Brad Lincoln, CEO, Best Group
"If there is anyone in the UK and International property arena more quoted in the press than Stuart I would be surprised. There is a reason for that. Stuart creates markets rather than just follows them and he is therefore rightly seen by clients, the trade and the press as one of the sector's leading innovators. Being respected as an innovator like Stuart means that he has to be completely in tune with what the client wants today but also in a Steve Jobs meets property type way he also has to be aware of what they will want tomorrow. Whenever OPP has needed high quality, in tune, comment and has gone to Stuart he has more than matched our Editors' expectations." November 22, 2011

"Stuart is one of the most astute property professionals within the industry. He has is able to sniff out an opportunity that many others would not have the foresight (or the intestinal fortitude) to seek out. In the meetings I've had with him, you can literally see his brain ticking over with ideas about how to best enhance his product and bring to market- he is on a non stop quest for perfection. This has enabled him to thrive where many others have fallen. We are delighted to be working with Stuart and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with him and Assetz." November 24, 2011
