'The Dream Team' article featured in Vogue, GQ, Tatler and House & Garden - March 2019

Property is the biggest investment we make in life, so why shouldn’t the purchase process be commensurately enjoyable?

This is the fresh, modern philosophy of Delphine Colombo and Lucie Hirst who, as boutique buying agents Colombo Hirst, find residential properties for time-pressed clients. Let them help you find your perfect home, and in return you’ll get their experience, their contacts (alerting them to properties not even on the market), their negotiation skills and hard work, all with a personal touch.

 

With more than 20 years’ combined experience, the glamorous pair act only for buyers. They take time to understand your needs, then hand- hold you through curated viewings to the day of completion, when they inspect the property before any money changes hands to ensure all goes smoothly.

Hirst, formerly of Knight Frank and Savills (and daughter of acquisitions guru Nathalie), and Colombo, who spent 12 years with Winkworth in Knightsbridge and Hamptons International in Sloane Square, have teamed up to operate as Colombo Hirst, sourcing prime properties for private clients across the capital.

We caught up recently to find out how they’ve managed the transition, and what they’re seeing from the front line of the capital’s prime resi market…

Estate Agent TODAY - August 2018

Hirst is the daughter of Nathalie Hirst, who used to run Savills’ buying arm, Prime Purchase; Lucie Hirst is herself ex Savills and ex Knight Frank.

Colombo has worked for 12 years with Winkworth in Knightsbridge and Hamptons International in Sloane Square.
