Introducing you to our agency and investment summer intern, Alex Murray.
Tell us a bit about yourself:
I am a graduate in Real Estate Management from Oxford Brookes University. I loved being a student but am now excited to get stuck into the working world and am currently looking for a full time role.
How have you found your first week at KLM?
It has been great! I am sitting on the agency and investment team and have had the opportunity to work on loads of exciting projects already; from zoning to valuations and goads. I think because KLM is a smaller agency than some of the other firms I have interned at, there are more opportunities for me and also the partners are a lot more hands-on.
What do you think of the retail market in London?
London is a great place to work and live in for property. You are really are at the cutting edge of all the latest trends. As a London specialist agency KLM is also a great place to be – I love our West End location as we are right in the heart of one of the most dynamic retail centres in the world.
Which other cities do you like shopping in?
Other than London, it would have to be New York.
And where do you like to shop?
Selfridges is great for its size and convenience. It also carries some great international brands. I don’t like spending hours trawling the shops, so when I do go shopping it has to be quick and simple. To be honest I prefer to shop online, ASOS is great, but I also like Top Man and Ralph Lauren.
What do you think about the future of retail?
It is all about online shopping. The ones to watch are retailers and brands that offer the best customer experience both physically and digitally.
