AN estate agency with offices in the Colne Valley has been named one of the best in the UK.
Cater Jonas, which has a branch in Slaithwaite and operates four offices across Yorkshire, was placed 10th in the Estate Agency Times Top 100 for 2008.
The achievement follows 10 years of growth and investment for the firm’s residential property business, which also has an office in London’s Knightsbridge and plans to open another site in the capital shortly.
Partner Tony Wright said: “As a multi-faceted firm we are in the position of being able to advise on all aspects of property.
“So while we might sell someone a period barn for them to undertake their ‘grand design’, we are also able to help with securing the necessary planning permission and perhaps in addition acquire them some adjoining or nearby land for a paddock.
“We believe it is this breadth of knowledge and expertise that has helped us to be recognised as one of the country’s top 10 leading estate agents.”
