Thursday, 28 April 2011 00:00
Elite Havens, Bali’s leading real estate agency, recently entered a strategic associate partnership with Knight Frank and now has a truly global reach.
Not only does the associate partnership confirm Elite Havens’ reputation for professionalism, it also facilitates potential clients from every major country of the world to purchase a holiday or investment property in one of the most exciting real estate markets in the world.
Knight Frank’s global network encompasses 209 offices in 47 countries across six continents. More than 6,840 professionals handle over US$755 billion worth of commercial, agricultural and residential property annually, advising clients ranging from individual owners and buyers to major developers, investors and corporate tenants.
Elite Havens partner Matthew Georgeson says the association benefits Bali-based vendors, as well as those seeking to buy on the holiday island.
“We represent most of the island’s truly desirable villas,” he explains, “and now through Knight Frank, we can put those properties in front of discerning buyers in every major city of the world.”
“In fact we expect to announce the sale of two of Bali’s most exclusive private villas to the international market in the next few weeks. Properties of this calibre are not traded frequently so we expect strong global interest when the campaigns are launched,” said Mr Georgeson.
Georgeson sees the Knight Frank relationship as giving both purchasers and vendors a very high level of trust in the properties represented by Elite Havens in association with Knight Frank.
“Both purchasers and vendors get peace-of-mind knowing that they are dealing with an organization with an established track record and a reputation for professionalism and reliability.”
Knight Frank’s Head of Residential based in London, Patrick Ramsay, is delighted that Elite Havens have joined the Knight Frank Global Team as their associate office in Bali.
“Their involvement will make a considerable contribution to our Asian business,” says Mr Ramsay.
“Our aim is to develop a network linking the top international locations around the world and working with the best professional firms, to ensure our clients have access to the best properties and receive an outstanding service wherever they go.”
Willson Kalip, Head of Knight Frank Indonesia, comments:
“There are strong synergies between developers and purchasers within Bali and Jakarta. Bali is an attractive real estate market and much of the larger scale development conceptualization and funding originates from Jakarta; it’s a driving force. Given the growth in Bali real estate in recent years, it was important for us to expand our team in Bali. We researched the market and came to the conclusion that Elite Havens were the best fit for us. Not only are they reputable, they offer an established and experienced sales force as well as a strong catalogue of luxury villas and land.”
Elite Havens in association with Knight Frank has a thorough knowledge of the property market in Bali, it can assist buyers through the purchase process, including putting them in touch with third-party legal, taxation, licensing and structural experts, to ensure a safe and successful conclusion.
