Franchise agency says it’s on the lettings acquisition trail

Martin & Co’s Huddersfield branch is the latest part of the franchise operation to snap up an independent agency.

Branch owner Will Taylor has acquired Huddersfield agency Boultons, increasing his managed portfolio by more than 60%.

Some of Boultons staff have also joined the Martin & Co empire.


Taylor, who has owned Martin & Co Huddersfield for 14 years, completed his first acquisition a year ago when he purchased Milltown Lettings’ portfolio.

He says: “I’ve been in various talks over recent years with Boultons and am thrilled that we were able to work out a deal that allowed everyone involved to benefit.

“Completing our second acquisition within 12 months only goes to show the drive that both I and the rest of the team have to grow Martin & Co Huddersfield.

“I couldn’t be happier with the team that have joined from Boultons and am excited for our future together.”


Martin & Co managing director Ellie Hall adds: “Will’s hard work and dedication has seen him and the team in Huddersfield enjoy amazing success over the past 14 years.

“Their reputation in Huddersfield is second to none and I’m delighted to see Will complete this latest acquisition.

“His deal is the latest in a long line of acquisitions for Martin & Co franchisees and I’d urge any independents thinking of selling to contact us.”

A small number of Boultons properties outside of Martin & Co Huddersfield’s territory also transferred to Martin & Co Pontefract.
