History of Vinieris Real Estate
Adonis & George Vinieris, born and raised on the island of Kefalonia, founded ‘Vinieris Real Estate’ in 2002, after recognising the need for a modern, dynamic and forward thinking estate agency to serve the emerging property market of Kefalonia, following Greece’s entry into the Euro, and the opening up of the Greek market to foreign investors. Vinieris Real Estate opened their first office, located on the prestigious Harbour Front in Argostoli, and it would prove to be a successful venture in many ways.
Due to the success of the company, it had soon outgrown its initial office, and the next obvious move was expand the business, and look for larger premises. In 2005 the opportunity arose to move just a few metres away from the original location, into a larger, prestigious head office, again strategically positioned directly on the Harbour Front. Despite the expansion, Adonis and George Vinieris were still able to oversee the day to day management of the company with the same drive, care and attention, born out of a passion for Kefalonia.
To further enhance the customer-led focus, 2006 saw the formation of a UK based sister company, Vinieris Kefalonian Properties Ltd, located in the heart of England. Not only acting as an additional market place for resale property, it also gives the company an invaluable link between Kefalonia and the UK.
Vinieris Developments was founded in 2011 to cater for the growing number of clients wishing to build high quality, luxury properties in Kefalonia. Using experience gained from helping early clients to build their own properties, Vinieris Developments quickly gained a reputation for building very high end properties, with quality finishes, within a budget and timescale to suit their client’s needs.
The natural step next was to offer clients of Vinieris Developments, a service to ensure their luxury properties are fully serviced and taken care of, whilst the owners themselves were not based in Kefalonia. Vinieris Property Management was formed precisely for this reason and has grown from strength to strength, offering a service which encompasses all aspects of property management and maintenance.
In 2012 Vinieris Real Estate constructed and moved into their luxurious new purpose built head office in Argostoli, continuing with the prestigious location of the Harbour Front. This modern, architecturally designed property is the culmination of over a decade long company evolvement into the largest Real Estate & Development group on the island of Kefalonia.
A custom built exhibition stand was opened within the main Terminal of Kefalonia Airport in 2013 and operates as an information and sales hub for everyone visiting the island. Both innovative and informative, the stand has proved to be a great success.
Final touches are being made to another purpose built office, which will house the Development and Property Management side of the company, a step which will ensure the company continues to stay ahead of its competitors in every way.
During the history of Vinieris, we have endeavoured to offer our clients the highest possible service levels, and have given them opportunities to showcase and to view properties in every way possible, using an array of multi media options. With this ethos at the very forefront of our business, we have continually taken exhibitor stands at the main overseas property exhibitions in the UK and more recently, in Asia, and have exclusively marketed Kefalonia as one of the top destinations and investment opportunities in Europe. We are very proud to include the following exhibitions in our list of venues: ‘A Place in the Sun Live’, The Luxury Property Show’, The Investor Show’ & ‘OPP Live Asia’.
