Berriman Eaton is moving into Worcestershire. The agent currently operates in Wolverhampton, South Staffordshire and Shropshire and has joined forces with two local experts to invest £150,000 into setting up a dedicated office at Churchill & Blakedown Golf Club.
Debbie Fellows and Julia Simonds have joined the firm to head-up BE Worcestershire and will be responsible for selling and letting prestigious properties across the county, from Hagley in the East to Cleobury Mortimer in the West, the beautiful village of Kinver in the north and to Droitwich Spa in the South.
The duo, who previously ran the Bromsgrove and Kidderminster offices for Andrew Grant for the past fifteen years, bring with them extensive local knowledge and expertise at valuation and identifying the perfect buyer.
“With the sad closure of the Andrew Grant offices in June, we felt there was a gap in the market for a bespoke, high-end estate agency selling the cream of the county,” explained Debbie.
“It was an easy decision for us to join the team as Directors. We love the firm’s ethos, its reputation, integrity and track record for selling beautiful homes and apartments. Now it’s time to build the BE brand in a previously untapped area rich in potential.”
Julia added, “Each buyer has different needs, from being near the best schools or a railway station, to having a dedicated work-from-home space. Understanding buyers’ needs is paramount to ensuring a smooth sale with the best price.”
The company, which employs 25 people, has seen a major increase in demand for properties following lockdown, recording 400 sales worth £165m.
