Lessons from Las Vegas

Visiting new places can be an exciting experience for some people. However, it can be an anxious time for others, whether that’s simply going away to an unfamiliar holiday destination or delving into relocating to a new area. Therefore, finding out more about any new destination is a must if you want to make the most of what it has to offer! Recently a few of the team from Anthony Pepe took a trip to vibrant Las Vegas, famous for its fast-paced casinos and bright lights, it’s a city you could easily get lost in. Fortunately for our team, they were fully prepared! Just like when you move to a new area, exploring a new city means you have to quickly suss out what’s what and do your research before you take the plunge. But how do you do this?

Area Guides

If you were visiting a new holiday destination like Las Vegas for the very first time, you probably wouldn’t just pack your bags and go, hoping for the best. You would be keen to find out about all of the best places to visit before you even touch down, including the top attractions, the best local restaurants and the nearest casino, which would allow you to make the most of your time there. The same goes for when you are planning to move to a new area. After all, you wouldn’t want to relocate only to discover that the neighbourhood isn’t right for you because the nearest park isn’t quite near enough!

A great way to learn the key facts about a new neighbourhood is to use our area guides as your first port of call. The team at Anthony Pepe’s have done the research for you, providing you with all of the details you might want to know about a new area in North London, from local amenities to their favourite places to wine and dine. You can explore our area guides for yourself here!

Local Knowledge

They say that nobody knows an area as well as the locals, but even a small amount of local knowledge can make a brand new place feel less daunting. Some members of the Anthony Pepe team, like Michael Komdromos, had been to Las Vegas before. Therefore, he was able to share his personal experience and advice with the team to plan ahead for their adventure. A little local knowledge went a long way, as the team was well-prepared for the bright lights of the big city and they knew exactly what they wanted to see and where they wanted to go. Without these snippets of insider knowledge, there was a chance that some of the team could have ended up lost in Las Vegas!

When it comes to relocating to a new area, don’t underestimate the power of local knowledge. You can rely on locals to share their tips with you just like you would in a new holiday destination. Our team in North London are all local residents who have their own experiences and knowledge gleaned from living in North London’s communities. Feel free to come into your local branch to ask questions about their favourite spots, to find out what it is like to live in a specific neighbourhood, or to discover the hidden gems that only a local could know.


A rich source of information about an area could be closer than you think. When on holiday, you often find yourselves mingling with other tourists and sharing tips and stories about your travels. After all, other people in the same situation as you are easy to relate to. The same could be said about moving to a new neighbourhood. Once you’ve moved, be sure to talk to your neighbours who can help you to explore the area as well as give you further tips and tricks from the insiders. Just remember, they were once in the same situation as you and they probably discovered the area’s best secrets from their neighbours too.


The team from Anthony Pepe certainly made the most of their trip to Las Vegas by planning ahead with some insider knowledge. As the saying goes, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”… but this certainly isn’t true for North London. There are many ways to find out what an area is truly like, so if you’re considering relocating to North London, visit your local Anthony Pepe branch to find the perfect place to call your home.
