Manchester-based sister firms Sequre Property Investment and Sequre International have extended their office space thanks rising demand for UK buy to let and Spanish property.
Increasing their office space from 5,000 square feet to over 8,400 square feet at their HQ in Sale, the Sequre firms have also launched three new Spanish offices. The workforce has risen 45 to 70 in less than 12 months after a 44 per cent surge in enquiries in 2016.
“We launched Sequre Property Investment with a team of six people back in 2013; now less than four years later we’ve continued to grow our UK buy to let business in addition to cementing our international presence on two of the most popular coastlines in Spain” says managing director Graham Davidson.
Westcountry agents Stags, which already has 20 branches, has acquired Ward & Chowen, an agency in the Dartmoor town of Tavistock.
Ward & Chowen has been operating for over 180 years and its office will link with existing Stags branches in nearby locations such as Okehampton, Launceston and Plymouth.
Meanwhile in Leicestershire, independent agency Alexanders is opening a fourth office at Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
Handling sales, land and development along with new homes, this will complement existing branches in Market Bosworth, Loughborough and West Bridgford.
“The town has seen massive expansion over the last 20 years and is a real buzzing community" says John Alexander, company chairman.
