David Forbes is Head of The Private Office at Savills which he joined to set up in 2007. The Private Office has been established by Savills to combine exemplary service with the network, resources and expertise and the highest standards of discretion that only global organisations can provide successfully. It 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 Savills. David regularly travels around the world acquainting himself with the lifestyles and tastes enjoyed overseas, thus enabling him to understand the requirement of the increasing number of people wanting to live in London and to advise developers and vendors accordingly.
He became a partner with Chesterfield estate agents in 1984, predominantly selling high end properties in Belgravia, Chelsea and Knightsbridge. Over the last 28 years David has become recognised as an expert 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 personal network of clients providing invaluable advice to all.
David offers his clients the degree of professionalism they have come to expect, with the bonus of the broader marketing presence of the Savills organisation.
With Chesterfield clearly being recognised as one of the leading agencies in central London, David was delighted when Savills announced the further expansion of its business with the acquisition of Chesterfield in 2006.
