Colchester opens its doors
On Saturday 21st December Beresfords new high street branch in Colchester opened its doors to the public! Located in a prime position right next door to Fenwicks the team welcomed the flurry of last minute Christmas shoppers in for a mince pie and mulled wine. There was also free face painting, balloons and a photo opportunity with Essex Cricket and the Vitality T20 trophy from their historic victory earlier on in the year.
Alongside advertising the new move, Beresfords were also collecting generous charitable donations from passers by for the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance. The lucky dip competition is still going throughout the festive period and the final figure raised will be announced in the new year!
This marks the fourth office relocation Beresfords have undertaken in the last 4 years, a ringing endorsement of the ‘High Street’. Why do we relocate offices? The reason is simple. The more visible an estate agent is the more property enquiries you get; the more enquiries you get the more properties you find a buyer or tenant for. In addition to this, our offices further out into Essex constantly get enquiries from people wanting to move out from nearer London.
In fact, at our Colchester branch, over 60% of those looking for property are from outside the local area, so combined with our relocation we are confident we are best placed to find the perfect buyer or tenant for our clients.
Previous relocations have seen an immediate and significant increase in phone calls and email enquiries as well as people through the door even when they have just moved a short distance up the road to a footfall hotspot.
