Savills opens in Colombia

02 December 2015

Savills has today, 2 December 2015, announced the opening of a new office in Bogota, Colombia in partnership with established Colombian real estate advisor, CREA Management.

Savills Colombia will be headed by general manager Claudia Robledo Arias and vice president of capital markets Angelica Mejia Ramirez.  The team will work closely with Savills expanding business across the Americas, in particular Mexico City as well as its wider US business Savills Studley.

Claudia Robledo has over 16 years experience in the international real estate arena, with 13 years spent in Europe.  Claudia was project manager of EC Harris working across office and shopping mall projects in Spain, France and Italy before joining CBRE as director of international asset management responsible for portfolios in England, Germany, Belgium, France and Eastern Europe.  Having returned to Bogota to join Bancolombia as investment director of the Bank’s real estate fund, she most recently set up CREA management, a company devoted to structuring real estate transactions.  Together with Angelica Mejia, who has over 10 years experience coordinating the technical structuring and bidding for large scale buildings and infrastructure, they will service Savills clients in this area.

Javier Kutz Clever of Savills Mexico says: “As the third largest country in Latin America, Colombia has seen extraordinary growth and is an attractive investment proposition with an expanding infrastructure development and construction industry.  This business will complement our existing Latin American service offering, and is a direct response to international clients looking for opportunities in countries with a rapidly developing real estate offer."

Claudia Robledo, head of Savills Colombia, adds: “Colombia’s market has seen the creation of professional funds and development of complex projects that have begun to demand a higher level of advice in real estate.  The shift towards sole ownership of properties means landlords now require full professional real estate services.”
