Fast-growing luxury property buying agent Black Brick has poached one of London’s fast-rising agent stars, Alex Oliver (pictured, right).
Harrow-educated Alex has joined Black Brick after four years working in the capital including initially two years and four months at Foxtons in Brook Green as a sales negotiator, and then a year and eight months at Marsh Parsons in Notting Hill.
At M&P he was a senior sales negotiator and also one of the company’s top performing sales people.
During his career to date Alex says he has sold property worth £50 million in “some of the toughest property markets”.
“We are delighted to welcome Alex to the team,” says Camilla Dell, Managing Partner at Black Brick who, like Alex, is a former Foxtons employee (pictured, left).
“As a boutique company, we work on a one to one, bespoke basis with our clients and Alex’s knowledge, expertise and personal approach is the perfect fit for our company ethos.”
The company says its success is down to current market conditions and increased demand from buyers seeking impartial advice from the buying agency.
The growing team now consists of nine staff, with plans for further expansion in the coming months.
Black Brick was profiled recently by The Times newspaper and, during the interview, Camilla revealed that she set up her company in 2007 using her savings of £20,000, not bad given Black Brick made a pre-tax profit of £1.6m on sales of £3.1m last year.
The company helps high net worth individuals and families find properties to buy in London and beyond, and – she told the paper – helped a branch of the Saudi royal family buy a mansion in London for £55m.
