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.

Meet the estate agency team

Partner, Head of Residential
Joined July 2014

Michael Woda

Distinctive features throughout and striking white render.

Michael joined GKR as one of our first key hires in 2014 bringing with him eight years’ experience in property, now responsible for a team of six. If not in the office hoping for a whole in one, you’ll likely find him on the course – aye! Not to mention Brick Lane, devouring the Indian delicacies.

Director
Joined October 2016

Lee Riley

A perfect example of period property with luxuriously fitted carpets.

Lee has worked in residential recruitment since late 2015 after working in the property sector for almost seven years himself. Whilst our entire team’s food bin/hoover, he’s a self-declared Asian food addict. Historically pooch obsessed; now with a fur baby of his own, he’s got the situation under control.

Recruitment Consultant
Joined June 2019

Oliver Nathan

A truly classic find, with minimal yet stylish interiors.

Oliver joined GKR's residential team in March 2019 having gained some experience in recruitment and following four years' property experience in client services, sales and lettings. A fellow Saffa, again with strong appreciation for a meat of course, but also a keen interest in writing. With his very own autobiography underway, we’re exciting ourselves for a new claim to fame!

Recruitment Consultant
Joined March 2019

Daisy Maher

Stylishly presented and situated close to the local bars.

Daisy joined GKR's residential team in 2019 with five years' experience working in the London property market and an additional year in both New Zealand and Australia managing property portfolios. Partial to the odd Friday McDonald's, Daisy is a social butterfly and rarely spotted not sporting her airpod's, on the phone to a candidate/client or friend! 

Recruitment Consultant
Joined December 2019

Conán Finnegan

An exquisite new development full of character.

Conán joined GKR's residential team in December following his move to the city. Originally from Ireland, Conán brings with him some experience in both sales and hospitality and a cracking attitude to kick things off in 2020. An aspiring Conor McGregor, and soon to be competing for charity, with a fondness for all kinds of pasta.  

Recruitment Consultant
Joined February 2020

Sean O'Neill

Boasting period features, this modern extension oozes sophistication.

Sean joins GKR's residential team bringing with him almost three years first-hand agency experience in London. Sean is partial to the occasional/bi-weekly burrito and whilst he is sinking his teeth into recruitment, he is not messing around!
