Partners Harry Langton and Alex Watzdorf met when the former was at Aylesford’s, the property juggernaut founded by his father, Andrew Langton. ‘He had the client and I had the house and we did a £43.5 million deal,’ says Langton, describing their seven-year partnership as one of ‘yin and yang’. The self-confessed ‘Chelsea boy’ and the German-born Watzdorf run a discreet service, sourcing properties from London to St Moritz, St Barths, Barbados, Greece and France. ‘We’ve got the best people across the globe to contact when we need to find the right home,’ says Langton. ‘We’ve lost a lot of deals because we’re always honest — it’s not about making a quick buck.’ Clients come through referrals alone.
