International Agents with a Difference

“Elysium” distils to mean “a place in which to live a blessed and happy life”; a bold and aspirational objective, for sure! I and my team of international partners invite you to ‘dip a toe in the water’ and reach out to us to start the dialogue.

A Guiding Hand

Essentially, and in short, we are agents inasmuch as we work in an introductory role between buyer and seller. Our fees are usually paid exclusively by the seller, be they a private owner or, as is often the case, a property developer; we can act for buyers on search and acquisition if required, but that is not our usual modus operandi. However, the international property scene has its own complexities for UK buyers and we have carefully selected the partners we work with in Cyprus (South that is, the European Republic of; not the north), Greece, the beautiful Greek islands, and perhaps in the future other coverage in the Mediterranean basin.

Agency Partners

Our agency partners in Greece and Cyprus are formally licenced and qualified agents with their own (sometimes lifelong) local/in-country knowledge base. They are hand picked by me and have a mighty depth of both local knowledge and relevant market experience. Feel free to reach out to me personally to discuss this further, if you wish, either through email exchange, telephone conversation, or face to face meeting in the UK (Surrey/London) or indeed Cyprus where I enjoy a home in beautiful Limassol.

Experience Counts

I’ve spent my entire business career working in property, starting in Estate Agency as a trainee in the early 1970’s, progressing to running a corporate chain of Estate Agents with 160 branches across southern UK for a decade, then starting my own business based in Surrey which included an international arm that I personally founded. I retired from that business in 2021 and handed the leadership reins to my son and daughter in order to spend my time between Surrey and Limassol. It’s become a natural progression to use that accumulated knowledge and the plethora of Cypriot and Greek property contacts to establish MyElysium which is focused on more than just selling properties… it’s about helping like minded international movers secure a ‘home from home’ in another country and to assist with the inevitable complexities of that journey to enable a smooth and even enjoyable process. I achieved just that for myself and will bend over backwards to achieve it for you!

Stephen is a seasoned property professional with an interesting background that has taken him to some fascinating corners of the world. From his early days growing up in Newfoundland, Thailand, and Malawi, Stephen developed a deep appreciation for diverse cultures and lifestyles.

In the 1990s, Stephen found himself on a commercial crocodile farm in Tanzania, where he first explored entrepreneurial pursuits. This experience ignited a series of endeavours, such as establishing a successful rice and maize mill in Mozambique and expanding into exporting raw cashew nuts.

Upon returning to the UK, Stephen’s career in property flourished. With a career spanning some 30 years in senior roles within UK estate agencies, he has become adept at matching people to their ideal properties and is a member of the National Association of Estate Agents. 

For the past twelve years, Stephen has been at the helm of a thriving estate agency in Wimbledon Village, Southwest London. After taking a break from work earlier this year, Stephen couldn’t sit still for long and joined the MyElysium team. 

His passion for exploration extends beyond business. Having spent many holidays in Greece, the Greek islands, and Cyprus, he has developed a deep affection for the region’s breath-taking landscapes, vibrant culture, and welcoming people. Now, at the end of a fulfilling day’s work, Stephen savours nothing more than a cold Keo (Cypriot) beer while watching the sunset.

Whether it’s a villa on the Greek islands, a townhouse in Athens, or a seaside retreat in Cyprus you’re looking for, Stephen is looking forward to meeting you and assisting you on your property journey.
