    Looking forward to 2011?

    I think, apart from a minority who specifically deal with people who are so rich that, unlike Stuart Baggs they really are a Brand, most of us will be glad to see the back of 2010. For the doom mongers it’s been an irritating year as prices have held up, but it does hold the promise of salvation for them…..or does it.

    D&G Kids Company Day 1st December 2010

    There have been many highlights in my 24 years at Douglas & Gordon, but none comes close to the D&G/Kids Company Charity day. All our offices were closed on 1st December, and D&G’s 200 employees donned their Kids Co hoodies and took to the streets in icy conditions to forage for food. Never have I been so proud of this company, as each and every person worked their socks off from dawn to dusk, Block Management wrapping presents all day at Kids Company Headquarters, and the sales offices using all of their best selling techniques to extract food, toys and money from the good people of D&G land.

    Floating just far enough above the quagmire

    For years it’s been said that what starts in London spreads out to the rest of the country. Whether that’s been true in the past or not those of us who live in London recognize now perhaps that there’s a disconnect between us and the rest. Resentment outside the Capital towards those of us that live and work here has always been rife, but having been convinced we were all in this together I’m beginning to think that the London housing market might just be different, and lucky, enough to avoid some of the larger slowdowns affecting those living elsewhere.

    Market Report October 2010

    As the frequency of negative reports on the UK housing market gathers pace, the impact on the Central London market is predictable – slowdown. As we predicted in our summer report, this does not necessarily mean price falls.

    Helping 1st Timers Onto The Housing Ladder

    Helping 1st Timers Onto The Housing Ladder - Can Parents Help Their Kids Without Just Signing A Blank Cheque? Things are tough for First Time Buyers. While many have been counting down the days until they can finally buy a property of their own rather than living under their parents’ roof or paying someone else’s mortgage, the events of the past few years have conspired against them in a way that has left many wondering if they will ever be able to clamber on to that first rung.

    D&G are going foraging for food on 1st December

    Things aren’t as bad as you might think – we are still able to eat at D&G, even though the market has changed. However, there are thousands of children in London who are not so lucky. D&G have worked for over 10 years with the homeless charity Shelter. This year, however, they are doing something very different. All 200 D&G employees will dedicate 1st December to the extraordinary children’s’ charity Kids Company.
