NEW YORK, May 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Sotheby’s International Realty today announced the opening of KADENA Sotheby’s International Realty in Serbia, signifying the brand’s continued strength in Europe. The addition marks the brand’s 10th affiliated office in Eastern Europe and its 205th affiliated office in the EMEIA region.
KADENA Sotheby’s International Realty is owned and operated by Kadena Properties, one of the leading real estate developers in Serbia, and Hunter Milborne, owner of Montenegro Sotheby’s International Realty and partner of KADENA Sotheby’s International Realty. Managing Director, Nikola Nedeljkovic, will run the company’s headquarters in the city of Belgrade, which will service the entire country.
“The luxury market in Serbia is seeing a steady increase in interest,” said Philip White, president and CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty. “This is primarily due to the nation’s growing purchasing power, an influx of expats and Serbians who see the country as a great place to invest and reside, and the number of new developments emerging in the country, including the launch of St. Regis Residences Belgrade. I look forward to welcoming Nikola and the entire KADENA Sotheby’s International Realty team to the network.”
“Serbia is an excellent choice for buyers looking to purchase a property with solid investment potential,” said Nedeljkovic. “As an EU candidate country, Serbia is becoming an attractive destination due to its history, nightlife, and affordability when compared to other countries in the region. Our affiliation enables us to tap into a growing luxury market and showcase our listings both domestically and internationally, with the credibility and strength of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand behind us.”
The office currently has several sales associates with plans for continued growth. The country’s biggest real estate development, Belgrade Waterfront, which includes the St. Regis Residences, will be one of the firm’s new development projects. The residences and development will be represented by the KADENA Sotheby’s International Realty team.
