BARNES is one of the world’s leading companies specialized in the sale and leasehold of premium & luxury residential real estate.
BARNES was founded by Heidi Barnes and Thibault De Saint Vincent. Everything began in 1994 when Heidi opened a real estate company in London aimed at helping international clients seeking to move to London. Due to its success, Heidi Barnes decided to open a new office in Paris the following year, in 1995. As for Thibault De Saint Vincent, after having worked for over 15 years at the helm of residential real estate companies in France and the United States, Thibault De Saint Vincent noticed in early 2000 that the luxury real estate market was going global.
In 2004, BARNES was off and running, combining the anglo-American style of Heidi Barnes with the entrepreneurial approach of Thibault De Saint Vincent, structured around a visionary idea:
providing international clients with unique access to exclusive properties located in the most beautiful places in the world.
In 2006, Richard Tzipine joined the company as managing director. His experience as a company manager in a large media group allowed him to develop the Paris office into a leader in luxury and exclusive residential real estate.
