Camden Team

Our team have built a wealth of knowledge and expertise in their respective sectors. Read below to understand a bit more about what drives them and please connect with them.

I have lived in Highbury since 1995 and North London for my whole life. After spending 27 years in the City, I switched careers and joined Hotblack Desiato as a Sales Negotiator in 2016. After working for 18 months in the Islington office I spent 2 ½ years the Highbury office and have now moved to Camden. One of the benefits of being a local agent living in the area that I work is that I can justify going to the local hostelries in the evening in the name of research (Well that’s what I tell my partner). My children all went to local schools and have now gone on to further education, so now I have a little more time to indulge in my passion for local history and I also have a keen interest in cycling, both road and touring. Every other weekend I like to torture myself by watching Arsenal play, although having been a season ticket holder for over 33 years you would think that I’d know better!
Born and raised in Islington, I recently graduated from the Arts university Bournemouth in the summer of 2020 with a degree in Photography. My photographic work revolves around the street, getting to know the ins and outs of a new areas and exploring new streets, it is stimulating for my creative mind and photographic work! Having done 2 weeks work experience with Hotblacks back in 2014 I was familiar with the company and was excited to return as a Junior Lettings Negotiator in June of 2020.
Born in Canonbury in 1971, I had the pleasure of going to Canonbury school. 26 years later my children followed in my footsteps. When my first child went there I was shocked at how small the hall was and how little the climbing frames were. My primary love (after my wife and four children) is skiing and I spent 6 years as a ski instructor in the French Alps and travelling the world. However, a broken back cut that career short. I started in estate agency in 1995, joining Hotblack Desiato in 1998 with partnership following in 2003. I ski as often as having 4 children allows me and I have a passion for architecture/ design and sailing.
Can't recommend Hotblack Desiato highly enough. They were attentive, readily available and highly professional, and came up with numerous creative solutions to problems that presented in the process of selling my flat. Mark managed the negotiation proces ... Read More

Decided to list our property with Hotblack as they are experts on the Camden market place and selling through a difficult period. The service we received from Mark was brilliant, a (very) quick and seamless process. I couldn’t have asked for more. Much ... Read More

We were very pleased with the professional and effective service we received from Stuart Sheirs and his team in the sale of our flat in Islington. Stuart marketed it well, responded promptly to queries and kept us informed. There was no 'hard sell' and ... Read More

Just bought from Stuart and Rafe. Stuart is higly responsive and dedicated to the mission of getting to exchange and getting it done. Rafe is charming. It hard to find good agents, I have used several over the years and can recommend these guys.

Hotblack have found new tenants for my properties for 10 years or so. I have always found them to be at the top of their game and the quality of tenants, the best that one could possibly expect.

Phil Bradbury
