Rupert des Forges

Spear’s Review

A property guru with an ‘encyclopaedic’ knowledge of Knightsbridge, Belgravia and Chelsea, Knight Frank’s head of prime new homes Rupert des Forges has worked in London’s gilded postcodes for more than 30 years, with more than half of that time at Knight Frank.

Des Forges has overseen the headline sales of the penthouse floors at 1 Grosvenor Square, 16 sales at Holland Park Villas and the penthouses at Clarges Mayfair. He’s witnessed ‘the greater resilience’ that prime central London developments possess in a challenging market, and notes that the ‘deal count’ is improving from recent years.
