Estate agency continues to grow after completing double acquisition

Sheldon Bosley Knight (SBK) has acquired two more businesses.

Leicestershire agencies, Fox Lettings and Bradgate Lettings join the fold this month adding more than 1,000 let-only and managed properties to SBK’s rental portfolio. SBK will retain both teams as part of the deal.

It further establishes a letting base in Leicestershire for SBK, following the acquisition of James Sellicks letting earlier this year.

SBK, which celebrates its 180th birthday next year, now has 15 offices and more than 100 in-house staff across Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, the Cotswolds, Worcestershire and the West Midlands.

SBK director and co-owner, Mike Cleary, said: “Both Bradgate and Fox are well-established businesses with rich heritages and so it’s fantastic they have entrusted us to take over the reins.

“Bradgate has been a family-run business since its inception 30 years ago, and Fox celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and as we all share the same values and ethos, I feel both are therefore an excellent fit for SBK. I am confident we will continue to provide an excellent level of service and advice for tenants and landlords in Leicestershire.

“These acquisitions mark the end of a busy year for us. We have continued to push the boundaries and drive the business forward with our aim to grow SBK even further next year, our 180th year.

“There have been many great achievements this year, not least completing seven acquisitions and selling all stock at our first in-room auction in November.”
