Russell is the prodigy (and son) of the esteemed Alan Russell, the man who founded the company 37 years ago.
He had initially flirted with the idea of entering the art world, but something drew him into property, where he has thrived alongside his father and three siblings.
Seven years of experience has recently earned him the position of director in residential sales: ‘It seems to be in the blood,’ he says.
‘It seems to be an emerging pattern in the family.’ There’s a great chemistry between the family team, Russell says.
Operating from a quiet residential building in Chelsea, instead of a large shop front, Russell says, has been a great strength, which has led to many off-market transactions.
