Connells celebrates 80th anniversary

Local estate agency Connells is celebrating 80 years in business this year. The company has grown from its beginnings when Larry Connell opened the first branch in Luton in 1936 – the same year that the BBC started its first public TV broadcasts and King Edward VIII abdicated to marry Wallis Simpson – and is now one of the UK’s largest and most successful estate agencies with a network of nearly 160 branches nationwide.

“Although Connells has come a long way since its first branch opening, the company built its success on providing consistently high levels of customer service and this ethos still stands today,” says Oliver Fowler, Branch Manager at Connells.

“Here in Winchester we are very proud to be part of such a successful and well-established agency like Connells. 80 years in business is a great achievement and testimony to the fantastic service and people we have employed throughout the years,” Oliver continues.

In its 80 years Connells has grown, combining its core estate agency business with a wide range of complimentary disciplines including lettings, new homes, mortgage services, conveyancing, surveying and asset management, to name a few. Connells offers a wide range of professional home moving services – to local home buyers, sellers and investors, and is on hand to help with any property requirements.
