Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where did you grow up? Whereabouts do you live now?
I grew up between Caracas and Rome, and then moved to London in 1996. I have spent the last 9 years in Webbs Road between the commons. My mum is Italian and my father is Austrian Hungarian and I can speak 5 languages.
How long have you been an estate agent for?
I have been an agent since 2000 and have always been at D&G who I like because of the people and the marketing.
What’s the funniest story you have from your time at Douglas & Gordon?
I have many funny stories from my time at Douglas & Gordon. A good one was when I was mistaken as Japanese on the phone by one of our clients when I first joined.
When you’re not in the office or showing people around, what do you do in your spare time? Any interesting hobbies we should know about?
In my spare time you will find me with my family, my wife, our 2 year old daughter Lily-Amalia ,our dog Boogla, otherwise I’m boxing or painting art.
What questions do you most commonly get asked by clients/customers?
How much can I get? How much commission do you charge?
What advice do you have for people looking to buy or rent in Chelsea?
It’s a lovely place to live and a good investment, just don’t expect to be able to buy a pint of milk at the corner shop.
What do you love about Chelsea? What are your favourite hangouts? Where do you grab your coffee in the morning, or take a business lunch?
I feel at home in Chelsea because it is so cosmopolitan and full of energy while still having a village feel in one the most dynamic cities on planet earth. I love my coffees at Baker & Spice on Milner Street, my lunch from La Picena on Walton Street and just walking around Duke of York Square to de-stress. For a good business lunch I would say Chisou in Beauchamp Place is amazing.
What would you say to anyone looking to move into the area?
Moving in to the area? Enjoy!
If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about the property market, what would it be?
More property to sell please!
