Kevin Hollinrake - the founder of Hunters estate agency and now Conservative MP for Thirsk, Malton & Filey - says he is supporting staying in the EU.
In reference to the decision of London Mayor Boris Johnson to support Britain leaving the EU, Hollinrake yesterday tweeted: “Big fan of Boris but believe staying in EU will keep people across the country stronger, safer and better off. #Strongerin.”
Hollinrake, who was elected last May, founded Hunters back in 1992.
Yesterday we reported on the first agency figures to state their views on the EU Referendum taking place on June 23.
Russell Quirk, founder and chief executive of online agency eMoov, claims house prices may drop by as much as five per cent in the UK leaves. Meanwhile Trevor Abrahmsohn of high-end London agency Glentree says “there is no reason to believe that the prevailing economic policies will change very much” in the event of a Brexit - so he doubts the housing market will be affected by the vote, whichever way it goes.
Dominic Agace, chief executive of franchise network Winkworth, says London’s appeal will continue to international and domestic buyers whatever the result, although Winkworth’s international department head David King warned there may be some implications for UK buyers in western Europe if the vote is to leave the EU.
