Over the last three decades, Chinese investors have relied on us as a trusted resource when looking to buy residential properties in London. Our range of services extends from our Shanghai office which forms a first point of contact, to our dynamic China Desk in London which ensures that all stages of the property purchase are smooth, discreet and transparent. Our Shanghai-based personnel regularly visit London in order to keep abreast with the most current property trends, topics and techniques.
With offices in China, Hong Kong SAR, India, Israel, Malaysia, Middle East, Pakistan, Qatar, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand and Turkey, Benham and Reeves has a reputation for excellence throughout the region. Chinese investors put a great emphasis on trusted relationships as they may not always get to view their target property. They require an estate agent that staffs its China desk with native speakers who can conduct complex negotiations in the relevant languages and see them through from property search to post-completion.
There are distinct advantages for Chinese investors when they work with us:

High professionalism throughout the process
Our experience with Benham & Reeves Hampstead was very pleasant. High professionalism throughout the process, a great valuation and viewing organisation, not to mention that it only took a couple of weeks to get an offer. Jeremy was extremely professional and helpful, so much so that we immediately recommended him to our neighbours.
Experienced and excellent to deal with
I felt it important to express my gratitude to Tom for all his hard work, assistance and understanding in achieving the completion of my property today. Tom is experienced in sales and an excellent person to deal with. He knows how to handle a situation. He is patient and understanding. Due to his coordination with solicitors and myself we were able to push a time limited conveyance through which had a deadline for tomorrow. A genuine asset to Benham & Reeves, Tom is a sheer pleasure to work with, thoroughly reliable and honest. I wish Tom all the success going forward and I hope to deal with him in the future, again.
Sale of my apartment in W1
Throughout the selling process of my apartment which through no fault of B & R was a quite complicated sale, I found the staff of B & R to be efficient, professional and attentive. I have no hesitation in recommending them both as letting agents and selling agents.
Outstanding service by Philip
Philip has been wonderful in our house hunting in London. He listened to our needs and had been so patient in finding that right one. The whole process took a year and he was never discouraged. Instead, he was always very accommodating and positive. Now, we have finally moved into our new place. We highly recommend Philip to anyone who is looking for their dream home. In fact, we have already referred some friends to him. Thank you Philip and we appreciate all your help!
Excellent and professional services
Philip provides professional services and advice on property acquisition. Very friendly and helpful.
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for providing me with an excellent service. You proactively sought out properties that met my investment criteria which led me to purchasing an ideal property. I appreciated your friendly and professional manner and felt I could really trust your judgement, which is something I did not feel with other estate agents. I would highly recommend using your company and will hopefully be purchasing another property through you soon.
A Satisfied Buyer!
I was happy with your service particularly in keeping the sale alive when the vendor was losing faith. My agent (Sofia) was invaluable in overcoming the various hurdles and concluding the sale successfully. Thank you from a satisfied buyer!
London is a truly global city, an international hub for business, education and culture. And this, in part, explains why the London property market remains resilient despite interest rate rises and cost-of-living issues. Many investors are cash buyers – over half the buyers investing in Zone 1 properties pay cash so they’re less impacted by wider economic uncertainty. They recognise the current situation is just another passing storm – and it will pass. So they’re quick to spot a buyi...
