Meet Trevor Abrahamson, who heads up Glentree International, the estate agency that specialises in buying and selling property for the super rich. Fiona Keating met up with Trevor for tea in the classically beautiful surroundings of The Cornthian Hotel, in Whitehall Place, London. He has sold houses on Bishops Avenue to the tune of £50 million, so if there’s anyone who knows about property and what makes the fabulously wealthy, it’s Trevor.

Many an estate agent has the odd anecdote about a sneakygazumping or conveyancing dispute. Few have stories as jawdroppingas Trevor Abrahmsohn’s tale of two buyers who couldn’tmeet in the middle. “A developer was selling two apartments for£20 million, but he and the buyer could not agree on the exactprice,” Trevor explains. “The buyer had a plane to catch, and was ina hurry. So I asked them to spin a coin for a million pounds. Theyspun. The developer lost, but the deal went through.” Hardly youraverage property deal, but then Trevor is not your average estateagent.For 38 years, he has been selling homes in Bishops Avenue. In thiswell-groomed neck of the north London woods, houses are thesize of supertankers, and pillared like a parliament building.His first sale was for £2 million, back in the Seventies, but hisnewest property, Heath Hall, is on the market for £100 million. Thenews that Britain is emerging from economic downturn is old hathere. At no point in the last four years have the winds of recessionblown down this particular Billionaire’s Row.

 We find out more about Glentree International, their history, their knowledge and what is the secret of their undoubted success. Why Glentree – Sales? The year is 1976. Many will remember it as the summer when the country sweltered in a heat wave the like of which had never been experienced before. The property market was the worst it had been post-war and it was also the year in which Glentree International was born from a bedroom in a residential hotel in Golders Green. Six weeks later the company sold the first million pound property, which would now be worth over £30 million.  The rest, as they say, is history.  Glentree deals with some of the world’s most expensive homes. In fact they are proud to disclose that they are responsible for the sale of 20% of the super-prime property in the capital. Over the years they have achieved some remarkable prices and including Toprak Mansion sold to a Khazhak billionaire for a reputed £50 million and another sale in Kensington for $100million. Illustrious clients have included Sir Martin Sorrell, Richard Caring, Richard Desmond, Joan Collins, Lulu and so many, many, others.

Tycoon is selling £100m house in Hampstead because his wife says the only way for her is Essex

Posted on

A property magnate has put his Beverly Hills-style mansion in north London up for sale for £100 million — because his wife would rather live in Essex. Heath Hall on The Bishops Avenue in Hampstead is the most expensive property on the market in the capital and one of only a tiny handful of homes globally valued in nine figures. The sprawling 14-bedroom house was built for sugar tycoon William Park Lyle in 1910 but owner Andreas Panayiotou has spent £40 million refurbishing and extending it over six years. He is selling up, according to reports, because his wife Susan would rather be an Essex girl —and stay at their 20-acre estate in Epping Forest.

Russians Want to Live Near Trees and Karl Marx

 On one of the highest points of London, surrounded by serene ponds and historic architecture, is a real estate alcove for wealthy, and often secretive, Russian buyers. Luxury property in north London, like the homes in the scenic Hampstead Heath area, has become increasingly popular among Russians who prefer to pass on the intense competition for central trophy addresses in favor of secluded suburban homes. While Russians who are making their first purchases in the London real estate market usually look for central locations, those who are familiar with the city are more interested in luxury properties in the suburbs, said Yelena Yurgeneva, regional director of residential real estate at Knight Frank Russia & CIS. “Right now, Russians are not only looking at London as a shopping destination but also as a city to give their children a good education,” Yurgeneva said.
