If you've lived in and outgrown your London home over several years, it's easy to forget what made you fall in love with it in the first place. But any Estate Agent worthy of their fee should be marketing it so effectively that even you will look at it in a whole new light.
Dexters are reminded of how important it is to look at your neighbourhood from a fresh perspective after reading this blog by London runners, Rick Pearson and Isaac Williams. They trekked to the highest point in each London borough whilst in conversation with a noteworthy local to provide material for their London's Peaks podcast.
Invariably, they found new aspects to consider in Lewisham's flat-pack scandi-style houses, Islington's hidden history and the recurring theme of community found across the city.
When Dexters arrive to to value your London home, we'll also bring a fresh perspective that makes us expert in identifying its USP. Together with our exceptional local knowledge - from the outstanding school at the bottom of your road to the local parkrun - this makes all the difference to our marketing campaign.
What do a nondescript road next to Kensal Green tube station, a prominent mound on Putney Heath, and Eaglesfield Recreation Ground on Shooters Hill have in common? They are all the highest points in their respective London boroughs. Over the past 12 weeks, we have been walking to all of them as part of our podcast, London’s Peaks. The idea was inspired, in part, by Jonny Muir’s ‘12 Summits of London’ challenge, in which he ran to the peaks of the 12 inner-London boroughs all in one go – covering some 41 miles in a tad over six hours. Jonny is an ex-running club mate of ours and an extremely fit man. His achievement sounded hugely impressive; it also sounded like hard and lonely work. So we decided on a more social and sedate alternative: walking to the 12 peaks.
