Property Procurement You Can Trust

We know that buying a property can be a stressful process. Whether it’s a first home, family home, or luxury investment property, finding one that meets your search criteria takes time and attention. If you are considering expanding your property portfolio with an overseas investment, this can be even more laborious. Enlisting a property search agent will make the home purchasing process more efficient.

Our expertise in property procurement means we are able to match our discerning clients with the home of their dreams, be it their primary residence, second home or investment property for rental. With our specialist knowledge of UK and foreign property markets and an extensive network of industry contacts, we know where to focus our search and have access to priority information and off-market properties. Whether you wish to purchase a property overseas or are looking to buy in the UK, we provide objective, trustworthy and impartial advice rooted in knowledge and experience.

Experienced Buying Agents for High-End Aspirational Properties

We carry out thorough research to understand both the client and the market offering with each new commission that we are presented with. Through our property advisory consultations, we work closely with our clients as their search and buying agents – both in the UK and abroad – to help them visualise the potential of each property. During the purchasing process, our team takes into consideration the client’s requirements, objectives and budget to make sure that what is ultimately procured is perfectly suited to their lifestyle, needs and future goals.

If we are approached to undertake any work on the newly purchased property, increasing the value is one of our primary aims. With our in-depth understanding of the luxury property market, our buying agents can identify sound investments and see the potential in renovation projects of all scales.

Designed by Woulfe consulted with us over a twelve-month period to identify our family home, analysing the potential reconfigurations, renovation budgets and stumbling blocks associated with each property. Brian’s advice meant we knew exactly how to pitch the offer when purchasing our home.

Spotting Development & Investment Potential

As well as acting as a search agent we offer property consultation on properties from extensive renovation projects to new builds. This means if a client is considering a property but is in need of a trusted, expert second opinion, we are able to help. With our industry knowledge and specialist eye, we are capable of reviewing investments in order to ensure that the property you are buying is good value and built to a high standard. However specific or niche your requirements are, the Designed by Woulfe property procurement service will source, negotiate and secure the right property to meet your needs.

Having a purchasing agent means we will liaise with solicitors, valuers, surveyors, architects and contractors in order to maintain a singular, seamless line of communication for an overall home buying experience that’s as stress-free as possible for you.

Reviewing Your Homebuying Goals

Each client approaches us with unique requirements, so our home search service involves clearly outlining your specific objectives in order to carry out a tailored property search. We are led by the defined criteria throughout the home purchasing process, while providing you with guidance, advice and inspiration.

As expert property finders, our service starts with a careful audit of what your property purchasing goals are. Aside from common prerequisites such as location, size and budget, we will also consider practical factors such as proximity to work or schools, aspects of your family life and lifestyle, timescales and preferences in architecture, specific features and internal configurations.

If it’s an investment acquisition we are handling, we will gain a crystal-clear understanding of your investment goals and exit strategy. Once we have established a well-rounded understanding of your goals, expectations and non-negotiables, the search process can begin.

As a busy professional, finding the right home to buy in London can be a daunting task. Working with an integrated buying and design professional to uncover the gems in the London property market was key to my search. Seeing the true potential of a property and transforming it to meet your personal and investment needs is a difficult task in a heritage-centric city such as London. Brian was an invaluable partner in my search, bringing efficiency and vision in analysing the options based on his deep experience and natural design sensibility.

Sourcing Luxury Off-Market Properties

The next step in our property finder service is to commence the search process. This is where our market knowledge, insight, experience and contacts come into play. Liaising with estate agents, developers and private owners, we explore openly and discreetly listed properties. With experience sourcing off-market properties in London and beyond, our search may well include those which are yet to go to market too. Throughout the entire process, we keep you up to date but spare you the groundwork.

Once we have a shortlist of properties which match your criteria, we will present them to you before organising viewings which work around your schedule. We’ll analyse the pros, cons and potential of each property and give you our unbiased opinion

Negotiating & Securing the Property of Your Dreams

The negotiation stage of the purchasing process can be the most stressful part, which is why enlisting the support of a property search consultant can save you both time and money. First, we will share the background information which we have gathered about your chosen property, the current owners, and recently sold comparable properties with you. The next step is to develop and decide on a property negotiation strategy together.

Then, as skilled property negotiators, we will negotiate the best possible terms with your best interests in mind. Having reviewed the property comps in the area you have selected to buy, we will ensure that you are paying a fair price that’s an accurate reflection of the current market. Once the price and terms are all agreed, we oversee the transaction and conveyancing until all that’s left to do is hand over the keys.

International Property Finders

Many of our clients are business people looking to relocate abroad. A sudden career opportunity, promotion or executive role could find you searching for accommodation for yourself and your family, often in a relatively short timescale. Aside from the cultural differences, the numerous legal hurdles and property jargon differs from country to country. Designed by Woulfe are experienced luxury property finders who understand the international market. Whether you're looking to set up home in Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Thailand, Australia or the middle of nowhere, we have a diverse multinational team who can translate and negotiate on your behalf.  

Clients often wish to hire us for a one-stop service; we find your ideal property, deal with the procurement process through to completion, whilst designing the interiors and architecture to your tastes. This leaves you free to explore your new city, with the peace of mind that in a matter of weeks or months, you can fully relax and settle in your new home. Our international home finder service is also available without interior design services for those who want to do things their own way or enjoy the property as it is already presented.
