Connells has acquired the five-branch independent Paul Dubberley from property investment company Bond Wolfe.
Established in 1992, Paul Dubberley offers sales, lettings, property management, conveyancing, mortgage services through five high street branches in the Black Country and West Midlands.
It will continue trading under its existing name while all 31 employees will be retained; the acquisition takes Connells’ high street network total to nearly 180 branches.
“We are delighted to integrate such a successful and well-known local business into the Connells network,” says Elizabeth Brown, divisional managing director at Connells.
The purchase forms part of a wider initiative by Connells’ parent company, the Connells Group, which says it wants to grow its national network of branches and extend its regional footprint through acquisitions and a programme of new branch openings.
