Prior to property search Philip Seidl spent 18 years in the music industry as a marketing, press and promotions specialist at Sony Music, Telstar Records and the Sanctuary Music Group working with scores of hugely successful recording artists.
Since 2006 he has sourced and acquired residential and commercial property in London for high net worth private clients at Oakhall Property Source, Templeton Property Search and most recently Black Brick.
Philip's excellent relationships with property professionals combined with his extensive experience and knowledge of the prime central London property market means he often has access to off or pre market properties and will ensure his clients purchase their property at the best possible price.
