A happy union our merger with Bacon and Co lettings, and Bacon and Co Lancing

The month since we merged with Bacon and Co Lancing and Bacon and Co Lettings to become Michael Jones and Bacon has flown by and we’re pleased to report that the new partnership has been well received thus far.

Both sales and lettings are thriving and as expected the combined skills of our integrated teams have created a workforce that’s more robust and dynamic than ever.

Indeed, we can attribute much of our initial success to the trustworthy, approachable and incredibly well-organised work ethos of the conjoined Michael Jones and Bacon and Co.

There’s been a busy, industrious atmosphere in the Lancing Lettings office on Crabtree Lane in recent weeks; we had staff settling in to their new surroundings, well-wishers popping in to give congratulations and of course a constant stream of familiar landlords and tenants from the area. Hayley Scammell, Bacon and Co’s former lettings director who has stepped into the same position at Michael Jones and Bacon gives us her account:

“One month on from the amalgamation, I am delighted to report that the transaction has gone exceptionally smoothly, and our clients have sent many words of congratulations. They have been reassured in the knowledge that two reputable local letting agents have joined forces meaning that we can offer a wider range of services and increased marketing. My focus is, and always has been, to offer excellent customer service to landlords and tenants which is supported by my friendly and approachable team.

I’ve visited several prospective landlords recently where they had previously asked Michael Jones and Bacon to value their property for rental, and now they wish to instruct us to market their property they are finding they are getting the best of both worlds”.

It’s been a similar story in the Lancing Sales office, where the formation of an extended team has already proved prosperous for our customers. We caught up with Gary Evans, our Lancing sales director, about their latest achievements since the merger:

 “We couldn’t be more pleased with the introduction of Michael Jones and Bacon. It’s been a great start and we’re delighted to report a record number of sales in Lancing and Sompting this November”.

“In one development alone, we sold 3 apartments and let another. There is a buoyant market here at present and we can say with confidence that we are meeting the growing demand following the recent partnership – of course it helps that we now have a team of seven people with over 150 years local agency experience”.

“Keeping true to our values, we remain dedicated to serving both our customers and the wider community. As well as sponsoring every first and middle school in Lancing and Sompting we were the main sponsor once again for the recent Adur Sea Of Lights Christmas event. If anything, our commitment to supporting local events and organisations has broadened as a result of the merger and we aim to increase this further still in the future”.
