The Team are close knit with a great range of individual specialised skills, local London property market knowledge and experience. But the overriding difference is that we all work cohesively in the best interests of everyone we take care of, sharing the core values we know our clients appreciate. Here’s where you can get to know us all a bit better.
Kiri, born and raised in North London, formed Excel as far back as 1993. Before that he gained a vast amount of experience in all aspects of buying, selling and managing residential property in North West and Central London whilst working for a leading independent agency from 1987.
Despite working in the industry for almost 35 years, Kiri remains as passionate as ever to lead from the front and drive Excel to be the property agency of choice in the residential high-end London market. Excel’s company values perfectly sum up Kiri’s ethos:
- Always be Learning
- Commit to Maximise Potential
- Strive for Excellence
Away from work, Kiri, who was a very keen sportsman in his younger days, enjoys exercise and keeping fit and prior to the coronavirus pandemic still played 5-a-side football on a regular basis. Apart from sport, Kiri’s family is everything to him. Being married for 35 years, with a grown-up family he loves spending time with, either dining out or taking on the role of barbecue head chef at the family home in Winchmore Hill, North London.
Having joined Excel in 2009, Adam is one of our most experience members of the Team and has built up valued relationships with many of our trusted clients. Adam is responsible for liaising with new and existing clients, to determine the best strategy to maximise the potential of their property investments. If you have a property to let or sell, or you need advice on how to attract the highest calibre tenants and increase your rental return, Adam is here to assist. Landlords can also rest assured that Adam is involved in managing the Excel Team throughout all aspects of the letting process for all properties, so you can have peace of mind that your investment is in safe hands at all times.
In his spare time, Adam is a keen runner, having raced in numerous 5k, 10k and half marathon events as well as more recently completing the Frankfurt Marathon. Life outside of work has changed recently for Adam though with the birth of his son in March 2021, so you’ll be more likely to see him pushing a pram on the streets at the moment rather than pushing himself to finish that training run!
Mao was born and raised in the Western part of Japan before coming to the UK 7 years ago after finishing University in Japan. Mao has developed the Japanese Desk here at Excel over the last few years and has become a valuable member of the Team, providing unrivalled customer service to our Japanese Tenants and of course our valued clients who rent their properties to them. Our Japanese Desk is on hand at all stages of a Japanese Tenant’s property journey, from the initial searches, viewings and offers, through to moving in, taking care of property management and compliance, to moving out and dealing with the deposit refund. Our clients with Japanese Tenants are well looked after in the knowledge that Mao is on hand to deal with all aspects of the lettings process.
In her free time, Mao enjoys travelling, dining out, cooking and yoga. Ever since she completed her yoga teacher training, Mao has been practising herself at home to balance her body and mind. She is also passionate about red wine and her favourite moment in the day is coming home to open a bottle from her selection after a hard day’s work.
The other member of our Japanese Desk, Mat, brings a huge amount of experience to Excel Property Services. Mat has built up a large network of clients over the years who trust him with sourcing suitable Japanese Corporate Tenants for their rental investments. Working closely with Mao, Mat is always on hand to go the extra mile for Tenants and Landlords alike. His main focus is on sourcing new properties suitable for Japanese Lettings, building relationships with Japanese Corporate Tenants and carrying out viewings, before passing things over to Mao.
Outside of work, Mat enjoys playing the piano with friends, specializing in modern jazz and bossa nova. He is also a skilled artist and is passionate about drawing cartoons, often keeping the office amused with his quirky sketches of the Team. Amongst other things, Mat loves cooking Japanese foods for himself and his wife and when the weather permits, his favourite past time is taking a well-earned sea fishing trip to Brighton with friends.
Born and raised in North West London, Ethan started his property journey at the age of 16 and has loved it ever since, developing his skills and experience across a range of residential and commercial roles.

Offering extensive local knowledge, excellent negotiation skills and a drive to provide the highest level of customer service, Ethan is always on hand to go above and beyond to secure the best possible Tenants at the optimum rental level.
Away from the office, Ethan enjoys spending quality time with his fiancé and 8-month-old son as well as catching up with family and friends. He has a passion for cars, watches and Arsenal FC; just don’t ask him how this season is going!
The newest addition to the Team here at Excel, Eman was born and raised in Hong Kong and moved to London last year. Her previous experience in teaching and customer service roles brings valuable skills to the Lettings Team, while her knowledge of the Hong Kong investor market will provide our clients in the Far East a dedicated point of contact for all their property needs. Working closely with Ethan, Eman is generally the first point of call for prospective Tenants when they approach Excel to start their property journey, so we are safe in the knowledge they will always receive the best possible first impression.
At home, Eman is a big fan of cooking and her perfect day always starts with a satisfying breakfast! Eman loves to challenge herself with different cuisines, whether it is Asian or Western food, they are all on her recipe list. Health and fitness are also a big part of Eman’s life and she loves to dedicate her spare time to working out and running.
Dino moved to Excel from another reputable North West London Letting Agent to head up our Tenancy Management department. For our managed Landlords, Dino is responsible for keeping them fully compliant throughout the Lettings process, arranging to keep safety certificates up to date, serving required documents and ensure all Lettings related legislation is adhered to. Tenants are introduced to Dino upon moving into the property and he is their first point of contact throughout the Tenancy, handling any maintenance and Tenancy related issues that may arise.
Outside of work, Dino enjoys travelling, football and media production. Exploring new places and playing football in the hot sun are his passions and, while currently these are not available due to Covid-19, he still spends two days a week Live Streaming, Sound Engineering and Video Editing for his Church, which he’s loved doing for the past 8 years.
