A recent addition to the Robert Bailey team, property buyer Caroline Levy says her role encompasses three elements: ‘to know the market, to know your client, and to understand their specific property needs and desires.’ A former lawyer and film executive, Levy is a former client herself. Impressed by their excellent knowledge and extraordinary quality of service, she decided to put her name forward to be the firm’s next acquisition.
Regarded as one of London’s best property buyers, the firm’s offer focuses on houses over £5 million, including the super prime market (over £20 million). As a crucial part of a small team, Levy’s role focuses on helping private clients to identify residential property acquisitions within central London, as well as connecting clients with her growing network of surveyors, builders, architects and interior designers. She adds that a good knowledge of clients’ styles and needs helps with the latter.
In line with the firm’s holistic approach to UHNW clients, Levy has also helped clients find contacts who can help them with their other lifestyle and residential needs - including school advisers and health practitioners. ‘We understand that our clients are not just buying a property; they are buying a home,’ she says.
Prior to her property career, the LSE graduate worked in New York as a vice-president for Polygram, the British-American film studio that was eventually folded into Universal Pictures, and as head of business affairs at Working Title Films. Before that, she qualified as a lawyer with the commercial film Jacques & Lewis (a constituent firm to the Eversheds merger) where she practiced for six years.
Returning to London after working for Polygram, Levy became involved in fundraising for several charitable foundations, including the Elton John Aids Foundation, the English National Ballet School, and Save the Children International. She recently completed an MBA Essentials course at the LSE, her alma mater.
