“We consider being part of Mayfair International Realty as an essential move to guarantee that our clients’ properties reach the widest possible market,” said Renee Grubb, co-founder of Village Properties. “We are now working in a global real estate village. The international real estate investor is a reality. Our aim, working with Mayfair International Realty, is to bring the global investor to our marketplace.”

Mayfield International Realty, which is headquartered in London, is a network comprising more than 100 British brokerages and more than 300 offices throughout the United Kingdom. One Mayfield broker was established in 1750—more than a quarter of a century before the Declaration of Independence was written and signed. This kind of stable longevity and experience has helped Mayfield create and maintain a reputation for quality, integrity, experience and customer satisfaction.

Mr. Edick and Ms. Grubb co-founded Village Properties in 1996. They have since built the firm to more than 180 real estate agents while maintaining a strong involvement in the community.
