Wetherell knows Mayfair like nobody else, as his Twitter handle @mayfairguru suggests. He has focused on the area for his entire career and has joked that if he had to quit his job, he would be ‘practically unemployable’. That seems rather unlikely.
A property millionaire and TV star in his own right after featuring in BBC2’s Under Offer, Hersham boasts about transactions worth £559 million in 2015, the flagship being a single Mayfair property sold for £85 million.
A heavyweight who remains ‘available 24/7’, according to colleagues, Hewlett heads up Savills’ property juggernaut in London. He has over 30 years’ experience in the prime central market and it shows, having been involved in transactions worth well over £100 million in 2015 — a ‘tough’ twelve months for a market that’s been slowing for nigh on two years (the ‘final nail’ being the change to stamp duty).
A property veteran of four decades, Abrahmsohn counts the world’s wealthiest as clients — Lakshmi Mittal, Simon Cowell and Ringo Starr among them. His firm enjoys a virtual monopoly on ‘Billionaires’ Row’, Bishops Avenue in East Finchley, where asking prices range up to £100 million and beyond.
‘For most agents, the first half of  was really, really dire — and for me it was really, really good,’ says Hirst, Spear’s Property Adviser of the Year. Perhaps it’s no surprise she saw a ‘huge’ number of ‘very large’ transactions in 2015.
