Savills Company Profile

Founded in the UK in 1855 by Alfred Savill in East Central London, Savills is now one of the world's most established and respected property agents.

Its experience and expertise spans the globe, with 600 offices across the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East.

The company prides itself on its wide-ranging specialist and local knowledge and aims to provide superb trustworthy advice and help for individuals, businesses and institutions to enable them to make better property decisions.

When it comes to buying and selling property, Savills advises across all commercial, residential and rural markets, from country cottages to city centre offices, agricultural land to new-build developments.

Their services are designed to help customers maximise the value of their assets, and to help investors every step of the way of the transaction process.

Its website states:

“With over 35,000 people working across 60 countries around the world, we'll always have an expert who is local to you, with the right knowledge to help.”

That expertise is reflected in the fact that 2019 marked the 13th consecutive year the international real estate advisor was marked number one in the real estate agents / advisor category league table in the UK Business Superbrand list.

The Business Superbrands survey has been tracking the perception of a wide range of business brands in the UK since 2001.

The 2019 survey evaluated just under 1,600 brands across 63 categories and the research process was managed by The Centre for Brand Analysis (TCBA) in partnership with Dynata, one of the world’s leading data research companies.

The voting process involved 2,500 UK business professionals, accompanied by an expert council including 24 senior business-to-business marketing leaders.

All voters were asked to judge brands against the three core factors inherent in a ‘superbrand’: namely quality, distinction and reliability.


Savills offers seven auctions a year in London featuring properties from across the country.

Past auctions have performed consistently well.
