Strutt & Parker announced the acquisition of Edwards & Elliott, a Surrey and Berkshire-based residential estate agency. Edwards & Elliott has three offices in Ascot, Sunningdale and Windlesham, with 20 staff offering sales and lettings services as well as a new homes department.
The addition of the three new offices to Strutt & Parker’s network will take its number of residential estate agency teams throughout the UK to 43, enhancing their presence in Berkshire and Surrey, where they have established offices in Newbury, Pangbourne, Guildford, Farnham and Haslemere.
Guy Robinson, Head of National Estate Agency at Strutt & Parker said: “Ascot, Sunningdale and Windlesham are particularly desirable commuter locations with strong residential markets and quality homes. The acquisition of Edwards & Elliott and its team of local experts gives us the perfect platform for our expansion into these areas. I am looking forward to working with the teams to harness their experience and market knowledge together with our national and international reach to offer the best possible service to both new and existing clients.”
In July 2015 Strutt & Parker acquired estate agency Roberts Newby, a Buckinghamshire-based practice with offices in Gerrards Cross and Chalfont St Giles. The acquisition of Edwards & Elliot and Roberts Newby represents part of Strutt & Parker’s expansion strategy for its residential estate agency business.
Andy Martin, Senior Partner at Strutt & Parker, said: “Acquiring successful and established operators such as Edwards & Elliot and Roberts Newby is a key part of our continued plan for growth, particularly in the Home Counties. Edwards & Elliott brings with it an in-depth understanding of the markets in Ascot, Sunningdale and Windlesham, which, along with its track record, will be essential in establishing Strutt & Parker in these areas”.
