We are delighted to welcome the newest members of our Chelsea Sales team, Toby Whittome and Judy Wykeham, who will be working alongside our successful Lettings team, Stephen Pamnani and Chloe Cooper, at our Cadogan Street office. Toby and Judy have worked together for many years and bring with them a wealth of Sales experience within the Chelsea property market.
Introducing Toby Whittome, Sales Director, Jackson-Stops & Staff Chelsea:
Toby has worked in Prime Central London for nearly 20 years and has a superb knowledge of the local area, specialising in Chelsea and Belgravia. Toby’s experience includes acting for clients at all levels for both the sale and acquisition of London properties. Before joining Jackson-Stops & Staff, Toby was a Partner at another major Central London firm where he became well known for his very personal approach and careful attention to his clients’ requirements as well as his in-depth knowledge of property, the market and ability to achieve the very best prices for his clients.
After studying ancient history and philosophy at university, Toby went on to develop his love of sailing. Indeed, this particular passion has seen him sail approximately 6,000 miles across the Pacific from French Polynesia to Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Borneo and across to Singapore; he has also sailed across the Mediterranean. Toby lives with his wife Emma and two daughters, Millicent and Eva, on the same farm in West Sussex where he was brought up. At the weekend he loves to spend time with his family as well as working on the farm and enjoying many of the usual country pursuits, including shooting and fly fishing. Toby himself comments that “I am extremely excited about joining Jackson-Stops & Staff – it is a highly respected brand with a long established office in Chelsea which is ideally placed to provide clients with a very personal and tailor made service.”
Introducing Judy Wykeham, Sales Manager, Jackson-Stops & Staff Chelsea:
Judy began her career in property about 17 years ago and witnessed many exciting changes in the prime central London property market; during that time, she learnt how certain areas attracted certain types of purchasers with varying demands and saw new build developments standing next to refurbishment projects of Victorian flats or houses – sometimes on a dizzying scale. Judy believes it is London’s deserved reputation for being a safe, international city with strong infrastructure, great educational facilities and fabulous shops and restaurants, combined with the world renowned museums and parks, which have always made it the best city to live and work in, with the Borough of Chelsea and South Kensington being particularly desirable.
Judy brings a valuable international perspective to her role, as she hasn’t always lived in London; she was born in Singapore and grew up in Malaysia, with a sojourn of some fourteen years in the Netherlands. As an expat through and through, she believes it is this which has stood her in good stead with international clients and that being able to understand the complexities of moving house and country – and swapping into different educational systems – has proven invaluable. Besides property, Judy has a real passion for fast cars – in particular, pre-1964 sports cars, having had the privilege of racing a Cobra 289 for a number of years… she can confirm that it’s not as easy as it looks. As Judy herself says, ‘I’m hugely excited about my new role at Jackson-Stops & Staff in Chelsea and very much look forward to racing around the Borough on behalf of my clients and buyers – but never above 30 mph’.
Both Toby and Judy will be in the fortunate position of being able to call upon 37 years of estate agency experience in the form of Charles Puxley. Charles has been a highly respected, popular member of the Jackson-Stops & Staff Chelsea team for many years and is now stepping into a Consultative role within the office, where he will continue to deal with the sale and acquisition of properties within the area.
