Industry recruitment bluechip Deverellsmith has told The Neg that it is launching the firm’s service for estate agencies across the UK.
The company, which specialises in finding candidates for a range of sectors including estate agency but also build to rent and new homes, has until now limited its coverage to the capital.
But following its acquisition of Nicola Broomham’s eponymous recruitment firm in 2022, a 15-strong team has now been assembled to give Deverellsmith national coverage.
“We have always been focused on central London and prime central London but when Andrew Deverell-Smith bought my recruitment firm the plan was always to expand, helped in part by all the data Broomham Recruitment held,” says Nicola Broomham.
“After my business was acquired it took another year or so for me move into a more of a ‘group’ role which included strengthening the estate agency team with a view to expanding with specialisms that include property management and mortgages.”
Broomham will now spearhead the move to national coverage working with larger estate agencies across the UK, aided by Associate Director, Tom Lambourne.
“We’ve already got relationships with national agencies that are both in London and the rest of the UK, but until now we haven’t had the bandwidth to help them outside the Capital,” she adds.
Andrew Deverell-Smith (pictured) says: “We couldn’t be more excited to confirm a national team within our estate agency division lead by the phenomenally talented Nicola and Tom.
“Ever since we launched 18 years ago estate agency has been one of our core markets on which we focus within real estate. I could not be prouder of our team and its unrivalled market knowledge.”
