Knight Frank named UK property advisor
Manama, October 31, 2011
Knight Frank has been appointed to advise the British government on its overseas property portfolio for the next five years and this time the position will include 20 countries throughout the Mena region.
In 2008, the Bahrain office of Knight Frank, headed by Don Bradley, was appointed to a major review of all the Foreign Office properties in North and South America, as well as the Asia Pacific region.
This covered more than 900 properties including the British embassies in Washington and Tokyo, all completed by a team operating out of Bahrain.
The appointment, especially during a period of significant political and market changes, displays confidence in Knight Frank's team to understand developments in the market and provide the best advice, said Mr Bradley.
This includes all regional embassies, residences, consulates and other property including some of the most prime located diplomatic offices in the region.
"Once again a major institution has selected Knight Frank as its preferred adviser on an important assignment and we are pleased to demonstrate our true professionalism in this region," said Bradley.-TradeArabia News Service
