Independent Liverpool-based agency LPS Real Estate has acquired another indie - Maison Lettings.
As part of the acquisition, LPS will take over management of a portfolio of properties run by Maison Lettings for a decade.
“These days, you often see the larger corporates snapping up the smaller agencies so, as a growing independent, we are delighted to get this opportunity. Moving the portfolio from one independent to another, which tend to have a greater degree of flexibility than the corporates, is going to make the transition easier for everyone involved” explains LPS real estate director Joe Gervin.
He continues: “Our team will be delivering the same high level of service and professionalism to Maison’s client database, but as one of Liverpool’s leading letting agents we can also bring them some additional benefits that will make their lives easier without impacting their pockets.”
Maison Lettings’ director Tom Clarke says of the deal: “Having taken the decision to retire from working life my overriding priority was to find an agency I could trust to take on the business.
“I have spoken to numerous interested parties, including larger corporate firms, but when I spoke to Joe at LPS Real Estate it quickly became apparent that he shared many of our values and LPS seems the perfect home for Maison’s portfolio.
“As a local, independent family-run business it has a similar culture and mirrors our ethos and management. I have no doubt LPS Real Estate will manage our assets efficiently and professionally, adding value to landlords and tenants without compromising good value. I shall retire safe in the knowledge our clients are in good hands.”
