Colombo Hirst is an award winning, independent, property buying agency in London, run by Delphine Colombo and Lucie Hirst. With over twenty five years of prime London residential property experience between them at leading agencies including Savills, Knight Frank and Hamptons, they offer a combination of detailed local property insight, enhanced access and a tailored approach to property buying. Property purchasing in London has become more competitive and Colombo Hirst offer their clients the advantage they need to be able to successfully acquire their dream properties.

Our fee covers the work we carry out and we expect this to be recouped within the quality of property purchase and price we are able to negotiate for the buyer.


We make sure that we are aware of what is on the open market at all times but these days the best in class properties and the ones that our clients tend to want to buy rarely get as far as reaching the open market.

When embarking on a client's property search we explore lots of different avenues. We speak to all the agents directly, many of which these days don't work for the big corporate agencies anymore, having branched out and now operate typically as individual brokers. We explore the archives to see if any unsold properties might be suitable and we investigate the rental market for potential opportunities to buy. We speak directly to individuals and contacts we have made over the last 20 years. These could be developers, ex-colleagues, old clients or even close friends to ensure that no stone is left unturned.

Clients come to us not only to find them their perfect property, which is rarely on the market anyway, but to also conduct the appropriate due diligence on the property. We then go on to
negotiate the best possible price for the property on their behalf and ensure that the transaction, once agreed, results in a timely and successful exchange and completion.
