Alistair takes helm of Balfours sales

Balfours partners have announced the appointment of Alistair Hilton to head of sales with immediate effect.

Alistair joined the company three years ago to take on a new role as town sales manager. Since then he has succeeded in establishing and broadening the company’s sales.

Speaking on behalf of the partners, Balfours, business manager, Craig Varley, says: “The partners are delighted to have Alistair leading the sales team; a team which has achieved an above target in the last financial year and a very solid start to the new  financial year.

“During the past three years Alistair has been responsible for key developments within the town sales market. He also played a significant role in the residential sales move to prestigious new premises in Shrewsbury’s Square. These two factors have been major contributors to doubling our sales portfolio, client base and turnover,” Craig adds.

Alistair’s mantra and belief: “We are here to help people move,” and “Shrewsbury is a beautiful town in the heart of a fabulous county,” are based on his globetrotting early years, speaking three languages and attending school both in the UK, Europe and the USA. Prior to moving to Shrewsbury he also spent ten years immersed in London’s property market. However he recognised the qualities of his wife’s home town and moved here with her and their two young daughters.

Says Alistair: “Currently we are introducing new technology to work with IT platforms, including social media. Our developments are self-fulfilling with more property appraisals, instructions and ultimately sales, in an increasingly diverse market place, from fabulous town houses and suburban residences to country properties and those with land.”

Drawing on his experience at a prestigious London estate agency, Alistair recognises the importance of an eye for detail combined with speed and efficiency. “These are assets to anyone seeking to put their house on the market. My team strive to minimise stress, maximise potential and drive sales, certainly the past six months has exceeded our expectations.”  If you would like to discuss your property with Alistair call 01743 353511 or visit The Square.
