Off-Plan & New Build Property Executive Hired

Cintia Areias Azevedo

Cintia just joined the Castlereach team as New Build + Off-Plan Property Executive. Having worked within the property industry for a number of years since graduating from university and being accredited in Real Estate Management (RICS Accredited), Cintia can’t wait to help Castlereach buy new build and off-plan property from property developers.

Brett Alegre-Wood, Chairman of Castlereach comments “An enthusiastic and responsible team member, Cintia works well under pressure and is equally capable on working on her own initiative. She loves meeting, engaging and interacting with property developers and is a great communicator at all levels being patient, helpful, honest and able to respect confidentiality.”

If you’re a residential property developer and want to drive your New Build and Off-Plan Property sales anywhere across England, we find buyers for those units.

Large project? Fantastic. We’re glad to hear it! We want to buy between 10 and 50 property units and regularly work as part of the team on developments of up to 5000 units, working with you to optimise pricing and generate demand for your properties.

Give me a call on on 020 7923 6115 or email  I’d be more than happy to help.

Live with Passion,

Brett Alegre-Wood

Asian exhibition sales

Asian Exhibitions are too Hit and Miss now!

We are hearing it all the time now “Asian Exhibitions are too Hit and Miss now! They are too costly and provide no certainty of sales!”

If you’re looking to market into the main Asian marketplaces you could be in for a hefty bill will little result.

The Asian exhibition market used to be a certainty and sales could almost be counted on as the UK was still in the grips of recession. However with Asian markets and investors becoming more cautious the certainty has waned.

Singapore has been hit particularly hard from the TDSR (Total Debt Service Ratio) which limits the amount of debt allowed on both Singapore and overseas property. Add to this the currency fluctuations and the uncertainty of the UK election and you can understand why things have been shaky.

Hong Kong (with its mainland Chinese investors) has also slowed in part due to the looming threat of interest rate increases and Chinese Government Anti-graft measures.

However despite all this the market remains strong and as always good property, priced well will sell.

The most important thing to note is that investors in Asia now know what to expect, many own multiple properties and they will very quickly pick up on potential problems with a development being marketed at exhibition.

So how do Castlereach ensure that you get the sales you want from your exhibition?

1. The answer is that we already have the buyers lined up, through our existing database of over 50,000 active investors.
2. Our dedicated telesales teams are already in relationship with those very investors who will be buying your property.
3. We continuously follow up and nurture well past the exhibition.

Whether you choose to use Castlereach for your exhibition or not we can piggyback either before or after your exhibition, securing off-market sales that won’t compete with your efforts.

Give the team a call on +44 207 923 5680 and we can explain in detail how we can help you get Guaranteed sales for your New Build Developments.
