Svoboda & Williams Expands to Slovakia
Svoboda & Williams, a renowned real estate agency with Czech roots that has been active on the domestic real estate market for almost two decades, started offering its services in Slovakia this spring. The agency is the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate for Slovakia. This prestigious global network offers properties in the most sought-after locations worldwide.
Czech real estate agency Svoboda & Williams, founded by Marion Williams and Prokop Svoboda, early on established itself as the dominant player in the domestic premium real estate segment. Its reputation is founded on a progressive marketing philosophy and the high quality of its services and portfolio. In 2017, the agency became the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate for the Czech Republic and Slovakia. “The license we received from Christie’s was the immediate impulse for our expansion,” explains Prokop Svoboda, owner of Svoboda & Williams. Another important factor was the high level of interconnection between the Czech and Slovak markets. “In recent years, investors we cooperate with in the Czech Republic, many of them from Slovakia, have often encouraged us to extend our services to the Slovak market,” says Prokop Svoboda. Svoboda & Williams is expanding to Slovakia at a time when the country is undergoing an unprecedented real estate boom caused in part by low mortgage interest rates. Every quarter, the prices of Slovak properties set new records.
Alongside Svoboda & Williams, which focuses on premium properties, the agency is also expanding the Feelhome brand to Slovakia in order to offer high quality apartments and family houses in the mid and lower price ranges. Properties at the proverbial tip of the real estate iceberg will carry the prestigious Christie’s International Real Estate label. “Our cooperation with Christie’s International Real Estate, which is owned by the legendary auction house, offers Slovak premium property owners the opportunity to present their homes and apartments within the context of a brand with an esteemed international reputation and will therefore help them reach investors all over the world. Slovak buyers will have easy access to luxury properties in the most attractive locations worldwide,” adds Prokop Svoboda.
JUDr. David Martan RSc., who has over 15 years of experience on the Slovak market and has worked on a number of successful real estate projects, will head the Slovak branch of Svoboda & Williams. David Martan is a lawyer and holds the title of RSc. (Real Estate Consultant), which is the highest level of real estate education that one can achieve. “We offer Slovak clients the added value of distinguished brands and the know-how of an established real estate agency combined with our expert knowledge of the market. We have put together a team of real estate experts who will work in the Bratislava branch. Negotiations with property owners and local developers are under way,” stated David Martan. Svoboda & Williams will offer its services to those interested in selling, buying, or renting properties, as well as to developers. The agency’s own marketing team creates a comprehensive marketing strategy and the project’s visual identity, which it then communicates through Svoboda & Williams’ marketing channels and through the purchase of advertisements.
The Bratislava branch of Svoboda & Williams is located in Old Town on Ventúrska 12. You can find the Feelhome brand in the new Slnečnice neighborhood, which is being built on the right bank of the Danube River at the edge of Petržalka, on Zuzany Chalupovej 10B. The Feelhome office is also open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
