Millbank Estate Agents are Attleborough’s longest established estate agent set up by the late David Millbank in 1979 on Connaught Plain. In 1994 experienced estate agent Tony Beales acquired the well known company (at the time known as Millbank & Co) and set about a rebranding exercise, firstly by renaming the company “Millbank Estate Agents” as it is known today and secondly by introducing an exciting new colour scheme with a new distinctive diamond logo, from that day onwards Millbank Estate Agents had been re-launched!
Following some very successful periods from those early days, the business grew significantly, additional staff were employed and the company introduced new technology including computerisation, web sites and digital media ensuring that the business continued its growth in the changing times. In 2008 Millbank Letting Agents was set up from a cold start and very quickly established itself as a front runner in local lettings, this was certainly seen as the ideal time to enter the residential lettings market as residential sales were slow due to the effects of the credit crunch and the economic slow-down.
With a change in market conditions, an alternative marketing strategy was adopted to enable the company to adapt to the changes it faced going forward, these new ideas were put in place and proved successful with both Sales & Lettings continuing in difficult times to increase their respective shares in the local property market. It then began to become apparent that with business increasing in size the original premises on Connaught Plain were restricting the company’s natural growth opportunities for expansion and continued success, more room was required and bigger offices were needed!
In early 2012 the ideal premises for the company to move to were identified and once acquired, the double fronted building went through an extensive programme of refurbishment and renovation. The 2 storey offices are decorated in the corporate Millbank Estate Agents colours and enjoy a central prominent location in the centre of town with car parking to the rear. The light, bright larger front sales office has an attractive exposed rustic red brick feature wall, there is also a separate Letting Office with private meeting offices on the first floor. The well lit display windows provide the largest dedicated Letting display in Attleborough with a separate window for Sales, both windows include a digital property screens scrolling all available properties, something unique to Attleborough Estate Agents.
The future for Millbank Estate Agents is exciting, the new premises provide the perfect platform for the company to expand and grow creating additional employment opportunities with the benefit of new services being introduced. At the start of 2013 Millbank Estate Agents joined the Guild of Professional Estate Agents which is a pro-active organisation providing a national network of 780 offices throughout the UK as well as a central London office in Park Lane, London where all our properties can be accessed in the “lucrative” London market.
