I joined Hunters a little over 4 years ago, back then we had around 30 operations in total and things have changed massively during that time.
As of today, our latest franchise has joined the network – Kudos Residential. Owned by Chris Starkings and Brian Hutchinson, they operate 7 branches across Norfolk and have a tremendous business and a perfect attitude towards customer service. Kudos represent a brilliant partner to Hunters as we share the same values and also a desire to expand across the region. With these branches now in place the Hunters network now breaks 160 and continues our drive to become the UK’s leading estate agency brand.
With the addition of the Kudos branches we have opened over 20 new Hunters branches in 2015 and along with our recent purchase of Country Properties (a franchise network) we have added over 40 branches to the tally already this year.
We have many more coming through and with 2015 already a record breaking year, it will be interesting to see just how great this year will be.
Next on the horizon is our imminent float onto the stock market, so we will very soon be Hunters PLC.
