Another Belvoir franchise has acquired a local independent lettings agency.
Belvoir already has offices in Corby, Kettering and Coventry and is now expanding with the acquisition of Simon Musto, also in Kettering.
Simon Musto Kettering is one of the town’s longest established businesses and boasts two members of staff, both of which stay in position. Musto himself will remain in the business, mainly working from home as a remote agent.
Local Belvoir managing director Bobby Singh Braich says: “We are delighted to announce this acquisition as it gives Belvoir a greater presence in Kettering. Combining our services will benefit our customers, bringing a modern approach to a traditional, well-respected business.
“Simon is a consummate professional and we are so pleased that he will continue to also be a much-valued colleague, as he brings a wealth of experience to our team. I am very excited for our future working together to provide the best possible service to our clients.”
Musto adds: “This business has been established for 80 years and I’ve been running it for 40 years. We have a lot of very loyal, longstanding clients. The main focus for me was to sell to a company with the integrity to carry on our amazing history. I’ve known of Bobby for a number of years and the Belvoir brand is a trusted and long-standing brand so I know the business is in good hands.
“While I’m very sad to see the business sold, I’m very happy that it has gone to Belvoir. I feel like we’ve gone out on top, as the business is doing better than it has ever done. I’m going out on a high and know I’m handing over a good business to Bobby.”
