Savills Acquisition of Riviera Estates

20 June 2012

Savills has strengthened its overseas residential network, currently over 500 offices in 45 countries, with the acquisition of Riviera Estates in the south of France. Riviera Estates has been a Savills International associate for ten years and is one of the top luxury property agents in the Cote d’Azur.

The existing Riviera Estates offices will be fully branded and operated as Savills offices and will continue to market some of the finest residential properties on the French Riviera.

Jean Claude Caputo, current chief executive of Riviera Estates, will become managing director of the Savills French Riviera network and will be responsible for the offices in Nice, St Tropez, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, Valbonne, La Colle sur Loup, Monaco and Courchevel covering both sales and seasonal rentals.

Rupert Sebag-Montefiore, Head of Savills global residential, said: “Many of our international buyers, having bought in London, then look to buy in the south of France or the Alps. We have worked very effectively with Riviera Estates for many years and this acquisition is a positive next step in servicing our international clients.”

Jean Claude Caputo, said: “We are delighted to be joining the Savills global family. We share many clients with London, Moscow and New York and this closer relationship will certainly strengthen our operations in the Riviera, Monaco and Courchevel”
