US agency crosses the pond to target British buyers

A US real estate brokerage is heading to the UK, with plans to target those looking for a holiday home across the pond.

Call It Closed International Realty, which describes itself as the first and only international, cloud-based, 100% commission brokerage, is based in Naples and currently operates in 18 states including California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New York and Texas.

The new London location will provide prospective British buyers access to a robust network of several hundred Call It Closed agents and brokers across the country, said Chad Osborne, the company’s chief executive and, with his wife Aprile, co-founder.


He said: “The US and U.K. real estate markets operate quite differently, but one thing is clear: unlike the large brokerages, our entrepreneurial model gives agents a greater opportunity to succeed,

“And when agents are freed from paying hefty franchise fees and higher commissions, those savings invariably benefit the buyers and sellers whom they represent.”

Call It Closed’s UK office will be run by another husband-and-wife team, Steve Tasker and his spouse Kelly Owbridge-Tasker, a commercial property manager and healthcare executive with more than 30 years of experience.

She said: “The new partnership with Call It Closed International Realty is truly a game-changer.

“British buyers will have access to a nationwide network of U.S. brokers freed from the constraints of an outdated business model that primarily benefitted large brokerages. And the agents who represent those buyers will have their own opportunity to benefit from the more entrepreneurial model that is the U.S. real estate market.”
