Drury Estates was set up in 1987 by Ray Fry OBE ED FRICS Chartered Surveyor (now retired) and Mike Harris BSc CEng MICE, MNAEA, MARLA. Ray was, for 13 years, the Commissioner of Rating and Valuation in Hong Kong, before becoming a Partner with Knight Frank and Rutley’s associate company in Hong Kong. Mike had worked within expatriate communities for nearly 12 years before starting up Drury Estates and has now been involved with various aspects of the residential property business for over 40 years. Mike is responsible for the Company finances/accounts and for property searches and acquisitions. Our Managing Director, Nick Browne, has been with the company for 22 years and is responsible for all day to day activities, including sales, lettings, management, refurbishments etc.
Drury Estates, as well as property lettings and sales, specialise in acting on behalf of clients in the acquisition and sale of London residential property, and also in the refurbishment, furnishing, letting and management of top-end residential investment properties. We concentrate on London, partly because we feel that we can best provide a full professional service in an area we know well, but also because we consider this to have proved, over the years, to be the most suitable location in the UK in investment terms (both for letting return where relevant and for potential capital growth).
