A London agency has opened its second office in the south of the capital.
Kalmars’ new branch is on the historic Old Kent Road - now a regeneration area - and will handle sales and rentals in that location as well as Peckham, Queens Road, Elephant and Castle, Nunhead and Deptford.
The agency, which also handles commercial property, says the Old Kent Road area is ripe for regeneration.
“Tired low-rise retail warehouses and factories are being replaced by new apartment buildings and mixed-use developments, providing 20,000 new homes and workspace for 10,000 new jobs, creating a new town centre for London. Southwark Council have also just been granted £10 million to revitalise the Old Kent Road” explains the agency.
Residential sales director Sebastian Kalmar says: “Kalmars expansion into Old Kent Road is part of the strategic growth of the business. Old Kent Road is one of London’s key regeneration spots and we are now located to service the influx of residential and commercial demand.”
The agency was established back in 1967 by Michael Kalmar before his son Richard joined in 1977. In 2012 Richard’s son, Sebastian Kalmar, joined the business.
The company says no other estate agent is instructed on as many commercial and residential properties in the SE1 area of London. The agency typically handles deals for over £600m of sites, commercial and residential property per annum in the south London marketplace.
