Abercrombie & Kent Launches A&K International Estates
Specialist real estate agency for luxury residential properties around the world
Abercrombie & Kent, the world’s leading luxury travel company, is delighted to announce the launch Abercrombie & Kent International Estates to market and sell exclusive residential properties around the world, including private homes and resort residences.
A&K International Estates will leverage Abercrombie & Kent’s brand, service, reputation and global connections to seek out and market unique and special properties. The focus will be on personalized service, and for that reason, the company intends to only market a select number of residential properties and developments.
“I am hugely excited to be entering the real estate industry with a new approach built around personalised service,” explains Geoffrey Kent, founder, chairman and CEO. “Many of our past villa clients have contacted us for help in buying property. We believe there are many synergies between luxury travel and high-end second home ownership.”
With 50 offices and more than 2,200 employees in 26 countries, Abercrombie & Kent is ideally placed to market unique and inspiring second homes to its discerning clientele of frequent international travellers.
Robert Green has been appointed General Manager of A&K International Estates. He has significant real estate experience, as Director of Sales and Marketing for Six Senses Private Residences, and Director at Cluttons Resorts, responsible for sales and marketing of luxury resort developments.
“Demand at the top end of the market remains strong,” says Robert Green, “and with a dynamic and fresh approach to marketing, A&K International Estates will deliver first class real estate services to our existing client base and prospects. We will also be reaching out to buyers in emerging markets such as India, China and Brazil, which show a growing appetite for lifestyle products such as high-end second homes.”
The company expects its buyers to be international, concentrated in A&K’s primary source markets, the U.S., U.K. and Australia, and regions where demand for luxury property is high. This includes Monaco, where A&K is opening an office this year, and India and China, where A&K has an established network of local offices.
