LonGrad – stands for London Property Experts
We are an independent boutique consultancy that always puts our clients’ needs first. LonGrad provides brokerage and consulting services with regards to commercial and residential properties, which include property and investment management, valuation and property development. Our team of experienced and qualified property experts and chartered surveyors is here to help you, advise you and guide you. Our clients come to us for expertise, experience and unparalleled knowledge of the local market.
In our industry it is common to offer three kinds of service: Good – Cheap – Fast and clients are normally given an option to pick any two.
1) If it’s fast and good, it won’t be cheap.
2) If it’s good and cheap, it won’t be fast.
3) If it’s fast and cheap, it won’t be good.
We don’t believe in this strategy. The only option we offer our clients is Option Nr. 1: fast, great & reassuringly expensive.
We provide personal service no one else can match.
You may have noticed that our web-site is purely in Russian. In fact, it’s the largest (and most popular) source of useful information and news about London property market in Russian, with hundreds of articles, research papers, podcasts, etc.
1) LonGrad’s founder, Roman Grigoriev MRICS, is the first Russian-speaking UK-qualified chartered surveyor and it just makes sense to utilise one’s strengths.
2) Mass Media does not always exaggerate, Russian-speaking investors indeed tend to buy the best and most expensive properties in London. By specialising in this small niche we get to work with the most exclusive properties in London, the most well-known developers, architects, designers, investors and of course – the most experienced local agents, who know us well and who give us access to properties very few other agents get access to.
3) Russian clients can be very demanding, to say the least. However, by cutting our professional teeth and honing our skills by working with the most demanding clients, you can rest assured that we can manage any client with any requirement.
If you are a Russian-speaker and would like a crash-course into London property market, then you will find our site very useful, especially www.longrad.com/articles and of course, should you have any questions – please do get in touch.
If you don’t speak Russian, but have a property requirement and would like an initial consultation, feel free to give us a call on 0208 133 1778 and we’d be delighted to help. However, we are a very busy bunch and are rarely in the office (and when in the office – then constantly on the phone), so it may be more efficient to drop us a line on info(a)longrad.com or message us on Facebook.com/LonGrad and we’ll reply as soon as possible.
Believe it or not, but we love journalists and journalists love us back. In the past we have given interviews and appeared on BBC2, BBC Newsnight, ITV, The Guardian, MailOnline, WSJ, USA Today, MarketPlace, Der Spiegel and of course all the major media channels and publications in Russia: Vedomosti, RTR, Moskva FM, NTT and countless others.
If you are a journalist and would like to hear our socially liberal & fiscally conservative views on London, it’s economy and particularly it’s housing crisis, please feel free to reach out on info(a)longrad.com and we’d be delighted to help.
As opposed to all the populists and arm-chair practitioners of dismal science out there, we do actually know what we are talking about and we are more than happy to share our knowledge with you.
