Less than a year since opening the sixth branch of sales and lettings agency Parkers, one of the brand’s most successful ownership teams has bagged a seventh.
Parkers is one of the brands owned by the Property Franchise Group: the others are Martin & Co, EweMove, CJ Hole, Ellis & Co and Whitegates.
Simon Gregory, Bruce Taylor and Ben Mitchell’s latest Parkers office is in the Berkshire village of Pangbourne and follows the acquisition of local independent Neville Turner earlier this year.
The office on Pangbourne has now been rebranded as Parkers Pangbourne and joins the trio’s other branches in Theale, Tadley, Tilehurst, Spencers Wood, Burghfield Common and Newbury.
Gregory, who joined the team in 2010, says: “We’re extremely happy to complete the acquisition of Neville Turner as this has this given us an incredible opportunity to build a presence in Pangbourne and its surrounding villages.
“Pangbourne is a vibrant village with a main line railway station and great links to both Reading and Oxford, so it’s hugely popular and we’re looking forward to providing the same first-class service we do in our other six offices.”
Parkers Managing Director Toby Phillips adds: “Simon, Bruce and Ben’s enthusiasm and passion for the Parkers brand is incredible and their appetite for growth is infectious. Their business is going from strength to strength, and I know Parkers Pangbourne will be another huge success story for them.”
