Jonathan Bramwell is a force to be reckoned with in the country house market. Having co-founded Savills’ independent buying service, Prime Purchase, he was headhunted by Knight Frank and is now head of their buying consultancy, The Buying Solution. His vigour in the £5 million bracket in the Cotswold region has been consistent for over a decade: ‘I have been the most active buying agent in the area for the last 17 years,’ he says. The last few years have been ‘tricky’, he says, due to the elections and the ongoing uncertainty of Brexit. But last year was a record year for The Buying Solution, as clients sought proper professional advice in an unclear market. Lack of supply remains the challenge in country and London.
