WEBBERS ANNOUNCE EXCITING MERGER

Local award winning agents Webbers are extremely pleased to announce a merger with strong local Barnstaple based lettings agency Anthony Turner & Co.

Managing Director of Webbers Malcolm Prescott explains: "This is a very exciting merger with a well-known and respected local letting agency which has been practising in the North Devon area for over fifteen years. Anthony has built up a loyal following in the area and offers a professional and personal service which is in parallel with the Webbers ethos." Malcolm goes on to say: "We look forward to welcoming Anthony and his team into the Webbers fold to add to our expanding lettings team based in Barnstaple. Anthony will continue to look after all of his customers in the area and spearhead the further growth of our lettings business in Barnstaple".

Established in 1995 Anthony Turner & Co is often referred to as "a friendly, locally run independent property lettings and management company". The business covers the whole of the North Devon patch and this merger will significantly increase the Webbers register of fully managed properties from around 700 to well over 900. In recent years Lawrence Williams (Lettings Manager Webbers) has developed this expanding business to provide a unique service for Landlords in North Devon. Lawrence explains: "It has been my priority to develop new and robust strategies to offer a service that is second to none. I am now confident that at Webbers we can do just that, and we look forward to offering our service to all the new valued Landlords who have engaged Anthony's services in the past".

Anthony Turner comments: "I am not only proud but delighted and excited at being given the opportunity to merge my property letting and management company with a firm that I have both admired and respected for over thirty years. This is unquestionably a new chapter in my professional career and one that I am very keen to develop within the Barnstaple and surrounding area. I have been very moved and encouraged by the overwhelming support I have received not only from Landlords but also Tenants. Having started this business originally from nothing in 1993 it is now time to move forward as a strong and highly efficient lettings business providing a level of service second to none".
