Richard Stross – Partner

Richard is celebrating 40 years in property this year.
After a career in the City of London, Richard joined Mann and Co (now Countrywide) as a negotiator and rapidly rose to Branch Manager. Exploring pastures new, Richard moved from Surrey to the West End of London and worked initially with Keith Cardale Groves selling apartments and houses as far north as St John’s Wood.

A return to Surrey saw a move to Hamptons where he worked in Wimbledon and Esher, dealing as before with top end properties.

Overseas property was the next draw and after selling properties initially on the Costa del Sol as an agent, Richard moved out to Almeria and ran an extremely successful office dealing with off-plan, new and previously owned properties.

On returning to the UK, Richard developed and ran an agency network selling properties in Cyprus, before joining up with Peter Callwood and forming Overseas Select, which dealt with properties worldwide, with particular emphasis on South Africa, selling wholly owned and fractional properties in the Kruger Park.

Until recently semi-retired and playing a lot of golf, Richard is delighted to have joined up again with Peter and also Kevin McCarthy, to look after the Portuguese side of the operation and introduce some of the most select and prestigious properties available on the Algarve.

Kevin McCarthy – Partner

Kevin has spent more than 25 years in international live-events, marketing, and exhibitions. He has worked in the international property sector for more than 10 years. Kevin brings a friendly, enthusiastic, passionate and professional client services approach to the business.

It is his primary focus.

Aquila Global Properties is proud to announce its membership of AIPP.

The Association of International Property Professionals has invited Aquila Global Properties to become a member of the professional regulatory association which enforces a code of conduct for all members. We are pleased to be a member of an essential industry organisation such as AIPP and its formal links to the NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents, the regulatory body for estate agents in the UK). The board of Aquila Global Properties is very focused on strict standards of conduct in the overseas property industry which has had its fair share of bad press and corruption in the past. The entire company is happy to conduct rigorous due diligence for all properties that we are associated with in order to maintain total customer satisfaction and repeat business for our valued clients. On many an occasion we have totally ignored entire geographic regions and countries because we do not want to expose our clients to any significant potential risks. We are always happy to advise our clients confidentially whether they should buy or sell any property in a particular location. Please contact our enquiry section for further information regarding the aforementioned.

Partnership with Professional, Leisure and Sport Professionals

Aquila Global Property could never be described as a “run of the mill” overseas estate agency. We aspire to be different by offering our clients a complete range of value-add services which make the whole concept of overseas property ownership and transactions a pleasure rather than a chore. We have a range of experts and professional partners who can advise on everything from interior design and supply of furniture and interior fixtures at market leading prices, legal and financial advisors who are experts in their respective fields, sport professionals who can advise on golf, yachting and boating, scuba diving, international removal companies, currency transfer specialists who can be relied upon to get you the most favourable rate of exchange, Motorsport, Travel Packages to suit all budgets, hotel selection, car rental packages including luxury cars. We encourage people contacting us and using us as a Concierge Service for any aspect of overseas home ownership. We really want all our clients to feel as though they made the best choice by contacting us from their initial thoughts to actually purchasing a property in their desired location and receiving excellent after purchase customer service. In all aspects of the overseas property journey we want you to feel as though you could call on us at any time to obtain some information, advice or a solution.

Do you have an Overseas property to sell?

In our Tailor Made programme we offer a bespoke service that will list your property and up to ten (10) photos of your property on our website for £250.00 for up to six months or until sold. In addition, we will charge a fixed fee of 3% commission to sell your property using our extensive resources. Please contact us for more information. We do not list properties in the United Kingdom but are happy to recommend an estate agent who specialises in your particular location.
