Incredible Start

A Coventry estate agent has hailed an ‘incredible’ start to business in the city just months after opening. Allsopp & Allsopp was launched in Coventry last October by brothers Carl and Lewis Allsopp to build on the success of their agency in Dubai.

From a standing start, the firm, which is based New Union Street, has been selling homes across the city at a rate of more than five a week and is now looking to ramp up trade into the spring and summer.

Nikki Eaton, Allsopp & Allsopp branch manager, said: “We have been blown away by the incredible start we’ve made since launching in the autumn.

“Carl and Lewis could see that the residential market was starting to pick up in the area and, with this being their home city, decided to launch an office in Coventry.

“The upturn in the market is certainly evident by the start we have made but the team here have to take much of credit for the performance so far.

“We have taken a very pro-active approach with vendors and buyers. Within a few weeks of launching, we’d got more than 400 potential buyers registered and as soon as we receive an instruction they are matched against the potential buyers.

“It has meant that ‘for sale’ boards have quickly been replaced by ‘sold’ boards and, as a result, we have many very satisfied clients already.

“The autumn and winter is often considered a lean time for the residential property market but it’s certainly the busiest period those of us in the industry have experienced over recent years.

“We are now very much looking forward to the coming weeks and months as we turn our new instructions into further sales.”

Allsopp & Allsopp’s sales have ranged from first-time buyer properties to family homes.

“Clients are certainly noticing we have a different approach and it is right across the board,” added Nikki. “It’s an improving market and this is certainly the time for vendors to take advantage of that.”
