Best Luxury Estate Agent 2021 Being based in the south means that residents benefit from great transport links into towns and cities, including London, where there are typically higher rates of employment and stronger salaries. Residents also have a huge area to choose from as their home. So many people now work from home and are not tied to the city or indeed larger towns within the surrounding counties, so they have the flexibility to move to more rural and/or cheaper locations. This has seen the property market in the area boom and present opportunities for a company such as Kai Carter. “The focus for buyers is on space, for home offices, playrooms, gardens, leisure facilities and entertaining,” explains Natalie, speaking of trends that have emerged over the last 18 months. “Multi-generational living has also increased significantly in popularity. “We are seeing a significant number of buyers looking for a country home, either instead of or as well as their London property. I’m seeing sellers moving as far as Devon with a view to commuting to London once or twice a week. With more flexible home working, this is now possible for a greater number of people. “We have so many beautiful places to choose to live in the south, it’s an absolute pleasure to share that vision and help families find the ideal home for the ‘new normal’.” Recently, Kai Carter was awarded the prestigious accolade of Best Luxury Estate Agent 2021 in the Southern Enterprise Awards – a well deserved title which is testament to the hard work and dedication of Natalie and the whole team. Regarding the future, Kai Carter has plans for expansion starting with the southern region. “We are now looking to grow and to provide an exceptional level of service to more homeowners who yearn for a strong, trusted relationship with the estate agent managing the sale of their biggest, or one of their biggest, assets.” Contact: Natalie Carter Web Address:
