Bangkok is one of Asia’s major expat centres and also boasts some of the most expensive real estate in the region. Likewise, it has a well developed and professional industry of property agents to meet a variety of markets and clientele. There is a specific sector that caters to expats, with international property agencies managed by foreigners to meet the expectations of big spenders.
Typically, they maintain large portfolios supported by good websites, with a large selection of condos and houses to suit modestly paid teachers and multinational executives. The property agents recommended below are just some of many which we trust. It is, however, prudent in Thailand to vet the reputation of your real estate agent, and lawyer, since the law isn’t very harsh on unethical practice.
