Hamptons International celebrates official opening in the Wharf
Hamptons International officially celebrated the launch of its new Canary Wharf premises in South Colonnade last week.
The branch's sales manager Julian Amos (below), who has experience working in the property market in Brighton, the home counties and west London, told us what Wharfers can expect from him and his team:
■ What do you believe are the key things you deliver within your role?
I have 14 years' experience in agencies and I think that I'm a very approachable and communicative person.
I also feel I tend to be able to understand the different requirements clients need and I feel I am always willing to listen, which I think in sales is often something that is under-valued.
■ How do you think the new office location will help the brand?
I think the location is second to none as we are just off Cabot Square.
The new look is contemporary and open, which reflects our dedication towards communication and openness as a company.
It's already proving to be a huge attraction and we are finding that we're getting more walk-ins.
■ What is the future you envisage for the company?
Our absolute goal is to be the agent of choice by recommendation.
We want to ensure we focus on client needs as much as possible and go above and beyond on expectations at every opportunity.
Senior lettings manager Chris Boswell (above) has worked across Pimlico and Westminster. He told us what prospective tenants and landlords could expect:
■ What does Hamptons provide that others may not?
I believe the company is only as strong as the people working for it, so we ensure we employ those most suited to the job.
As Canary Wharf has changed so dramatically over the years, the quality of agents has needed to change and I think with the help of our staff we have been able to offer what clients need now that suits them the best.
■ What are your strengths?
Customer service, commitment, knowledge and experience.
My main focus is always establishing a good relationship with the client - it's not about making fast cash on one deal - it's about keeping a good client so that they want to come back to you.
