Estate agent Pygott & Crone has opened a new branch in Nottingham’s Bridlesmith Gate in the city centre.

The firm has been established in Lincolnshire for the past 30 years, with offices in London and more than 600 associated offices across the UK, as founding members of the Land and New Homes network and the relocation agent network. The move marks its first branch opening in Nottingham.

Following the opening of its new branch, Pygott & Crone is contracted to sell more than 1,000 new homes across the region within the next 18 months.

Six new staff members are set to join the office, with more recruitment opportunities in the coming months.

Director of Pygott & Crone, Tim Downing, said: “I am really excited and feel very proud about our new branch opening in Nottingham. This has been a significant investment for us, with new technology and a total refurbishment of the premises – it looks great, and very inviting too for the public to pop in off the street and have a chat with us, which is exactly what we want.

“We first opened an office space in Gothic House in the Lace Market in 2018 and back then, it was just me. We have since hired three more members to join the Nottingham team, and to now have an official branch open right in the centre with a team of six – and more to come – is just fantastic and a real testament to the success of the agency.

“I am very much looking forward to what the rest of 2022 has to bring for Pygott & Crone and I know that Dale Brewster, the new manager of the branch, will do a fantastic job of leading the team.”

Brewster has extensive experience within the industry in Nottingham and the county itself, having worked as a negotiator, valuer and manager over the past 10 years.

He said: “It’s an exciting time for the business as there is ample opportunity here in Nottingham and we’ve already hit the ground running. We’ve been overwhelmed with the support so far and are feeling positive about the future.”
