Stanton Hillier Parker has announced it will re-open its real estate arm in Australia.
The business will be under the guidance of new management, offering boutique property advisory services to a diversified range of clients Australia-wide.
Stanton Hillier Parker was originally formed via the merger of Hillier Parker, first established in 1896 in the United Kingdom, and Stanton & Sons Limited, established by Richard Stanton in Sydney in the late 1800s.
The company has a rich heritage in Australia, having been responsible for the development of the Sydney suburbs of Rosebery and Haberfield. Richard Stanton was also the founder of the Real Estate Auctioneers and Agents’ Association of New South Wales.
During the 1970s the company operated around the world, with businesses in Scotland, Australia, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.
Speaking from the company’s new Sydney CBD headquarters, Managing Partner Eugene Evgenikos said he was excited to re-launch a real estate brand with a global property legacy, almost 20 years since it was last seen in a real estate agency capacity in Australia.
“We’ll be focussing on providing our clients with world-class service standards, expert advice and outstanding results underpinned by a passionate, highly-experienced management team,” Mr Evgenikos said.
“Leveraging our 123-year strong global property legacy, we’ll be creating truly invested partnerships that drive results and help our clients create a property legacy of their own.”
Mr Evgenikos, previously a partner and Head of Metropolitan Sales for Knight Frank in New South Wales, will oversee Stanton Hillier Parker’s provision of a broad range of real estate services to the Australian market.
This includes commercial sales and transactions, capital markets advice, leasing, asset management, residential project marketing and valuations to private, institutional and government clients.
The company has opened offices in the Sydney CBD and Mascot, with a valuation office in Parramatta. Stanton Hillier Parker is also sourcing a new office in the Melbourne CBD, Mr Evgenikos said.
“Our unique proposition in the market is the opportunity to grow through an equity partnership model – in the same way as Stanton Hillier Parker’s major global real estate agency business started,” he confirmed.
“Our brand pedigree and international recognition is a platform we will build on in Australia, and we look forward to announcing new offices and partnerships as we grow the platform.”
