Russell Quirk, founder and CEO of, said: “It’s evident that the forthcoming arrival of the Crossrail development is already having a notable impact on the areas due to benefit.

“As the primary mode of traversing the capital, the ongoing improvements in rail links are continuously changing the London property landscape, in terms of which areas are the most in demand among UK buyers,” he said.
