Martyn Gerrard in the news- August

Alongside regular advertising efforts, we at Martyn Gerrard liaise with a specialist media agency to maximise the marketing of your property. Gaining media exposure across both London and national newspapers, as well as respected magazines and informative radio channels, has always been our approach and at the top of the agenda, having continuously proven effective in gaining the best results for customers.


Our agency helps ensure substantial exposure of your property through various media channels. As you can imagine in recent months this has involved discussing the impact that Coronavirus has had on the property sector and making the case for effective government support for buyers, sellers and landlords both throughout lockdown and beyond. This has included two appearances on BBC London, where in interviews conducted over zoom Simon appeared on the evening news to discuss first the impact that of the lockdown on the estate agent sector, and then how Martyn Gerrard were working to safely and successfully sell homes under government guidelines. The Evening Standard also did a dedicated piece on the positive impact that the re-opening of home moves had on enquiries, and following Sunak's announcement of a stamp duty holiday Simon's views on the insufficiency of this move to properly support the property market were featured across a range of key industry and local titles - all ensuring Martyn Gerrard is the leading voice in property in London and beyond.
