Since inception, the firm has grown from being a two-strong team, to one of the leading independent buying agencies in London and the Home Counties. Black Brick is based in Mayfair and has an eight-strong team of property consultant professionals, carefully handpicked from across the industry for their depth of experience, specialist insight, valuable network of contacts and proven negotiation skills.
