One of Plymouth's leading independent estate agencies has strengthened its position in the waterside property market by opening a new office in the Barbican.
Lang Town & Country was created earlier this year following the merger of Town & Country Estate Agents & Letting Agents and Lang & Co Estate Agents- two of the best-known and most respected property businesses in Plymouth.
The merged business already has offices in Mannamead, North Hill and Plymstock - as well as Mayfair in London - and the opening of the new office near Plymouth's waterfront underlines the success of the company.
Around a fifth of Lang Town & Country's current business comes from the waterside market. The new high profile office, is located in Notte Street and will be the base for Lang Town & Country's waterside property team, which is headed up by director Gareth Forrest.
Gareth, who has more than 15 years' experience in the property market, has been involved in the sale of many of Plymouth's waterfront and new home developments during their initial construction and has handled scores of after sales within each development. He will be joined at the new office by Becky Ford who will be the Sales Manager & Chelsea Parrot as Lettings Manager.
Gareth explained "The waterside property market in Plymouth and Surrounding Areas is extremely buoyant and there is continuing demand for good quality houses, flats and apartments on or near the water - whether coastal, river or estuary."
Our exclusive membership of the Waterside Properties Network, which has offices in the 14 Counties in the UK and overseas, ensures a high level of awareness of waterside properties in the Plymouth area among potential buyers.
As a member of the network, Lang Town & Country is represented at the prestigious London and Southampton boat shows providing an important showcase for Plymouth properties among the yachting and sailing community.
Gareth said that an in-depth knowledge of the waterside property market was essential to ensure that vendors achieved the best price for their property.
"Over the last 15 to 20 years we have seen a number of new developments in and around Sutton Harbour, while more recently the Millbay and Royal William Yard have come on stream, stimulating further sales.
"A lot of people are downsizing and choosing apartments for retirement and Plymouth certainly has plenty to offer to this market."
He said that the market for waterside rental property also remained strong and he was confident that the new office will provide a further boost to this side of the business for Lang Town & Country.
"Being right in the heart of the Barbican gives us the opportunity to provide landlords with an even stronger service than we currently offer. We certainly expect to see our portfolio of rental properties grow in the future."
