HK exodus tilts real estate agencies to emigration services

Posted by Ed 23 days ago 

As Hong Kong residents move overseas to escape China's political crackdown, real estate companies see new opportunities in areas such as assisting with visa applications and brokering property transactions.

Interest in leaving Hong Kong is the highest since the lead-up to the former British colony's 1997 return to China, said Andrew Lo, a local emigration consultant who has worked in the industry for over three decades.

"This is the biggest emigration boom in Hong Kong's history," he said. "People from different levels of the society, aged from 18 to 80, are all talking about emigration."

Lo, the managing director of Anlex Services, said many panicked Hong Kongers have been finding ways to "flee from the city" in the past year and a half.
