Alex first studied Business Administration in Newcastle as an undergraduate then progressed as a graduate at Kingston University where he read for his Master of Arts in European Real Estate (Immobilia).
Alex’s career started in residential agency with Cluttons in Bayswater and St John’s Wood where he built strong bonds in the real estate business over six years advising and assuring landed estates across London on complex agency matters. Alex moved, then, into commercial asset management, and after qualifying as a chartered surveyor in 2006 he moved to Knight Frank. Here, he carried out Red Book evaluations for secured loan purposes to schools for a variety of banking clients. Not being the kind of man to rest on his laurels, Alex made a great success of sales acting on behalf of schools, training centres, religious institutions, and charities.
Alex now receives special recognition for his real estate work in the education sector.

In 2005, Dan moved to Keningtons where he became Head of their Investment Division.

Grace studied Photography at Perth College of Art & Music (University of the Highlands and Islands). In 2000 she started out as a freelance photographer, building on her experiences and reputation as a portrait and interiors photographer; she went on to develop and exhibit her personal collection of documentary pieces.
Grace moved to France in 2006 and worked alongside the Director of Monochrome Records, taking care of its management and organisation. Her photography and design work only grew, here, as she developed, too, her interest in real estate and she took on house restoration projects. Project management and interior design became her forte and her interest in marketing and sales grew. Her latest project was a village house conversion in the Ariege, South of France, after which Grace moved to London to continue and develop her career.
