A WELL-KNOWN Worcester estate agency brand that recently closed all its city centre branches has opened a new office in Spetchley.

Andrew Grant, a recognisable name in Worcester for 50 years, has now moved to new offices on the Spetchley Estate just outside Worcester.

A spokesperson for the company said: “The relocation is part of the first phase of development under our new ownership and allows room for further growth of the business and ample room for meetings and collaboration.”

Director Anneke Babber said: “The new offices are the start of a new era for our team and for our clients, Andrew Grant 2020 is an exciting and extensive project aimed at providing an industry leading level of customer service.

“Going forward we are investing in customer-focused cutting-edge technology that will uniquely support the service our clients receive as well as significantly improving outcomes.”

Founder Andrew Grant, who remains as a consultant with the revised business, said: “I am delighted to see a lifetime of endeavour progressing into a new and exciting model that fits together a new age and established values.”

The business was established around 50 years ago and operated from six offices, including its head office in Worcester.

The offices were closed due to coronavirus but in June the company announced it was going into administration.

Fifty-four people were made redundant as new executive chairmen for Andrew Grant, Scott Richardson Brown and Peter Bloomer, took over the brand. Only the lettings and property management part of the company was saved.

The firm’s new building is in Cupola Court on the Spetchley estate.

Mr Brown said: “The aim is to increase the value, effectiveness and service on offer to clients through a unique digital marketing platform that will support and enhance communications and the customer experience.”
