Austin, Texas (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Turnquist Partners Realtors, Inc. (“Turnquist Partners”), Austin’s leading real estate brokerage, has joined with the UK’s Mayfair International Realty, one of the foremost groups of luxury real estate agents in the United Kingdom, to market properties to the European investor. Turnquist Partners has responded to the increased traffic of overseas buyers attracted to living in the United States by opening an office in London.
The Mayfair International Realty network is composed of over 100 of the finest British brokerages and more than 300 offices throughout the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. London based Mayfair International Realty is synonymous with quality, integrity, experience and customer satisfaction. One Mayfair broker was established in 1750, more than a quarter of a century before the Declaration of Independence.
Rather than waiting for buyers to come to them, Turnquist Partners has decided to go to the buyers instead. 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 Austin market.
“We consider being part of Mayfair International Realty as an essential move to guarantee that our clients’ properties reach the widest possible market,” says Michele Turnquist, principal broker of Turnquist Partners. “We are now working in a global real estate village. The international real estate investor is a reality. I am delighted to say that now, as part of Mayfair International Realty, we are going an extra 4925 miles and expanding the gateway to Europe for our valued clients as well as bringing the global investor to our marketplace.”
The nationalities of the Turnquist Partners Realtors’ buyers read like a world atlas. The strength of the pound and euro against the dollar means the US is a fantastic investment for European buyers.
“We are the first brokers in Austin to do this,” says Michele Turnquist. “Over the past few years we have seen more buyers than ever from Europe and from the UK in particular. A number so significant it is affecting the way we market our clients’ homes.”
