Gilbert & Thomas, established in 1998, is a local, independently run estate agents covering the county of Rutland and surrounding areas from its offices in Oakham and Uppingham. The company is recognised as one of Rutland’s leading estate agents with more than 25 years local experience.
Gilbert & Thomas will continue to trade under its existing brand with Founder and Managing Director Vaughan Gilbert remaining in charge of operations.
Gilbert commented, “The acquisition by Sharman Quinney represents an exciting opportunity for myself and the team who will continue to provide the high level of personal service the homeowners of Rutland and the surrounding area have become accustomed to. The acquisition will enable us to offer additional services to the people of Rutland who have supported the Gilbert & Thomas brand, helping to make it the success it has been over the last seventeen years and for many years to come.”
