Tennis links from the past to the present

Father of Lawn Tennis

Major Walter Clopton Wingfield

With the eyes of the world on SW19 for the next two weeks as the annual Wimbledon tennis tournament gets underway, we were delighted to discover that our Pimlico branch also shares links with the much-loved game.

The inventor, or ‘Father’ of Lawn Tennis as he is called on his blue plaque, was a gentleman by the name of Major Walter Clopton Wingfield, who resided in Belgrave Road and St. George’s Square in Pimlico.

Fast forward to the present day and our Pimlico Jackson-Stops’ team is delighted to be marketing several properties for sale or to rent on this same Square, including a lovely Grade II listed, 2 bedroom apartment available to rent for £750 pw (fees apply) and a stunning six bedroom freehold house situated on the Square.

Do get in touch if you would like to discuss any of these opportunities with the team, they would be delighted to find the perfect match for you!

Open House, Anybody?

Open HouseOur Richmond Sales Director, Patrick Glynn-Jones, considers the pros and cons of staging an Open House event:

Perhaps rather surprisingly, I would tend to say that certain elements of the traditional Open House model are questionable. As an agent, we of course focus on the best interests of our clients at all times. So, if condensing viewings to a single day to create a greater sense of urgency in a slower market helps to achieve a strong sale price that is aligned with, or exceeds, the seller’s expectations, then we see no disadvantages. However, the onus is on the agent to explain all facets of an Open House from the outset, advantages and disadvantages, and for the seller to then decide if it’s a good way forward. Naturally, if the right result is not achieved at the event, the marketing campaign continues until it is.

When the Open House concept was first introduced, we as agents were told that an exacting Open House model should to be followed to optimise the likelihood of a positive outcome and to work effectively – an Open House board would be displayed, flyers would be distributed locally, magazine advertising would promote the event for a fortnight before, and so on. On the day itself, everyone was invited to view the property within the stipulated viewing timeframe, which could result in a distinct lack of personal space whilst navigating the staircase.

We have chosen to update this model, so that each potential buyer now has a scheduled appointment during the Open House hours, which allows them to feel valued and to gain a better understanding of the space (yes, they may pass another prospective buyer on the threshold, but it won’t be on the stairs). Open House marketing does reach a wide local market because it will have been promoted for a fortnight or so….and in this online age, the reach of event invitations on social media are not to be underestimated.

A question we are sometimes asked by those considering an Open House is how long they should wait for a stronger buyer if they receive a good offer as a result of the event.

I would always say that if a potential buyer approaches us to say that they can’t view on the Open House day, we will accommodate them soon afterwards if they are able to compete with other people who have attended the event, from a buying status perspective. Once a property is in the market, the onus must be on the buyer to view as soon as possible in order to secure the property – or not – as the case may be. We would always attempt to make the property available to view if a buyer expresses strong interest, but within a short period of time of the Open House event so as not to jeopardise interest generated from the day.

If you have any questions about staging your own Open House at your property please do get in touch.

CLEVES SCHOOL’S NIGHT OF GLITZ & GLAMOUR!

Weybridge’s Cleves School PTA pulled out all the stops for a night of glitz and glamour on Saturday night, when they held their annual Ball at Shepperton Studios. We were proud sponsors of the evening, which was held to raise funds for the school and its pupils. Over 150 parents, carers, friends and associates of the school attended and enjoyed the wonderful and historic surroundings of Shepperton Studios. Guests arrived to a champagne reception before being ushered to the main room for dinner, followed by a private auction and a chance to dance the night away. Congratulations to everybody who helped organise such a fantastic event, with particular mention to Amanda and Marianne for all their hard work and attention to every glitzy, glamorous detail on the night!

The Richmond May Fair Ball raises spirits…and funds for deserving causes

The twenty-fifth Richmond May Fair Ball took place last Friday evening with over 400 people in attendance, including our very own Patrick Glynn-Jones, Sales Director of our Richmond branch, and his wife, Jo. A champagne reception was followed by an exceptionally good three-course dinner, which included saddle of venison and a delicious morello cherry panna cotta, all beautifully served despite catering for such a large number of people. The raffle boasted a top prize presentation by Amanda Redman (‘The Good Karma Hospital’ actress) to a very happy guest on our table, whilst a live auction raised over £30,000 for charities Home Start, Momentum and My Life Films, which was followed by a highly successful silent auction. For those guests with an iron constitution, there was also the opportunity to ride a bucking bronco! John Culshaw did a set and had us chuckling over his impersonations of Trump, Graham Norton, Jeremy Clarkson and others.

The Ball is an exceptionally well-organised annual event in the Richmond diary, well worth attending next year if you are somebody who enjoys the idea of combining a fabulous evening with a contribution to some very deserving causes.

Is there a resolution?

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , — JSS London @ 4:14 pm

Patrick Glynn-Jones Director, Richmond Sales

Talk continues in today’s property media about the latest report from The Resolution Foundation, which deals with the various issues surrounding the contentious issue of property taxation.

Our Richmond Sales Director, Patrick Glynn-Jones, offers his own thoughts on this topic: ‘In the report, a number of proposals are covered, including Capital Gains Tax (CGT) concessions for those who sell investment property to first-time buyers. This might compensate landlords for some of the monies lost since the tax regulations changed for those with investment property….diminishing mortgage interest offsetting; less ‘wear and tear’ allowance and, if bought recently, the additional 3% stamp duty on additional property purchased. Also under discussion was the proposal to halve stamp duty tax, in order to increase property mobility. Any estate agent will tell you that the current levels are a significant ‘sticking’ issue for buyers, particularly those looking to upsize, when the figures involved make for eye-watering reading. Additionally, an overhaul of the current Council Tax calculations was discussed, so that they align with property values…as they are now. It’s worth noting that there was no support for CGT on the sale of one’s principal private dwelling, however.’’

If you would like to discuss any of the topics detailed above with Patrick in greater detail he would be delighted to hear from you. You can get in touch with the Richmond office on 020 8940 6789.

Jackson-Stops Gets Tough for Charity

Members of our London Offices put their best (muddy) feet forward when they took part in a challenging Tough Mudder event last weekend, raising funds for the group’s nominated charity, Brain Tumour Research.

The Jackson-Stops London team worked with colleagues from our associated company, Frank Harris & Co, to push and pull, heave and haul, run and slide their way through five miles of hilly terrain near Henley upon Thames, which was broken up along the way with various obstacles to keep them on their toes.

The day was full of fun, laughter and mud – all in aid of a brilliant cause, and the Jackson-Stops’ Tough Mudder team is now busy planning their next charitable challenge. Watch this space.
If you would like to donate to our chosen charity, you can click here to our Just Giving page. Thank you.

International Woman’s Day

Georgina Clarke, Pimlico Lettings Director

Georgina Clarke, our Pimlico Lettings Director, discusses International Women’s Day 2018 and the inspiring event she attended to mark the occasion:

On the 8th March I was delighted to attend a panel discussion hosted by the Victoria BID at the St. James’s Court Taj Hotel. The panel, hosted by journalist and author Radhika Sanghani, comprised high profile business women working in the local area including; Susan Place Everhart; COO for Orchid Project; Justine Brown, HC Director for DP World; Susan Belchar, Associate Hospital Manager for North East London Foundation Trust; and Clare Fone, Founder Westminster Physiotherapy and Pilates Centre.

The discussion revolved around the biggest changes for woman in the last 100 years and what we can expect to see in the next 100 years. It was a positive and uplifting debate with particular emphasis on how far society and woman’s rights have come since our grandmothers’ days. All panellists are successful business women and mothers and accepted that there are still difficulties and sacrifices to be made. However, all were in agreement that the barriers have been removed and that there are opportunities for hardworking women who want to achieve success in their field. It was also noted that rights for fathers in the workplace have also been achieved and that all success is about good support and good partnerships, however that is achieved on a professional and personal level.

So what do women bring to the workplace? One member of the panel suggested that women bring ‘empathy and intuition’ and ‘that differences should be celebrated on an equal platform’. Undeniably, men and woman are different, so it was felt that quotas for equal representation cannot work, because ultimately you need to employ the best person for the job…and it was suggested that sometimes the Board would be better off with 100% women! And what about the gender pay gap? A topic for some ongoing debate, no doubt.

What advice do these phenomenal women of Victoria give to us? Clare of WPPC said we are all aiming for a happy and healthy life and that our personal well-being, both emotionally and physically, is paramount. Stick to your core values and recruit to these core values and behaviours. Clare had overcome many professional hurdles in doing so. Justine advised us to ‘work hard but don’t work late’, ‘take on every challenge’, ‘don’t say no, but get organised’. Susan of Orchid said that ‘every woman has the right to make their own choices’ whatever they may be, and that even having a career break doesn’t stop you from achieving your goals; also, ‘you can’t have it all, all at the same time, all of the time.’ And  Susan Belchar stated that ‘we need good education.’ It was concluded that we need cultural awareness, good communication and understanding in the workplace.

Working as a senior Director at Jackson-Stops within the Lettings industry as I do, I feel there has been a noticeable shift in gender-typical roles. Lettings has predominantly been dominated by female employees throughout the eighteen years of my career, but I have seen a significant increase in male recruitment and managers as the job is increasingly recognised, in London at least, as a sound professional career path. With more and more legislation and relevant expertise and being required, this is no longer a back office ‘female’ administrative role and, in many estate agencies, lettings is taking the lead in terms of income. I am delighted to say that Jackson-Stops has a balanced, professional workforce and has succeeded by sticking to its core values and ethos, remaining a supportive and nurturing employer. Companies that look after their people look after their clients!

International Men’s Day is on 19th December!

Victorian Living

Victoria has undergone, and is still undergoing, mass regeneration with huge investment by Land Securities.Victoria Street, once dominated by 1960s/1970s blocks, is now a shopping and eating destination in its own right with contemporary shiny glass buildings.  An article in the London Magazine late last year highlighted the shops and companies that are attracted to this area for its transport hub and easy access to Gatwick.

We are currently marketing a flat to rent in Artillery Mansions, Victoria Street, opposite the old ‘New Scotland Yard’.

Winter Watch

With temperatures dipping to below freezing and the promise of snow settling in the next few days, it seems particularly apt that this is the week that the BBC’s Winterwatch began again, with live updates from the team based at a National Trust Estate near Sherbourne. One of the highlights so far has been the discussion of the results of the annual RSPB bird watch, in which members of the public take a look at the bird life in their own gardens.

If all this twitching has inspired you to get involved without leaving the comfort of your arm chair, you too can count the birds in your garden. Our Jackson-Stops team in Teddington can offer a range of wonderful properties for sale or to rent, all with gardens to enjoy the wildlife in.  


 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And if you’re looking for something much closer to the action then do get in touch with our associated Jackson-Stops’ branch in Sherborne, the team would be delighted to be of assistance.

Best foot forward at Jackson-Stops

A recent article in Country Life bought an all too familiar smile to the face of the male contingent in our Pimlico Office, who have lived by the ‘yellow sock Friday’ sartorial code for many a year already! Take a look at the article to find out what your hosiery says about you:

If you feel you would like to treat your feet further with some underfloor heating, why not arrange to view this beautiful apartment being marketed by our Pimlico office, which features warm floors!

If you consider yourself more of a country person and less of a city dweller, some jazzy pink socks would look right at home on a fireside footstall in this Shepperton property, being marketed by our Weybridge office.

If you are in the market for a fancy pair of socks to update your wardrobe, the London Sock Company has a wide variety of patterns and styles to suit every fancy sock enthusiast!

Jackson-Stops held its annual conference on Friday 2nd February and it turned out to be a truly inspiring day of speakers, debates and information about the latest offerings in the world of ‘proptech’, a frequently heard buzzword within our industry at the moment.

The daytime event was followed by a black tie awards ceremony, where our London group was delighted to win the award for ‘best social media’ across our Consortium of 46 national offices…what better way for us to share the good news than on here, one of our social media platforms?

Jackson-Stops, the perfect match

During the January transfer window, Premier League clubs spent a record breaking £430m, with a number of high profile moves being made and a cool £150m being spent on deadline-day alone. The most expensive move on the final day of the winter transfer window occurred when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund for £56m, a club record.

Elsewhere in London, Tottenham signed Lucas Moura from Paris St-Germain for £23m and Olivier Giroud completed a £18m move from Arsenal to Chelsea, as deadline-day spending surpassed the previous record set in 2011.

At Jackson-Stops we recognise the unique nature of the football industry. Our experienced and friendly team ensures they gain a full understanding of a player’s personal and family requirements, timeframe and price objectives to ensure requirements are fulfilled with the best possible solutions.

We work hand in hand with club Player Liaison Officers, player agents and other external advisors to help ensure the transfer to a new club and the relocation process is simple and successful. We pride ourselves on providing a tailored service to help ensure sudden moves run seamlessly, and we are able to source homes from a wide range of sources, which often includes access to ‘off-market’ properties where discretion is paramount.

Whether you’re transferring from within the UK or from abroad, Jackson-Stops’ leading property experts work tirelessly to ensure we fully understand your needs and are able to streamline the entire process, saving you time, money and hassle. From sourcing accommodation at short notice to finding a property to purchase; selling a former home or creating an investment property portfolio, we have the expertise and contacts to serve your requirements.

For more information about how we can help, please contact Amelia Redington on 020 8879 6610 or ameliaredington@jackson-stops.com

Kyle Edmund…a new British contender for Wimbledon?

Following Kyle Edmund’s excellent performance last week at the Australian Open, which saw him reach the semi-finals, it appears we have another up and coming star in British tennis. Edmund became only the sixth British man in the Open era to reach a grand slam semi-final and his incredible performance has got our Wimbledon team thinking….could he do the same at Wimbledon this year? Edmund clearly has an excellent all-round game but his serve and forehand, in particular, are both up there with the very best in the world, which could make him a very dangerous opponent at this year’s Championships.

Being based in Wimbledon village, we love witnessing first-hand how British success creates a palpable buzz during Wimbledon fortnight. Needless to say, we’ll be rooting for Kyle and all our other British players when the championship comes around in July.  If you own a property in the Wimbledon area and are interested in short letting your home during the tennis (2nd July-15th July) or at any other time during the year, our dedicated short let department would be happy to help. A short let is a great way to achieve a premium rental for your property, generating a valuable income for you to enjoy; our established Property Management department is based in Wimbledon and is able to offer advice on preparing your property so that it’s completely ready for your tenants to move into from day one. Please do get in touch for more information or visit our office on Church Road next time you are passing by.

Harry Buchanan, Director of Sales in Pimlico & Westminster, discusses how his higher percentage to guide price sales achieved have brought significant financial benefits to his clients

Since 3/4/17, property in Pimlico has sold at an average of 93.6%* of asking price; in that same period, our Jackson-Stops Pimlico team has been achieving an average of 96.2%**. When you consider that the average price of a property selling in Pimlico was is in the region of £1.3m*** (period 3/4/17 to 16/11/17), that higher percentage-to-guide figure translates to pocketing over £30,000 more on a sale at this level.

Crest Nicholson’s Upper Longcross Garden Village in Chobham Lane, Longcross got thoroughly into the festive spirit yesterday, when Santa and his reindeer paid a visit to excited children and grown-ups alike.

Outside, Dancer and Prancer waited patiently and enjoyed the attention from their visitors, though there were no confirming sightings of a red-nosed Rudolf…
