The mission statement of Atlas Property Group, says director Frixos D Kaimakamis, is ‘to care for our clients’ property as if it were our own’. As a Chartered Surveyor with over 16 years of professional experience, Kaimakamis joined Atlas Property more than 12 years ago. He oversees the acquisition of property, asset management and day-to-day management of the property portfolio.
‘We aim to deliver a level of care and service our clients cannot find elsewhere,’ Kaimakamis says. ‘We are not driven by fees, but by a desire to ensure our clients are delighted with the care they receive.’
The firm leverages its ‘excellent’ connections with selling agents and auction houses to source the right investments for its clients. It also understands the ‘dynamic and constantly changing’ real estate industry in London, aiming to ensure that clients’ investments evolve with the market, while exploring all avenues to add value.
Lease negotiations, rent reviews and planning gains are just some of the ways it seeks to maximise returns. ‘The best barometer for how well we are doing is how many of our clients refer us to their family, friends, and colleagues,’ says Kaimakamis.
With over £650 million of commercial and residential property under management, Atlas prides itself on being experts in handling the day-to-day challenges faced by landlords. ‘We offer comprehensive management services covering rent collection, 24-hour emergency contact for tenants, reactive and proactive maintenance and service charge administration,’ says the firm. ‘Our understanding of the increasingly complex regulations ensures that our clients’ properties are fully compliant at all times.’
Atlas is also acting as development manager on a scheme in Farringdon where its clients have formed a joint venture with Investec to deliver a new office development.
Alongside this, Atlas has recently been appointed as the property partners for a new ‘value-add’ commercial property fund. ‘We are extremely excited about this as it significantly increases the capital we can deploy and the investors of the fund can leverage our knowledge and experience,’ he says.
The firm has quadrupled in size in the last 10 years, in terms of assets under management, number of staff, rent collected and turnover.
‘We are very proud of this achievement as, due to the discreet nature and profile of the work we do, growth is organic and relies largely on word of mouth,’ Kaimakamis says.
