This is my story
Luke was born in North London on 04 November 1971, he has always loved anything to do with property, he bought his first property for £37,000.00 in Highgate (North London) at the age of 19, the studio flat was on the tenth floor of a sixties block and had amazing views but no heating or proper hot water system, he soon changed all that by completely refurbishing the entire flat, he did all the work himself and later sold it for £155,000.00.
Luke worked as model and fitness instructor for around 5 years before deciding he wanted to work full time within the property industry.
He moved to London’s Docklands and began working for high end property company Savills, he spent nearly 10 years running and selling most of the new swanky developments in and around Canary Wharf, during his time at Savills he started to buy in neighbouring Bow & Stratford where the prices were much cheaper than Docklands, he soon built up a healthy property portfolio and now has over 30 apartments in his development company.
Also during his time at Savills, he noticed the majority of his clients were high end investors with little time and struggled to find time to furnish and refurbish their new investments, thinking about this, he started a very individual interior design company “Conscious Image Interiors” the company mainly works with high end investors and looks after the furnishings and refurbishments for around 300 regular clients.
His company has grown solely on reputation and he now works with some of the most renowned property developers and investors in the world…his time is spent between running Conscious Image and buying and selling properties in and around London.
Luke has always been very involved in the running of any property he has lived in or owned and has been part of several Freehold buy outs and RTM (right to manage schemes) his knowledge on all aspects of property is huge and he still has the same passion 20 years on!
He advises international clients on where and what to buy and also works alongside property developers as a consultant on design and specification.
He regularly writes about property and interiors and is currently writing a book.
