I learnt my trade in London, where I worked for 18 years in Notting Hill and Kensington, selling prime flats, larger houses and everything in between. This taught me the best tricks for negotiating hard in a competitive market. It was important to stay ahead of the game and many of my most significant sales were handled off market. My knowledge, reputation and client base have helped me build a solid and influential business throughout my career, with many crossovers between London and the country.
We relocated from London in 2004 and I later moved to Strutt and Parker’s Newbury office, where I headed up the sales department for five years, before joining their buying arm Private Property Search in 2014. After 4 and a half very successful years, buying in the West Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire, South Oxfordshire and The Cotswolds, I have decided to go it alone and so am excited to have launched Lucy Winfield Property Search. There are very few properties in my core area that are unfamiliar to me and I am enormously excited about this next chapter. I have lived in the Lambourn Valley for the past 10 years, in the heart of the ‘Valley of the Racehorse’, with my husband and two children. Unsurprisingly, we all have a keen interest in racing and my children are members of the pony club. At weekends we enjoy any excuse to explore the Downs and the beautiful area we live in.
