Estate agents serving Belgravia
Before you even start planning a move, the first step is finding the perfect home. There are a number of good estate agents who have offices in and around Belgravia. It’s a good choice to use a local agent, as they have a better understanding of the area and may have advance knowledge of potential properties before they come to market.

Knight Frank has a dedicated office to cover Belgravia and Westminster, on hand to help you source the most desirable properties in SW1. Similarly, John D Wood & Co, based in Elizabeth Street in Belgravia, also has a good understanding of the residential area.
House and furniture cleaning
Before you move into your new property, you may wish to have a deep clean before moving your possessions in. Or you may be looking for an ongoing cleaning service for your new property. There are a number of trusted and vetted cleaning services in and around Belgravia, used by the current residents.
