The UK may be seen as a less attractive place to live and work, but it remains desirable. Research from KPMG shows two thirds of EU citizens in their home countries still view the UK as an attractive place to work and well over half say they would move to Britain if the right opportunity arose.

Better work opportunities, diverse culture, and an open society are cited as the big draw cards so will this still be the case post Brexit? 

Join us to hear from Colliers International's Head of Valuation and Advisory Services, Russell Francis on the trends of the UK's real estate market post-Brexit.
