Sotheby's International Realty News: Sotheby's Brand Expands Presence in Mauritius

MauritiusThe Sothebys network is truly remarkable and continues to grow at a miraculous rate having just announced that Espral International Ltd, a land and property development company in Mauritius will now do business as Mauritius Sotheby's International Realty.

The firm is represented by Gilbert Espitalier- Noel as CEO and managed byDiane Watkins and Timo Geldenhuys who will nowserve the high-end real estate market throughout Mauritius.

Our expansion into Mauritius continues our commitment to providing access to the Sothebys International Realty networks exclusive real estate services in key countries around the world, said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sothebys International Realty Affiliates LLC. Mauritius is a beautiful island nation in the Indian Ocean off the southeast coast of the African continent. Known for its blue seas, white sandy beaches and luxury hotels, the island is also home to significant luxury real estate offering a truly unique lifestyle. We are proud to have this team of professionals represent us in this fine market.

According to Geldenhuys, Mauritius is a relatively small market with a very distinct separation between local and international buyers. International buyers are only allowed to purchase in dedicated government approved developments and hence the local market prices are not inflated by international investment, he said. Cultural diversity within the local market demands the abilities of a skilled agent.

We boast a young and dynamic team, driven by passion and excellence, with a culture that favors communication and discussion, said Watkins. We have an in-depth knowledge of the local market and our products. We believe the client always comes first and we go the extra mile to assist in finding the best fit for their needs. Now with the support of the Sothebys International Realty brand we can bring our extraordinary properties to the far-reaching corners of the world.

Here at Gibson Sothebys International Realty we would like to congratulate Gilbert Espitalier- Noel, histeam, and of course the Sothebys brand for this significant occasion. Our network continues to grow and the lengths to which we can see our influence is becoming increasingly broader and more impressive. Ourworldwide network now has a presence of more than16,500dedicated, experienced real estate sales associates within roughly 760 offices in 60countries and territories.
