Growing agency group snaps up three regional agencies

Leaders Romans Group has acquired three major lettings, sales and surveying businesses operating multiple branches across London, Surrey, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.

The acquisition of the brands adds significant growth to areas LRG already cover but is underrepresented in, supporting its continued growth plans. All branches will remain under their current brands.

The three are Stirling Ackroyd, Alexander & Co, and Peter Ball.


Nick Dunning, CEO at Stirling Ackroyd and George Thomas, chief executive at Alexander & Co, will leave their respective businesses after a short transition period. 

All remaining team members will transfer to LRG.

Matthew Light, group mergers and acquisitions director at LRG, says: “Stirling Ackroyd represents our second largest acquisition with 31 branches, with Alexander & Co’s ten branches also joining the LRG group of brands in the same week.

“Stirling Ackroyd is a fantastic business that increases our share of the London market, particularly on the lettings side.

“The acquisition of Alexander & Co follows a long relationship with George Thomas, which has enabled us to reach an agreement when the time was right for both parties to work together. The acquisition brings high-quality lettings business and a strong presence in the sales market in the towns where they trade.”

Michael Cook, chief executive officer at LRG, comments: “Starting 2024 with the acquisition of three fantastic, well-known, and respected brands cements our five-year strategy, focusing on growth across the UK. I’m delighted to welcome all new team members to the LRG group.”

And George Thomas, chief executive at Alexander & Co, adds: “Alexander & Co and Peter Ball are well-established businesses that have been helping people let and buy homes for over 50 years. Our three core business values of being personal, proactive and ethical blend perfectly with those of LRG, and I am confident our clients and team will thrive as part of the wider LRG group.”

    Good news for the directors of the bought companies. Their customers may think otherwise.

    If there are any landlords out there reading this, be very careful about signing new terms with Romans Leaders. I have a landlord who did, now wants to change and the terms stipulate equivalent of 2 years rent to cancel the contract! Rent on her 3 properties amounts to c£2600 a month, Leaders Romans are demanding £6270 to allow her to leave!!


    Would that not be classed as an unfair term?
