North East estate agent and chartered surveyor Bradley Hall is celebrating further company expansion with the opening of its fifth residential office.
Bradley Hall announced the opening of its new Morpeth operation in response to growing demand for its property services across the North East.
The new Morpeth office specialises in a wide range of residential properties, meeting all budgets and requirements. The operation has already built a strong portfolio of properties, and is set to add dozens of exciting new-build developments, including luxury apartments and modern family homes.The company’s newest office, based on Newgate Street, will be run by the Bradley Hall Northumberland team. Led by director and qualified chartered surveyor Richard Rafique, the team includes newly appointed property executive Rosie Spours and Northumberland area manager Matt Hoy, who will all be on hand across Bradley Hall offices in Morpeth and Alnwick.
“Northumberland is widely renowned as a fantastic area to live thanks to its close proximity to the stunning coastline and countryside, as well as its transport links and access to the regional capital and other market towns.Richard Rafique, who is a registered valuer by the Royal Institute for Chartered Surveyors, said: “The expansion to Morpeth is another fantastic achievement for Bradley Hall. The outstanding success of the Alnwick office opening proved that there is a high demand for our property services in Northumberland.
“We’re currently offering a range of impressive properties in the area. We are looking forward to taking on new instructions to provide our clients with the best range of properties to choose from. We want to help people find their dream home or ideal business space.”
Rosie Spours will oversee negotiations across both Morpeth and Alnwick, advising on sales and acquisitions for clients in Northumberland.
Rosie said: “This is a fantastic time to be joining Bradley Hall during its expansion and to be back in the North East at such an exciting time for the regional property industry. Following a successful career at London estate agent Foxtons, managing negotiations on luxury properties across the capital, Rosie returned to Alnwick to continue an already established career in the property industry at Bradley Hall.
“I am looking forward to overseeing negotiations on some of the impressive new-build properties in the area which will be coming to market soon, as well as some of the more traditional properties which Northumberland is famous for.
“I am passionate about the property industry and I really enjoy helping people buy their first or new home, after all it is one of the biggest and most important investments you can make.”
