Savills has boosted its London residential team with the appointment of Marsh & Parsons founder Liza-Jane Kelly.

Liza-Jane Kelly Savills

Kelly will head up the prime core market sales team at Savills. She brings 20 years’ estate agency experience in the capital, having co-founded Marsh & Parsons in 2005 and served as sales director and equity partner until 2017.

She left Marsh & Parsons last May to “pursue other career opportunities”. Kelly started her career with Ireland’s largest estate agent, Sherry Fitzgerald, which subsequently backed Peter Rollings’ purchase of Marsh & Parsons.

In her new role at Savills she will be working with and evolving existing teams, concentrating on core prime markets across 35 London offices.  

Head of global residential, Justin Marking, said: “It’s an exciting appointment and great to have Liza-Jane join us; she’ll be a real asset to our London business as we continue our strategic push into the wider markets across London.”
