Toby Anderdon

By Spear's

Anderdon identifies three golden qualities he associates with success in the property world.

‘In London it’s all about being personable, energetic and also very professional at the same time,’ he says. ‘If you can combine those three values simultaneously, then there are probably very few people that you don’t appeal to, both when you’re pitching for business and also when you’re looking after buyers.’

The ambitious associate started out in 2011 under the supervision of Andy Buchanan at John D Wood, where he ‘learnt a lot in a short space of time’, before joining Savills’ prime central London office in 2013. He’s glad to be recognised for overseeing numerous high-value deals, with one industry peer saying that in two years he has already created ‘a stir in their Knightsbridge office’.

Anderdon good-naturedly agrees: ‘For me to keep my place here and grow in my career, I’ve got to be billing some very good figures — and perhaps,’ he chuckles, ‘causing a stir.’

Last autumn’s stamp duty increases might cause agents to lose some buy-to-let investors this year, but he is positive about the overall benefits of investment in the market, on top of accumulating rent: ‘You would hope that if you buy on a long-term view, between five and ten years, then you’re going to make anything from 20-50 per cent on capital yield.’
