Last week Helmores took over The National Property Centre in Park Lane, London, to showcase Devon homes, estates and farmsteads to city dwellers looking to escape the rat race.
The special property exhibition positioned some of the counties best homes at the finger tips of hot buyers in the heart of London.
In 2015 Devon has been voted the ‘Best Place to Live’ in numerous national surveys including The Sunday Times Best Places to Live and Country Life Magazine who said that those living in the county enjoy a better quality of life than anywhere else in the country. Devon also came top in categories as the best for green credentials, local food, pubs, heritage and landscape as well as health, schools, environment, and heritage. Then this month Crediton was listed as the 14th best place in the country to bring up a family!
So last week we filled our London Showroom situated in the high-end business district of Mayfair with properties all suitable for someone from the city looking to change their lifestyle and relocate to arguably one of the best locations in the country.
We are delighted to say that we were rushed off our feet with a constant stream of hopeful buyers and positive inquiries – and whilst it is too early to say whether those enquiries have left to direct sales quite yet – we are very hopeful to have some good news for many buyers soon.
The event really underlined the importance of having a strong presence in London and we are already making plans for another one in the Spring.
