Balgores Property Group has recently acquired Woollens, estate agents that has been established in the Dagenham area for over 70 years.
Woollens’ sales and lettings office is located in Heathway, Dagenham, Essex and will take on the Balgores signage on early 2018. This acquisition takes Balgores Property Group to 12 sales and lettings offices across Essex and Kent.
Over the last 12 months, Balgores has seen its portfolio of managed properties grow by over 50%, as its award winning property management service continues to offer a first class service. Balgores sales departments have also achieved over 99.7% of asking price on properties.
Martin Gibbon, a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents and Group Director of Balgores Property Group explains: “We are delighted to have been able to purchase such a well respected company within the local area, which naturally links with our current offices within Havering and Essex.
“We now have 12 sales and lettings offices and over the last 12 months, we successfully opened our Ongar branch, gaining substantial market share. We have substantially expanded our customer care department in Chelmsford and strengthened our management department to cope with our growing portfolio.
“We have also rebranded our financial services to the Mortgage Advice Bureau which has been very well received by our customers, who now benefit from independent advice from a multi award winning national brand.
“Earlier this month, we won a gold award at the Estas for best regional lettings firm and silver for best branch in Hornchurch, on top of our five prestigious awards in 2016.
“Our success is down to our growing market share and the great reputation we are gaining from our customers, with 96% claiming that they would recommend us, according to Allagents.co.uk.
“We are looking forward to welcoming the Woollens team to our multi award winning group.”
