A professional confessional like no other, The Secret Agent plunges us into the face-paced, high-stakes and glamorous world of London’s super-prime property business.

Spanning the course of a year, Max – the alias of London’s most exclusive property agent – guides us through the unimaginable highs and bank-breaking lows of his business, where houses sell for up to £170 million and discretion is key.

With a client list that includes a Booker Prize winner, several Oscar nominees, a stadium-filling musician, an HRH, two national treasures, a supermodel, a Duke, a Duchess, and untold FTSE board members and titans of business, there is never a dull moment for Max and his team – John, Damien and Nicola – as they negotiate both huge property deals in the office, and their complex personal lives outside of it.

Offering an insider’s view into the hidden machinations of this exclusive market, The Secret Agent sees Max attempt to balance his team, his own needs and, of course, the books against his ever-demanding clients, as he showcases the good, the bad, and the downright bizarre nature of the real-estate market of the super-rich.
