RFR’s buying team is regarded as one of the most experienced and effective in the London market. Led by Sophie Rogerson, the team’s knowledge of the key Prime and Super Prime markets is exceptional. Born and educated in London, Sophie is regularly praised for her passion and empathy in translating her clients’ needs, her tenacity for finding the perfect property (however unique, rare and coveted that might be) and her adaptive and intuitive negotiating style. With an enviable track record for winning out in competitive situations and delivering exceptional buyers, she and the team are afforded access to the very best properties being discreetly offered off market or privately for sale.
The firm’s pre-eminent advisory practice, spearheaded by Richard Rogerson, represents the firm’s clients on a wide range of issues affecting their private homes and residential property investments. Areas of expertise include advising on property related disputes, due diligence and other investigations, planning and heritage matters, investment and valuation appraisals and leaseholder interests. We build effective teams of experts around our clients and the results we achieve are commercially and financially significant, with one client commending Richard’s ‘natural problem-solving abilities with a rare combination of intellect, experience and emotional quotient’.
Head of Projects, Simone Grandi, leads the residential projects team which has decades of experience co-ordinating ambitious and complex construction projects, delivering some of the finest homes for our private clients. We act as our clients’ trusted representative throughout the process, and they deeply value our rigorous approach to planning their projects, building the right team of industry experts and our ability to foresee and divert the minefield of potential issues, protecting their interests throughout the process.
In one client’s words, we perform the ‘unique role of trusted advisor, hands-on problem solver and project leader’ and in doing so remove so much of the stress and worry associated with these large-scale developments.
