BRAEMAR ESTATES BECOMES RENDALL & RITTNER
Following its purchase by leading managing agent Rendall & Rittner, Braemar Estates will become Rendall & Rittner creating one fully integrated business. Rendall & Rittner acquired Manchester-based managing agents, Braemar Estates, at the end of last year, bringing the group’s total portfolio of managed properties to more than 60,000 across the UK. Initially, the two companies were operating under their own names, but the move to unite them as Rendall & Rittner allows the company to grow nationally under one brand. The change is effective as of 24th September.
Rendall & Rittner, an experienced operator in the residential block management sector, has been expanding rapidly in recent years and recently was awarded a Platinum accolade in the Investors in People (IIP) standard making the company third place, out of only 18 real estate companies in the UK to be awarded this level. Its acquisition of Braemar Estates has allowed it to increase its presence in the North West. Its portfolio ranges from traditional mansion blocks to substantial mixed-use developments.
Richard Daver, Managing Director of Rendall & Rittner, comments: “By operating as one company with one team, under one brand, we can strengthen Rendall & Rittner’s foothold in the region and provide excellent service and value to our customers and clients. We all share the same values and commitment to quality, and we are excited about moving forward together as a truly national company at the forefront of our industry.”
The integration of the businesses will utilise the strengths of both companies and will result in benefits to customers including an upgraded online portal, improved reporting, slicker communication through a new system for logging and tracking work and better value through group purchasing deals. The teams will continue to operate from their current offices in London, Manchester, Hale and the Midlands.
Matt Kirk, the company’s North Area Director comments: “Following a strategic review of our position, it was evident that integrating the two businesses was the next logical step and a way to ensure that we continue to deliver the highest standards of service across Manchester and our region.”
