Abercrombie & Kent launches international real estate business

Friday, 28 September 2012
A leading luxury travel company has launched a specialist real estate agency for luxury residential properties around the world.

Abercrombie & Kent said that its new venture, Abercrombie & Kent International Estates, will market and sell exclusive residential properties from around the world, including private homes and resort residences.

The business will focus on service, and for that reason it intends to only market a select number of unique residential properties and developments from around the world.

With over 250,000 high net worth clients on A&K’s database, 50 offices and over 2,200 employees in 26 countries, A&K International Estates believes it is ideally placed to market directly to buyers in search of unique and inspiring second homes.

The company expects its buyers to be international, especially from A&K’s core markets, the UK, USA and Australia and other key territories where demand for luxury property is high, such as Monaco, where A&K is opening an office this year, and India and China where A&K has existing offices.

‘I am hugely excited to be entering the real estate industry with a whole new approach based on integrity and personalised service. A&K provides the perfect platform to market luxury properties to discerning individuals worldwide,’ said Geoffrey Kent, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of A&K.

‘There are many synergies between luxury travel and high end second home ownership and this expansion has been on our agenda for a number of years, so I’m delighted to make it a reality,’ he added.

Robert Green has been appointed general manager of A&K International Estates and has significant real estate experience, most recently as director of sales and marketing for Six Senses Private Residences and prior to that as director at Cluttons Resorts, responsible for sales and marketing of luxury resort developments.

‘Demand at the top end of the market remains strong and with our dynamic and fresh approach to marketing, A&K International Estates will deliver first class real estate services to our existing and new clientele, including buyers from emerging markets such as India, China and Brazil, all of which show a growing appetite for lifestyle products such as high end second homes,’ Green said.
