Profile

Irene Luke

Description

Spear's Review

Irene Luke is the property savant raising Savills’ profile in the ‘crowded’ marketplace of Monaco, where land reclamation is progressing more slowly than the rise of new-build apartments.

‘Whether clients are buying or selling, you’ve got to really know the market to make sure they are getting a fair deal,’ she says, adding that she was a commercial property lawyer in London who moved to Monaco and then joined Savills in 2011, becoming a co-managing partner a year on.

Luke says she is an ‘extremely cautious’ adviser to HNWs looking to buy. ‘I just don’t think you can really give concrete advice that someone can rely on for ever – things change very quickly here.’

Adviser Profile

"Irene Luke has been with Savills’ since 2011 and became a co-managing partner in 2012. She is a lawyer by training, having read law at Oxford University, and has practiced in both London and Monaco, working first as a commercial property lawyer, then in the private client field.

She decided to leave law and join Savills, tempted by the challenge of a career change and raising the Savills profile in Monaco. The adviser brings her legal skills to the real estate world, playing an advisory role alongside a commercial one when negotiating sales, purchases and rentals for her clients.

Familiar in dealing with UHNWIs, Luke is seen as a safe pair of hands when high-value deals are on the table."
