Firm Joins Global Real Estate Market with Offices in City’s West End
Houston, TX – John Daugherty, Realtors, is pleased to announce the opening of a marketing office in London, England in partnership with Mayfair International Realty. Located in the heart of London’s prestigious West End, the office will serve as a gateway for Europe’s real estate needs in Houston.
“We are the first residential brokers in Houston to do this,” said John A. Daugherty, Jr. “Over the past few years we have seen more buyers than ever from Europe and from the UK in particular. “We consider opening an office in London as an essential move to guarantee that our clients’ homes reach the widest possible market.
Mayfair International Realty, headed by Nick Churton and Annette Reeve, will market John Daugherty, Realtors’ Houston properties in the UK and the continental European media.
“We are working in a global real estate community with buyers not only crossing state boundaries, but International ones also,” said Daugherty.
John Daugherty, Realtors’ clients will find that the marketing of their homes receive a clear benefit from exposure to the widest market. And, London based buyers will also be able to visit the office and discuss buying a home in Texas. Churton said the move is paying off. “It is a positive move that has already brought significant success. The firm’s clients love the added coverage their homes receive and buyers love the easy access they have to the Houston market,” he said.
“More and more Europeans are being drawn to the Houston area for the very reasons the area has become so popular with those from within the US,” added Churton. He said as well as being a major business hub, the Internationally recognized Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, and home for so many international corporate companies, the reliable climate, superb facilities and high standard of real estate make the Houston area a key target destination for home and investment buyers.
“I like to think that my company goes the extra mile for its clients. I am delighted to say that now we are going an extra 4,845 miles to London and opening the doorway to Europe and beyond,” added Daugherty.
