Residence Index has been selling high-end residences and villas since 2009, having grown from a single office in the Maslak business district of Istanbul, to 5 offices covering the key residential districts of the city, while working with partners to cover other areas of Istanbul. We are proud to have one of the largest portfolios of high-end property available for sale or rent, of any real estate business in Turkey. Over the last 10 years we have grown to a position where we have sold / rented over 6500 properties and are currently securing an average of 4 agreements per day.

UK Manager James Pigott


Are at the centre of our business. How we work is important to us and differentiates us from other real estate agencies. We take great care to understand what the customer is looking for including the location, style, special features, view and so on.

We simplify things, by not overwhelming our clients with options, but taking time to select only the most suitable. We are also proud to have built up a loyal base of returning customers who rent / buy / sell through us again and again, including investors and individuals upgrading their home. We are also in a privileged position where we only do limited advertising and instead have new customers coming to us through referrals and through our website.


Partnerships with vendors and developers are aboltuely critical to us and a key part of our success. We often work with partners on new projects, at the plan stage, advising on pricing, styles, sizes and likely demand. We manage the sale, rental and management of projects for some of the largest developers in Istanbul.

Our goal is to establish long term partnerships, which are mutually beneficial. We are always looking to grow and widen our reach, so we are keen to hear from vendors and developers who have quality real estate to either rent or sell, either as individual units or entire projects, both in Turkey but in other locations throughout the World.
