Dexters says it now has 60 offices including 28 in central London - and has declared itself to be "the leading independent agency across London.
The first office opened in 1993 in Twickenham and the business has grown from 16 to over 60 branches across London; this includes the recently acquired and rebranded 28 offices of other smaller independents such as Beaney Pearce in Chelsea and Brian Lack in St John's Wood as well as establishing new offices in the City and Docklands.
The firm claims to have had £100m invested in it over the past eight years and says it has achieved consistent annual growth of 26 per cent in that period. It has a turnover in the region of £70m and states it "will record an operating profit of £15m in 2016.”
It employs some 1,200 people, sells 3,000 properties annually and has over 20,000 London landlords as clients. The firm says it spends 10 times the industry average on staff training.
