Chestertons Costa del Sol has launched, headquartered in Marbella, Spain.

Global estate agency Chestertons International Real Estate Brokerage LLC has signed up Team España to its luxury real estate network, a business with 20 years of property sales and investment experience in Spain, which is now going under the Chestertons name.

Led by Jack Cheshire and managed by Jamie Buss, there are plans to expand the business across the Costa del Sol region over the course of the next three years.

Jamie McMullan, global head of operations at Chestertons Global, said: “Chestertons Costa del Sol expands our strong presence in Spain, where we are currently enjoying impressive growth through our existing partners in Sotogrande, Gibraltar and other parts of this beautiful country.

“As the UK is a natural feeder market for these offices, our strong brand presence in London will undoubtedly provide a steady stream of international referrals to Jack, Jamie and their team moving forward.”

McMullan added: “Team España brings with it a wealth of real estate expertise and a true passion for the region; I look forward to seeing the team continue to flourish under the Chestertons brand.

“I am confident that this strategic move will bring real value to the business and I am therefore delighted that they have joined.”

Cheshire and Buss’s backgrounds originate from London’s investment industry, Morgan Stanley Investment Bank and LGT Vestra respectively.

With a long-established presence in Nerja, one of the most competitive real estate markets in the area, they, along with their team, are now looking forward to expanding across the region in collaboration with Chestertons.

Jamie Buss, general manager for Team España and Chestertons Costa del Sol, said: “We joined Chestertons to help our team of experts meet the ambition of expanding into Marbella on the Costa del Sol in 2021.

“There were several opportunities with franchisors that came our way, but Chestertons stood out due to the business’ focus on deploying technology to gain deeper insights and to make the sales process as easy as possible.

“It’s really exciting to be part of what we view to be the future of estate agency and believe this strategic move will set us apart from our competitors.”
