About Us

How It Started

Well, it all started at the North Pole..... or very close to it anyway.  British-Owned Property Abroad is run by Dominic and Rebecca Hilton, who met while on a polar expedition.  Now married with two children and living in Devon, the Arctic sea ice seems a rather distant memory.

Dominic and Rebecca are part of the team at La Résidence, the French property estate agency.  After several years selling property in France, we spotted a trend - British buyers generally gravitate, often subconsciously, towards British owned homes. Queue the lightbulb moment and the concept of British-Owned Property Abroad (BOPA) was born.  

The idea is to expand on the success of La Résidence in France, and offer an international property marketing and estate agency service for all British vendors, wherever in the world their properties for sale are located.    

Our office is in the middle of Dartmoor, Devon so if you're in the area, pop by for a coffee and say hello.
