‘It’s frightening to think how many years I have spent here,’ says property veteran Andy Buchanan, also known as ‘Mr Chelsea’. He joined John D Wood in 1973, and has become a pillar of affluent Chelsea: ‘If I ever retire, I will have to have a party of about 20,000 people,’ he laughs. John D Wood has done business in 142 of Chelsea’s 145 streets.
His track record is a glowing one and Buchanan himself says the firm enjoys a ‘commanding position’ in the Chelsea market and has enjoyed ‘enormous loyalty’ from people in the area for ‘a very long time’. It offers a wide range of services to HNWs, ‘at every stage’ of the property journey, from acquiring country homes to conveyancing and property investment advice.
