June 21, 2018 - Charleston, SC - Carolina One Real Estate Services, Charleston’s leading real estate full-service brokerage, has joined with the United Kingdom’s Mayfair International Realty to market Lowcountry properties to the European market.
The Mayfair International Realty network is composed of over 100 of the finest British brokerages with more than 300 offices throughout the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. London based Mayfair International Realty has become synonymous with quality, integrity, discretion and experience in international luxury real estate. Mayfair International is also known for stability - one Mayfair broker was established in 1750, more than a quarter of a century before the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
“We consider being part of Mayfair International Realty as an essential move to guarantee that our clients’ properties reach the widest possible market,” says Carolina One President, Michael Scarafile. “We are now working in a global real estate market where the international real estate investor is a reality. Our aim, working with Mayfair International Realty, is to bring the global investor to our Lowcountry marketplace.”
The nationalities of Carolina One Real Estate’s buyers read like a world atlas. “We are seeing more buyers than ever before attracted to the Charleston area from Europe, and particularly from the UK, as well as from other parts of the USA, Canada, Europe and Asia” said Scarafile.” “Of course, the storied history of the Lowcountry, it’s great climate, the stunning vacation opportunities and the comparatively well priced properties in Charleston bring the UK and Europeans to the area in the same way as the finance industry does to New York City. One only has to dine in any of our finest restaurants, to hear the number of English and European accents,” added Scarafile.
“The marketing of our clients’ properties will receive a clear benefit from this exposure to a global market. For over 50 years we’ve gone the extra mile for our valued clients. I’m delighted to say that now, as part of Mayfair International Realty, we’re going an extra 4000 miles and expanding the gateway to Europe for our clients,” continued Scarafile.
Scarafile added, “Carolina One Real Estate is aware that real estate is no longer a local only business; it’s local, national and international and we’re constantly looking for networks and affiliations that create an unmatched web of connections through which we market our listings. Mayfair International connects us with tens of thousands of American citizens living and/or working in the United Kingdom and continental Europe, many of whom routinely relocate back to the U.S.”
The Mayfair International network also enables Carolina One Real Estate to work with other leading real estate firms across North America. With Mayfair International members in key locations such as New York, Washington DC, Miami and Houston, Carolina One Real Estate will be able to work with buyers from these locations looking to invest in the Charleston area.
Also, of significance is the Mayfair internet site that offers exposure to the global market and uploads to other premier UK based websites. The highly prominent website (www.mayfairinternationalrealty.com) provides a worldwide portal for luxury properties. Carolina One Real Estate enjoys the unique benefit of being the only Charleston broker whose properties are uploaded to the property search site of Country Life (www.countrylife.co.uk). Country Life is regarded as the leading UK magazine for luxury real estate. Over the past one hundred years Country Life has been the finest place to advertise the very best country houses, estates and important town houses in the UK and Europe and, over the past few years, throughout the globe.
Carolina One Real Estate’s listings are also uploaded to the property search site of the Financial Times (www.ft.com). The Financial Times is arguably the most important financial print tool in that industry. It reaches high net worth individuals and their trusted advisors throughout the world.
Currently in its 54th year, Carolina One Real Estate Services is metro Charleston’s real estate market leader. In addition to a full-service Mortgage Division, the 13-office company features full-service departments specializing in Commercial Real Estate, Property and Casualty Insurance, New Homes Construction, Company Relocation, Residential Property Management, Beach and Vacation Rentals, Title Services and Property Maintenance.
