Our Story

why we love what we do

When Ugo Arinzeh left America to begin a new life in the UK, she brought with her more than just a suitcase and memories of growing up on the east coast.

Packed in amongst the possessions that would define her new start was a unique combination of knowledge, skills, expertise and passion that would expand her real estate career to offer exceptional service tailored to each individual client.

Born in Nigeria and raised in the U.S., Ugo has now lived in London for more than 10 years – long enough to develop an unashamed love affair with her adopted city, but not so long that she doesn’t remember what it’s like to arrive in a country as a stranger and build a new and vibrant life from scratch.

Creating Onyx Property Team was a logical step, providing Ugo with the perfect opportunity to combine the experience and skills she had gained in an already successful real estate investment banking career along with a lifelong love of all things property and a desire to help buyers and sellers realise their dreams.

As a seasoned Londoner, she has developed an intimate relationship with the city she has fallen head over heels for – immersing herself in discovering the passion and soul  of its nooks and neighbourhoods as well as the charm that makes up its global appeal.

Ugo works with international buyers as well as London-based sellers and landlords. She combines her passion for property and warm personality with sharp negotiating skills learned at the cutting edge of corporate finance.

The result is a high level buying and selling experience designed to meet the individual needs of each client.

International buyers will benefit from working with a London-based partner who has a global perspective informed by a cosmopolitan and diverse background, personal experience of intercontinental relocation and unparalleled knowledge of the city.

Sellers benefit from uncompromising passion, market knowledge, tireless work ethic and strong negotiation skills.

Landlords will appreciate razor-sharp analytical skills and attention to detail from a partner who is herself an overseas landlord with an appreciation for the importance of having a property that is well looked after.

Ugo and the Onyx Property Team are committed to delivering exceptional levels of customer service to everyone they work with, whether in relation to property salespurchasemanagement or interior design.

Years of experience in closing real estate transactions and personally investing in property means that Ugo is perfectly positioned to deliver all your property needs.

And although our estate agency is based in North West London, we are in partnership with global estate agency Keller Williams, which boasts over 190,000 real estate experts operating in more than 40 countries,  Ugo and Onyx Property Team can leverage global connections to deliver a world-class service.
