A major regional estate agency is expanding with another physical office because it says the traditional High Street business model delivers the best customer service.
South Cumbria and North Lancashire based agency Hackney & Leigh is opening a new High Street office in Keswick.
This is the eighth office for the family-run firm which was founded in 1982, and specialises in selling and letting homes throughout the Lake District and surrounding areas.
The new Keswick office manager, Nick Elgey, says: “Despite the changes in recent years which has seen some estate agents choose to operate different models, we strongly believe that providing a local High Street office, with knowledgeable and friendly staff allows us to deliver the highest levels of customer service”.
The past 12 months have been busy for the firm, including the expansion of its office in Kendal, which now has twice the street frontage of before.
