‘The two big months in the property market were June and July of last year,’ says Alex Christian, director of Savills’ London private office. With £250 million of sales logged by Savills’ Sloane Street and Knightsbridge outfits, he says 2018’s success was down to the fact that his clients – who usually look to spend more than £20 million – are ‘totally Brexit-proof’. Furthermore, with the pound weak there is an influx of US money. However, he adds: ‘People aren’t playing the market because they want to make a quick buck.’ Rather, they are viewing property primarily as a place to live, and a safe place to hold capital long-term.
