Andrew Davies – Buyer, London
“The forces of change in the business of selling property are growing in pressure. The growth of online agencies, the pressure on commissions, the feeling that the traditional estate agency model may not serve well for the millennial generation.
“One agency bucking the trend in the race to the bottom of the price/service equation is Aucoot, founded by John McDavid.
“Aucoot has identified a significant niche in the home buyers’ market: the requirement for a carefully curated range of properties that have unique attributes of design, or space, or location, or construction.
“Aucoot is not tied to a geographic or architectural zone. They have created a brand which, in its look and feel, appeals directly to that unique purchaser who is not constrained in choice and approaches each property on its merits. It’s extraordinarily liberating, particularly in the London market, to have this portfolio of precisely selected properties available. Where developers’ photography misleads and agencies endeavour to create marginal differences for cookie-cutter new builds, Aucoot offers a landscape of exciting, inspiring and honest possibilities.”
