With Emoov entering administration and Countrywide group shares falling to an all time low one may think that estate agency all round is in the doldrums. Emoov are one of the large online agents who take an upfront cost from their clients for marketing the properties Countrywide are the UK’s largest estate agency chain. Locally their brand is Abbotts. They are what is general referred to as a corporate agent. Aldreds are neither of the above. We are a local independent firm. Owned, run and managed locally through our four branches. Our style of agency is thriving at the moment as clients look to instruct local trusted brands and people rather than national ‘onliners’ or corporate firms. We continue to thrive, working and supported the people of the area we have been proud to represent since 1857! If you are looking to sell your property now or in the new year call your local Aldreds branch, email us or contact us via our social media!
