Chestertons experts turn media pundits as property industry reacts to Brexit

Following last month's momentous "out" vote, there has been - as you can imagine - a huge amount of press and media interest in the property industry's reaction to the result and what it may mean for housing markets; during one of the busiest and most topsy-turvy economic and political times in the world.

In British post-war history, Chestertons experts featured on the BBC's rolling web coverage as the result unfolded on 24 June, as well as on the Guardian Online that weekend, the Observer on Sunday and the Monday morning on page 4 of the Financial Times and on

As a top London estate agent Chestertons was of course quoted in the Evening Standard and also online for The Independent, an article which led directly to a number of fresh instructions for the business. Senior executive Guy Gittins then was quoted extensively in the Bricks & Mortar property supplement in the Times on the Friday, one week on from the historic result, and in The Week's coverage of the preceding few days' media coverage we were also quoted.

Chestertons experts also briefed journalists at Bloomberg, Mansion Global (Dow Jones) and The Telegraph, and senior executive Cory Askew was interviewed in Docklands by business editor Ed Conway on Sky News.

The BBC's business team is also hoping for follow-up comments on how changes by the Bank of England aimed at shoring up the property market will help first-time buyers, while the FT, Gulf Times, Property Week and Architects' Journal have all asked for comments as to how the development picture will be affected by the vote. So it's certainly a case of watch this space!
