Interesting times.  Currently, we are being fed information regarding something we cannot see or have a grip off.  Therefore, we are lapping up all we are fed.  Even the official narrative does not make sense, even within its own narrative.

We have just closed a deal over the weekend, in W2. We had the contract for some time, but I actually didn’t see the true potential of the property until my second visit. The penny did not drop. Not only is the property in a stonking location,...

I was sitting down with an agent last week, whom we’ve done business with previously. He was filling me in with what’s happening on the street. His office tied up approximately £300k of fees in the month of December. Good going considering this...
