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.

Jane was fantastic, very proactive and commercial, to help us source a property, when one fell over, she worked to source other properties in the same building at competitive prices.
Carsten Thomas's client say:
Carsten did a fantastic job in helping me find my new home in Hong Kong. Relocating from London and with little time on my hands, Carsten quickly understood my needs and was of great assistance in showing me around various districts and gradually homing in on my preferences. In the end he helped me to find the perfect apartment for me. His availability, assistance and guidance through the entire process have been of great help to me. Thank you so much again for all your help. Highly appreciated and would definitely recommend him!

Antony Daly's client say:
We just relocated from New York and were feeling quite discouraged by Hong Kong real estate when we first met Antony. Antony was so professional and patient with us, taking us to multiple listings until we found the one that truly suited us. If we were ever to move, Antony would be our first call, and we'd recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who's looking.

Juhi Schmidl's client say:
Late September we had the pleasure to meet Juhi, who helped us locate a rental apartment in Hong Kong. Juhi already came highly recommended from several friends, who had used her services in the past. Our Experience was really exceptional. Juhi had prepared several places in the requested neighborhood and price range for us to visit. The visits were all very well prepared, as well as the material provided by Juhi during this visit. We were very fortunate, that already on the first visit we found the apartment we wanted to rent. Juhi was again on Top of her game to ensure we could make sure the apartment would not be rented to someone else before. Even during the inspection and the follow-up calls after our move, Juhi and her team were always professional and courteous. Again, the overall experiences of the Services are truly exemplar to any Realtor and we are very happy to recommend Juhi to any of our friends and Business acquaintances in the future.

Christina Martin's client say:
Christina is a fantastic agent. We couldn't be any more grateful for all of her help. We were a group of 3 girls who didn't know exactly what we were looking for to begin with. With each place she showed us, she helped us to recognise just what we were after. She adapted each viewing to match exactly what we wanted and these completely matched our high expectations. She helped us to find the most perfect place and we couldn't be more happy with where we live - it is absolutely perfect and superb value for money. She helped with every single step from translating, to banking, to exchanging contracts. Christina also helped us to get set up with all bills and the people she recommended were brilliant too. The service didn't stop there as she helps us to sort anything we need and straight away with a smile. I could not recommend her more!
Antony Daly's client say:
Antony assisted me in negotiating the lease on a fantastic apartment. The apartment was exactly what we were looking for, the terms we negotiated were ideal and the service provided was top notch. An all around great experience.

Yvonne Lee's client say:
We started working with Ms. Lee in conjunction with other realtors to find a suitable place as soon as possible. Ms. Lee was by far the most responsive to our needs. She listened to what we were looking for in location and budget, and set up many viewings which were very suitable. Yvonne continued to help us through the entire process, including negotiating price, writing up the contract, and helping us find various items for our apartment. She was wonderful to work with and I would highly suggest her to anyone looking for a new apartment.
