‘Developers in prime central London are always looking to find a new selling point, something nobody’s done, something with a wow factor,’ says Forbes. He knows a thing or two about the wow factor: last year, his team sold to an HNW petrolhead a £16.5 million Knightsbridge house which, at the press of a button, turned the glass garage from frosted to clear, revealing a vintage supercar on the other side to guests in the living room. A countryman who spent his early years in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, Forbes moved to London to join Savills’ country and estates team in 1996. He took on the prime central London market from the firm’s Knightsbridge office in 1997 and joined Strutt & Parker in 2003.
