Matt Goslett: The House Hunter

Matt Goslett: The House Hunter

Whether you are upsizing, downsizing or putting a first foot on the property ladder, Matt Goslett is the property detective

Are you looking for a home with particular specifications? Or do you want more outdoor space or a guest room? Whatever the brief, property consultant Matt Goslett can make your dreams come true – and he will find you value for money!

Matt specialises in the West London area and covers the full spectrum of residential searches. ‘Most importantly, I am completely independent. I only represent the purchaser, whereas an estate agent always acts for the vendor,’ he explains. ‘And whereas an agent can only show you what’s on their books, I cover the entire market.’

Two of Matt’s successful projects perfectly illustrate his bespoke service. ‘Recently, a client came to me because she had been looking for a property with two bedrooms for the previous six months. I found a lovely flat within her budget on the top floor of a smart terrace in W14. At the other end of the scale, I was asked to locate a large studio space for a professional artist. I tracked down a 1500 square foot former recording studio in Acton. He loved it – and bought it!’

Matt takes a detailed brief from each client. ‘No two are the same and I must have a clear idea of what is required. That’s why I drill down beyond the fundamentals of budget, location and number of rooms; for example, does the client need to be near a school or public transport? Or an open space or shops? Do they want a larger garden, a garage or a parking space? On occasion, I also find off-market properties. Of course, if the budget is unrealistic, I say so.’

Armed with this information, Matt scours the market for properties that match the search criteria. ‘I see as many places as it takes for as long as it takes. Then I present the most promising prospects and arrange viewings. I also conduct price negotiations and can put clients in touch with a solicitor, mortgage broker and, if needed, reputable contractors.

‘My approach is very personal,’ he says. ‘I take great pride and pleasure in finding my clients their new homes.’
