The opening of the new office marks the third Knight Frank office in the Midlands, joining their multi-disciplinary operations in Worcester and Birmingham.
The new team is being led by Kevin Boulton, who brings with him 24 years of experience in the residential property sector.
Boulton joins Knight Frank after working as an independent property consultant in the Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, and mid Wales area.
Prior to consulting, Bouton held the position of director at Strutt & Parker where he ran their Ludlow and Shrewsbury offices for over 13 years.
Boulton will also be working in collaboration with the Knight Frank Country department’s central and farms & estates teams, led by Peter Edwards and Clive Hopkins.
Based on College Hill, in the centre of Shrewsbury, Boulton and his team will be offering the full suite of services provided by all Knight Frank branches.
He commented: “Shropshire has always been an extremely desirable place to live with such beautiful countryside including the Shropshire Hills AONB.
“Shrewsbury has become a vibrant county town with good connections to Birmingham and direct trains to London. There are also many wonderful market towns throughout the county and a wide range of housing for all budgets.
“As more people are working from home or having flexible working arrangements, there is an increase in demand from families and those retiring to seek a quieter pace of life associated with the area.”
James Cleland, head of country business at Knight Frank, added: “Knight Frank has long enjoyed selling a diverse range of properties across Shropshire and Wales, so opening a dedicated office in the area is a natural next step to strengthening the links we already have.”
