Posted by VJ Batkeviciute — April 8, 2015
LONDON, UK - Harrods Estates has appointed Nicholas Shaw to head up its new office on Kensington Church Street. The leading prime London estate agent has announced plans to expand the real estate arm of the Harrods department store with a fourth office in Kensington, where it has been operating for over 20 years.
Nicholas joined Harrods Estates in 2010 as a Senior Sales Negotiator and has worked his way up to Sales Manager at the company, having previously worked for Moretons in Westminster and Chard in Notting Hill and Kensington.
Nicholas commented, "I am delighted to have been appointed to head up the new office on Kensington Church Street. As a local resident, I know and love the area, which is popular with families, professionals and those seeking to be near the range of excellent UK and international schools, particularly the British, French and Americans. We have operated in Kensington for a long time, so it is fantastic to have a stronger presence there and enable those from the local area to pop in and meet the experienced friendly team.”
The 1,272 sq. ft. office will incorporate sales, letting and acquisition of Kensington’s finest properties, along with asset management, property management and new development services. Supported by a highly experienced team of eight staff, the office is set to launch on 29th April 2015, the fourth to open by the leading estate agent.
Shirley Humphrey, Director at Harrods Estates commented: “Nicholas’ years of experience as an estate agent and local knowledge made him the perfect choice to head up the new office on Kensington Church Street. This new office opening forms an integral part of the Harrods Estates expansion plan to open further offices in prime London locations over the next five years.”
“Despite the slow down in super prime purchases in the first few months of the year, Kensington, Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Belgravia will continue to draw in the high net worth individual looking for a luxury home in central London. The shortage of stock will also continue to play a crucial role in the demand for property in these locations.”
Supported by the strength of the Harrods brand, Harrods Estates has successfully developed strong brand awareness in key international markets, predominately Russia, the Middle East and Asia with the result that international clients now account for 89 per cent of sales and lettings. In addition to the experienced professionals on the Russian and Middle Eastern desks, Harrods Estates is able to call upon the skills of the interpreters from all over the world who are on hand in Harrods.
