A leading North East property firm has relocated its Alnwick operation to meet growing demand in Northumberland.
Bradley Hall Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents has occupied larger, more central premises at 28 Bondgate Without, Alnwick, during a time of exciting growth for the firm. The office will specialise in residential services, whilst also offering its range of commercial services to clients.
Residential turnover at Bradley Hall has increased 69% within a year whilst sales have increased by 172%.
This growth has been driven, in part, by the launch of its Land, Development & New Homes department. The specialist new homes team brought to market £100m of new homes including 15 sites across the North East with over 200 plots for sale. The team will launch a further six sites and 117 plots over the remainder of the year.
As part of the ‘field to finish’ approach created by the group, the new homes team is further supported by BH Planning & Design, a sister company of Bradley Hall. Its dedicated team is currently working on projects that could see the delivery of more than 4,000 new homes across the North East.
Matt Hoy, director of estate agency at Bradley Hall, said: “The relocation and expansion to the new Alnwick operation is a significant step for Bradley Hall as we grow our presence in Alnwick and wider Northumberland.
“Our residential operation has performed incredibly well over the past year, and we have also acquired highest market share in Morpeth recently. We became first out of 86 other agents for available stock and first out of 22 other agents for new instructions.
“This success is a testament to the dedicated and hardworking team, and we look forward to continuing in our success and growth in Alnwick and Northumberland.” The expansion comes following the news that Bradley Hall recently celebrated 20% increase in net profit and a turnover exceeding £3.5m across its commercial and residential operations.
Bradley Hall runs seven offices in the North East including; Alnwick, Morpeth, Gosforth, Newcastle city centre, Durham, Sunderland and Hexham as well as an office in London. Departments include; Commercial Agency, Building Surveying, Residential Agency, Land, Development & New Homes, Property Management, Mortgages, and Professional Services to include valuations and lease advisory.
BH Group, which includes Bradley Hall Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents, BH Planning and Design and BH Financial, also expanded its team with 12 new members of staff – bringing total headcount to 65. Head of Land, Development & New Homes, Jonathan Rudge, said: “We are delighted to be expanding in Alnwick. Bradley Hall is very passionate about the fantastic opportunities in Northumberland and has been an avid champion of the county for some time.
“The specialist Land, Development & New Homes team has already brought to market a number of exciting new developments in Northumberland and we look forward to welcoming a number of new opportunities in the area very soon.
“Working closely with BH Planning & Design as well as the general Bradley Hall residential operation, we provide clients with a full service, field to finish approach.
“Additionally, with the growth in demand for our services for the public sector, we were also delighted to be awarded the Homes England Property Services Framework. The appointment to this national panel now allows us to act as key advisors on future North East and national government housing projects.”
