After British army arrival at Possession Point (now Hollywood Park next to Possession Street) in 1841, the 800 or so volunteer soldiers from India and Bangladesh stationed in West Point (hillside of Water Street). Thereafter, the area west of Hollywood Park was called Sai Ying Pun 西營盤, meaning 'Western Garrison'. Flourishing trades required construction of piers, docks, warehouses, and properties to accommodate merchants for rice, dry seafoods, and herbal medicines, and the workers who supported these activities. Even today, one can still find remnants of the early colonial past in the district. World War II brought mass destruction, giving rise to reconstruction of many buildings to four to six storey tenement buildings with shops on ground floor. Rapid population growth and technological advancement necessitate these post war buildings to be redeveloped into highrises.
There are many prestigious colleges and schools can be found in this district, namely King's College, St. Clare Primary, St. Stephen Girls College, St. Paul College, etc.
Property values were suppressed as MTR somehow missed Sai Wan when the railway opened in 1979. Thanks to recent MTR access, the long forgotten sleepy Sai Wan is coming back in a vengeance. As old buildings are redeveloped, new home buyers and tenants are moving in, which attract new and upscale businesses to serve this new and more affluent customer base. The district is now flourishing as many new businesses are setting up, including chain stores, specialty stores, and trendy restaurants and pubs.

Carmen from Proway came as a blessing in disguise! She communicates extremely well and is very understanding of our needs as a family.

Juhi Schmidl's client say:
We spent a significant time working with agents, unsuccessfully, to find the right apartment. Unlike other agents Juhi had a very clear understanding of our requirements and quality. Within a short period of time she arranged 3 apartments and successfully negotiated on the best. We never felt pressured or managed. She was efficient, insightful and ethical. Highly recommend her services.

Christina helped me to find a perfect apartment in Hong Kong! After the initial contact, she knew exactly what I was looking for, showed me a few great listings and helped negotiate a fair price for the apartment I choose. She is very punctual and responds usually straight away to any queries. I would recommend her to everyone looking for a place on HK island.

Juhi Schmidl's client say:
Juhi took care to address all my requirements in terms of features and amenities that I was looking for in a rental apartment. She helped me negotiate the best possible deal with the landlord, going through several rounds on her own initiative, and went the extra mile to ensure that I was all set to move in without any hassle. If anyone wants to ensure a smooth and rewarding experience when looking for a great place to live, they should definitely get in touch with Juhi!
