Head of Operations
CORRINA PINSENT runs daily operations within our London headquarters. Born in Hampshire, UK, Corrina moved to Vermont with her family at the tender age of 3. A business graduate of the University of Connecticut, she’s since worked and lived in San Diego, Sydney, and most recently, London.
Before London Relocation, Corrina worked in operations and sales for Aya Healthcare, Inghams Skis, and Canadian Affair. She’s also volunteered for a number of charitable organisations, including Habitat for Humanity, Volunthai (as a English teacher in rural Thailand),
Corrina says, “my favourite part of the job is talking to people who want to move to London. If I could tell them one thing, it’s that this is an adventure — be excited! Focus on the exciting part (I know it’s hard sometimes) and the rest will fall into place.”
FUN FACT: at the Greek sea turtle rehabilitation centre, Corrina lost a small piece of her thumb to a very cranky sea turtle!
Head of Search
Bath, UK-native ANNIKA SHARP heads up Property Search for London Relocation. Having worked as an estate agent in North London for several years, she knows the agent’s side of the process, as well as tricks of the trade to create favorable opportunities for London Relocation’s clients.
Prior to her career at London Relocation and as an estate agent, Annika spent several years abroad working for Royal Caribbean Cruises as an Explorations/Excursions Manager across Europe and the Caribbean. An avid swimmer and diver, Annika has even scuba dived under the world’s largest cruise ship to check for hull damage.
Annika says, “my favourite part of the job is helping people with such a difficult task as trying to navigate the London property market. I love talking to people on their Needs Assessment call and really getting all the details of what they are looking for, plus educating them on the market. I also love that feeling when a client is really happy that I secured them their favourite flat.”
“My single most important tip for clients is to factor in your commute. You do it every day and while you might not mind an extra 10-minute walk to a high street, an extra 10 minutes on your commute can mean a lot.”
FUN FACT: Annika won a belly flop competition in Florida where she worked at a swim school — off a 3-metre diving board! (*ouch*)
Founder & CEO
AJ GALLO is a native of Tucson, Arizona and has spent the bulk of his postgraduate life traveling and working abroad. Having studied and lived in Italy and France for brief terms, Anthony has been a resident of England now for over a decade.
His background in sales and real estate found the perfect outlet when he created London Relocation in 2002., a business drawing from his property and negotiation expertise to focus on the people side of the industry, where Anthony otherwise perceived a void in the local lettings market.
His successful efforts in keeping London Relocation’s personable and straight-shooting, efficient and innovative, have been recognized by Re:locate Magazine, which awarded him the 2010/11 Rising Star in Relocation award.

Want to know about London Relocation?
The company was built by constantly learning what the customer needs, not paying attention to what old brick and mortars had been doing in relocation. Why stray from the tried and tested? Because large global relocation companies don’t focus on the individual. Our new property search portal gives you unlimited access to all properties through all agents in London. Browse properties, choose the ones you love and we’ll do the rest.
It really is that simple.
About London Relocation: Settling in London in 2001, by way of the US, Europe and a brief jaunt to South America, London Relocation’s founder AJ Gallo kept on getting phone calls from fellow travelers and expats asking, “could you help me find a flat in London?”
From his own relocation experiences, AJ understood that the challenge was never to try to fit a person into a new life and home, but rather to find out as much as possible about the individual and ensure that a new home, new job, and new life in London met the expectations and requirements exactly.
Every member of the team has been chosen by AJ for their attention to detail, personal experience with global relocation, their innovation, perfectionism and 24/7 commitment to discretion and client service.
We are a team comprised of expats with skills and talents born from our extensive experience and the belief that people deserve to be treated as individuals. Some say it’s naïve, but we say that’s how we wish we were treated when me made the decision to move overseas; it’s how we would like to be treated as customers. When we talk about London Relocation, we make sure the focus os on what we do for you!
