Activity in the million pound plus market is soaring as wealthier buyers make moves to bigger houses or new locations, according to our latest analysis from Rightmove. Houses for sale at £1 million and above are finding a buyer 18 days more quickly on average than this time last year. The analysis also found that million pound homes are outperforming the rest of the property market for the number of sales being agreed, up 95% in the south east year on year.
With this in mind, we are delighted to announce the launch of Curchods Prime, our premium marketing service for high value and exclusive residential properties throughout the Borough of Elmbridge and the wider reaches of our network throughout Surrey and south west London.
As a partner and on the main board of directors of the company, Warren Fraser will be heading up the day-to-day activities for Curchods Prime in addition to his existing role at our Walton branch, where he’s supported by my long-standing colleagues who continue to work tirelessly on our clients’ behalf to maintain our status as the market leaders in Walton-on-Thames.
Warren’s career in Walton-on-Thames, which spans some three decades, has earned us an outstanding reputation in the private estates of Burhill Park, Burwood Park and Ashley Park, as well as the other prime residential areas of Walton-on-Thames, of which we are immensely proud.
“I believe that our reputation and success over the last 30 years is the result of our knowledge, integrity, confidentiality and constant awareness of our duty of care to our clients, which is at the heart of all that we do and adds value to our clients in the process.
Despite challenging times, we have recently been instrumental in the sale of in excess of 70% of house sales during 2020 over £2m across KT12 and KT13 and are currently looking for more high value properties to sell.
It may also be of interest for you to know that a significant number of properties that we sell are handled discreetly, without ever being exposed to the open market. This is something that a number of our clients prefer, particularly when dealing with celebrities and high-profile clients.”
Partner & Head of Prime
Curchods Prime also offers the expertise of our Partner, Andrew Grant, whose name is synonymous with residents of St. George’s Hill. Andrew Grant has been personally involved in the sale of over 300 homes on St. George’s Hill and neighbouring private estates throughout Weybridge and as a result has a unique knowledge and insight into the prime residential market.

We are also joined in Curchods Prime by Adam Lockett, Head of Curchods Lettings division, who will be personally engaged with the letting and management of Curchods Prime rental properties.
