The BARNES Group

High-end international real estate

BARNES was founded by Heidi Barnes in 1994, when she opened a real estate company in London to assist international clients wishing to settle in the capital. It was so successful that Heidi Barnes decided to open a new office in Paris the following year. As in London, the success was immediate and in only a few years, BARNES became a reference in the real estate world.

After more than 15 years of running residential real estate companies in France and the United States, Thibault de Saint Vincent realized in the early 2000s that the luxury real estate market was becoming global. In 2004, BARNES was finally launched, combining the Anglo-Saxon American style of Heidi Barnes with the entrepreneurial spirit of Thibault de Saint Vincent, around a visionary idea: to offer its international clientele unique access to prestigious properties located in all the world's most beautiful addresses.
In 2006, Richard Tzipine joined the company as Managing Director. His experience as a business manager enabled him to propel the Paris office to the rank of leader in high-end and prestigious residential real estate.
