Balfours, one of Shropshire’s longest established independent property agents has opened a new office in Ludlow.

The move to Broad Street in the town centre reflects the company’s success as a property agent over a number of years in South Shropshire, the Marches and North Herefordshire. Sales manager  - Ludlow, Scott Kemsley is delighted with the move.

He reflects: “We have been successfully closing deals on residential homes to buy and let, together with development land and farms for quite some years. It is an entirely evolutionary process that we should have a physical presence in South Shropshire.”

Scott joined Balfours three years ago with global experience in property sales and development, but with his roots firmly in South Shropshire and Ludlow his local town – he has quickly rekindled old acquaintances and made new ones through local organisations including Ludlow Cricket Club.

He admits: “We have enjoyed exceptional sales, with the business growing year on year, to a point where long term commitment was the obvious way forward. As a boutique estate agency, I hope that the many clients and prospective clients and buyers will take the opportunity to visit 67 Broad Street, to see for themselves the premium service we offer.”
