Rettie & Co. continue expansion with Newcastle office
The move follows a successful similar southern move with the opening of a premises in Berwick upon Tweed as well as another opening in September in Newton Mearns, Glasgow, which saw the firm add to its three West Coast offices in Bath Street, Bearsden and the West End of Glasgow.
The firm also has two offices in Edinburgh, as well as branches in Melrose, Berwick and London.
The Newcastle office will be Rettie & Co’s tenth and will be headed-up by Rob Taylor.
Mr Taylor, who lived in Newcastle for over 25 years with over 20 years property experience at local agents General Accident, Sanderson Young and more latterly the Rettie & Co. Melrose and Berwick office, said: “I am extremely pleased to become Managing Partner of our new office in Jesmond which will enable us to tap into the Newcastle market and offer increased geographic reach across the whole of the North East.”
He added: “With 9 other offices across Scotland, the Borders, Northumberland and London, I believe we can offer our clients properties exposure to a larger regional and national market which is second to none.”
“The Newcastle office will strengthen the business in the North East of England”, the firm said.
To celebrate the opening, Rettie will be offering homeowners in the Newcastle area a special 0 per cent sales fee.
Simon Rettie, managing director of Rettie & Co. said: “It’s been an incredibly exciting year for Rettie & Co., and after focusing on our movement into the west of Scotland we’re now turning our sights to the North East of England, and strengthening our presence on the map there. Rettie & Co. as a brand is synonymous with the prime property market in Scotland and North Northumberland, we’re thrilled to be able to extend this excellent reputation to Newcastle and the surrounding countryside. Our 0% commission campaign is a fitting way to introduce ourselves to the new neighbourhood and a taster of the high calibre customer service and results we deliver to our clients.”
