Profile

Caroline Takla

Description

Spear's Review

Caroline Takla is proud of the firm’s growth since its inception in 2009. After working for some of London’s top agencies since 2002, the fluent Arabic speaker established the agency to fill in a niche in the sophisticated buying market. She has led acquisitions worth over £750 million for HNWs from 41 countries, including royalty, many highly successful business leaders, Forbes-listed billionaires and Bollywood stars.

The company’s profile has grown in a discreet but acclaimed way — this year it has been selected as one of only 14 businesses to participate in the prestigious Parliamentary Review (Finance Edition), and has recently launched its development arm. The Collection is currently managing development of over £25 million of residential property.

Adviser Profile

Caroline Takla is Managing Director at The Collection. She began her property career two decades ago and went on to set The Collection up in 2009. Since then, the affable Arabic speaker has garnered a reputation of tenacity, an expert negotiator.

Far from simply fulfilling her clients' requirements, she views each brief as a wealth creating opportunity for her clients, whether it be through property acquisition, development, and if required, managing the eventual sale of the asset. Clients can appoint her for one or all three of the services, with impressive results. She consistently exceeds her clients' expectations, often breaking records. Her expertise lies within both outer and Prime Central London.
