“Referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’ and renowned for its pristine beaches, lagoons and reefs, Mauritius has been a successfully colonized region by the Dutch, French and British until its independency was achieved in 1968. A tropical island with a myriad of sea and land produce, Mauritius showcases an encompassing urban life with contrasting beautiful mountainous interiors of rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails and native fauna. Its 330 kilometer coastal line and in-land lifestyle make it a prime tourist destination and a heavenly island blessed with a multitude of cultural influences. Since 2004, the government opened up the island to foreign homebuyers with access to permanent residency, creating high demand for homes, giving rise to luxury residential developments. Access to golf estates, beachfront resorts, integrated villages and marinas make Mauritius an ideal market for the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand. We are truly excited about our investments here and our goal is to deliver exceptional customer service through our best in-class associates, whom reflect our prestigious brand position.”

Sotheby’s International Realty Brand Expands Presence into Mauritius

Mauritius_beachSotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC today announced that Espral International Ltd, a land and property development company in Mauritius, has joined its luxury real estate network and will now do business as Mauritius Sotheby’s International Realty.

The firm, which is represented by Gilbert Espitalier-Noel as chief executive officer, will be managed by Diane Watkins and Timo Geldenhuys and serve the high-end real estate market throughout Mauritius.

“Our expansion into Mauritius continues our commitment to providing access to the Sotheby’s International Realty network’s exclusive real estate services in key countries around the world,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.  “Mauritius is a beautiful island nation in the Indian Ocean off the southeast coast of the African continent. Known for its blue seas, white sandy beaches and luxury hotels, the island is also home to significant luxury real estate offering a truly unique lifestyle.  We are proud to have this team of professionals represent us in this fine market. ”
