07 August 2017

Another successful acquisition

William H Brown, part of the Sequence UK network, today announces the successful completion of another business acquisition – Cory & Co in Harwich.  The purchase comes in quick succession of recently acquired Barnfields in Enfield, continuing the company’s acquisition drive and extending its market leading service to even more customers. 

Cory & Co is one of Harwich’s leading independent agents, founded by Norman Cory in 1981 and trading in the Harwich and Dovercourt areas and surrounding villages.  With seller Norman Cory retiring, William H Brown is pleased to acquire the lettings, and remaining sales business which will transfer into its existing Harwich branch.  William H Brown will retain three members of staff who, with a wealth of experience, will assist with managing the transfer of the business and provide a constant service to landlords and tenants. 

“This acquisition strengthens our position in the local market and fits our targeted approach of building our managed property portfolio,” says Mike Rowley, Acquisitions Director for Sequence.  “There is huge demand for rental property in Harwich and its surrounding areas and we’re looking forward to welcoming and working with the Cory & Co team to provide more landlords and tenants with the full spectrum of market leading lettings services that we offer.”

The purchase forms part of a wider initiative by William H Brown's parent company Sequence UK Ltd to expand and invest where the right opportunities exist.  In light of the expansion plans, William H Brown is urging local estate agency business to get in touch and discuss possibilities for acquisition.
