Lodha UK engaged Sebastian to assist with the set-up of its hospitality division for our first two London projects, Lincoln Square and No. 1 Grosvenor Square. Sebastian’s experience and skills in service definition, budgeting and leasehold management allowed us to design an exemplary service offering within a highly competitive service charge schedule for both projects. His plan reviews and back of house design advice have benefitted the residents’ hospitality experience and positively impacted staff satisfaction as well. In conceiving a luxury service experience, both projects can provide seamless 5-star residential service to our customers. We thank him for his services and recommend him for his professionalism and expertise.

I worked with Sebastian during 2017/ 2018 on the marketing and managing of a super luxury residential development in Belgravia, London. This involved establishing a luxury marketing suite for the development of some 10,000 sq ft and the ongoing management of the suite, defining a 5 star hospitality operation and standard for residential operations including wellness, security and concierge services. Sebastian also negotiated and set up the full property management agreement for the development. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Sebastian and can confirm he is very professional and competent in his field of expertise.David Robinson, Development Director Wainbridge Ltd.
