Experienced Agent Promoted

To South Lancashire Office

Armitstead Barnett has welcomed Tom Hargreaves to head up the agency department of its South Lancashire office

Tom has been with Armitstead Barnett, based in the North Lancashire office for almost two years and has excelled in listing and negotiating on a broad range of properties. Growing from strength to strength it is now time for Tom to spread his wings further and take the helm of the agency department in the South Lancashire Office. Tom lives in Chorley so is perfectly located to service the villages surrounding Chorley, running through to south of Preston and Ormskirk.

In the South Lancashire office, based in Burscough, Tom is supported by Alex Blundell who is familiar with the Ormskirk area along with Melanie Hodkinson who has plenty of property experience and knows the area well. Mark Heaton and Kelly Roberts remain an important part of the team working in valuation and development, beautifully complementing the agency.

Hannah Towers, Partner, Head of Agency said: “I couldn’t think of a better candidate for the job. Tom started with us in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic and immediately showed great promise, grit, determination and a real flare for property agency. It was a natural progression for him in an area he knows well. He will be missed from our North Lancashire team as he is a great character in the office. I believe the commute to Longton Tennis Club is much shorter than it is from Garstang, so it was a no brainer for him! We look forward to seeing the office and team flourish. I have every confidence in them all.”

Armitstead Barnett traces its roots back to 1890 in Lancaster and has always served the rural and village sector in land and property matters. With four offices in Garstang, Kendal, Burscough and Clitheroe the business covers most of the north west and is well-placed to look after not only residential sales, but commercial, equestrian and agricultural business.

Hannah added: “We are proud of our traditional values and working methods but over the decades have also adapted our business model with the times. What is clear is that our clients appreciate the breadth of services that Armitstead Barnett is able to provide, working across a number of different platforms to ensure that we offer a bespoke and tailored service to each and every one – whether a quirky character cottage – or large farm with hectares of land.”
