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.
Raised in North West London, I recently moved to Hertfordshire which means I get the best of both worlds; city life when I’m working and the fresh country air on weekends and to cap it off my commute in to work is now actually quicker than before! I have been working in the property industry since 2008 so I have many years of experience behind me prior to which I was travelling the world for a year after graduating from university. I’ve been at the Highbury Office now for many years and it is a very pleasant part of town to work in with a real community vibe, lots of greenery and open spaces. The job itself is very rewarding with everyday being different bringing fresh challenges and keeping me on my toes.
Hiten was incredibly helpful and supportive as I went through a challenging sales process. He was proactive and willing to do whatever was necessary to get everything over the line. Would highly recommend.

Gino was extremely helpful and responsive. It was great how he really listened to what we needed and was able to advise us on how to close on a rental in a short timespan.

We worked with Gino. He was really professional and kind for us even though we were unusal to contract the property since it was our first house to live in London. He replies all the email as soon as he can.

Bought a house that was on with Hotblack recently. The agent, Mark was a breath of fresh air compared to a lot of agents I've dealt with. Super honest and transparent, always available to give impartial advice on the process and best way to move forward. ... Read More

Gino was personable and kept me informed throughout the tenancy arrangement process. The vetting service was slow and less competent than I would expect - but Gino kept me up to date on progress. This was reassuring as I had recently experienced a stressf ... Read More
