Specialist property firm sets its sights on Hexham

Property consultancy George F. White is primed to support Hexham’s thriving property industry with the launch of a new office in the market town.

Located at Wentworth House, Wentworth Park, the new Hexham base comes following a period of substantial growth for the firm and will help to meet the growing demand it is seeing in the area.

Already with a large client portfolio spanning this part of Northumberland, George F. White’s new presence in Hexham will allow it to build upon the wide range of businesses it provides specialist advice to as part of its ongoing expansion.

A team of experts across the rural, planning and development and commercial sectors are already in place at Wentworth House, including Partners Tim Michie, Elliot Taylor, Craig Ross and Gary Robinson – all who have extensive experience in the region. The firm is looking to further expand the team in the coming months to support the growth of its client base.

George F. White is also launching its existing residential property service in Hexham due to the high demand for homes in the area.

Managing director, Sally Hart, commented on the expansion: “We’re in an exciting period of growth and I’m delighted to see this new location open as we have an increasing client base in Hexham and the surrounding Tyne Valley, Cumbria and Western Scotland, particularly across our rural, planning and development and commercial sectors. It also puts us in the best position to take advantage of new opportunities, alongside our expansion into the residential property sector.”

With Hexham named as the happiest place to live in the UK by property search giant Rightmove, more and more people are hoping to call it home. Google data shows that searches for ‘property for sale in Hexham’ has grown by 350 per cent in the last 10 years and George F. White is poised to respond.

Associate, Ed Seymour, who is the key residential valuer for the Hexham office, said: “Having worked in the Tyne Valley for the last few years, it is my experience that Hexham is a hugely popular place to live. The accolade from Rightmove, the second time it’s been named as the happiest place to live, is well deserved and will have played a part in the rise in interest from people looking to relocate to the area. With the uptake in flexible working, Hexham is likely to be popular as it’s well linked to Newcastle Upon Tyne, however, it retains its country charm with picturesque views, and quieter way of life.”
