Our well-trained sales negotiators are on-hand across London to help you

Sales success in India

Overseas trips to visit our clients are a regular part of the diary for myself and fellow Benham & Reeves directors Anita Mehra and Vidhur Mehra. This autumn has seen a particularly busy schedule, so far involving visits to Mumbai, Bangalore and Nairobi. Anita and I will also be visiting Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong in November.

Recent property investment events in India

I have just returned from India, where together with our Mumbai staff and a team from Berkeley Homes we hosted a property networking event with a financial data consultancy in Bangalore. We then hosted a further event in Mumbai with Porsche India. Across these two events we met 107 attendees and received a lot of interest from Indian investors interested in hearing first hand, more about the potential of the London property market. We were then joined by our Managing Director, Anita Mehra, for the World Property Investment Show where we exhibited jointly with Berkeley Homes and were delighted to win the award for Best Real Estate Agent.The show was a great success with some of our clients coming out to show their support too. So what was the feedback we received about London property investment? Interest in the London property market is in its early stages but clearly growing and this positive attitude was evident as we discussed the current market. Following our visit, a number of investors have already booked trips to London to view residential developments with our new homes team. Most Indian buyers are investing for the long-term and favour particular areas of London, so the Brexit situation is of little concern so the outlook for them is a positive one.

Kenyan investors

Our Finance Director Vidhur Mehra, is as I write, in Nairobi, Kenya, alongside a team from Berkeley Homes. Together, they are meeting with potential investors who have responded well to our marketing efforts and are showing particular interest in areas being regenerated on the fringes of central London. Increasingly, these new neighbourhoods offer good-value in a shift away from prime central London.
