I have had a few proud moments in my life,nauseating but true the births of my 3 daughters,being commissioned as an officer in The Coldstream Guards, being appointed Managing Director of D&G,but I can honestly say being named best UK estate agent at The Negotiator Awards 2009 is so far the proudest moment of my life.

I have worked for Douglas & Gordon for 23 years and slowly but surely we have transformed what was a small independent agency with one office off Sloane Square established in 1958 into what I honestly believe is the most innovative,exciting agency in the country.Our success is probably down to our culture,which is totally unique and the incredibly high caliber of staff..........believe me,it`s very hard to get a job here!

For our achievements to be recognized by 50 of the leading figures in the industry for the only award in the property industry (and there are a few) that you cannot actually enter is frankly thrilling.A huge thank you to the 200 people who work in our various different departments,(again nauseating but true),the reason D&G is such a special firm is pretty much down to them.
