MY ST JOHN'S WOOD
"Property activity in the area is strong from investors, young professionals and families alike."
|"Families are the key tenant demographic in the area and those properties that are competitively priced and create a good first impression are quickly snapped up. Due to the links of the Jubilee line, St. John’s Wood is particularly popular with corporate applicants. We anticipate a busy spring and summer period as companies relocate senior employees, particularly from North America."|
