Two 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”.
