Beauchamp Estates and Hanover (West End) Residential Join Forces
Beauchamp Estates and Hanover Join Forces To Create London’s Premier Bespoke, Premium, Property Agency.
- London’s premier luxury, ultra-prime estate agent and number one fee earner, Beauchamp Estates, has today announced that it has joined forces with luxury boutique estate agent Hanover West End.
- The Marylebone Office of Hanover will now become Beauchamp Estates Marylebone and the fourth London location for Beauchamp Estates.
- Alex Bourne and Richard Douglas of Hanover will be Directors of Beauchamp Estates Marylebone.
- This new venture will lead to coverage for buyers and sellers across prime central London.
Beauchamp Estates Marylebone has been created through merging with Hanover West End, led by Directors Alex Bourne and Richard Douglas. Bourne and Douglas will stay on as part of the senior management team of Beauchamp Estates Marylebone and will retain the current Hanover West End team.
The Marylebone office will focus on Marylebone, Fitzrovia, Hyde Park Estate, Kings Cross/St Pancras and Paddington and will be Beauchamp Estates’ fourth London location, after Beauchamp Estates Mayfair Head Office, Beauchamp Estates St John’s Wood office and Beauchamp Estates Private Office, and its sixth office after international locations in France (Cannes), Italy (Florence) and Greece (Mykonos).
Beauchamp Estates, led by Founder and Managing Director Gary Hersham, Property Week’s current number one UK agent, has an unparalleled reputation and record in the premium residential property market. Over the last forty years Hersham has grown Beauchamp Estates into one of the leading and most widely respected property and real estate agency businesses for luxury property. Through selective and focused development offices have been established in European centres of wealth and associates in New York and Israel.
Beauchamp Estates, who already cover the Marylebone area as part of prime central London, had seen their instructions from the expanding Marylebone and Fitzrovia market increase and were looking to expand and secure an office presence locally. Alex Bourne and Richard Douglas built up their prime central London business over the last four years, having sold over £250 million of prime London property, and were seeking to move forward with a larger group, who shared their enthusiasm for London property, while remaining boutique and firmly focused on client needs, both for sales and lettings. While geographically close to Beauchamp Estates’ main London offices on Curzon Street Mayfair, the unparalleled growth of the Marylebone market in the last five years, coupled with its distinct characteristics, make Beauchamp Estates’ expansion in Marylebone a logical, timely and strategic move.
Gary Hersham, Founder and Managing Director Beauchamp Estates said:
“We are delighted to have been able to merge with Hanover West End. We believe that Alex and Richard are strong and professional and we are proud to have them as part of the Beauchamp Estates group.”
Alex Bourne, Director of Hanover West End said:
“We are very proud of what we have achieved to date with the business: achieving record prices in prime central London including Marylebone, Holland Park, Mayfair and Belgravia, creating a dynamic team of focused property professionals, who will be moving with us to become part of Beauchamp Estates.”
Richard Douglas, Director of Hanover West End said:
“The opportunity to bring our experience to Beauchamp Estates, growing and expanding the company, and to work with Olga and Gary is an exciting prospect.”
Olga Hersham, Director Beauchamp Estates – Private Office said:
“I am very pleased that we have been able to expand the Beauchamp Estates team with such experienced property professionals as a result of merging with Hanover. I look forward to working with the new team and welcome the fresh perspectives that Alex and Richard will bring, helping to ensure the continued success and growth of Beauchamp Estates."
The new senior management team at Beauchamp Estates will comprise Gary Hersham, Managing Director, Olga Hersham Director, Alex Bourne and Richard Douglas, Directors of Beauchamp Estates Marylebone.
The merged business will handle instructions priced from £500,000 to £200 million and will have a London based staff of 23.
Beauchamp Estates is London’s leading ultra-prime estate agency, with the highest number of instructions and contracts conducted in London for properties worth over £10 million and a portfolio of properties in excess of £2 billion.
