Seel and Co, one of Wales’ oldest independent auction houses, estate and letting agents and chartered surveyors, with 22 staff, has been acquired by Jeffrey Ross estate agents.
Seel and Co’s outgoing Managing Director Tony Seel will stay on as a consultant for a while. The company was established by Tony’s great grandfather in 1898. After the sale, Seel and Co will continue to operate independently.
Ross Hooper-Nash, Managing Director of Jeffrey Ross – which has four branches across Cardiff said, “I have long been an admirer of Seel and Co and believe it has great potential in the real estate market in south Wales. The business perfectly complements the current offering we have at Jeffrey Ross.”
Outgoing MD, Tony Seel said,
“I have been contemplating the next stage in the development of Seel and Co and I am delighted with this outcome.
“Finding the right match for Seel and Co hasn’t been an easy task but I believe that in Ross we have found a person whose values and approach to business mirror those of our own. I am looking forward to seeing Seel and Co move forward and grow.”
