Independent Kent agent Miles & Barr took a musical approach to an office relocation last weekend.
Miles & Barr, which has 12 sales and three lettings branches across East Kent, enlisted the help of the Herne Bay Youth Theatre for its latest move.
The agent is marking its 20th year in the coastal town and decided to move across the road to a more spacious location on the corner of the High Street and William Street.
The prime location also provides Miles & Barr’s Exclusive Homes division with a dedicated customer-facing ‘shop window’, as the number of high-end properties in Herne Bay’s housing market has grown significantly over the past five years, the firm said.
The theatre group, sponsored by Miles & Barr, performed a medley of songs from the Bugsy Malon theatre production it is has been performing to mark the occasion.
Mark Brooks, chief executive of Miles & Barr, said, “We are thrilled to be celebrating our 20th anniversary in Herne Bay, and the relocation of our Herne Bay office to a larger and more visible location means that we can continue to grow and deliver another 20 years of standout sales and lettings services.
“The office has established a great reputation which has made them a go to agent in this popular seaside town.
“Our high street move marks our second relocation in Herne Bay this year, following the opening of our newly refurbished head office at The Links, Herne Business Park, in January 2022.
“We are proud to be a part of Herne Bay’s community, as well as being one of Herne Bay’s biggest employers.
Adam Mansfield, branch manager of Miles & Barr Herne Bay, said: “The team has excelled over the past two years and risen to the many challenges that the housing market has dealt.
“The new branch ensures that we can continue to provide our clients with a high-quality level of service, as well as being able to adapt to the changing landscape of Herne Bay’s property market with the continued growth of Exclusive Homes.
“We invite everyone to come in and see the new space. As a proud sponsor of Herne Bay Youth Theatre, we were delighted that an intimate group of performers helped us to mark our opening.”
