Six West Midlands branches of Hunters, one of the country’s largest national sales and lettings estate agents and franchise businesses, are ‘going blue’, as they celebrate their 25-year anniversary.
The branches, located in Knowle, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Litchfield and Tamworth have been trading under the distinctive red branding and the Hunters Group Limited company name (which became part of the larger Hunters Property PLC in 2014), but will now be switching over to the nationally recognisable blue branding in line with other branches across the country.
Hunters in the West Midlands continues to be run by the same management team and led by directors John Ozwell, David Curwen and David Hofton, who collectively have decades of unrivalled property experience.
John Ozwell, Chairman of Hunters in the Midlands explained: “Hunters has a continuously expanding network of 180 offices and an exceptional marketing offering. The time is right for our West Midlands branches to change our livery to the distinct blue that the majority of Hunters offices now use, allowing us to benefit from increased brand recognition and consistency. We will continue to deliver the same levels of customer service, professionalism and expertise that clients have come to expect during the last two decades.”
Pernilla Tweddle, Marketing Director of Hunters commented: “We are really pleased to see our Hunters branches in the Midlands go through this refreshing change that paves the way for many exciting opportunities and benefits under one and the same brand. The branches have all received a fresh make-over and look fantastic in the striking blue and white. These are excellent businesses run by excellent people and nothing will change there – just a new colour and a more modern looking brand which so far has been received very positively from staff and customers alike.”
The news comes after Hunters have just posted an outstanding set of interim results, with network income up by 42 per cent at £16.9m in the six months to June 30, 2016. During this six month period, the Group opened 17 new branches, including the conversions of 10 existing businesses, and grew the lettings income across the network by 18%.
Hunters joined the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange in July 2015.
