At Obbard we place great importance on building long-term relationships with our clients, which range from private investors to institutions. We treat each client as an individual, whether we are working with a private client seeking a one bedroom flat in Kensington through to, for example, the first resale of a three bedroom flat in the luxury development One Hyde Park at £17 million. For institutional and family office investors, we have advised on residential acquisitions up to a single value of £180 million.
Some of our clients are foreign investors wishing to diversify their investments to prime London property; others are UK based, building up a buy-to-let portfolio. We have clients investing in London property for their own needs and overseas clients requiring apartments for their children who are being educated in London.
Our clients are based worldwide. In 2012, for example, we advised clients from all corners of the earth - India, Russia, Italy, South Africa, Qatar, Jordan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, USA, Canada, Ireland, Australia and the United Kingdom. Obbard also has many clients who continue to invest with us on a regular basis.

Relocation agents must be seen to be acting for their clients and therefore they cannot give endorsements, these however are genuine utterances that we have received reguarly.
'We love showing your properties'
'Your company never fails to impress'
'Do you have any of your properties available by any chance'
'You seem to know exactly what our clients want'
'Thank goodness someone who provides sufficient storage and proper appliances'
And finally the requests that are greeted with a resounding 'no'!
