New franchise partners, Sam Lakin and Pete Croft, have acquired three Hunters businesses from previous owners, Nicola Simmonds and Iain Simmonds, who are now looking forward to retirement.

The duo has taken on Hunters Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey.

Pete has worked in the property industry for the last 10 years, including as a Lettings Manager for Hunters, where he then moved up to an Operations Manager role for the Hunters group. Sam has worked in the property industry for the last 10 years, most recently as an Operations Manager for the Hunters Group.

Pete Croft commented: “We look forward to operating the Hunters Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey businesses, building on Nicola and Iain’s hard work to establish such a strong reputation in the local area. This is an exciting next step in our careers and has been an ambition for some time now, having previously supported the growth of other franchisees. With the support of The Property Franchise Group, including access to market-leading ongoing training and development opportunities, we look forward to sustained success in the future.”

Jayne Twiddle, National Operations Director at Hunters, added: “The continued growth of our people is a core pillar of our business, with Sam and Pete embodying this ambitious spirit. We look forward to the continued success of the Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey businesses under new stewardship, building on the fantastic roots created by Nicola and Iain Simmonds.”
