Connells Group has made a further addition to its national branch network, with the acquisition of Yorkshire-based estate agents Holroyds.
Sitting within the group’s Sequence business, Holroyds further expands the business’ extensive offering in Yorkshire, and comes after Connells completed the Countrywide takeover this week.
Holroyds is a well-established and family-run agent, offering sales, lettings and mortgage services across its three branches in Baildon, Keighley and Bingley.
Chris Holroyd, managing director who heads up the estate agency alongside Julie Holroyd, commented: “This [deal] significantly propels our offering to another level for both our current clients and new, as well as keeping our family-run feel which has served our clients so well over the last six years.
“We can’t wait to get started and look forward to growing the Holroyds brand over the years to come. This is also a fantastic opportunity for our brilliant team who will now have additional career opportunities.”
Upon acquisition each office will continue trading under the Holroyds brand.
Chris Rosindale, divisional managing director at Sequence, said: “We are extremely pleased to be welcoming Holroyds and our new colleagues into the business.
“They are a greatly respected, home-grown estate agency with excellent area knowledge, talent and reputation. This acquisition demonstrates our continued commitment to our high street operations, and I know that it will bring about our shared success, provide additional career opportunities, and allow both brands to strengthen their presence in this active market.”
