Few agents stick to the patch where they grew up — literally. ‘I’m sitting where my cot was,’ chuckles Wyatt, director of the Virginia Water-based family firm he runs with his brother Rupert. The agency was founded by his grandfather, with early business coming from army officers and financiers — regulars replaced today by an ‘eclectic’ mixture of Gulf royals and UHNWs from the US and the Far East. ‘Looking after General Pinochet while he was under house arrest was interesting,’ he says, recounting a few colourful experiences. And he can even talk about ‘coming face to face with a man pointing a shotgun at me. Our client had bought an entire deserted village in Bordeaux from this chap, who thought he’d been conned. All ended well.’
