Nina Zeilerbauer


Nina graduated from Oxford Brookes in 2000, and subsequently spent five years in a busy and demanding technology focused recruitment role. She wanted to combine this knowledge with her love of architecture and property and joined Macdonald and Company in 2005, where she rapidly rose to Director level within the General Practice team. Working with a client on a successful project, or finding someone their perfect role provides her with an enormous sense of satisfaction; and co-founding Madison Berkeley has enabled her to bring all of her past experiences together to offer the market distinctive and very tailored consultancy services. She is a proud Londoner, loving its vibrancy and history, but also has a life-long passion for the great outdoors and adventurous travel.

Clare Coe


Clare has been interested in property since an early age with careers in real estate running in the family. Consequently she joined The University of Reading to study Land Management (now Real Estate). She then joined Strutt & Parker as a Graduate and it’s here that she learnt she had a genuine enthusiasm for people and property. Clare has a professional, personable and positive approach to her work and has a true passion for what she does which has contributed to the motivation of co-founding Madison Berkeley. In particular Clare enjoys establishing long term relationships and getting to know candidates and clients well which is a key to her success. When she is not in the office Clare enjoys horse riding, West Ham and spending time in Portugal.
