Have you met our Estate Agency team?

GKR London was established in 2010 for the residential property industry. Grant Kaveney, Founding Director had already established a strong reputation for himself within the sector whilst working for a corporate brand and had gained trust and loyalty from many whom wished to continue working with Grant no matter the agency he was representing. In 2013, Grant hired Michael Woda, Head of Residential to support him with the growth of the team, and with many years industry experience in property Michael was able to establish his own credibility very quickly. 

Whether agency, new homes or land & acquisitions, an office boutique or a global corporate organisation we will continue to support a diverse range of clients and candidates within the residential property industry.
