A little bit about us
Originally founded in 2002 by Serge Cowan and Sophie Hammond, Unique Living is an independent luxury estate agent, specialising in the sales, marketing AND purchasing of prestige and luxury property in the world’s most desirable locations including the French Riviera, Ibiza, Mallorca, Algarve, Costa del Sol, French Alps, Tuscany and Barbados to name a few.
We identified the need for a company that truly understood the mind-set of the luxury international property buyer as well as having detailed local knowledge of selling property in established prestigious markets around the world. Adopting an innovative approach to traditional estate agency, we have combined our widespread global coverage and sales and marketing experience with a tailor-made ‘Property Finder Service’ and ‘Mortgage & Finance Solutions’, to allow people from different countries to buy and sell through one central platform.
Our unique and modern approach to estate agency means we can meet the needs of both the buyers as well as the seller. Prestige property markets around the world behave in very different ways and the processes are very specialised. Our property finder service is a tailormade process, designed to remove the time and stress associated with searching for a property away from the buyer. Combine this with a wealth of sales and marketing experience promoting properties at this level, we are able to provide a transparent, high quality and unrivalled level of service, that our clients have become accustomed to for more than a decade.

Consequently we promote a global portfolio of luxury residential homes and boutique hotels for sale using the latest marketing and technological strategies, to enhance the lifestyle of each property to the widest possible international audience.
Property Finder Service
Through our tailor-made Property Finder Service , we invest significant time and energy into finding clients their dream second residence, holiday home or ideal investment, removing the stress and unfamiliarity associated with acquiring property overseas. Unlike traditional Estate Agents, if we do not have the property in our own portfolio we will extend our service to search 100% of the market for our clients to find the right property.
