West End wonders

All about life in the capital’s West End

International demand is as high as ever in this great location offering quintessential London living.

Home to some of London’s most iconic landmarks, cutting-edge companies and historic residential properties. Local experts Lazarus and Lok from Dexters Fitzrovia explain why buyers and tenants from around the world continue to flock to the area.

The typical type of residents are “young professionals, families and corporate tenants who are attracted to the lively social atmosphere of the area and central location. Many of these tenants come from our Corporate Lettings and International Relocation team who deal with hundreds of enquiries every week from international blue-chip companies and overseas investors, many of whom deal exclusively with Dexters for their property needs,” Lazarus explains.

“People are drawn to the West End because of its heritage,” says Lok. “There is an impressive selection of period properties with architecture that cannot be beaten. Geographically you are no more than a 10 minute walk from a variety of theatres, galleries and restaurants.”

Lazarus advises, “buyers and tenants to be ready to act quickly when you find a property you like as demand to live in London is at an all-time high. Ensure your details are registered with us and keep in regular contact because not everything we sell and let is available online.”


Lazarus and Lok both discuss what their clients enjoy most about working with Dexters. “Our property management and tenant care service is highly rated and landlords appreciate the fact that their personal Property Manager is never more than 15 minutes away from any property in their portfolio,” says Lazarus. Lok adds “The reassurance of working with qualified local experts who adhere to the highest standards of ethical behaviour. As London’s leading Estate Agent we spend 10 times the industry average on training and developing our people, running our own Academy in Pimlico. We are also regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.”

Lok states, “you know you’re in the West End when you’re walking through Theatreland on the way back to the office and bump into one of our local landlords who seeks advice on the interior design of their rental investment.”

In Dexters Fitzrovia and Covent Garden they recently let the former private dining room above the Adelphi Theatre for £3,500 per week, a truly unique property with lots of history. They were also able to generate dozens of viewings before properties even launched online. “With over 200,000 people registered with us looking for a London home, we have seen great results by making properties quietly available,” says Lok.
