Born in Canonbury in 1971, I had the pleasure of going to Canonbury school. 26 years later my children followed in my footsteps. When my first child went there I was shocked at how small the hall was and how little the climbing frames were. My primary love (after my wife and four children) is skiing and I spent 6 years as a ski instructor in the French Alps and travelling the world. However, a broken back cut that career short. I started in estate agency in 1995, joining Hotblack Desiato in 1998 with partnership following in 2003. I ski as often as having 4 children allows me and I have a passion for architecture/ design and sailing.
Originally from the West Country, my love for the finer things in life (especially food) started at a young age. This lead me into the world of cheffing, something I pursued in Bristol and Brighton for the next 7 years. After too many years of working in windowless kitchens and unsociable hours I decided to change paths and look for a job where I saw the sun and got to meet people. Hotblack Desiato it was, starting out as lettings negotiator I soon progressed to a senior lettings negotiator in the Highbury office and four years later moved onto managing the Camden lettings department. I now find myself back in Highbury managing the excellent team here; we seem to constantly get good reviews so I guess we are doing something right!
Hello, I’m Alasdair. I was born in Paddington, then lived on the other side of the world for a bit, then came back here. Went to University, then moved to Oxford to run pubs and play records in nightclubs. Once this became undignified, I started selling houses. Ended up working in the franchise side of an agency, with branches from Leeds to Bristol to London and back again. I’m not much of a fan of driving though, so came back to the roost here in N5 where I manage the Highbury branch – delighted that I did as well. I can do all my appointments on a bike – that’s me, on the black and orange Brompton.
Raised in North West London, I recently moved to Hertfordshire which means I get the best of both worlds; city life when I’m working and the fresh country air on weekends and to cap it off my commute in to work is now actually quicker than before! I have been working in the property industry since 2008 so I have many years of experience behind me prior to which I was travelling the world for a year after graduating from university. I’ve been at the Highbury Office now for many years and it is a very pleasant part of town to work in with a real community vibe, lots of greenery and open spaces. The job itself is very rewarding with everyday being different bringing fresh challenges and keeping me on my toes.
The beauty of our Highbury Estate Agents branch is that it is unique in being the only agent on Highbury Barn – complemented by a wide array of shops, boutiques and delis. Just across the road from Highbury Fields, we cater for an affluent-set and are very much ‘embedded’ in the community. Indeed, it is often the case that former and existing clients pop in for coffee, even to change nappies.
