New beginning in The Square

21/12/2015

Balfours Property Professionals celebrated the opening of their new offices in Shrewsbury’s Square – with a launch which coincided with carols in The Square, last week.

The event was attended by clients, professionals and stakeholders, who enjoyed the Christmas festivities, together with a sense of great anticipation in the property market for the year to come.

Says Tim Main, head of sales at Balfours: “Feedback from our guests was very positive with the consensus that we had picked the right site in the right location and that the new space really works. Our jumbo size maps of Shrewsbury and Shropshire added a fascination and wow factor too.”

The move more than doubles desk and reception space for the residential sales team, which has also grown significantly in the past twelve months – reflecting strong, sustainable growth in residential sales over the past two years.

“We are within the wonderful Grade II listed 19th century Old Music Hall, designed by Edward Haycock in 1835. Moving to The Square, not only gives us much needed additional space, but also a profile and presence in the heart of the town,” Tim adds.
