ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR & HEAD OF LETTINGS

Robby has been with Circa London from the very outset. He has played a significant part in the company's growth and brand. You will be hard-pressed to find a more dedicated and professional estate agent with as much local market knowledge and experience in residential lettings.

He prides himself on securing the highest calibre of tenants, ensuring the rental experience meets their expectations. As a result, the properties are often let for longer as happy tenants stay put. Most importantly, Robby listens to gain a complete understanding of our client's requirements, and he is frequently complimented on the straightforward, friendly, and personal manner that he offers.

"The private rental market has a plethora of legislation to navigate. Whether new to renting out property or a seasoned landlord, staying abreast of the ever-evolving laws can be challenging. As landlords, we must advocate for our clients, ensuring they understand and comply with all legal requirements. This involves guiding them through their responsibilities and ensuring they meet them fully. By doing so, we protect landlords and act as guardians for tenants. The welfare of both parties is intertwined, and by safeguarding one, we inherently care for the other", says Robby. "Everyone at Circa London has a positive approach, ensuring we deliver on promises with an anything is possible attitude."

"Globe trotter" Robby loves to trawl through travel websites and blogs, researching the next place he’d like to visit. Robby has run the London Marathon and is a Spurs supporter.
