His professional skill in the sale of prime and country houses was hugely appreciated by clients and staff across the country and we have lost a very special man” says Joanna Cocking, head of prime and country houses at Hamptons International.
Peter Everett, the agency’s head of country sales, says: “Nick was one of the good guys in the industry and will be very sorely missed by everyone within the Hamptons International family. We are very proud to have known and worked closely with him over the past few years.”
