First there was a UK-wide network of the best independent real estate brokers. Founded in 1995, the Mayfair Office has grown to become one of the foremost groups of luxury real estate agents in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Mayfair International Realty has an influential and talented equestrian real estate team to help all those looking to buy or sell property in this niche market across international boundaries.
So many buyers moving overseas look for real estate by or close to their favourite golf courses or those that favour their handicaps. Inside knowledge of the real estate market linked to a detailed understanding of the golf scene is the best way to ensure a sound investment and a lower handicap. Mayfair International Realty can advise on just the right broker/agent who will be pleased to introduce buyers to all the options.

Whether buying or selling real estate, the best way to find the right broker is through good recommendation. The Mayfair International Realty network is as strong as it is because all the members have been well recommended. The very best service to buyers and sellers is to provide the name of a skilled, knowledgeable and sympathetic but uncompromising broker or agent, and this is where Mayfair International Realty excels.
Not only does the Mayfair International Realty website itself have a loyal, enthusiastic and ever-growing following across the world, but each day members’ properties are uploaded to the websites of the Financial Times and Country Life. These two sites alone receive thousands of visitors every day and are a valuable addition to the marketing mix of each property being promoted through Mayfair International Realty members.

Many international real estate buyers seek a waterside location.
