Marsh & Parsons is opening a new branch in Shoreditch next month, adding to its existing network of 22 offices across London.
This will be the first of four new offices Marsh & Parsons plans to unveil in 2015, and marks its continued expansion across the capital. The new branch will cover an extensive area including Shoreditch, Victoria Park, Whitechapel, Stepney, Aldgate, Bethnal Green, Hoxton and Haggerston.
Located on the prominent central thoroughfare of Bethnal Green Road, the site has undergone a cutting edge refurbishment to the tune of £350,000, including the installation of an ultramodern media wall.
To celebrate the opening on 16 February, Marsh & Parsons will be offering homeowners in the area a special 0% sales fee for the first three months. This represents a considerable discount from the typical 2% commission and the estate agent claims it will save customers an average of around £18,000 per sales.
Peter Rollings, chief executive at Marsh & Parsons, said: Marsh & Parsons has been a respected property market heavyweight across South West and Prime Central areas of London since 1856, and we're excited to extend this reputation and presence eastwards. This is just the first step in the new phase of ambitious growth of the company. Our 0% commission campaign is just a taster of the high calibre customer service and results we deliver to our clients, and is a fitting way to introduce ourselves to the new neighbourhood.
The sales office will be headed up by Mark Kempson, a local resident who has worked in the property industry for more than 10 years; most recently in neighbouring Islington, which also encompassed the Shoreditch and Hackney areas.
Kempson said: Marsh & Parsons is an exceptional brand, with a long and impressive heritage, and Shoreditch is the perfect fit for its latest expansion plans. I'm excited to come on board and put my local knowledge and expertise to good use.
Will Copeland will take up the role of lettings manager. Armed with a background in sales, he first joined Marsh & Parsons' Clapham office in 2011, and assisted in the successful launch of their nearby Camden branch last year.
