Offering something completely different to the big-brand chain operations that characterise our high streets – and, increasingly, the internet – boutique estate agencies are less prominent by their very nature, and must make a name for themselves with sheer hard work, deal after deal; client after client.
Often owned by the people who run them day-to-day, the stakes are high — and it’s been a particularly tough market out there recently.
To make sense of the bewildering array of options available in the capital, PrimeResi’s Prime Movers index, updated for 2019, profiles 50 small firms that represent the very best the industry has to offer, brokering the finest and most interesting high-value properties, whilst providing exceptional levels of service with a genuinely personal touch at every turn.

This isn’t about who has the flashiest office, or who tucks away the biggest deals; these firms have built highly-valued presences in their local communities – and demonstrate their value with every happy homemover.

RATIONALE: PrimeResi’s Prime Movers indices are based on independent research and a range of sources – including a survey of PrimeResi Professional Members, which resulted in over 1,000 nominations for individual firms. PrimeResi.com tracks notable prime residential deals, instructions and business moves throughout the year, closely monitoring which agencies are involved on both the buying and selling sides. Short-listed firms are given the opportunity to submit a company profile and business highlights from the last 12 months. The rankings are qualitative judgements that attempt to measure recent success and business developments, quality of service, influence, innovation, and reputation within the industry; they are not based on company size or quantity of deals done.
