YORK-based property agency Croft Residential, which specialises in marketing country estates and individual properties across the north of England, has been appointed as the sole UK agent for Mallorcan real estate agent Engel & Volkers.

The deal will see the two agencies work together exclusively to promote a portfolio of properties on the Spanish island from April this year.

Toby Cockcroft, director of Croft Residential, said: “The partnership makes perfect sense as we have a very similar client base, and many of the buyers and vendors I work with also know Mallorca well.

“We have many overseas clients and others who own properties on the island, which has become a favourite for luxury second homes.”

Croft Residential is already handling enquiries on some of Engel & Volkers’ portfolio of more than 50 luxury villas, estates and country homes on the Balearic island, valued from €2 million to more than €48 million.

Mr Cockcroft said: “Just as with our UK property portfolio, we have been trusted to market some of the most individual, prestigious and unique homes on Mallorca, and we are happy to offer advice in the market to anyone considering a move.”

Croft Residential is also the UK agent for residential property at the Torremirona golf resort and hotel spa near Girona in north eastern Spain.

Mr Cockroft added: “Although our focus remains the more individual end of the Yorkshire and Northern England private homes market, our activity in Spain is a very attractive additional service for our highly international client base.”
