Luxury Real Estate today announced that it is expanding its global network by launching operations in China. Mr. Wang Cong of Shanghai has been appointed as Luxury Real Estate’s Director for China. Mr. Cong has a decade of experience in the real estate market and has been an influential member of the business elite in China and throughout Asia. His most recent real estate endeavor, Sheshan Golf Club, was host to Tiger Woods for the HSBC golf tournament in Shanghai last month. Sheshan Golf Club has joined the Luxury Real Estate network and is listing luxury villas on the 18-hole international golf course with an average listing price of 2.5 million.
John Brian Losh, CEO/Publisher of Luxury Real Estate and LuxuryRealEstate.com says, “I am thrilled to have Mr. Wang Cong represent us in China. He has been extremely well received by our 770 plus members as he represents an emerging market where many of our luxury brokers are seeing increasing activity.”
Luxury Real Estate member, Ruth Chizzini of Julia B. Fee Real Estate in Westchester, NY just returned from a two week tour through China and reported an immensely strong real estate market. “There is so much money flowing in China,” says Chizzini. “Shanghai is Manhattan! Beijing, Hong Kong, even Singapore are all aglow with bustling business.” Luxury Real Estate’s appointment comes at a time when western investors are moving their funds into China at a fierce pace. US investment alone reached over 3.5 billion for 2005. ”I have no doubt that the timing of Mr. Cong’s appointment couldn’t be better,” declared Losh.
