Hong Kong is the crown jewel of Asia and one of the top three financial cities in the world, after New York and London. The legal system is transparent and buying real estate is straight forward, even if you can only get hold of leasehold property.
Even if there are many estate agents in Hong Kong, it can be a daunting task to find one, as many market themselves in Cantonese. Yet, you’ll be able to find a number of international agencies that are used to cater to foreign buyers.
In this article, I’ve listed some of the most popular real estate agents in Hong Kong. Let’s have a look.
