50 Acquisition International - Business Excellence Awards 2023 “They asked us our opinion and I explained that we wouldn’t be interested in selling the original consent as we would not be able to give them the service that we are known for,” Debbie explains. “I said that if they allowed us the opportunity of working with their architect to obtain planning for three detached houses, then we would be delighted to be instructed and we would create a lot higher GDV (gross development value) than the proposed scheme.” The developer was clearly impressed with Debbie Ingram’s creativity as all the other agents had simply given them the prices for what they had planning for. “They took a leap of faith and let us show them and their architects what would create the best results,” Debbie enthuses. “We ended up with three detached houses and we sold them all off plan. The total GDV was more than 20% than the previous scheme. We know the right product for the site and we do not give up until it’s absolutely perfect!” It is clear that Debbie’s passion, enthusiasm, and tenacity knows no bounds. Her attention to detail is second to none and, quite simply, she never gives up. This makes her a formidable force to be reckoned with in the property industry. When recruiting, Debbie looks for like-minded, tenacious candidates who are prepared to work hard to achieve the top results. “We are a very tight group and my team have been trained in the Debbie Ingram way,” she continues. “They know exactly what is expected of them and they always deliver.” And this approach is certainly paying off. Last year, Debbie Ingram won the award for Best Off-Market Sales in North West London and, this year, the firm has bettered itself by scooping the prestigious accolade of Best Residential Property Sales Agency 2023 - North West London. The award is testament to the hard work and dedication shown by Debbie and the team and, as the future beckons, she has her sights firmly set on working with more developers in order to continue creating premium properties for her clients to purchase. Contact: Debbie Ingram Company: Debbie Ingram Web Address: www.debbieingram.co.uk Best Residential Property Sales Agency 2023 - North West London ebbie Ingram Property Consultancy (Debbie Ingram) is a name which is synonymous with the purchase and sale of prestigious, high-end properties in the Hendon, Mill Hill, and Finchley areas. The consultancy specialises in two main areas: off market sales of upper end residential sales, and a very successful new homes and land department where it sells new homes off plan and assembles the land to make the development possible. Established in 2004 by its namesake, Debbie Ingram, the company’s main demographic of residential clients are commonly downsizers who are selling large houses and looking for something special to move to. “The beauty of what we do is that on many occasions the people selling their homes will buy one of our new home apartments or houses, so the two areas dovetail beautifully,” Debbie explains. She also tells us that discretion is paramount at Debbie Ingram and vendors’ and purchasers’ details are never discussed, with every transaction being treated with the utmost respect and privacy. “We go above and beyond for our clients, we treat every instruction as if it’s our only instruction, and look after our clients from beginning to end. We only want to treat people how we would want to be treated.” When it comes to standing out from competitors, Debbie Ingram is head and shoulders above the rest as it has sold more prime property in Hendon than any other agent and is now proving to be doing the same in Mill Hill. “Our USP is the ability to match buyers with properties and never having to go online to look for buyers,” Debbie elaborates. “Everything we do is off market and the people that we are working for want their sales and purchases dealt with in this way. We achieve excellence by being the best agent and by always delivering more than the client ever dreamt of.” Debbie uses an example to highlight her point and which shows the firm to be leaders in what it does. Recently, it was asked by a developer to sell three new builds in Mill Hill. The site had planning for a pair of semi-detached houses along with one detached property and the company was interviewing Debbie Ingram along with a few other agents.
