About the London Property Scout - Who We Are

The London Property Scout is one of London’s longest standing property search and buying agencies. In a relatively new industry where companies arrive today and are gone tomorrow, we have stood the test of time and continue to offer a comprehensive and custom-made service that saves our clients time, money and stress in one of the world’s fastest moving property markets.

In a city where often the best properties sell before they hit the market and multiple sealed bids are commonplace – the need for a good buying agent is essential.

The London Property Scout was founded in 2009 by Matt Sherlock. Having worked in the London property market since early 2006 for a leading London estate agent and subsequently a central London property developer, Matt has seen the market from all angles.

With his prior experience, Matt felt that London property buyers were under-represented in the market and there was a need to bring a balance to the buyer/seller equation.

Matt has commented on the London property market for Channel 4 as well as several lifestyle and business publications including Client Magazine.
