New rentals division for Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty
“Try before you buy” is a very real consideration for those who don’t have the capital or the conviction to commit to a property purchase in today’s financial climate. As a response, Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty opened its dedicated rentals office in April this year and business is already brisk.
Isabel Steinkamp, Head of Rentals, explains the decision, “Establishing a rentals division is a logical step for Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty. Not only does it cater to the “try before you buy” market, but it also gives our would-be vendors, who are perhaps waiting for the property market to make a full recovery, a chance to earn some regular income from their asset. We also act as an add-on to our sales team when they are dealing with investor clients who want to maximise their return through rentals. Finally I can say with confidence that those tenants who have a smooth and happy renting experience with us will choose Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty when they’re ready to buy.”
Headquartered in Port Andratx, Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty Rentals Division focuses on high quality apartments and villas primarily in the southwest of the Island – although the net will be spread wider for exceptional properties. Targeting long-term tenants only, Isabel is finding that almost all clients are foreigners with German, English and Scandinavians topping the enquiry list.
Isabel herself has eight years experience in the Mallorcan rental market and knows her subject intimately. With dual nationality – Spanish and German – she is both affable and efficient and is already making great strides to make Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty the “go to” Company for rentals in the southwest. Expansion throughout the Island and into the new Ibiza Sotheby’s International Realty office is expected in the none-too-distant future.
