Edwards completes acquisition of Westbridge & Co Residential Lettings

We're delighted to announce that we have completed the acquisition of independent agency Westbridge & Co Residential Lettings at the beginning of May.

Richard Johnson, the founder of Westbridge Residential Lettings said. "We were looking to sell the Residential Company and were attracted to Edwards because of their independent status. We didn't want our long standing, loyal residential clients to get lost within a large corporate, where they would risk being funnelled into an impersonal call centre.

The purchase means we will take over the Westbridge & Co Residential lettings portfolio, which helps strengthen our position as a major lettings agent in the area through organic growth and future acquisitions.

Edward Lowe Managing Director comments; "I'm delighted that we have completed the recent acquisition of Westbridge & Co, this is a clear statement of our ambition to be the market leader in the town".

"It's clear to see that the industry is experiencing some fundamental changes and we feel that our expertise in the industry, aligned with our extensive local knowledge and experience will be of real benefit to our clients during these challenging times" he adds.

Julie Street of Westbridge & Co, has transferred to Edwards and joins the existing Lettings team in the office in Meer Street. We recently underwent a significant rebrand, which was the result of customer research last year, coinciding with our 10th anniversary. Since then, we have undergone an extensive expansion plan which will see us go into other sectors to help diversify our offering. Edward Lowe comments; "We are still looking to expand and are actively looking for further strategic acquisitions".
