Chestertons has appointed Maya Vershinina to head up lettings at its Hyde Park branch.
Vershinina (pictured) has previously worked at Marsh & Parsons and Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward.
Vershinina said: “Chestertons has one of the largest and most successful lettings departments in London and I am delighted to now be a part of that team and in a position to help grow the company’s market share.
“Having worked in a number of high value locations across London that have a similar market, I’m thrilled to be managing Chestertons’ Hyde Park branch at the height of the lettings season and overseen a spectacularly busy summer.
“We’re experiencing high demand from students and overseas tenants who are prepared to pay over the asking price to secure the property they want.
“Many of these are requesting video viewings and are prepared to offer without physically seeing the property.”
Katinka Hill, Central London regional lettings director at Chestertons, added: “With 12 years’ experience in the London lettings market covering several prime locations including Notting Hill, Holland Park and Chelsea, Maya has already proved to be a valuable addition to Chestertons.
“Despite a decline in transactions in some Prime Central London locations amid political uncertainty, the Hyde Park and Marylebone lettings market appears unaffected and Maya and her team are enjoying a busy market.”
