Leading residential agency, Hamptons International has today announced that it has acquired Patterson Bowe, a highly-respected bespoke property and lettings agency operating in Knightsbridge, Kensington and Chelsea.
Established over 25 years ago, the independent agency is proud to have built a reputation as one of the most successful Lettings Partnerships in Central London and to date, has handled the lettings transactions of some of the Capital’s finest properties.
Patterson Bowe staff will join Hamptons International’s Knightsbridge branch with immediate effect. The team will continue to offer the same personal service to clients as they always have done, but now as part of a foremost residential estate agent and property services company. Directors of the agency, Stuart Patterson and Allister Bowe will take on consultancy roles within Hamptons’ Knightsbridge office.
Hamptons International has identified the strength of Patterson Bowe Lettings portfolio and the combined experience, expertise and specialised client service offered by its staff. The acquisition therefore reflects the company’s intentions to target only the very best people and estate agencies.
Commenting on the acquisition, Lesley Cairns, Head of Lettings at Hamptons International said: “We are delighted to have acquired Patterson Bowe; one of Prime London’s most esteemed Lettings agencies. Through organic and acquisitive growth, the Lettings division at Hamptons International has doubled in size over the past eight years and today’s acquisition reflects the company’s strategic plan to further expand its marketshare. We are very much looking forward to welcoming staff and customers of Patterson Bowe into our organisation, who as new employees and clients of Hamptons International will have access to a wealth of benefits and opportunities that come with being part of a large network.”
Stuart Patterson, Director at Patterson Bowe, added: “We are extremely pleased with this acquisition by an internationally recognised brand that shares the same values and ethos as Patterson Bowe.
