Marc von Grundherr, Lettings Director
Marc invested in his first property at the age of twenty. He continued to invest during his career in the City, when he worked across Europe and in Asia.
He decided to mix business and pleasure by joining Benham and Reeves twenty years ago. His banking background gave him a unique perspective into property investment from a financial and logistical perspective, as has his personal history of investing in properties from London to Malaysia and Brazil. Marc joined the board in 2001 and has developed close relationships with investors in London, the Middle East and Asia. He believes only in giving advice that he would take himself, and prides himself in the long-term relationships he has developed with so many clients around the world. He lives in Wimbledon Village with his wife and two children.
