Independent agent opens third branch just 18 months after launch

Independent estate agency Hat and Home has opened its third branch just 18 months after launching the business.

Hat and Home launched in February last year with a branch in Wokingham, followed  just nine months later by a branch in Crowthorne.

It opened its third branch this week, in the thriving Berkshire town of Bracknell. 


The 2000 sq ft premises in the award-winning Lexicon retail centre features Hat and Home’s signature bowler hat lights, exposed brick walls, living moss wall and framed Paul Young album.  

The design brief was to create a welcoming environment which captured the imagination of the public, a healthy and positive workspace for the team and to reflect our brand values.

The sales operation will be headed by Annabelle Blythe who has worked across Berkshire, and more recently in the fast-paced West London Market. 


She said: “Bracknell is a home from home for me having lived and worked in the area.  The market has seen significant price growth over the past two years and I can’t wait to help our clients achieve the best possible price for their homes.”

Liz Gamlen oversees the lettings division for Hat and Home and will be focussing on the growth of market share in Bracknell. 

Director Luke Strzadala has been involved in estate agency in the local area for a decade and as a local resident knows exactly what Bracknell has to offer, adding: “Fantastic schools, plenty of green open spaces and a plethora of leisure facilities make Bracknell a superb place to live and work.  

“We are delighted to bring Hat and Home to the town to offer local homeowners a contemporary and dynamic approach to the sale or let of their property.”

Founder Ben Gee added: “Bracknell is a great fit for Hat and Home as it borders our two existing offices in Wokingham and Crowthorne.  The regeneration of Bracknell town centre over the past five years has supported the growth of housing stock in the town which attracts a wide demographic of home movers.”
