When asked about his USP, Harington replies: ‘Old age. It is age and experience, no one comes close to us on that in terms of our knowledge and background.’
He adds: ‘I’ve been a buying agent since 1986. I don’t know anybody that’s been in the business as long as I have.’
The charming Harington has almost 41 years of experience, having spent twenty years at Lane Fox establishing its buying side.
He was later headhunted by Knight Frank to set up its acquisition arm before he decided to found Haringtons in 2004.
The former Coldstream Guardsman, described by a contemporary as ‘a bastion of discretion’, has a high regard for exclusivity when dealing with clients.
