Three experienced property specialists have joined forces to launch an exciting new era for a long-established Shropshire residential lettings agency.
Directors Andrew Rowson and Lindsey Medley, supported by business partner Anwar Ali, have acquired the Martin & Co franchise for Shrewsbury and its surrounding areas.
Commenting on the acquisition; Andrew said: “Together with Anwar and Lindsey, I am delighted to announce that we have acquired the Martin & Co franchise for the Shrewsbury area. We are looking forward to working with property owners and landlords across the region and providing a friendly, efficient and professional service.
“Initially we will focus on our existing customers but we are ambitious and we’re aiming to double the portfolio within five years, to more than 300 properties. We will also explore opportunities to acquire other letting agents in order to grow the business, and would like to open an office in the Telford area.”
Andrew is a RICS-qualified Chartered Building Surveyor and Facilities Manager, with a wealth of experience in the property profession and construction industry. Meanwhile, fellow Director Lindsey has over 20 years’ experience in property and was the Branch Manager for the franchise’s previous owners.
Andrew added: “Anwar and I have been working together as business partners at our Rev-A Associates property consultancy in Shrewsbury. At Martin & Co, we have gained Lindsey as a new business partner, and she will be leading the business as office manager. We have also appointed Jodie Hillage as sales and lettings negotiator.
“We all have extensive experience in the property sector, which means we can deliver high-quality property management and maintenance services.”
Shrewsbury town centre is renowned for its timber-framed, black and white buildings, steep, narrow streets and alleyways.
The area is popular with young professionals and families, and has many bars and award-winning restaurants, and has an excellent transport system.
