Hunters expands in the Northeast with a new office in Consett, County Durham
Hunters, the UK’s fastest growing independent estate agency group, has expanded its reach in the northeast by opening a new office in Consett. Once at the very heart of the British steel industry, the town has undergone an intense programme of regeneration and today is a popular residential area for professionals commuting to Newcastle upon Tyne, Durham and Hexham, as well as families looking to settle in the nearby picturesque villages of the Derwent Valley.
Andy Bushell, Sales Director at Hunters Property Group, said: “Since 1992, we have grown rapidly, both organically and through acquisitions, to become the UK’s fastest-growing independent estate agency network with over 100 branches nationwide. To broaden our horizons in the northwest is extremely exciting, and over the next few years we plan to continue looking for new franchise opportunities as we widen our reach across the country.”
Graeme Dimmick, the new franchisee of Hunters Consett founded The Better Home Company in 2007, a thriving lettings agency which managed a portfolio of over 300 properties in the local area. In taking the opportunity to join the Hunters network, Graeme and his team will now offer a full sales and lettings service with the same enthusiasm and service levels, and combine existing skills and local knowledge with the Hunters brand.
Graeme Dimmick comments: “I have always eagerly followed the expansion of the Hunters network, and now seemed like the right time to join as a franchisee, as we look to expand our services to include sales. It is an exciting time for the Consett property market, as residential developers continue to regenerate steelworks sites, and with the support that Hunters are able to provide in key areas of marketing, technology, training and communication, we hope to see our well-established team become market leaders in the local vicinity. I am keen to expand our team, property portfolio and reach in the coming years by opening another office in Durham.”
