The regional agency group which master-minded the Say No To Rightmove campaign has made a big commitment to the future of High Street branches with a new 3,000 square foot office in a town centre.
The Acorn Group, which also operates the John Payne and Langford Russell brands in London and the south east, has launched the new office in the Kent town of Strood. It is the group’s 37th office.
Coronavirus had put a temporary halt to The Acorn Group’s expansion along the north Kent corridor which had seen it open eight new offices in the past two years - but now the expansion programme is back on course.
“This is the result of many months of hard work and planning” explains Rob Sargent, Acorn Group chief executive and leader of the Say No To Rightmove campaign.
“We are strong believers in the High Street model and our airy, well-spaced office is designed to be Covid-secure for the safety of both our staff and our clients” he continues.
“If anything, the events of 2020 have increased this migratory demand as homeowners and tenants, who have witnessed the perceived shortcomings of urban living, look to find a home with more space, inside and out.”
“With its size and prominent High Street position, Strood will become a satellite head-office offering a full range of property-related services and continuing the philosophy of providing our clients with a truly one-stop-shop for all their family’s property requirements. It will also be a springboard to opening several new offices in the surrounding areas in the coming months.”
