“High-end residential real estate is an intensely competitive and dynamic niche sector, which has been bolstered by an influx of high net-worth individuals and the growth of family offices,” says Armstrong. He adds: “I am confident that (Chern’s) wealth of experience will help drive our residential sales and lettings operations to even greater heights.”
