Connells Group has repeated its claim, made in recent months in the light of trading figures, that it is now the “market leading estate agency business in the UK.”
It says that it is the most profitable agency, having made £26.2m pre-tax profits in the first half of 2019 and £56.9m in the whole of 2018.
It also states that it sold 66,000 properties in 2018 - more than any other estate agent.
And it claims that, based on Rightmove data on new instruction numbers, the gap between itself and four other competitors - which it chooses not to name - is widening as 2019 continues.
Connells Group estate agency chief executive David Plumtree says: “By combining traditional high street estate agency with the best people in the industry and the latest digital technologies, we are delivering both a great service to our customers and an environment for our branch teams to stand out from their competitors. Our clear and sustained market leadership shows that this is what the customer values.”
