An estate agency in Lancashire, which was taken over by a hotel group last year, has expanded after acquiring a competitor firm.
Mikhail Hotel and Leisure Group purchased David Davies in St Helens 10 months ago with a view to making the company one of the largest agencies in north west England.
The firm is pressing ahead with its strategy and has announced the purchase of local agent Aspire.
In a statement, managing director Paula Davies said: “The acquisition of Aspire marks the start of our local growth.
“Now that all existing Aspire Clients have been contacted, we are pleased to announce this significant gain.
“Aspire are clearly a customer focused company which will mould well within our brand due in part to the excellent leadership from its management team.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Aspire team into the David Davies fold. Sinead & Dan are clearly accustomed to delivering-the standards expected within our company and will only enhance our current fold.”
David Davis now plans to open two new offices and expand its business to mark its 40th year.
The company plans to open new branches in Eccleston and St Helens town centre.
They aim to open on 1 March, a date the business says is poignant following the death of founder David Davies in the autumn of 2019.
Davies added: “We are very excited to be growing the brand.
“As a business that is built on energy, agility, professionalism and knowledge, our aim is to be the agent who not only understands the local area around their offices better than any other agent but is also at the heart of the community.
“We believe that ‘Local know-how’ will achieve ‘better results’ and make the difference to our clients.
“Our story began in St Helens town centre and we are delighted to be returning.
“Our planned growth is incredibly exciting and will not only see offices throughout the whole borough of St Helens but will see an expansion into Wigan, Warrington, Sefton and beyond within the next 12 months, with building work already underway on many of the next locations.
“The planned expansion is expected to create around 30 new roles across the North West which is fabulous.”
