Set up in affiliation with New Delhi’s Himmat & Rohini Singh LLP, Christie’s aims to capture the renewed interest in India’s luxury real estate market
February 4, 2021: While the pandemic has created havoc in almost every industry in the world, including real estate, Christie’s International Real Estate announces its expansion into India through an affiliation with Delhi-based real estate firm, Himmat & Rohini Singh LLP.
As the luxury real estate market experiences a resurgence the world over, this collaboration will serve connoisseurs of high-end homes, estates and villas in India.
With the maturing of the Indian real estate market, discerning buyers and sellers of luxury properties are increasingly looking for the highest levels of professional and personalized services for their property transactions. And as high net worth Indians seek second-home opportunities not only within the country but throughout the world, the company can now assist with their luxury real estate needs by leveraging the global network of Christie’s International Real Estate specialists.
Helena De Forton, director of regional operations for Europe, Middle East, Russia, India and Africa of Christie’s International Real Estate, said: “The business ethos of Himmat Singh and Rohini Chaudhri Singh are perfectly aligned with Christie’s values, making them the obvious choice to be invited to our network. They are sophisticated and expert advisors to their clients, understanding the need for discretion while fostering these important and on-going personal relationships. Their long-standing respect in the region’s real estate market makes them the ideal advisors for buyers and sellers of luxury real estate in the region.”
The luxury real estate market has grown substantially in India after the initial impact of the pandemic as buyers look for larger, more versatile spaces in which they can effectively combine their professional and personal lives as part of the growing work from home culture. The pandemic has also given rise to an added focus on the element of financial security of owning a home versus renting, thereby converting long time renters into buyers. These factors combined with regulatory benefits among others, have resulted in a renewed interest in the luxury real estate market in India.
