart of the area.”
Enna-Mae adds: “Property prices in Notting Hill proved very resilient in the tough years after 2007, but a shortage of properties, combined with an influx of wealthy foreign buyers viewing the area as an attractive location to invest, has meant the area is now really booming and prices are almost 55% above 2007 levels. Its array of wonderful period properties, excellent transport links and proximity to good educational facilities are the main drivers which attracts both international buyers and tenants, a factor that is helping sustain very healthy sales and lettings markets.
