Nicholas Ayre, Home Fusion

Nicholas Ayre was bitten by the property bug soon after he arrived in London from New Zealand in 1994. In 2003, having already conducted several property searches for friends during his spare time, he quit his career in media and technology to set up Home Fusion. He is used to buying and renting homes across central London, and has managed dozens of searches across the capital. He has found property from the West End to the City, from Clapham to Hampstead, from Holland Park to Clerkenwell - and beyond.

Having completely renovated several flats himself, Nicholas is particularly familiar with all manner of practical issues related to property refurbishment. He has worked with clients from the UK and countries as diverse as Russia, Australia, the U.S., China and the Gulf States.

And with nearly a decade's experience in the London property scene, he is well-positioned to share his experience and contacts to benefit clients as they find their next property in London.
