Savills, estate agents to the hoi poloi, are as rich as their clientelle it seems.
To the six months to June 30th, they have reported a 39% surge in pre-tax profit to £20m compared to £14.4m in the same period last year. Turnover was £335m, over £6m per week.
They credit the strong London market (in other words, an easier market) with enabling these heightened results.
Savills average fee is around 2% plus vat on selling price. Savills list their property stock on no more websites than eMoov do.
