Alexander & Co property services group has acquired Buckinghamshire estate agent Ella Homes. The move will further establish Alexander & Co as the go-to agency in the region, with additional offices in Buckingham and Winslow.

One of the oldest and largest independent estate agencies across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Middlesex, Alexander & Co opened its first office in Dunstable 50 years ago and employs 70 staff and represents 3,000 local landlords and over 1,000 buyers and sellers.

Last year, five of the estate agents in the group – Bannisters in Bicester, Claire Lloyd Properties in Aylesbury, Hartwells in Aylesbury and Wing and Baker Pearce in Harrow – all brought under the Alexander and Co banner.

Ella Homes, however, will continue to operate under its own name, retaining the team that has grown the agency to become one of the most respected within the local area.

Group CEO, George Thomas said, “We’re thrilled to have Ella Homes join us. Ella Homes’ long-earned experience and expertise in its local area, as well as its first class service and trusted relationships with its customers, will be extremely valuable assets for our group, which strives to keep the personal touch at the centre of our offering as we continue to grow the business.”

  1. George Thomas and his management team, lead by Paul has in a very short period of time out together a strategic plan which sees them in a really good position in their key areas.

    Living in Winslow, I am a little spoilt because there are two exceptional agents, Simon Wilkinson of the Wilkinson Partnership, who is heavily involved with government initiatives to regulate the property industry and speed it’s processes, who has a really good and highly respected agency.

    And Ella with the two Mark’s also had prior to the strategic purchase, a very good residential sales and letting business.

    The only problem for me would be which board to have outside, maybe a case of dual agency, and let us see who gets the sale first?
