About

Forbes Gilbert-Green is a private client advisor, transacting exclusively on the most exceptional real estate in prime Central London. We identify, advise, sell or acquire rare, heritage properties and outstanding new build assets across the capital’s most covetable postcodes.

Our long-established relationships with clients, buying agents, other estate agents, stakeholders and international brokers mean that we have a phenomenal international network with which to market our clients’ properties — and to source the most exceptional homes in the world.

We are committed to adding significant value to our clients’ property transactions. Always operating with the utmost discretion and integrity.  We offer our clients an encyclopaedic knowledge of the prime market, access to our long-established network across the property industry and referrals to the best professional advisors.

We pride ourselves on prioritising our clients’ right to privacy. Our team has built a reputation for acting on behalf of the world’s most discerning and private individuals, investors, trusts and family offices — with most of our transactions being conducted off-market. We act as gatekeepers and protectors of our client's interests while seeking out the best route to a successful transaction; creating a bespoke, strategic approach tailored to suit each client’s needs.

‘Our founders are rated as Top 10 Property Experts by Spear’s Wealth Magazine’.
