Property expert Matt Goslett: Why Chiswick homes are hot right now

Matt Goslett is an independent residential property expert, helping clients find their ideal home. He knows the London property market inside out but it’s west London where his main expertise lies.

Matt Goslett’s connections to the area couldn’t be stronger – born at Queen Charlotte’s hospital Shepherd’s Bush 44 years ago, he now lives in Barons Court. Matt, whose full job
description is Property Acquisition Agent and Consultant, started working in the business 10 years ago. He offers house hunters a bespoke service and will search the entire market to save clients wasting time viewing unsuitable properties.

He says Chiswick is enjoying a surge in popularity among families looking for good quality, spacious homes within easy reach of good schools, green spaces and the M4 and M40. ‘Over the past five or six years Chiswick has become a very sought-after district. People who dismissed the area a few years ago realise they can buy a great property just 20 minutes by tube from town, without paying Chelsea prices.
‘Not only does Chiswick have the river and parks, it also has homes with great Victorian architecture, many within the catchment areas for some of the best schools in London.’

Matt approaches each assignment individually: ‘No two clients are the same, each circumstance is different. My charges vary depending on what the client wants. An artist
asked me to find a big, bright studio. He’d been painting in an upstairs room at his terraced house. I found him 1,500sq ft of space which had been a recording studio. He loves it and even holds exhibitions there.’

Matt explains the difference between him and estate agents. ‘An estate agent acts on behalf of the vendor but I act for the potential purchaser. Estate agents can only show you the places they have on their books. Being independent I can search the entire market so you don’t have to. So whether you’re looking to upsize or downsize, a place for your adult children, an artist’s studio or a parking space, I’ll find it for you.’
