South London estate agents KALMARS announce the appointment of three new members of staff
South London estate agents KALMARs are pleased to announce the appointment of three new members of staff ahead of their expansion with the opening of their new office at 366 Old Kent Road in early 2021.
Tallulah Davids, Brendan McMillan and Anthony Carter join as KALMARs new Office Coordinator, Retail and Decentralised Office Consultant, and Junior Office Consultant respectively.
The new Old Kent Road office will provide 1,100 sqft of space and will operate in conjunction with KALMARs’ existing Shad Thames head office, led by Managing Director Richard Kalmar and the base for the company’s thriving commercial division. The new Old Kent Road office will focus on residential sales and new homes and will be headed by Marc Faure, Head of New Homes, and Sebastian Kalmar, Director.
The move to Old Kent Road is timely as this once neglected part of London is poised to become a massive regeneration area with up to 20,000 new homes, workspace for 10,000 new jobs, new schools and £3.1 billion invested in upgraded transport facilities.
Tallulah Davids’ role as Office Coordinator will be to ensure the smooth running of the new office at Old Kent Road. She brings invaluable experience after successful stints at several residential agencies as an Office Manager.
Brendan McMillan, Retail and Decentralised Office Consultant joins KALMARs’ retail team, which specialises in the sale and letting of commercial property. Brendan is a BA graduate from the University of Gloucestershire and has worked for The Trademark Group Ltd and Galliard Homes.
Anthony Carter, Junior Office Consultant, joins the commercial team at KALMARs after working at international Chinese developer Greenland Group, which has offices and developments in London, where Anthony helped produce the placemaking strategy for Ram Quarter in Wandsworth, and supported the head of commercial management with the letting of commercial space at the development.
Sebastian Kalmar, Director at KALMARs, says: “KALMARs is pleased to be bringing talented people into our growing team of staff ahead of our second office opening on Old Kent Road early in the New Year. Tallulah brings a wealth of experience in office management that will be vital at Old Kent Road. Brendan brings an infectious enthusiasm and has a wide range of contacts in industry and experience in a range of departments and roles. Anthony’s experience means that he has a strong grounding in property development, and has built a strong network within the industry which he is eager to build upon at KALMARs as we continue to grow as a business.”
Marc Faure, Head of New Homes, at KALMARs says: “The opening of our new office on Old Kent Road is perfectly timed since there will be a series of new homes developments launching in the locality over the next few years and KALMARs as the local agent will be well positioned to assist with sales and marketing. Our brand presence is unrivalled in Southwark and we are looking to grow that influence across South London. By moving to Old Kent Road we can also continue the great work we have done to help with the area’s regeneration.”
The influx of new staff and the opening of the new office comes after a highly successful year for KALMARs, despite the challenges posed by COVID-19. KALMARs recently managed the launch of Bombay Street in Bermondsey, where over half the apartments in the new development were sold on the first day of the launch; and also the launch of Colorama , a build-to-rent scheme in Borough were all the apartments were rapidly let by KALMARs to tenants, with the vast majority being secured during the launch weekend.
