Founded in London in 1896, the Knight Frank that exists today comprises 14,000 members of staff, in 59 countries across 411 offices, one of which can be found on Mount Street in the West End. Having witnessed the property market go from local, to national, to international over the decades, they have followed wherever their clients need them to be, expanding to create a worldwide service. Looking after commercial and residential properties, their underlying philosophy is a people-centric one, aiming to create happy employees, which naturally leads to a top service for their clients.
Knight Frank can help you with buying and selling, development of new homes, investments, lettings, management of properties, valuations, and consultancy. They look after thousands of London properties to rent or buy at any one time, allowing you to see the best the city has to offer through one agency. Their portfolio covers mansions at exclusive addresses such as Kensington Gardens, Centre Point, and Regents Park, to more humble abodes, and a range of office and retail units to suit any size business.
Knight Frank has a legacy of some of the most important transactions in the UK, including the sale of Stonehenge in 1915, and advising on the site assembly of the BBC’s Broadcasting House. Today they continue to work on landmark projects, and were appointed to advise on the Olympic Village for the 2012 London games and the sale of the iconic Battersea Power Station.
Keeping with the times, the Knight Frank app is a useful accompaniment to the in-person service they offer, allowing you to browse and search the latest properties and create a shortlist of those that meet the requirements. They also create video brochures of some of their premium properties around the world in locations such as Australia, Fiji, Singapore, Dubai, and London, available on their YouTube channel to give you a virtual tour and help you to imagine your life in their homes.
