Mark Annett & Company established as Chartered Surveyors in 2005, featured on BBC 2’s estate agency documentary “Under Offer: Estate Agents on the Job”, and quickly became a trusted brand synonymous with specialising in period and character homes in the beautiful Cotswold market town.
From a customer service point of view, nothing is changing. Mark will remain on hand to offer residents advice on all aspects of property but with the support of the wider group which specialises in planning, architecture, rural, commercial, lettings and block management. Sheldon Bosley Knight brings state of the art systems including propertyfile which benefits buyers and sellers alike, along with their own website attracting over 10,000 visitors a month.
Mark Annett said, “I am absolutely delighted to join Sheldon Bosley Knight. After 15 years of building a property business from scratch I am proud to move into another phase with the professional and technical support the 21st century demands, and which Sheldon Bosley Knight can provide. At Mark Annett & Company we have worked exceptionally hard in a very competitive market and I am certain there will be significant benefits for both firms working together in the future. On a personal basis it enables me to build on their successful multi discipline expertise gained over many years of practice. I look forward to all the advantages and opportunities this arrangement will create. In Chipping Campden we will not lose sight of the personal and friendly service which has been the cornerstone of Mark Annett & Company”.
Mike Cleary, Director, said, “Fresh from acquiring an office in Kineton and opening in Pershore, these are really exciting times for Sheldon Bosley Knight. Mark Annett and the area of Chipping Campden fits really well with our core marketplace and business ethics. Having a footprint that includes the Cotswolds will be a benefit to all our clients and it is an ideal location to roll out our multi-disciplined approach to advising on property matters. We have long admired Mark’s reputation and standing and are now delighted to have him on board alongside us.
Daniel Jackson, Director commented, “Post-lockdown, we have experienced an enormous increase in sales and general market activity, particularly enquiries from residents of larger towns and cities, wanting to move to the Cotswolds and surrounding area, have increased through a desire to ‘escape to the country’. The office will initially continue as a residential sales operation, but we plan to introduce our residential lettings presence, showcase our planning/class Q capabilities and expand into the local commercial business”.
Sheldon Bosley Knight now has eight offices across Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, with over 100 years of land and property experience in the area.
