High-profile franchise completes another independent acquisition

Martin & Co’s Ashford branch has completed another independent agency acquisition.

The office of the national estate agency, owned by Kevin Hall since 2010, has completed a deal for Taylors Lettings, further consolidating its position as one of Ashford’s largest letting agents.

The acquisition is Hall’s second, after he completed the purchase of FoxWood Maclean’s portfolio in 2019.

Hall, whose previous career included working for HMRC, PwC and Baker Tilly in London, said: “We’re always on the lookout for opportunities to grow our portfolio and Taylors Lettings is certainly a business that shares our ethos for great customer service, having been operating in Ashford for more than 20 years.

“I’m absolutely delighted to complete the deal and I’m really pleased to welcome Taylors Lettings’ landlords into the Martin & Co fold, where they’ll benefit from both the experience of the team and the processes and technology we have in place to help them.”

Martin & Co MD, Eric Walker, added: “Kevin has achieved some wonderful things since joining Martin & Co more than a decade ago and his hard work and passion for his business are infectious.

“I’m delighted he’s been able to add a second acquisition to that list of achievements and I’d remind any independent agents thinking of selling that we have a lot of franchisees with funding in place who are keen to discuss opportunities, so get in touch.”
