Sheldon Bosley Knight Acquires Bishops Estate Agents

We are delighted to announce that Sheldon Bosley Knight has acquired Bishops Estate Agents in Kineton.

Bishops Estate Agents was established by Debbie Burrows in 1998. The branch is situated in a prominent location within Kineton village and covers residential sales in the South Warwickshire and North Oxfordshire areas.

The acquisition opportunity came at the perfect time for both parties at the end of 2019. As Debbie was planning to retire, we were seeking a new commercial base to cover the area between our Shipston and Leamington branches. Having worked in the industry for 40 years as the first Birmingham businesswoman to establish her own residential estate agents, Debbie is a well known and popular member of the local community. We hope to maintain the trusting relationship with Bishops’ loyal customers and continue serving the village community.

On the acquisition, Debbie said:

     “I’ve been proud to have served the local community for so many years during which time I’ve made many great friends. I look forward to supporting Mike and the Sheldon Bosley Knight team as a retired Estate Agent! Thank you for your business over the last 25 years.”

We are pleased to announce that the new branch will be managed by Sara Jordan, who will be joined by sales negotiator Kathy Molan. Sara is a returning member of staff at the company, bringing with her an impressive 15 years’ experience in local estate agency. Both Kineton residents, their local knowledge and friendly manner is already proving a great asset to the company. Sara announced:

     “I’m delighted to be returning and excited to lead a new team, where a professional and personal service will be my priority. We welcome residents to pop in and meet the team.”

Kineton is now our seventh location; joining branches in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth, Evesham and Shipston-Upon-Stour, and our brand new head office at Stratford Business and Technology Park.

We’re proud to be growing the Sheldon Bosley Knight brand and are looking forward to another exciting year in land and property!

Sales and lettings offices will remain open and fully supported in their current towns of Stratford-upon-Avon, Shipston-on-Stour, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and Evesham.

The new Head Office, on the Stratford Business & Technology Park, will be home to Sheldon Bosley Knight’s extensive professional service teams – Planning & Architectural, Commercial, Rural Land Agency and Block Management – as well as Office Administration.

Bringing these key divisions together under one roof will allow the company to work as one team.

By working more closely, staff can share resources, knowledge and expertise to improve services for clients, as Director Marcus Faulkner says:

This is a landmark moment for Sheldon Bosley Knight.

“Having more than half our staff under one roof will enable us to optimise internal operations and improve our services to the benefit of our clients.  With our multi-discipline approach, wide geographical reach and unrivalled local knowledge, Sheldon Bosley Knight provides a comprehensive range of property services coupled with a highly personalised service to support all your property needs.

The new Head Office will also be more accessible for clients and staff, a modern new base to look to the future, for a company with more than 150 years of heritage.

Sheldon Bosley Knight – Exceeding the Standard

Sheldon Bosley Knight

SBK Logo for WordPress GIFTwo of the most prominent estate agents in Warwickshire are joining forces to offer an unrivalled suite of services to the region. Effective 1st August 2016, Sheldon Bosley together with Knight & Rennie will become Sheldon Bosley Knight.  

The new business will operate out of the four existing centres of Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Shipston-on-Stour and Stratford-upon-Avon and will deliver a comprehensive range of property related professional services. 

This merger comes close on the heels of the recent joint venture between the two firms for a New Homes estate agency service.  The New Homes division, is managed by Oliver Knight who said “we have long regarded Sheldon Bosley as an ideal partner to complement the Lettings and Residential Sales Agency services provided by Knight & Rennie Ltd.  This is a golden opportunity for both firms to expand to offer new services to our established clients, and to forge strength and depth across all types of property.”

Sheldon Bosley has traditionally established its roots in Rural Land Agency, but has developed a business with a complete package of property related services with a significant and expanding planning and architectural division supporting smaller building projects to strategic development land initiatives.  James Walton, a Partner with Sheldon Bosley said “we are very excited at the prospect of this new venture which takes us forward and gives opportunity for us to expose our range of services to a new and extensive clientele, for whom Knight & Rennie have already demonstrated a quality of service and which can now be reinforced for those who require building surveys, commercial property advice and management, as well as valuations for tax and loan security.  The firm will continue to trade as a firm of Chartered Surveyors regulated by the RICS, and it is expected that changes in branding will be a strong topic of conversation amongst our friends, clients and competitors.”

Sam Russell who is also transferring his responsibilities from Sheldon Bosley to become a Director of the new “SBK” company, endorsed the comments made above by his fellow Directors “our new company will have strength in depth, will continue to commit to the highest possible standards and will seek to both satisfy the needs of our existing clients and those needs of new clients who can only be impressed by the quality and range of services offered by the new company”.
