It’s official – we’re in London’s Top 6!

We might as well admit it: here at ReQuest, we’re proud of ourselves. Very proud. But we like to think you’ll understand. After all, if you can’t be proud of yourself when you’ve just won a major award, when can you be? And we’ve just won a major award. So we hope you’ll forgive us if we bask, just for a moment, in a little bit of glory!

And now you’re wondering: what has ReQuest done to deserve such an accolade? Well, it’s simple really – we’ve been recognised as being in the Top 6 Luxury Property Management Companies in London for 2020. And this recognition doesn’t come from just anyone – it’s an official announcement from Luxury Lifestyle Awards, a global awards body that specialises in identifying and promoting the best luxury goods and services from across the world. The organisation’s goal is to connect people with the best of luxury. And, to do so, its experts evaluate more than 10,000 goods and services in 400 categories, from 60 countries, before arriving at their conclusions. Given this, you can probably see why we’re delighted to have been nominated in one of their Global Top Lists.

Another question you might have on your lips is: what makes us so special? Let’s face it, there are lots of companies out there that offer services similar to ours. But while this may be true, it’s also true that few – if any – companies surpass (or even match!) our sheer service quality and levels of attention to detail. This is something that we have believed ever since launching ReQuest, but now it’s a fact that has been independently and credibly verified. And we (just in case you hadn’t realised) are as pleased as the proverbial Punch about it.

This service quality, of course, is no accident. We’ve always been fully aware that it’s this that differentiates one lifestyle management company from another, and delivering the ultimate in service quality to our clients has always been the central pillar of our business philosophy. Everything we do is precisely geared to making sure that we completely understand the client’s needs and that we fulfil them to perfection in every detail. That’s why all of our personal lifestyle managers are selected with such care – we make sure that every single one of them is completely in tune with our objectives and has the personal and operational skills to help us meet them.

And we’re pleased to be able to report that it’s not just Luxury Lifestyle Awards who recognise the quality of what we do. Our clients do, too. That’s why so many of them use our services time and again. Take Ian Walker, for example, who owns a Portfolio of tenanted properties across Hertfordshire and North London.  As the Founder and CEO of Advisorz, a successful business consultancy, Ian is often abroad for extended periods, on either business or pleasure. And he asks us to manage his properties while he’s away.

“It’s a huge weight off my mind,“ says Ian “to know that everything will be looked after properly and professionally, while I’m away. Since delegating this responsibility to ReQuest, I’ve never had a single complaint from a tenant or returned to a problem with a property. To my mind, the service is worth every penny.”  

But Ian isn’t the only client with such views. We could quote many more. But we don’t want to bore you (if we haven’t already!). We’ll only add that our philosophy of excellence, and the resulting client satisfaction that we see with our property management services, also extends to every single one of our other services. So if you’re looking for someone to help you improve your lifestyle – give us a call!

Want to pamper yourself? Try these ideas!

For anyone that leads a busy life, the benefits of a personal concierge can be massive. All of a sudden you find your daily routine is no longer dominated by drudge tasks and cluttered with the process of planning and organising. Now, you have time to enjoy yourself: to do all those things which, before, you could never really find the time to do. In short, you can pamper yourself.

But this raises the question – by doing what? Of course, most people have a pretty clear idea of how they prefer to spend their leisure time, and you’re probably no different. Occasionally though, it’s great to be able to push the envelope of familiarity; to do something just a little away from the norm. But what? Here, we list a few ideas that, if you live around London, you might like to try.   

Get a new view – take a helicopter ride  

We’ve done this at ReQuest, and – hand on heart – it’s a pretty cool experience! Fly over London’s capital and experience the aerial view of its many world-famous landmarks in your own helicopter! It’s an experience you won’t forget in a hurry – especially if you take care to capture a few dramatic snaps for your social media feed! Prices typically vary from £150, depending on minutes airborne.

Sky-high yoga at the Shard

Talking of experiences at height, why not try this – it is, we’re assured, Europe’s highest yoga class. And at a hight of 1,016 feet, it’s easy to believe. It’s hard to think of a more extravagant way to pamper your mind and body – and, into the bargain, you’ll get a panoramic view of the city like no other. On hot days, the class is held on an open deck on the 72nd floor, which sounds pretty amazing!

Murder Mystery experience on Belmond British Pullman

If we had to choose our favourite on this list, this would be it. Hop aboard this amazing 1920s inspired train (the sister train of the famous Orient-Express) and enjoy champagne upon arrival, a delicious five-course lunch, and a terrific murder mystery experience. Starting from London Victoria, the whole experience lasts about 5 hours, but it’s so much fun that it’s over in a flash! Spaces are limited, so make sure your concierge books in advance!

Take a (spa) break!

If you’re into body massage , or facials, this is definitely for you. After all, what better way to pamper yourself than relaxing in one of London’s top spas! There are literally dozens – even hundreds – to choose from, but three of the best are the Bulgari Hotel (Knightsbridge), Akasha Spa (Regent St) and Como Shambhala (Mayfair).

Everyman Cinema

We know what you’re thinking  – a trip to the cinema is hardly pushing the boundaries of experience. But this is no ordinary cinema – it’s a boutique cinema chain that specialises in delivering a home-style experience with ultra-comfy sofa–style seats, plus food and (alcoholic) drinks served where you sit. A truly relaxing experience! 

Afternoon tea at the Ritz

Cute mini-sandwiches, wonderfully delicious cakes, a drop of Darjeeling and plush surroundings isn’t everyone’s thing. But if they’re yours, well, you won’t do better than this. It’s a very British thing to do, and it can make for a very relaxing afternoon out.  The Ritz is also right next door to Harrods, so you can always make a day of it and get a bit of retail therapy in before you go – if, that is, you don’t prefer your ReQuest personal Lifestyle Manager to do your shopping for you!
