Oliver Lurot has been working at the highest levels of the property market – in London and beyond – for 25 years. In that time, he has established his reputation as one of the foremost property advisors in the capital. Beyond his extensive experience in sales, acquisitions, rentals and developments, Oliver has built a unique network within the industry, giving him unparalleled access to opportunities and market intelligence for his clients.
Property is in Oliver’s blood. He joined the family firm, Lurot Brand, when he returned to the UK from a stint in France. Here he worked his way up to the position of Sales director, and expanded the business substantially during his tenure. In 2012, he was approached by Savills to open their Notting Hill office, where he built and established a significant business working with properties from several million to over £50 million in value predominantly in Notting Hill, Holland Park, Kensington and surrounds. A fluent French speaker, Oliver’s network extends beyond the UK to key markets in France, Europe and North America.
Oliver’s values, diligence and determination for his clients can also be seen in some of his personal pursuits. He undertook his military service in France with an elite parachute regiment – and spent his time “jumping out of perfectly good planes” as he puts it. A keen runner, in 2018 he completed the vaunted Marathon des Sables ultramarathon.
Oliver is also a keen motorcyclist but has recently gone “green” so you may see him zipping around London on his electric BMW motorcycle.
Peggy Lurot started her property career in the South of France 25 years ago. Coincidentally, like Oliver, she also comes from a property background having worked for many years with her family who owned a multi-branch estate agency on the Cote d'Azur with offices in Nice and two southern Alp ski resorts. Peggy worked her way up through the business where her organisational skills and ability to deal with any challenge was recognised allowing her to be promoted to managing their 200+ seasonal property rental portfolio and subsequently to running one of their ski resort agencies where she was able to concentrate on the sale of many of the agency's new developments and other flats and chalets.
Peggy moved to the UK with Oliver in 1999. After a few years looking after their three boys, she returned to work as a negotiator for an estate agency in Central London. During her time working for this company she was not only one of the top negotiators, but her flair for marketing was also recognised, leading to her running all aspects of the company's "communications".
Throughout her career, Peggy’s main focus has always been to help people find their perfect home and support them through what can be an emotional process. Her ability to listen and understand the requirements of her clients combined with a great attention to detail continues to help her achieve great results for her clients.
Now as part of the Oliver & Co team, Peggy will be able to give invaluable support and broad experience to all our clients.
Peggy splits her time between London and the family home in Wiltshire where, in addition to the comings and goings of her three sons, you'll find her happily ensconced with her four legged friends: Biscuit the horse, Otis the golden retriever and Pebbles the Bengal cat.
