The person behind West London Property Networking
West London Property Networking was set up by local businesswoman Pelin Martin. Pelin has a keen interest in the property industry and she owns and runs Blue Crystal London.This is a West London-based property, block and estate management company. Pelin Martin is a shrewd investor herself with many years’ experience in the industry.
Pelin participated in many property networking groups throughout London and the UK. This way, she felt that West London needed a group of its own to cater for the large number of property people and related businesses in the area. So, she created West London Property Networking to fill the gap in the market.

There is no doubt in my mind that, unfortunately, the UK is going to slip into recession. This means that businesses will close and people will lose their jobs. As a result, the property market will see a fall in prices.
Personally, I don’t think it will be a crash as big as the 2008/2009 property crash. Let’s be honest, no one really knows what will happen to property prices. But if I had to take a guess, I would say that I think it could be an average of 15% reduction in values. Some areas may be more and some areas may be less.
So what makes me say 15%? Well the Bank of England have said, they think this could be the drop in house prices. I think many property surveyors have taken this on board.
