We are property finders acting on behalf of private clients who are looking to buy or rent prime property in the country and London. Not only do we source the best properties on and off the market, we also negotiate the best price.
Alice began her property career in Central London in 2001 as a property consultant before managing her own office within one of London's leading estate agents. Alice brings 18 years of experience across a wide spectrum of property transactions and has expert knowledge in the field.
Having lived in Hampshire for many years her local knowledge and extensive contacts, both professional and personal, are extremely wide and varied. Alice is able to provide a highly professional and focused search service, providing her clients with the best opportunity to purchase in this complex and highly competative market.
Catherine has specialised in the prime central London market since 2004 where she began her career within the fast-paced enviroment of a competative London selling agency.
After starting a family Catherine moved to Hampshire in 2015 where she lives with her husband and two boys, she is well known to selling agents and local residents, which enables her to create off-market opportunities for many of her clients.
Having worked on both sides of selling and buying she is best-placed to advise clients on all aspects of the residential market.
Each property search begins with an initial consultation, either meeting at your home or office to discuss your property requirements. We then create a resourceful, bespoke plan of action tailored to your brief. We will visit each property and draw up a shortlist and arrange viewings for you, ensuring that your criteria have been met and time isn't wasted. If you are interested in making an offer then we move to the negotiation. Every negotiation is different. Our aim is to always secure the property on the best available terms and at the right price for you. Once the sale is agreed, we work with your solicitor (or other advisors) and will be in frequent contact with both you, your solicitor and vendor's estate agent to ensure a smooth transactional process.
Our passion is property and we are dedicated to finding your dream home. We work independently, and we restrict the number of clients we work with at any one time to ensure each one receives our fullest attention. We never take on multiple clients with the same brief.
Our close working relationship with a network of Agents provides us with unrivalled knowledge of properties coming to the market, including access to potential private sales. Research is key: We gather background knowledge on the property and the owners, as well as comparable properties that have sold recently so that you can make a highly informed choice.
We can brief you on all aspects of the community, including detailed information on local schools, doctors, clubs and other essentials. We can recommend architects, interior designers, builders and landscape gardeners and arrange access to the property for them if required. On completion we will collect the keys and meet you at your new home.
As buying agent's we charge a one-off retaining fee payable upon instruction. Having found a property we then charge a fee calculated as a percentage of the final purchase price, on exchange of contracts.
"We had been looking (unsuccessfully) for a very specific type of house, in a very specific and small area of Hampshire for a long time. Suddenly the clock was ticking and we HAD to find somewhere. We decided to use a Buying Agent and chose Hutton Bubear. We doubted whether they could find our dream home, in the dream location in under 8 weeks but we thought we would give them a go. They absolutely succeeded! They clearly understood our brief and found us a property off market that ticked ALL the boxes on our list meaning we did not have to compromise on anything, and we were able to complete in the time frame we needed to. They also handled so many aspects of the purchase which was a huge help when trying to move house and look after two young children at the same time in a matter of weeks. We can’t thank them enough, and have already recommended these two professional and helpful ladies to a friend in a similar predicament to us".
