Water relief! Agent reopens after major leak closed office for six months

An estate agency in Backwell, North Somerset has celebrated the re-opening of its offices following a major water leak six months ago.

Parker’s Estate Agents and Letting Agents has been a familiar sight in Backwell Village since it opened in 1989 but when a water tank in the property above burst in January, its agents were forced to work remotely while major refurbishment works were carried out.

Now managers at the branch have thanked the local community for its patience with a celebration to mark the office re-opening.


Welcoming clients, landlords, tenants and local residents of Backwell, the party included refreshments and a few words from director Andrew Simmonds.

He said: “Our offices have had to undergo a huge refurbishment project to ensure the property is safe and welcoming again for our staff and customers. 

“The building was ripped back to its bare bones so it has taken a while for us to come back but we’re delighted now that it’s all come together.

“The whole team successfully worked remotely during this period with many local houses bought, sold and let but we love having a real presence within Backwell Village where we have been for so many years, in our prominent position on the crossroads.

“The re-opening also coincides with the appointment of our branch manager Simon Russell who is excited to help us grow the services we provide.”

As part of the opening celebrations Parker’s has launched a colouring competition for local children. 

Colouring sheets can be collected from the office and three winners will be selected from different age groups with each winner receiving an Amazon gift voucher.
