About Us

Colin Mackenzie FRICS FNAEA


Colin qualified in the early 1970’s, running offices in Sussex and Kent for Hamptons before taking over the helm of their London Country house department in the mid 1980’s; he now offers over 45 years’ experience of the country house and estates markets across the south of England.

It was the appeal of working to find clients their ideal house that led Colin to change direction in the late 1990’s and, following a spell with the buying team at Knight Frank, Colin and Elizabeth formed their own search consultancy in 2003.

Elizabeth Mercer BA (Hons) MNAEA


From a background and degree in marketing, Liz joined Savills’ international department in the late 1990’s to take responsibility for residential developments across Europe and the West Indies.

Liz has co-ordinated searches across the south east and found houses for numerous clients – largely based on her exceptional understanding of her clients’ requirements and the close affinity she has built up with key people in the main selling agents across the area.

Tracy Bryant


From an early career in the Royal Navy, Tracy brings with her sound management skills.  Now joining us from the local independent schools sector, she is well versed in the issues relating to relocation to the South East.

Her thorough knowledge of the area and wide network of contacts  underpin her genuine desire to find the complete solution for our clients.  With her calm and approachable manner, Tracy is able to offer a considered view on location practicalities in the property search process, as well as advice
on all school related matters.

Being totally independent gives us complete impartiality in making recommendations to clients, whether in the search process or in helping secure their purchase at best value.

With our unrivalled experience, having purchased or sold countless houses, can you afford to buy without us?

“Thank you for all your support, particularly over the last three months as you helped wrestle our purchase to the ground…. We have really enjoyed working with you. You have provided boundless energy and enthusiasm and have been a great source of advice. House buying is such a complicated and stressful process. Your experience and balance has been invaluable and I am not sure we would have managed t without you. We will recommend you unreservedly to family and friends.”
