I offer a range of
property search

You might be moving out of London or looking for a forever home that’s in the same neighbourhood. Maybe you’re relocating to the UK and need a rental property while you find your feet. You may even be searching for an exciting renovation project or hunting for an interesting plot. I can help.

I work exclusively for you, representing your best interests with estate and letting agents, sellers and everyone else in the field of property. I’m independent, experienced and entirely on your side.

Here’s how
I work

No matter what I’m doing for you, I follow the same basic process. We start with an open discussion where you tell me about your project, and I share information about how I could help you. If you decide to work with me, then here’s what happens next:

In-depth consultation

Here’s where it all begins. We meet in-person or on Zoom to make sure I understand exactly what you’re looking for in a home and what your search criteria are.

With this in hand, I’ll then be able to:

  • Advise you on the best locations for your short and longer term needs and budget. This includes schools, commuting and amenities.
  • Ensure you’re in the best possible position to proceed in order to give you the advantage. If you need solicitors and mortgage brokers, I can recommend trusted partners who I’ve worked with in the past.


Property search & selection

This is where so many people find they get stuck – finding the perfect home! I do all the running around, so you don’t have to.

This includes:

  • Showing you areas that I think would work for you. This can include a personalised tour.
  • Using my extensive network to research and track down the best properties for you. This often includes properties which are privately or discreetly available.
  • Carrying out viewings on your behalf to shortlist the most suitable properties, saving both your time and money.
  • Making sure you are first through the door on properties which are due to launch on the open market.
  • Due diligence, sharing impartial advice and honest views, videos and photos so you can spend your time (and money) wisely, viewing only the most suitable properties.
  • Providing you with insight that will help you see the potential in properties you may otherwise dismiss.

Now it’s time to get down to business, advising you on the best negotiation strategy to secure the property for the best possible price and terms.

  • Close relationships with selling agents give me insider knowledge on offers and sold prices. I research and scrutinise a seller’s motivation and find out who else you might be competing against. This means I can advise you honestly on the best bidding approach.
  • Being a good negotiator isn’t about offering the most money – it’s about understanding what you need to do to tip the balance in your favour. This means my clients regularly save more than my entire project fee.
  • My negotiation techniques can stop you from making an expensive mistake by helping you know when it’s time to walk away from a deal.


The purchase process

You may have found a house and agreed a deal, but there’s still a lot of work to do. Having me by your side gives you extra reassurance and support throughout the lengthy purchase process.

  • The English home-buying process is uniquely arduous and full of ups and downs. I will support you throughout the legal process to exchange and completion, liaising with solicitors, agents and surveyors on your behalf.
  • I work hard to ensure the right level of momentum in order to complete your purchase as quickly and smoothly as possible, clearing blockages as they occur.
Moving into your new home

At last, you have a moving date. Let me help reduce the strain that comes with moving house or relocating, helping you settle into your new home more quickly.

This includes:

  • Providing recommendations of trusted, proven removal companies.
  • Providing recommendations for local tradespeople, suppliers and services to support any planned refurbishment projects.
  • Helping you settle into your new neighbourhood with advice and recommendations that meet your specific needs.

What are my fees like?

As an independent property search agent, I can afford to keep my fees lower than other property search agents.


My initial consultation is free, and after that I have a series of fees to cover the work I do for you. You can find out more about how I charge on my fees page.

Amanda and Greg, Farnham

Sam is fantastic! I was initially sceptical of using a Search Agent to find a property, but it has been an excellent decision. She has great knowledge of the local market, agents and prices and has found us a great house, well within budget. Her deep market awareness gave us the confidence to leave houses that were unsuitable either due to location, timings or price, subsequently dealing with the Agent to ensure an easy transaction when we found the right property.


Ellen and Rupert, Wimbledon

Sam’s support in finding a house has been invaluable to us. For all the properties we looked at with her we were always the first to view and many were completely off-market. She is the perfect partner to help find your dream home.


Claire and Mick, Geneva

An international relocation at very short notice! Sam managed the impossible task – finding us a lovely rental in a great location. Sam’s hard work, responsiveness, persistence, local knowledge and calm approach were absolutely key. She has also been on hand for us through the transition. Sam is an absolute pleasure to work with, we recommend her wholeheartedly and will be using her for our onward purchase!


James Webster, Hamptons Estate Agent

Sam is a pleasure to work with and stands out amongst the many Search Agents out there.
Extremely proactive, understands her clients’ needs and wants and doesn’t miss an opportunity. If you are looking for straight talking advice and some of the stress taken out of the process of buying a home, along with finding the needle in the haystack then have a conversation with Sam!


Bob and Louisa, Farnham

We were looking for a fairly specific type of property with land and potential. Sam was very well connected in the local area and helped us understand the on-costs of buying such a property. She also guided us in many other areas of the house sale and purchase process, saving us time and money


Katie and Jonny, London

Sam was an absolute delight to work with. We’d never even thought of using a property buying agent before this move and now we wonder how anyone gets through a move without one! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sam to anyone.


Emily and Kit, Farnham

Given the current housing climate we would not have stood a chance at finding our house without Sam. Her charisma and unrelenting energy, and dedication to the cause is something to be reckoned with. We could not be more pleased with the experience Sam has delivered and would highly recommend working with her.


Tracey and Paul, Hindhead

Working with Sam really added credibility to our position when viewing and bidding on properties. She always went above and beyond to ensure that she got us through the door first to view properties on and off market. With the property market being so volatile we really felt that having her experience to guide us during the bidding and negotiation process ultimately ensured that we got the house we wanted at the best price. We really couldn’t recommend her services enough.


Jess and Jonny, Los Angeles

From day one we knew we were in safe hands. We gave Sam a tough brief as a family of five with a long list of wants. Incredibly Sam found us a property off-market that ticked every one of the boxes at the bottom end of our budget. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Sam again or recommend her.


David Carter, House Partnership Estate Agent

We very much enjoy working with Sam … She has a good understanding of what her clients may be looking for and is happy to explore ideas to find the right property. The work does not stop once the house is found, and Sam shows a good understanding of the legal process and can help get the transaction through. It has been a pleasure to work with her.


Lucy and Iain, Malvern

Sam has been instrumental in guiding and counselling us through the unfamiliar world of house buying. She has always provided us with a clear and balanced perspective, ensured she understood the whole picture and has been an incredibly reassuring presence when we have needed to make big decisions. With her help we have secured a property which will be a superb investment and fantastic family home and we absolutely would not have reached this point without her expertise.


Rachel and Mark, Ewshot

After a year of our own unsuccessful search we appointed Sam. She immediately got exactly what we were looking for off-market. She gave incredibly helpful advice throughout the search, offer and negotiation and absolutely found us our dream house. We would definitely recommend her to anyone having trouble finding their perfect property!
