Chestertons claims growth in market share is behind two busiest months in firm’s history

London agent Chestertons is claiming that September was its busiest month ever.

The firm says it was a second consecutive month for breaking its own records.

The firm said that its performances in August and September have helped it achieve its best-ever quarter-three results, up 11% on the same period last year.

Chestertons says its success comes despite low sales volumes across London, and is due to growing its market share.

Its lettings division has also enjoyed both its busiest month in September and busiest quarter ever in terms of tenancies agreed and revenue.

Managing director Guy Gittins said: “Our sales team are working harder than ever to put deals together and progress them through to completion and this hard work is reflected in these latest results, which every single person at Chestertons should be immensely proud of.

“Our sales figures show that while there are of course people hesitating and taking a ‘wait-and-see’ approach to Brexit, there are also plenty who are not willing or cannot afford to put their lives on hold and are prepared to commit to purchases when the asking price is right.”

Chestertons was launched in 1805 and has some 33 branches in London.
