60 Seconds with our Land Director, Quentin Webster
How did you get into property?
My Father was a developer so I grew up in the industry and then studied Urban Estate Management at University
What do you like most about your job?
I like the industry, the larger than life personalities and the ability to shape Cities
What challenges do you face?
There is always a new challenge on the horizon, be it the incorporation of much needed social housing, the demands of funders or as we have now experienced the shock of a Global Pandemic. But Brick and Mortar always finds a way to survive
What do you think will change in the property sector in the coming year?
I think the freedom to work and travel will make a huge difference in the way people feel. The sense of relief. Brexit will clearly have a massive influence on the London market and the “work from home” culture that has been forced to develop will clearly have a huge effect on the office market, maybe even freeing up a few opportunities for residential
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I am involved, in however small a way, in shaping the skyline of the largest global city in the World.
Who are your influencers?
My Father is a huge influence in my life both private and professional as are some very good friends that I have made in the industry, working for, with and sometimes even against!
What are you looking forward to?
A very Dry Vodka Martini and a dozen oysters in Quo Vadis with friends
