Benham & Reeves’ have been operating in Hampstead for over sixty years, in fact it’s where the company began its story. With our Heath Street branch conveniently located opposite the Tube station in Hampstead Village and staff who live locally, there isn’t much that we cannot tell you about the area and its historic properties. From handsome period conversions to Edwardian mansion blocks, Victorian terraces and of course, the grand period properties close to the west side of Hampstead Heath. New build developments have also popped up on the fringes of the village making Hampstead one of top rental spots in London.

Buyers here will find wide leafy avenues and winding lanes as well as small elegant squares. The area has been popular over the centuries with artists and writers, so there is a really creative, individual character here and the streets are packed with interesting, independent shops and cafés. Hampstead Heath itself, a haven of open green space and woodland with spectacular views towards central London from Parliament Hill is what attracts many people to the area. Hampstead also has some of the best private schools in the country which makes it very popular with families. And central London is less than 10 minutes away by car and just a handful of Tube stops from the West End.

There is so much choice when it comes to property in Hampstead and our team of residential sales experts are well placed to guide and advise our clients, whether they are buying, selling or renting a property here.

Where in London do you live? North London at the moment.

What do you like most about working in Hampstead as an area? Properties in Hampstead have a wealth of character and a distinctive charm, unlike anywhere else in London. I enjoy the quaint village lifestyle, while being so close to central London.

Tell me something about your career and what key skills you now bring to your role? Although I graduated from University as an Aerospace Engineer, I discovered my true calling when I did a stint as a Property Negotiator during my gap year. Since then I have gained good career experience working in the residential lettings sector for several years where I have developed a good understanding of the property sector and how it ticks.

What are your passions outside work? I am passionate about travel, health and fitness. I enjoy playing football and am a proud Manchester United fan!
What does your day to day? My role entails monitoring and mitigating compliance risk by ensuring we observe appropriate regulatory and legal requirements in all aspects of our business.

What are your key skills and what do you like most about your role? I find that an organised approach and a forensic attention to detail are vital attributes in my job. It’s not uncommon for me to reinvestigate a document that has already been double or triple checked! My work also overlaps with many other parts of the company, so I get to work collaborate with other employees which I really enjoy.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes is a weekly passion. I also take plenty of opportunities to travel.
Where do you live? I live in North London where the Victorian architecture is so beautiful.

What do you like most about working in property? London has a rich history and I feel this is really reflected in the properties it has to offer. There are so many different types of property too which you don't get in all parts of the world. I love the cobbled streets and mews that can be found in the backwaters of London.

What is your favourite local cafe or bar? I love my cocktails, Alice House in West Hampstead is a hidden gem. The cocktails are amazing and staff are super friendly.

What are your passions outside work? Keeping fit and healthy is very important to me and I love cooking, particularly experimenting with different recipes.

Where do you live? I currently live in Pinner, Middlesex which is an outer suburb of North West London.

What do you like most about the properties in North West London? On the basis of their architectural variety and historical interest alone, my favourite are Hampstead properties which are almost unmatched anywhere in London. The way in which charming period properties have been integrated with newer homes gives the neighbourhood plenty of choice and a great village feel. Close proximity to Hampstead Heath while, at the same time, being only 20 minutes away from the West End is another major plus point.

Tell us a little about your property career? Having been in the North London property business for nearly 35 years, I have had the advantage of working with, and alongside, many talented and respected individuals. My early years as a sales negotiator were spent in Mill Hill until I left to join Benham & Reeves Sales under its former owners. Now with the sales and lettings businesses under one roof and the ownership of Anita Mehra, it’s good to be resuming my Associate Director position and heading up the North London sales team.

What are your passions outside work and how do you relax? Being a passionate West Ham United supporter, I endeavour to attend every home match. I enjoy Bikram hot yoga, overseas travel and working on my (admittedly shaky) golf game. My wife and I love taking long country walks and being surrounded by nature.
What do you like most about the properties in Hampstead? I love period architecture. The richness of history is evident in the Victorian and Georgian properties that you encounter throughout the NW3 postcode. I grew up and still live in the area and so it’s quite refreshing to see some of the modern buildings coming on stream too.

Tell us a little about your property career? I have been an estate agent for approximately 25 years mainly in Hampstead and neighbouring areas working for a few well-known companies at senior level. I’ve been a member of the NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents) for approximately 15 years.

What are your passions outside work and how do you relax? Keeping fit and having a sharp mind is important to me so I play tennis and squash locally and also practice Hot Yoga in Primrose Hill. Seeing family and friends and relaxing with a good book, walks on the Heath, watching sporting events and appreciating good culture is all part of how I wind down.
What is your favourite part of London? Hammersmith – it’s one of the best places in West London for live music, riverside strolls and taking in the river views from a pub terrace along the way.

What key skills do you bring to your role? My strongest attribute is my determination. I take on every challenge head-on and do what I need to accomplish my goals, even when the challenge is difficult. I enjoy communicating with people and developing my soft skills.

What are your passions outside work for relaxation? I love dancing salsa! For me, it’s a great way of keeping fit and complements a healthy lifestyle, both physically and emotionally. Benefits include keeping me in a good mood which the sales team seem to appreciate!
Where do you currently live? I live in a quiet suburb of West London.

What do you like most about the area where you work? Hampstead is such a pretty place to work.  The village is very well served by all amenities as well as artisan eateries and pubs. The architecture is mainly period and of course the Heath provides plenty of green space to unwind and enjoy.

Tell me a little about your property career & experience? Though recent to the real estate industry, my time spent working as an office administrator has allowed me to bring transferable skills to my role and Benhams. I’m organised and have good document management and IT skills and I’m also adaptable which is needed working alongside such a busy sales team.

What are your passions outside work and how do you relax? I enjoy archery every weekend and sometimes I also participate in some club competitions. It really helps me mentally whilst providing a full body workout at the same time.
