Lake & Co
Property consultancy and private office services
Lake & Co was established by Dewey Atkins and Natasha Lake in 2009 to provide a client-led property advisory service with a holistic approach and uniquely ethical principles.
Having previously worked in some of the most recognised real estate brands in the UK, with involvement in countless transactions and many developments throughout their careers, Dewey and Natasha are able to value engineer and optimise the complete property ownership process. Building on this experience, they have sought to create a unique company that can provide a discreet, personal and professional service for a select few, ensuring consistent market beating results.
An end-to-end service providing advice from inception through development, ongoing use and disposal
Over the last ten years, Dewey has developed Lake & Co into a firm that provides a single touch point for clients from inception, viability, acquisition through to design, development and ongoing asset management or disposal.
The business can best be described as a private office property function, with clients ranging from UHNW individuals, family offices, trusts and their advisors, to heads of industry, institutional funds, developers and other property professionals.
