LONDON, UK - Leading prime central London estate agent, Harrods Estates, was delighted to launch its new office in Kensington yesterday evening, 30th April 2015. The glittering event was attended by 80 guests and well wishers from the local area along with Raine Countess Spencer, Ambassador for Harrods Estates, Michael Ward, Managing Director of the Harrods department store and Julian Cook, Managing Director of Harrods Estates.
Guests were greeted by the famous Harrods Green man and enjoyed champagne and canapés specially prepared by the Harrods banqueting team. Attendees also had the opportunity to have a ride in the Harrods horse and carriage, which drew attention from passing crowds and local residents.
Shirley Humphrey, Director at Harrods Estates commented: “We are delighted to officially open the new Kensington office which has been well received already by the local community. Many well wishers popped in to welcome us to Kensington Church Street, a real demonstration of community spirit. The launch event was an exciting way to open and celebrate our presence in an area, where we have been operating for over 20 years.”
With offices currently in Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Chelsea, the new office, situated on Kensington Church Street is part of the company’s expansion plans for the growth of the real estate arm of the famous Harrods department store.
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.
