Savills has promoted Sophie Barton, an associate director in its Wandsworth sales team, to take on the role of head of sales and oversee its multi-disciplinary East Sheen office.
Having joined the firm’s Wandsworth sales department in April last year, Sophie steps into her new position with circa eight years of industry experience and intricate knowledge of the area and its sales market.
After graduating from Durham University, Sophie started her property career as a sales negotiator at Douglas and Gordon before spending several years at Winkworth, where she progressed to assistant sales manager. At Savills, Sophie has established herself quickly within the residential sales business since joining the Wandsworth office as an associate director. Throughout her property career, Sophie has specialised in southwest London.
As head of residential sales, Sophie will oversee the East Sheen office, valuations and client relations, leading a team comprising several specialists handling the sale of properties at all market levels, ranging from terraced cottages to flats to substantial family houses. Sophie will also work closely with the cluster of nearby Savills offices, including Barnes, Putney and Richmond.
Of her appointment, Sophie Barton comments: “Having worked in southwest London for many years in the Fulham, Putney and Wandsworth areas, I am thrilled to be joining the fantastic team in East Sheen. It is a beautiful area and one I know increasingly well from regular walks in Richmond Park with my dog Arnold. East Sheen offers so much variety, from first-home flats all the way through to characterful houses set in acres of land.
I will bring my experience and enthusiasm to the role, and look forward to collaborating with our lettings and residential development colleagues as well as our local offices. Some of my existing clients from Wandsworth are looking for properties in East Sheen, and I look forward to fostering client continuation as well as forging many new client relationships through offering the highest standard of care.”
Head of Savills South West region, Robin Chatwin, adds: “We are delighted to see Sophie take the next step in her career with the role of head of sales in East Sheen. Since joining Savills, Sophie has gone from strength to strength, showing herself to be a trusted advisor offering in-depth and market-relevant knowledge for clients looking to buy. I look forward to Sophie growing the business while continuing the high level of care, knowledge and professionalism for which the office is renowned.”
