Savills has announced two acquisitions in the north west, one of an agency and one of an individual branch.
The agency being snapped up is Case McNair which specialises in lettings and management of a £200m-plus portfolio throughout Greater Manchester.
The team of 15 will all join Savills, led by managing director John-Paul Case who will become head of northern metropolitan lettings.
The team from Case McNair will continue to operate out of its existing office in Manchester before relocating to the Savills office elsewhere in the city early next year.
Jane Cronwright-Brown, head of the lettings division at Savills, says: “Case McNair has an excellent reputation in Manchester and internationally and this acquisition provides a strategic opportunity for us to expand the services we offer in the area, complementing our existing residential development sales business operating out of our Manchester office.”
Meanwhile the former Mellor Braggins office in Knutsford has now become Savills Knutsford, and will be headed up by Charlie Kannreuther who has worked for the Savills residential business in Cheshire for six years.
Meller Braggins managing director, Nigel Lammas and two colleagues will move across to Savills with immediate effect, but Meller Braggins’ four other residential and lettings branches are unaffected by this acquisition.
These acquisitions complement Savills existing office network in the north west which includes Manchester, Wilmslow and Chester.
