Independent estate and lettings agent Hunters is continuing its expansion across the UK with Lincolnshire’s leading estate agency, Turner Evans Stevens, joining the Group.
With eight branches across the county, including the main towns and cities of Lincoln, Grimsby and Skegness, this brings the total number of Hunters’ independently owned branches to 125 nationwide.
Kevin Hollinrake, Managing Director and Hunters Property Group founder, said: “This is fantastic news and we are delighted to expand our presence in Lincolnshire and partner with what is the most established and reputable property agents in the region. The founding partners and staff at Turner Evans Stevens bring a wealth of experience and local knowledge and we look forward to what promises to be a very successful future working together under the Hunters umbrella.”
Turner Evans Stevens have firm foundations in the property market in Lincolnshire for both sales and lettings, having operated a successful business for over 40 years.
The eight-strong network encompasses offices in Lincoln, Grimsby, Skegness, Spilsby, Mablethorpe, Sutton on Sea, Louth, and Woodhall Spa.
Gareth Evans, Director of Turner Evans Stevens, said: “Roderic Turner, Phil Stevens and I decided that joining Hunters provides an opportunity for the Turner Evans Stevens Group to continue to develop our business and enhance and expand the service that we are able to provide to our clients and customers. Our excellent team will remain the same but our clients will benefit from being part of a wider network of over 100 branches giving a national presence.”
Hunters already has one established branch in Scunthorpe; the additional eight Turner Evans Stevens offices will now cement the brand across the county.
Hunters has experienced rapid growth and development in the past ten years, both organically and through acquisitions, to become the UK’s fastest-growing independent estate agency network.
A Spokeman for Hunters said: “Having opened its first branch 21 years ago in York, the company is a prominent and well-respected force, offering expert local advice to those looking to buy, rent, let or sell a wide range of properties. Hunters operate throughout the UK including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Middlesbrough and Hull and all areas in between.”
Adding: “Hunters Property Group has a hugely talented team with enviable technology, marketing and training infrastructure that is geared up to support its network growth.”
Andy Bushell, Sales Director for Hunters Property Group also commented: “We believe that our customers are best served by estate agents who own and run their own businesses, supported by a strong national brand. That way our customers are dealing directly with a local expert and business owner who has a vested interest in ensuring its success and delivering high levels of service”.
The company is expected to have over 140 offices by the end of the year with a plan for further growth to around 500 offices in five years’ time.
