Poacher Turned Gamekeeper Tim Johnston, joins fast growing YOUhome as Chelsea Property Guru
As a 16-year veteran in sales and acquisitions within the Prime Central London residential market, Tim Johnston is the latest hire at YOUhome, adding to the growing team.
Most recently with Mercury Homesearch, Johnston joins as the SW3 and SW10 Chelsea Property Guru with his deep experience in the postcodes. Johnston is the latest industry veteran to become a YOUhome Property Guru; a home sales expert and local property market analyst.
Johnston brings a deep understanding of what buyers are seeking, having run his own acquisitions firm for several years. Originally in marketing and telecommunications, Johnston made the switch to the property industry when he had the opportunity to manage the office of a Knightsbridge agent, and found his knowledge of the property industry was resulting in success.
Johnston says of his new role, “It is invigorating to be amongst the experience and expertise of the very best property individuals in their area, and the opportunity to access market leading hyperlocal research allows us as Gurus to achieve the best sale possible for all of our home sellers.”
“There continues to be news of the ‘doom and gloom’ hitting the PCL market, but we like to consider ourselves a breath of fresh air with a point of view that the PCL market will continue to see positive results. We are consistently seeing success in selling properties other agents have been unable to,” says Laurence Lai, YOUhome Sales Director & Property Guru. “Tim is known for his thoughtful and informed approach to selling and we knew he was an ideal hire to continue to build our team of Gurus who deliver for our home sellers, in any market condition.”
A new category of estate agency, YOUhome takes a bespoke approach that provides home sellers with Property Gurus that are both home sales experts and local property market analysts. The Gurus pair their seasoned property knowledge with hyperlocal market analysis and comparisons; gathered via YOUhome’s proprietary platform which is also made accessible directly to its vendors.
Johnston marks the second veteran hire since the start of the year, with Hugo Headlam, formerly of John D. Wood, joining in January. Johnston joins YOUhome effective immediately.
YOUhome is a new category of estate agent that provides the full roster of services any home seller needs and was developed out of a desire to help home sellers specifically as they navigate the often-difficult experience of selling their most valuable asset. YOUhome Property Gurus leverage a bespoke combination of unparalleled research and technology with an experienced, emotionally connected approach. All offered at a disruptively fair fee thanks to lower overheads compared to the traditional agency model.
