Harrods Estates is a London-based estate agent which offer services for buying, renting and managing property. Harrods Estates was started in 1897 and has expanded gradually since then. In 2005 a second office was opened in Mayfair then in 2013 a third office opened in Chelsea. In May 2015 a fourth office opened in Kensington Church Street.
Harrods Estates, part of the Harrods group (Harrods, Harrods Aviation, Air Harrods, Harrods Bank and Harrods Corporate Services), were founded in 1897 and occupied a discreet position on the ground floor of the main Harrods building before moving three times between 1904 and 1908 as the team expanded in size from two employees to 20.
In 1919 the office moved across the road to 62-64 Brompton Road and provided an additional Auction Hall in the floor above, but in 1944 the office suffered a direct strike by a V-I Flying Rocket also known as a 'doodlebug rocket' which demolished the building. However, close to 300,000 packets of papers survived and a temporary move to the Wholesale office on Hans Crescent meant not a single day of work was lost.
Harrods Estates relocated its headquarters two more times to Basil Street then Park Lane, London before making their last move in 2001 when they returned to Brompton Road, this time number 82 - giving them a location directly opposite the main store and just yards from their original premises.
