In the face of a tough market, Hannah Aykroyd launched Aykroyd & Co in Spring 2018 and has had a cracking inaugural year, completing more than £60 million in PCL residential transactions.
This should come as no surprise. As an alumna Director of gold-standard property agency VanHan, Hannah brings with her over a decade of experience, along with an extraordinary track record and network.
“The London market is complex and competitive”, says Hannah. “Having a trusted advisor with excellent connections and the ability to identify the vendor’s pressure points and negotiate firmly is incredibly important.”
Hannah has won the loyalty of her HNW clients by unearthing exceptional off market opportunities and then ensuring the smooth completion of transactions through attention to detail, discretion, and customer care that goes above and beyond.
“We offer a highly intensive service, and each member of the team looks after no more than 4-6 clients simultaneously”, explains Hannah. “Our clients’ main issue is often a lack of time. We preview 40-50 properties on our clients’ behalf ahead of the first tour. This is time-consuming for us, but it is very efficient for our clients, who know we’re only presenting the very best properties that fully meet their brief.”
Hannah, who also holds a law degree, has been joined at Aykroyd & Co by former VanHan colleague Sophie Bonsor and Edward Towers MRICS. Between them, they have over 30 years’ of experience.
“Having a close-knit team of highly-qualified professionals allows us to offer a truly personal service,” says Hannah, “advising clients at every step of the transaction, sharing a journey with them that often goes beyond completion.”
