Romans has acquired the Bramptons branches at Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross in Buckinghamshire, marking the Group’s seventh acquisition of 2015.
All members of staff at Bramptons have joined Romans under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, otherwise known as TUPE, including the firm’s Director, Peter Scott.
Commenting on the merger, Scott said, “The decision to sell to Romans was not one that was taken lightly; we are all extremely passionate about property and have thoroughly enjoyed working across South Buckinghamshire building Brampton’s reputation as a reliable and trusted estate and lettings agency.
“Therefore, it was imperative that we sold to a company with the same passion as us, but who could also bring additional experience and investment to improve the service our clients, current and future, receive.”
As part of the Romans Group, Bramptons will now be able to offer clients a property auctions sales room, surveying, conveyancing, planning expertise, and access to new homes developments, in addition to its existing sales and lettings service.
Richard Frost (MARLA), Lettings Director at the Gerrards Cross office, has expressed his delight at the decision to join Romans and have access “to an established network of buyers and tenants” as well as all of “the extra resources a larger company can provide”.
Both offices have undergone complete transformations, including a change of name from Bramptons to Romans.
Established in 1987, Romans now has 27 sales and lettings branches across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Middlesex, Oxfordshire and Surrey, and its ambitious growth plans have led to several other exciting acquisitions in the local area, including Sherriff Mountford in Burnham, Atlantis in Reading, Campsie in Windsor, Staines-upon-Thames and West Drayton, and Jacksons in Henley-on-Thames.
Peter Fuller, Managing Director of Romans Lettings, said, “With our extensive acquisition experience in the south east, capacity and financing facility, we are ready and able to consider any acquisition opportunity and plan to accelerate our rate of growth this year and in the years to come.”
