Jackson-Stops has confirmed that its London business has been bought by Dexters.
Nick Leeming, chairman at Jackson-Stops, said: “The acquisition of 11 London and Surrey based Jackson-Stops branches has now been completed by the Dexters Group.
“This deal represents a very exciting new phase for the London business and we are very pleased to welcome Dexters as a partner in the Jackson-Stops brand.
“The London offices will continue to operate under the Jackson-Stops name.”
Dexters previously operated under a variety of brands as it made various acquisitions across London, but in 2016 had a ‘tidying up’ operation, ditching 20 brands in favour of just one – its own – name.
It looks as though it is making an exception with its latest purchase of a business with its own highly prestigious brand.
Jackson-Stops has also announced expansion in the south-east with the launch of a new branch in Lindfield, Sussex.
It is headed up by two agents who had been with the Jackson-Stops London business –Toby Whittome, former director of the Chelsea branch, and Guy Kelsey, the former sales and acquisitions manager for prime central London.
