Finally, ideology consulting maintains contacts with an extensive number of estate agency / property groups who are looking to expand their existing operations by acquisition.

The larger estate agency groups are particularly interested in smaller companies with primary premises, significant rental portfolio’s and/or an outstanding trading record. Equally, we have registered a significant number of progressive small and medium sized companies that are looking to expand their existing branch network.

So if you own an independent estate agency, and are looking to retire or divest your interest in your business – we would be pleased to advise you of your options – even if you are just simply in the early stages of planning your exit.
