The Knight Frank Dulwich office is headed by Paul Humphreys who brings to the role over 30 years’ experience in the property profession. Having originally qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in commercial real estate, Paul quickly found his passion in residential property and headed a 7 branch residential network in Prime Central London, prior to accepting the challenge of building up Knight Frank's France and Monaco network from 6 to over 20 offices. In 2012 Paul decided to return to the UK, where his transition back to London was complete when Knight Frank was asked to purchase a long established estate agency in beautiful Dulwich Village. At the end of Paul’s first year in Dulwich he received a landmark instruction to sell Bell House on College Road (approximately 12,000 sq ft, Grade II* listed) which he sold for in excess of the asking price (£9,500,000). Paul is closely supported by Negotiators Laura Peet and Catherine Stage.
Before joining the Dulwich Village office, Laura spent 6 years working in Knight Frank's St John's Wood office and has a great depth of experience in the marketing and strategy aspect of both core and prime market properties. A South East London resident herself for 7 years, her particular passion is client care: making sure that vendors feel informed every step of the way throughout the sales process, which can sometimes be a daunting prospect. Laura has sold many properties for 'absent' clients (living overseas or outside of London, or corporate structures) so understands that communication is key to bringing a sale to a successful conclusion.
Catherine joined Knight Frank in March 2015 after its purchase of Spencer Kennedy, the longest established estate agent in Dulwich Village. Catherine has lived in Dulwich for 11 years and her children are enrolled at the local schools, so has exceptional experience of the area and its amenities. Catherine brings the discretion and professionalism she learnt in the board rooms of the City to her second career. She prides herself on her in-depth knowledge of the Dulwich property market and enjoys meeting both new vendors and new applicants and assisting them with their property needs.
The team are supported by Office Manager Charlotte Thomas, who manages the marketing and administration of the office, and resident Knight Frank Finance expert Matt Connor. The office is also closely linked to and supported by Knight Frank’s London network of 30 offices and the residential development team at our HQ in Baker Street and regularly draws on its further national and International network of offices and services.
