We’re passionate about property and are consummately professional in everything we do, which is why we are the world’s largest privately owned global property agency and consultancy. History: Knight Frank & Rutley was founded in 1896 as a valuations, surveying and auctions business. Its first sale was held on 23rd April at Conduit Street in London. Since then, Knight Frank has grown to become the worlds largest privately owned global property agency and consultancy. Today it is widely regarded throughout the world as the firm of choice for high quality commercial and residential property advice. The 1960s saw the firm expand into Europe, and in the following decades that followed offices have been acquired in Asia-Pacific, Australia, Africa and the Caribbean. The global network now includes US based Newmark Knight Frank, encompassing 195 offices in 38 countries across six continents. Our reputation for uncompromising professionalism in everything we do is earned day in day out when serving our clients and gaining their trust. Operating as a Limited Liability Partnership, the firm’s Proprietary Partners are free to run in such a way that has led to sustained success and a corporate culture that helps it recruit and retain the best people who are the essence of the firm. June 2008 saw an exciting and historic milestone in Knight Frank’s long history when the number of head office staff reached 850 and was relocated from Hanover Square [home since 1910] to its new Global HQ at 55 Baker Street, London W1. This is now where its commercial and residential teams share three large predominantly open plan floorplates totalling 100 000 sq ft. This has strengthened Knight Franks ability to offer clients a truly multi-disciplined global property consultancy.
