Managing director and founder
Prime Central London
Jo Eccles has spent more than a decade building her business, Eccord, from its initial beginnings as a pure buying agency back in 2006 into a search and management firm of the highest quality. The 2021 Spear’s Award winner says: ‘No client or requirement is the same. We may be buying a family home, building a long-term buy-to-let portfolio with inheritance proceeds or for children, or advising on how to achieve the best yields on a rental portfolio.’
Under Eccles’ stewardship, the firm has earned a gleaming reputation for discretion, honesty and insight. ‘We continue to believe that in London’s competitive property market it is essential to have expert representation you can trust,’ she adds.
Eccord has a loyal following of clients ranging from sports and media personalities to tech entrepreneurs and private equity partners. "We are entrusted by the top private banks and law firms to represent their clients discreetly, objectively and gain them a genuine competitive edge," Eccles says. The team are renowned for their creative and focused search process, acquiring 67% of properties off market last year. Eccord also provides property management services, overseeing £1.5 bn of residential property. Highlights from a busy year include the discreet acquisition of a true trophy home off market in SW London for £21m and creating a rare £10m buying opportunity on one of Chelsea's most prestigious garden squares.
