Balgores also assisted 18% more landlords in renting their property and 32% more home movers in selling their property, compared with 2013. The company also saw increased demand from investors acquiring buy-to-let property compared with 2013.
Martin Gibbon, a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents and Group Director of Balgores Property Group, explains: “2014 was a great year for us and, thanks to all the hard work and commitment of our staff, we expanded the business, selling more properties, arranging more mortgages and finding more tenants for landlords than any year previously.
“Last year saw us open a new branch in South Woodham Ferrers and we expanded our management and operational teams by creating a number of new positions with the group."
“We also won 5 prestigious awards in 2014, including Gold at The Negotiator Awards for East of England Agency of the Year and Silver for Best Estate Agency to Work For at The Estate Agency of the Year Awards, in association with The Sunday Times and The Times.
“Our success is down to our growing market share and the great reputation we are gaining from our customers, with 96% claiming that they would recommend us, according to Allagents.co.uk.
“We have high hopes for 2015. We are in negotiations to open our 9th branch and will be recruiting further staff through the year, to manage our continued business growth.”
