Estate agents from London and New York are beating a path to wealthy buyers in China and Hong Kong to sell upmarket flats on their books.

In London, buyers from Hong Kong and the mainland led a £22 million (HK$282.6 million) Asian buying spree at luxury block NEO Bankside released for sale just last month.

And in New York, developers of luxury condominium project One York have pinned their hopes on a wealthy Chinese buyer taking ownership of the building's US$34 million penthouse, while agents selling apartments in Manhattan House on the city's Upper East Side are planning a roadshow to key cities on the mainland to help shift their allocations.
