Hi I’m Keith, originally from Nova Scotia with Canadian/Irish ancestry.
I’ve lived and worked as a teacher in 3 different Oriental countries before settling with my family in Istanbul. I have been sourcing, dealing and selling property in central Istanbul for near 10 years, building up a sizable property portfolio for myself and helping many others get involved on the way.
Istanbul is the living breathing soul of trade, millenniums of commercial trading between the East and West have engrained a culture of ‘doing the deal’. My fluency in Turkish and years of on the ground property deals carried out over a glass of chai have gained me respect and won me admission to the Elite Istanbul School of hard knocks negotiation.
This blog aims to chronicle the everyday life and culture of property sourcing and dealing in Istanbul, showing how and where its done and inviting the reader to get involved through our real estate sales at: www.lilimont-istanbul-realestate.com
