One of the largest estate agencies in the East Midlands is continuing to expand with the opening of a new branch in Oakham, Rutland.
Newton Fallowell was advised by Lincoln-based Langleys Solicitors on the lease of 6 Market Street from Oakham School.
The branch is run by franchise partners Jason Treadwell and his wife Laura who already operate a Newton Fallowell office in Stamford. Within a year of opening, the Stamford branch achieved the top selling agent position for 2015 with over 30 per cent more property transactions than any other agent in the area.*
Managing director Jason Treadwell said: “Stamford and Rutland work very well together – we had clients looking towards Oakham for property and we felt it would be a good move to have a high street presence in the town.
“Demand is very good – Oakham and the surrounding area is a sought after part of the country with a good education system and Rutland Water on the doorstep.”
Sarah Miles, partner in commercial property at Langleys Solicitors, acted on the five-year lease deal for Newton Fallowell. She said: “We have advised Newton Fallowell on many of its new office openings – it is great to see the business doing well and continuing with its expansion.”
Newton Fallowell has 40 offices across the Midlands, the majority of which are run by franchisees.
