The owners of Cardiff’s branch of national sales and lettings agency Martin & Co have more than doubled their managed portfolio of rental units through two acquisitions and the purchase of another Martin & Co branch.
Martin & Co Cardiff acquired independent agent Cardiff Homes, before recently completing on the acquisition of Cardiff Residential Estates.
As well as their two acquisitions, Martin & Co Cardiff owners Mike Shrubshall and Henry Mitchell also purchased Martin & Co’s Merthyr Tydfil branch in a re-sale.
Shrubshall, who has been trading at Martin & Co Cardiff for almost a decade having previously owned a publishing and marketing business, appointed Mitchell as sales and lettings director last year.
“As well as investing in our staff, we are embracing new technology and procedures. We put the client’s needs at the heart of everything we do – their property is our business” says Shrubshall.
Martin & Co managing director Louise Griffiths adds: “Martin & Co Cardiff is a great example of a franchisee investing in the futures of their staff and Mike and Henry will play a huge part in shaping the industry in South Wales. I’m delighted to see another two Martin & Co acquisitions cross the finish line and as a business we will continue to invest in this hugely successful strategy going forward.”
