Vicki Martin

I have been a London and suburbs relocation consultant for 4 years, having previously worked for 7 years as a letting’s agent in Belgravia/Victoria, which gave me comprehensive knowledge of the real estate market from all angles. It has also helped in forming good professional relationships with the letting agents — ensuring I am their first call when good hard-to-find properties come on to the market!

I have relocated a variety of prospective applicants, of all nationalities, from single professionals to families – who may also need help with finding appropriate schools – to large corporations looking to relocate executive employees. Not forgetting pets, of course, as I know they are an important part of the family!

Having lived in London since I was a small child, I cannot think of a better location in which to be a relocation consultant. London provides everything any client could ever want, whether it’s the vibrant city life or a more relaxed family atmosphere.

From age 12, I travelled from the suburbs to school in the heart of London, therefore discovering new areas when visiting school friends. I later moved to the South Bank in close proximity to the London Eye, as I loved the buzz of being in Central London. Having had my son Zac who is now six, I moved back to my childhood home in the Borough of Richmond Upon Thames to give us more space and to have the all-important garden for the various ball games he loves to play!

I love to travel and have travelled to most of the Caribbean Islands, having even lived in Grand Cayman for a few months, while my mum worked there as a court reporter when I was 17. America is another of my favourites: visiting Memphis for Grace Land, along with Chicago and New Orleans for my dad’s 70th is a trip I will never forget! My favourite food is Indian, so being able to eat Indian food for breakfast, lunch and dinner whilst in Goa made me never want to leave! I have definitely passed the travel bug onto my son who is interested in the different parts of the world and where we can go next!

I will enjoy getting to know you, learning how you live in your country and explaining what the similarities and differences will be living in London. My favourite aspect of my job is being able to meet new people and hopefully, as has happened, become friends.

Commuting to London from the Cotswolds

Since the pandemic hit, the Cotswolds have never seen such huge demand for the honey-coloured properties synonymous with the Gloucestershire villages.  A greater swing towards working from home and less need to be in offices in London on a daily basis has made people re-think their way of life, and particularly where they want to base themselves….
