I really don't see the point. Had you said £5m, Hampshire, then yes, fine - on the basis that you were partner in a top law firm and had more money than time for househunting across a large swathe of the country.
However... what do you really think a property finder would do for you that you cannot do yourself on the 'net? There are currently 41 two-bed flats between 300,000 and 420,000 in SE1 that are up for sale on findaproperty.com (although some of them are listed with two agents, so it may be fewer than that). There's even one in Metro Central Heights with Field & Sons. The new development on Willow Walk
being sold by Frank Harris looks *very* good value indeed at a mere £400 per square foot - giving you a three bed flat for your budget. It's off plan, but due for completion very soon.
I hereby offer you my services at house buying. And yes, I have indeed managed to flog my house.
