New Partnership for WR

Estate agency Walton Robinson has secured a contract with a leading national residential property business to sell homes in their North East portfolio.

Walton Robinson has revealed a partnership with Move With Us, which operates across the UK to sell homes on behalf of an array of clients including housebuilders, housing associations, banks and financial institutions and Executors of Wills.

The Newcastle-based business - which has become a regional leader in lettings since its inception in 2001, adding its estate agency offering in 2008 - has hailed the partnership as a “huge coup” for Walton Robinson.

Walton Robinson has invested heavily across its operation over the past few years, and has seen stellar growth in its estate agency over the past three years. The business has added numerous extra people to its 40-strong team and has installed sector-leading technology, both of which it credits as being key to its growth.

The Move With Us partnership makes Walton Robinson part of the organisation’s vast national network of independent corporate clients, which could open up further opportunities for the business, and increases Walton Robinson’s estate agency profile across the UK.

As well as selling properties, Walton Robinson will work with locally-based solicitors to make buyers and sellers ‘legally ready’ to move, enabling them to fill in relevant documents online ahead of any transaction taking place and ensuring no legal hold-ups on their side.

Richard Ponton, director of Walton Robinson, said: “To be working with Move With Us is a huge coup for Walton Robinson. Through working with the UK’s leading housebuilders to assist with their part exchanges, to selling homes as part of probate, the breadth and geographical spread of the portfolio is vast, but we have been chosen due to our capability and professional client service.

“In comparison to other estate agencies in their network, we are a newcomer to the scene, and it is only over the past three or four years we have grown to the level of capability we have now. We have a strong operation, which we have made significant investment in over the past few years, and the culmination of our growth has been to be chosen to join this national network.”

Adam Fleming, from Move With Us, added: “At Move With Us, we are committed to building a network of only the highest quality independent providers, and we have very stringent standards each has to meet.

“We have been very impressed with the quality of the sales team at Walton Robinson and their dedication to customer service, so we are very pleased to welcome them as the latest member of our UK-wide network.”
