We would be happy to put you in touch with past clients, but here are some extracts from letters received. 

I cannot thank you enough for your patience, not just in the difficult purchase phase but also in the whole four years prior to this.

Not once did you make me feel that you thought I might be wasting your time, never did I think that you were trying to push me into something that was not quite right for us. You were encouraging and supportive during the whole time we worked together and I am so grateful to you for this. Now I have a home for my family and it feels just right and it is thanks to you.

Apart from all of the above I think that it was also a bit of a bargain. We've got a lot of work to do and it may well lead us into debt, divorce or death, but I'm willing to give it a shot!

Living in the US, we were concerned that identifying, far less buying, a property would be a long and complicated process. We had an approximate idea of what we wanted, but it was pretty approximate.

The team at Prime Purchase quickly and easily guided us to a more complete brief, where we had an excellent understanding of the market by geography and type of property. The selection process was remarkably quick and painless. Their negotiation skills were excellent, as was their local knowledge, guidance and advice.

Having met most of the team at the early stage of our search, we would have been happy to have worked with any of them. From our first meeting to exchange of contracts, it took 12 weeks, which was quite remarkable, given our initial uncertainty as to our specific needs.

We could not have been happier with the outcome and would highly recommend Prime Purchase. A seemingly difficult process was made incredibly easy.

James was the ultimate professional and without his assistance we could not have achieved the end result. I have never been educated so quickly on any subject in such a short period of time. I knew next to nothing about the London property market and while I am not professing to be an expert now, my knowledge base has been expanded vastly.

We had a bit of fun on the way but when you are viewing in excess of 30 properties over two days a sense of humour is essential.

I can honestly say, without hesitation, that I recommend others use your service.

I recently bought a Grade-I listed house, which probably wouldn’t have happened without Prime Purchase. Having someone on my side with many years’ experience of buying these houses helped me focus on the real issues and what I really wanted. I looked at a number of houses, most of which were never publicly available and was able to save many wasted trips by getting the true story behind several incredible-looking properties. I was able to compare the house I eventually did buy against the many that I saw. Negotiating through a buying agent gave me a degree of separation from the seller, probably leading to a more frank and productive discussion between buying agent and selling agent.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use Prime Purchase again. They got me access to houses I would never have seen advertised for sale and covered their fees, and more, by achieving a lower price than I would have managed on my own. Buying a large country house raises a different range of issues from staffing, running costs and maintenance through to obtaining listed building consent for alterations. Having spent decades dealing with country houses, Robin and Charlie were able to answer these questions easily.

Prime Purchase have recently helped us find a family property in Islington.  We were relocating back to the UK after eight years away and we were unsure of the London property market and where would best suit us as a family.  As we were not based in the UK we had a very short window for viewing properties.  The team arranged two days of solid viewings and by the end we had seen all that Islington had to offer and therefore were able to confidently submit an offer for a four bedroom house near Highbury Fields.  The negotiations went to sealed bids and Prime Purchase navigated us through the potentially stressful process calmly and expertly and we exchanged and completed 8 weeks after our first meeting. 
In addition to helping us find our new home Prime Purchase have done everything possible to make the relocation as stress-free as possible.  The team recommended insurance brokers, solicitors and surveyors as well as contractors for our renovations and nurseries for our children. Where there were some damp issues with the house Prime Purchase helped arrange for quotes to remedy the problems and negotiated to have the house price reduced accordingly.   The team also contacted  the utility companies and the council on our behalf to set-up new contracts. Whilst the property was unoccupied Prime Purchase held some keys and made regular visits to check all was in order and as a final detail way above and beyond her duties the team arranged for a fun toy to be waiting in our son's room so his first visit to the house would be positive and memorable.
Prime Purchase looked after us incredibly well and we would have no reservations recommending them to friends, family and other buyers.  We can honestly say that there wasn't a moment of stress throughout the entire process.  We will definitely be using them again.

Being in Singapore has allowed us to buy a property in London to rent out while we live overseas. We looked into various properties on the market and quickly found that managing the buying process from Singapore was going to be very tough. We met Prime Purchase in Singapore and were able to explain exactly what our objectives were and the type of property we were looking for. We had to consider very carefully the cost of Prime Purchase as part of our overall investment but having now bought the property I can say with confidence we did the right thing in using their services. We were well supported, updated and managed throughout the process and our objectives were well understood. We had the confidence to buy the property blind given the information and care in which Prime Purchase presented the property to us.
Once we bought it we travelled to London and met in one day the buying agent, the renting agent and the builder to agree the budget and scope of work that had to be done to get the propoerty rented. Prime Purchase organised everything for us and also introduced us to an excellent mortage broker and lawyer who took care of everything we needed for the purchase. The property is now complete and ready to rent out - we are delighted with the work that has been done.
Many thanks to all at PP for a fantasic job.


Thank you for all you did for us in finding our property. We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the times we spent with you on this interesting search! You made it so easy! We shall certainly recommend you to any others in a similar situation!!


Thanks so much, James - for this and for all your help, patience, planning etc during this process: one which we shall gladly recommend to others. You couldn't have been more kind and/or considerate to two old buffers!!


We recently moved to London from Canada.  The method of buying a house is completely different and Prime Purchase thoroughly explained the process.  They recommended an area based on our criteria and took us to see many houses, some good and some for a basis of comparison.  The team explained the pros and cons and potential of each one.

When we found "the one", our agent acted on it quickly and professionally, securing a period of exclusivity and negotiating on our behalf.  She gave us excellent advice along the way and since we had not yet relocated, was very helpful in getting things done for the exchange and completion.

We are very happy in our new home!


We bought an investment property in Kensington. We knew London reasonably well, but didn’t have any experience of buying property there. We were referred to Guy Meacock at Prime Purchase by American Express, and spent several weeks liaising with Guy before flying over.

We were in London for 5 days, and during that time we visited nearly 30 properties, several of them more than once.  Guy provided us with ample documentation covering each property, so we were well informed before each inspection.  Importantly, he was also very objective about each property. A number of the properties we inspected (including the one we ultimately bought) were not even advertised for sale.

Having selected a property to purchase, Guy handled the negotiations on our behalf, and the transaction was handled with total professionalism and the minimum amount of stress on our part.

Guy has become a good friend and our ‘eyes and ears’ on the London property market.

Would we recommend his services as a buying agent?  Absolutely.

Prime Purchase recently helped me to find a flat. I was downsizing from a house in Marylebone. I could not have been happier with the teams professionalism in all aspects of this process, not only in finding a flat within my remit but also with other details of the move. My agent successfully found me a flat which ticked virtually every box that I requested and in which I am sure I will be very happy. She was also enormously supportive and calm throughout the whole process and made it all as stress free as possible in what turned out to be quite testing circumstances as, amongst other things, it went to sealed bids. I would recommend Prime Purchase without hesitation.

We were delighted with the service we received from Prime Purchase.   Buying a house is a big decision, and having a team so knowledgeable working for you is invaluable.  From understanding availability, including off-market properties, through to taking a dispassionate approach to negotiations, the support is second to none.  We were so pleased that we've asked them to help on some further housing needs we have.

After trying in vain to find a house ourselves for some time, PrimePurchase was fantastic from the off and really gave us confidence that we would find the house we were looking for. That they duly did and helped through the whole process, making everything very easy. I'm pretty sure the support they provided in the bidding process alone more than covered the cost of their fees. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Our property search did not go according to plan and having lost out on two houses there was a lot of sole searching required on our part. Throughout the whole experience, Robin Gould’s gentle and able approach was always visible. His calm manner suited us perfectly and he guided us into viewing houses and areas that we would not have initially considered.

Our search was an extended one and we learnt much more about what would really suit us as it developed. Our Prime Purchase agent, Robin Gould, helped, supported and guided us throughout this journey. We looked at many houses all of which had been reconnoitred by Robin before. He was always in good humour and all our e-mails were answered fully and promptly!  He always maintained a very good understanding and focus on what we wanted. The house we eventually purchased was never on the market and we would never have found it without Robin. The final report was also most useful. We would, without reservation, recommend what Prime Purchase and Robin did for us. We enjoyed his company throughout. His knowledge of the area and particular properties was exemplary and his advice sound and perceptive. Without it, we would have made a mistaken purchase. It was all very very professional.

When I called James Watts at Prime Purchase I was in despair that I would ever secure a property. A lot of wise advice, expert local knowledge and energetic support later, I am now the proud owner of a great little place. Thank you!

After two years of looking in central London,and having identified a very specific area, Prime Purchase found a property for me. Not just a property but an ideal flat. And their help meant negotiations were conducted in a friendly and business like manner, so it was a very short period to exchange and then completion. I am now working with them to find a country property.

Living in Ireland I realised that I would need help in finding a property in London. Having been put in touch with Prime Purchase I was assigned James Watts. James was quick to understand my budget and what I was looking for, helping to narrow the search area and my criteria so that when I flew over from Ireland for the day I was able to see seven properties, one of which I bought. James’s help did not end there as the property needed extensive work. He put me in contact with two very experienced architects, one of which I employed with great results. Throughout the process James was completely charming and efficient. I didn’t waste any time on endless searching, phone calls or unnecessary trips from Ireland. He just made everything so easy and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

The wait paid off and when the perfect off-market house came up you provided invaluable support and expert advice to enable us take a view, move quickly and secure the house in an increasingly competitive market . We are confident that without your experience and negotiating skills we would still be looking. Your whole team also took so much of the stress out of the process once our offer had been accepted from liaising with the solicitors to organising insurance.  As you know we paid your fee the day we received your invoice -  you more than earned it and we were more than happy to pay it! Thank you once again and we would be happy to recommend Prime Purchase to anyone.

Apart from Prime Purchase's very evident familiarity with what's on the market at any given time, they displayed a knowledge and understanding of market dynamics in particularly difficult circumstances (post the significant increase in stamp duty and pre the general election).  The advice given in these circumstances was always thoughtful and never designed to rush a purchase.  And they were endlessly courteous and patient, despite more than one change of mind on our part.  Overall, highly professional and to be recommended.

We had always doubted the value of getting a buying agent as we live in our search area and had assumed that the service was aimed more at people looking for homes from a distance. How wrong we were! The team had fantastic local knowledge and had access to houses long before they came to the open market. They had also had done all the research on each one, so could tell us which ones would definitely not suit us. It saved us time and energy, and meant we only looked at properties which met our criteria. Once our dream house came up (and it did!), the team's advice and assistance with the negotiation put us in the driving seat, and we were successful. We would absolutely recommend Prime Purchase to anyone  for their highly professional and personable service.

Charlie was always honest with me throughout the whole process of finding a house, and consequently I really trusted that he knew what I was looking for. He made me feel very relaxed and at ease, and what could have been an arduous experience turned out to be a very enjoyable one; it was great to feel that you were not just with an unknown agent but a very knowledgeable friend.

The team have really been great throughout - really patient and professional in what was quite a long but very successful search at the end. I felt well taken care of and represented throughout and will highly recommend Prime Purchase from now on.

We thought Charlie's experience and contacts in the market for farms was hugely beneficial for both the sale and the purchase side of our recent transaction. He clearly had insights that we would not have been able to develop ourselves. In particular, he gave us a very objective view of all the properties we visited and was concerned to see us arrive at the right decision rather than bounce us into a fee paying transaction.

The whole team were attentive, professional and hit the ground running when it came to seal the deal for us, we would so recommend Prime Purchase.

Having recently survived a very complex purchase of a Grade I country house, I know for a fact that my wife and I would have walked away without the help, support and “animal cunning” of  Prime Purchase. The knowledge and support were crucial and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Without the services of Prime Purchase we would not be the proud owners of our beautiful country manor and a fabulous town house in an enviable part of London.  Through our experience of working with Marcus and the team, it is clear that PP's edge is achieved through its fathomless local knowledge and connections, together with a committed, highly efficient and personable service.  Both projects were really enjoyable experiences and we knew right from the start that if our dream property was out there, it would be PP that secured it for us.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use Prime Purchase again. They got me access to houses I would never have seen advertised for sale and they covered their fees and more by achieving a lower price than I would have managed on my own. Buying a large country house raises a different range of issues from staffing, running costs, maintenance through to obtaining listed building consent for alterations. Having spent decades dealing with country house sales, Robin and Charlie were able to answer most of these questions easily.

I have recently bought a Grade 1 listed house. It probably wouldn’t have happened without Prime Purchase. Having someone on my side with 20 years of experience of buying and selling these houses helped me focus on the real issues and what I really wanted. I looked at a number of houses, most of which were never publicly available and I was able to save myself many wasted trips by getting the true story behind several incredible looking houses which were advertised for sale. I was able to compare the house I eventually did buy against the many that I had seen and discussed. Negotiating through a buying agent gave me a degree of separation from the seller and probably led to a more frank and productive discussion between buying agent and selling agent. I am fairly confident that their fees were covered by the improvement in price they were able to achieve but the value of the service goes much further than that.


You told us we couldn’t buy one of the houses we really liked, which took a bit of accepting.

I challenged you to find better, which you did and we bought off-market. We are perfectly placed for schools and London and realise you were right all along.

We have recently completed the purchase of our new home and could definitely not have achieved it without the hard work and commitment of Charlie Wells.

We have never used a property search agent before so we did some diligence on Prime Purchase and other firms prior to instructing them, everyone we spoke to from agents and previous purchasers was very complimentary, although this is an understatement.

From the minute we instructed PP, we knew we had got the right guys. They spent time visiting us in London to understand all our needs to the very last wish, they clarified everything. Their market knowledge is second to none, I have no idea how they know and find out so much information about each property and everything there is to know about the surrounding areas and amenities but they do - they are seriously well connected.

I can't recommend their professionalism and dedication highly enough . We wouldn't hesitate to use Charlie and PP again.


Guy's granular knowledge of prime London residential real estate is quite breathtaking, equalled only by the punishing schedule to which he submits himself and his fantastic ethos of client service. He has provided highly professional, objective advice along the way, telling us when to play the long game, and when to move aggressively. The relationship which Guy has developed with us instilled such confidence in me that I was prepared to take the potentially rash step of submitting a non-refundable deposit last week in order to lock out an aggressive competing bidder. Guy played a superb tactical game such that Prime Purchase has now enabled us to close out on our second off-market transaction. He also effected introductions to other professionals who allowed us to complete at breakneck speed. 

As a private equity investor I've become sceptical of buy-side advisors who in my experience usually are more interested in persuading their clients to overpay in order to achieve the success fee. There has never been a hint of this with Nick or Guy, both of whom at all times have acted as if it were their own money. Total professionalism throughout.

Many thanks from a truly delighted client. I look forward to receiving your fee note and shall take pleasure in settling this immediately.

Many many thanks to Prime Purchase for all of your help and expertise. You were a great strength to me in this process. A job well done.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for finding and helping us to acquire the flat, and for guiding us so calmly through the process, particularly given how challenging the vendor was. We're very grateful, and just so delighted to be getting the flat! It was lovely to spend our first weekend planning things for the flat, in the knowledge that we're definitely going to get it.



I came to Prime Purchase after searching for a house for 2 years, and with some disillusion about how search agents worked, and who for.  I needn't have worried - it was the best move.  Not only did they find the Oxford townhouse I was looking for within 6 months but the sale was negotiated quickly, peacefully and always totally with my best interests at heart.  The team found the house for me before it came on the market so I would never have even known about it otherwise.  PP also managed to secure the house for me for less than its market value.  They were always completely professional and honest and nearly 5 months after completion are still on hand for me should I need their advice.  I couldn't recommend PP more highly.

Throughout we have relied on your objective advice, particularly on value considerations. The time spent with the vendors' agent to establish at what level an offer would be successful really paid off. Your hard work in guiding the transaction through to completion made sure that it went incredibly smoothly. Prime Purchase we felt, went beyond the call of duty; from meeting us at the airport (even on a Sunday!) to talking to the neighbours.


I would like to thank Robin Gould of Prime Purchase for the part he played in the sale of a much loved family home.  Acting for the buyers, he, along with my agent handled the whole excercise  with sensitivity and good humour, helping to generate a real feeling of goodwill which was much appreciated at a difficult and stressful time.  This resulted in a satisfactory outcome for all concerned.


Your added value at all stages of the transaction through your unending patience with our fastidious requirements, your knowledge of properties coming onto the market weeks before they were publicly available, your assistance during the fraught negotiations. We could not have been more impressed by your performance.

Reassurance, guidance and a diplomatic steer in the right direction, and at the end, the safe arrival of a new home carefully orchestrated by a pro. Thank you


When we first met I showed you a photograph of our dream house. You didn't just find us the type of house we wanted to buy you found us the actual house in the photograph. Needless to say we are delighted.

Just wanted to  take the opportunity to say how much my wife and I appreciated all the work Prime Purchase did and how they were a steady hand as we went through the sometimes emotional task of finding a home. We found their advice very helpful in focusing our search.

We are starting some repairs and I know that eventually we will have the home we always wanted.
Thank you for putting us on the path. Please come and visit anytime.


My personal banker introduced me to Prime Purchase about four years ago, telling me that they were the ones who could help me find a small place in Prime Central London.  As this form of business was new to me, and is non-existent in Russia, I was very sceptical but decided to give it a try. 

Guy Meacock was appointed as my personal manager and soon after he found me an un-modernised two bedroom flat in Mayfair.  Unaware of market prices in London I was very hesitant and nervous about paying too much for the property.  However, Guy was very persuasive and provided me with comparable evidence in the area that proved that I had a really good deal.  I bought the flat and in a year and half felt that I needed something bigger.  The property sold for almost double the price.  Having won my trust, Guy then found me a very unique property at a prime Knightsbridge address.

I think that trust is the most important factor when you allow someone to find you a property abroad – it has to be right for you and at the same time not over priced.  Guy has proved to be a very direct, professional, and honourable gentleman who is fully committed to finding the property best suited to a client whilst guiding them through the buying process smoothly.

Above all, our business relationship has resulted in a real friendship and I would definitely recommend working with Prime Purchase and Guy Meacock in particular.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for finding and helping us to acquire the flat, and for guiding us so calmly through the process, particularly given how challenging the vendor was.

We're very grateful, and just so delighted to be getting the flat! It was lovely to spend our first weekend planning things for the flat, in the knowledge that we're definitely going to get it.
