However, his background is far more humble having grown up in local authority housing in Maida Vale.

Daggers’ kitchen designer father and his stay-at-home mother lived in a 600-square-foot flat.

Speaking to Tatler, he said: “There were lots of kids in the high-rises and these flats. 

“We would play football ‘til the sun went down and our mums came out and said, ‘Dinner’s ready.’ 

“Loads of kids from different races, different backgrounds. That was my life.”

He was then admitted to a local private school free of charge, spending his days with children who got driven home in a Mercedes, and his nights at a youth club for boys.

The Arsenal fan said the experience made him socially and culturally intelligent, adding it was “a rude awakening”.

He added: “Some kids either didn’t have parents or had one parent. They were dealing drugs, stealing and having a tough life.”

As a centre midfielder, he played semi-professional football at Hayes Town, which was a stepping stone to larger clubs. 

However, his career was derailed at age 17 due to a collarbone fracture. 

This setback led him to the real estate industry, where he sold his first property for £110,000 nearby in 1997.

The real estate tycoon won a Property Adviser of the Year award in 2019 from the wealth management magazine Spear’s.

Daggers established DDRE Global in 2020 and he now runs his combined estate agency and content production business from two floors of a co-working space in Marylebone.

“We’re moving the industry forward,” Daggers told the Evening Standard. “If you ask most people if they’ve had a good experience with estate agents they’ll say no. I want to have a positive impact on the industry.
