His Dad initially. He spent his initial years in office space consultancy as a Central London office space agent. After closing a deal in a serviced office by sheer chance, he realised there was a huge gap in the office space market. No one was focused on flexible offices. This led him to establish the first-ever property agency that specialised in representing tenants seeking flexible/serviced office space in 1993.
Richard is excellent at:
Understanding what you really need and matching it with a shortlist of office space options
Providing free and impartial advice on office spaces
Negotiating savings for you – he truly knows the flexible office space market
1n 1993, he founded Office Freedom, the first-ever commercial property consultants to specialise in flexible and serviced offices. They have placed over 38,000 clients and have coverage in over 1,000 cities in over 100 countries.
