Estate agent Pygott & Crone has archived its highest sales figures in a decade for the months of October and November. The Lincolnshire-based agent sold 224 homes in October and 186 in November, compared to 117 in October and 65 in November 2005 – an increase of 91 and 186 per cent respectively.
The firm’s success has come at a time when the county’s tourism and economy is growing, strengthening the property market and enticing buyers from within the county and beyond to invest in Lincolnshire property.
The hike in sales has been seen across the firm’s 11 offices and senior partner Kevin Scrupps says it’s down to the improving economy and Pygott & Crone’s continued investment in the business. “It is a great testament to the staff at Pygott & Crone and the business as a whole to report these fantastic record figures after a very difficult period in the housing market and the economy.
“As a business we continue to invest heavily in staff training and technology and we are now reaping the benefits of this investment which is illustrated in these figures. We are lucky enough to have a very loyal customer base and welcome new clients on a daily basis across our sites. The firm’s success is very much down to our customers and our excellent customer service.”
