TB_HQ welcomes our newest addition to the team, the lovely Lucy Nairn!
Lucy brings a wealth of Central London residential experience to Tavistock Bow having worked in and around the Covent Garden area for the last five years.
Director Anne-Marie Murphy says: “Lucy is a consistently high performing fee earner and has successfully earned the respect of many key clients and will continue to do so in her role with Tavistock Bow.”
Lucy adds: “My prior experience at a large agency has allowed me to forge lasting relationships within the West End property market. Having previously worked with Hannah and Anne-Marie, it was an easy decision to make when the opportunity arose to join Tavistock Bow.”
We thought we’d get to know Lucy a little better by asking her to complete our regular Q&A, LondonUndone…
Name & occupation?
Lucy Nairn – Senior Negotiator at Tavistock Bow
Best coffee in town?
I’m not a coffee drinker but I’d recommend Yao Yao Cha on Earlham Street for its amazing selection of flavoured teas.
Your favourite street is?
Carnaby Street, for the shoe shops! (and plenty of places to duck away from the hustle and bustle to grab a quick bite).
The shop you most frequent?
With so many great clothes shops in and around Covent Garden the choice is virtually limitless, but I’m a fairly regular customer at French Connection.
Favourite watering hole?
I love a good gig so I tend to frequent The Porterhouse on Maiden Lane as they have great live bands and the atmosphere is always pretty lively.
Best place for every day eats?
La Torre on Endell Street, it’s more than just a sandwich shop, its a Covent Garden institution! Great for a quick, simple lunch and the owners are always so welcoming they’re guaranteed to brighten your day.
Favourite place to eat for a treat?
I tend to change my mind on a regular basis but Gaucho Piccadilly has always been a favourite. The building used to be the home of the Spanish Ambassador, fact!
The view, building or piece of architecture that inspires you the most?
The view over Covent Garden Piazza from any of the apartments in The Russell (the residential block on the corner above Tuttons) is very cool, I could stand there and people-watch all day!
If you could change / improve anything in London…
I’d have air conditioning on the tube…. it would make getting around town in the summer so much more bearable!
What do you miss most when out of town?
Being able to walk everywhere, London is very pedestrian friendly and there’s no quicker way to get around the centre (at least when the sun’s out!)
The ultimate place in London to live would be?
Monmouth Street. Such a typical London street, buzzing all day with lots of life, beautiful period architecture and right in the middle of absolutely everything.
What’s a must do for anyone new to London?
Its still hard to beat a visit to Covent Garden Piazza to see street performers, followed by a leisurely walk along Southbank.
Any top secret tips you’re willing to share?
Book a table at Cahoots in Kingly Court for a swinging time and plenty of 1940s cocktails, you’ll be impressed!
