The International Premier Properties Team of Keller Williams Realty, Inc., the fourth largest real estate brokerage in North America, is pressing forward with plans to support luxury real estate marketing and sales in the U.S. and in premium global markets, including Mexico, Central America, Europe, and in areas of the Middle East.
Formed only two and one-half years ago, the International Premier Properties Team currently has access to $2 billion (U.S.) of high-end luxury real estate for sale in premium international markets. In addition to the U.S., the International Premier Properties Team is active in the premium coastal and inland areas of Mexico, including Los Cabos, Punta Mita, Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa, Acapulco, Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Merida, Campeche, San Miguel de Allende, Irapuato, Leon, and Morelia; in Belize and Costa Rica; in the premier areas of Spain, including the Costa del Sol, Andalusia, and the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Majorca, and Minorca), in the premier areas of the South of France, including Provence and the Cote d' Azur, and in selected areas of the Middle East.
Bill Gottfried, and his Wife, Danielle Gottfried, are the Founders and Principals of the International Premier Properties Team. Bill Gottfried states, "developing international real estate was a natural for us given our past 30 years of international oil and gas, energy, and finance industry experience, particularly in the Middle East, Europe, and Russia, which is also a target market for us". "Danielle and I have been real estate investors for many years and we see an excellent opportunity to develop the global luxury real estate market from Houston, which is increasingly becoming a major hub for international real estate transactions". Bill Gottfried's professional career began in the Middle East where he served as a Supply Officer for the U.S. Navy responsible for petroleum inspection and tanker scheduling in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iran, and Bahrain.
The International Premier Properties Team is aligned with leading real estate developers and brokerage firms in the markets it serves and the Team's strategy is to provide high quality and professional marketing and sales expertise to its international clientele. The Team's Principals are active with the National Association of Realtors, the Texas Association of Realtors, and the Houston Association of Realtors with their respective international activities.
