David Forbes is Chairman of The Private Office at Savills which he set up in 2007.
The Private Office was established to combine exemplary service with the resources and expertise, as well as the highest standards of discretion, that only a global organisation such as Savills can provide. The Private Office offers clients a highly experienced point of contact with an in-depth knowledge of Savills global business, ensuring that clients are assigned the correct contact or department within the organisation. David regularly travels the world, acquainting himself with the tastes and lifestyles of overseas customers, thus enabling him to understand the requirements of the increasing number of people wanting to live in London, and to advise developers and vendors accordingly.
David became a partner of Chesterfield estate agents in 1984, selling high end properties in Belgravia, Chelsea and Knightsbridge. As Chesterfield became recognised as one of the leading estate agencies in central London, David was delighted when Savills announced the further expansion of its business with the acquisition of Chesterfield in 2006.
With over four decades of experience, David is acknowledged to be an expert on property at the top end of the residential market, responsible for the sale of many of London’s most expensive houses and has built up a vast network of clients, providing invaluable advice to all. David offers all his clients the degree of professionalism he is renowned for, with the bonus of the broader marketing presence of the Savills organisation.
