Douglas & GordonDouglas & Gordon has opened a new sales and lettings office in Southfields, the company’s eighteenth office, most of which are in south-west London. George Franks, Douglas & Gordon’s sales director, comments, “Over the past three years, Southfields and Earlsfield has come into focus for many prospective buyers and renters as international demand has priced them out of the traditionally popular areas of Fulham, Putney and Wimbledon. The area’s village-like feel, with its range of shops, pubs and restaurants and convenient transport links, has made it popular with professionals and families. “The properties on offer in Southfields with outdoor living space, the schools, nearby Wimbledon Park, with its sports facilities and golf club, are key attractions.”

He adds, “South-west London continues to be a key growth area for our business and opening an office in Southfields highlights our confidence in the future success of this part of London. This office is filling the gap between our six Battersea offices and two Putney offices.” Maddie Miller, who has six years experience in the south-west London property market, has moved from Douglas and Gordon’s Battersea Park Office to lead the sales department. Alex 
Dowding, a lettings negotiator with six years experience in south-west London has moved from the Battersea Northcote Road branch, will head the lettings team. Both have lived in the area for several years bringing local knowledge and expertise.

The new office is the second Douglas & Gordon to have a fully interactive ‘Microsoft Surface Table’ for clients. This table, which is like a large iPad, is a new way for applicants to search for suitable properties. The technology is linked to the Douglas & Gordon website which can also be viewed interactively. There are a number of useful features, such as Google Earth which offers a bird’s eye view of the property so a potential purchaser or tenant can be fully informed about the area. Users can also make bookings with restaurants and other local amenities. Very trendy!
