Berlin's Black Label Properties Opens New Office in Hong Kong

08 August 2017 09:30


Berlin international estate agency Black Label Properties has opened a new office in Hong Kong to help cater for the growing demand for German real estate in China.

Chinese investors have become increasingly important for the Berlin property market and Mrs Nancy Yuan, Black Label's Director Asia, has been overrun by requests from China and Asia. Revenues for the Chinese market have already risen to several million euros in the first half of 2017.

Founded in 2011, Black Label has made its name as an innovative full-service real estate broker in Berlin, and they have already become the first stopover for Chinese and Asian investors attracted to buying apartments, houses or villas in top districts like Prenzlauer Berg, Charlottenburg, Wilmersdorf and Berlin-Mitte. With their new office in Hong Kong, Chinese customers now have the opportunity to purchase real estate in Berlin from them directly.

“I am delighted that Black Label now has a direct presence in Asia,” said Nancy Yuan. “Our office in Hong Kong not only offers our customers, partners and service providers a base in China, but also a gateway for clients across South-East Asia who are interested in Berlin. The intensive customer support we offer was new to the Chinese market and we are already receiving numerous new requests based on recommendations from existing customers. This shows that we are on the right track".

In addition to offering a professional property purchasing service, partnerships with Chinese-speaking lawyers and other consultants means that Black Label can offer its Asian clients important advice and information on tax, law, visa applications, company foundations, studies in Germany, contacts with embassies, chambers of commerce and other support organisations in both China and Germany. With the support of the Black Label team, it is now also easier for German private customers to sell their properties directly to China.

Nancy continued “We held numerous information events in Hong Kong, Hangzhou and Shanghai, but also within the Chinese communities in Germany, where our advice includes tips on the numerous regulations that clients have to be aware of in the German real estate market. Over the past three years, the entire Black Label team have compiled information for Chinese customers in their own language and established a network of partners to support our clients.”

Black Label's move into China comes as interest from Chinese investors is increasingly expanding beyond countries such as Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada. In the opinion of Black Label Director Achim Amann, the Germany has turned out to be the most important investment destination in Europe from the point of view of many Chinese people overnight.

“If Berlin remains open and welcoming, it can and will benefit enormously from this new and growing interest. Our well-regulated and secure property market is also very attractive to institutional Chinese investors are currently looking worldwide for safe investment opportunities,” commented Achim Amann. “A special value is placed on our very transparent way of pricing and selling a property, and in the future, Germany and Berlin will play an even greater role than we can even guess today, as markets in China and Asia, in general, continue to develop.”

About Nicci Talbot Communications / Cité

Nicci Talbot is a freelance journalist, author, copywriter and PR specialising in property and travel. International PR at Black Label Properties Berlin. Social Media Manager at NUJ LFB and Nexus Communications.

Current project:

Cité zine was launched in 2017 a by British travel journalist with itchy feet and a desire for a better quality of life. The aim is to compare and contrast life in the UK with other cities around the world to find out where the best places to be a woman are regarding education, culture, health, childcare, work, and longevity. The name Cité is old French for city and ‘union of citizens, a citizenry,’ which is all the more relevant post Brexit.

“I love to travel and have Lithuanian roots on my mother’s side, which I’m starting to explore. My first trip abroad was a school exchange to France with my aunt who taught French at Hull University. I stayed with a family in Angers who had a daughter around the same age, which gave me a taste of school life and French food (my first time eating horse meat!). In my 20s I went backpacking around Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the US working in all kinds of places via WWOOF UK, which gives you free board in return for labour on the land. It’s a great way to travel on a budget and gives you an insight into the psychology of people and places: why they live where they do and how our environment inspires and motivates us. I worked in a rebirthing centre on the Gold Coast (lots of deep breathing, no gluten for 2 weeks); a biodynamic farm near Perth (didn’t work out as I wore deodorant and drank milky coffee); yoga ashram in Brisbane (accused of stealing money, left), and did some divorce decluttering at a house in Byron Bay.

Since the Brexit vote, I have been in despair at the thought of being cut off from the rest of Europe and my daughter being denied the same opportunities to travel and work abroad. I was inspired to start this blog to document my adventures and all the interesting people I’m meeting through my work as a journalist via the NUJ LFB and Black Label Properties Berlin. In a year’s time, my daughter will be going on exchange to an international school in China to start her secondary education, so it’s a new chapter for both of us, not without wobbles, but I hope full of opportunity and new adventure. It will be interesting to compare the school systems and see what she gets out of it. She has travelled to Europe, Italy, Japan and the US as an unaccompanied minor, so I spend a fair bit of my time doing the airport run.

Where do you find that elusive mix of sunshine, affordable property, culture, lifestyle and well-paid work? Is it best to split your time with a city base and some fun in the sun? What’s the best way to learn a new language? How do you go about setting up a business abroad or working as a freelancer? This blog aims to shed light on different cities and lifestyles around the world, the issues happening there, and how to relocate successfully be it full or part-time. If you’ve ever wondered what life in another country can be like, this blog is for you. I hope you find it useful and inspiring.” – Nicci Talbot, editor.
