Leading estate agent Hamptons International is delighted to be celebrating its 150th birthday this year. To commemorate this impressive milestone, the business has planned a series of events and campaigns which will take place throughout the year.
Hamptons International started life in 1869 with an office in Pall Mall, eight members of staff, and at its helm George Hampton as Managing Director. Fast forward 150 years and Hamptons International now has a network of over 90 offices in London and the South of the UK employing over 1,000 members of staff. Outside the UK, Hamptons International is represented in over 30 countries around the world providing buyers with access to over 100,000 international properties.
Celebrations to mark the 150th birthday will run throughout 2019 and began on 2 January – the first working day after the Christmas break - with every member of staff being given their birthday as an extra day’s leave in this anniversary year. January will also see a fleet of 15 Hamptons International branded taxis, take to the streets of London. While for Hamptons International clients the 150th property of the year to be sold or let will be done so for free.
Hamptons has also committed to make 2019 its biggest year of fundraising yet, and in support of the business’s ongoing commitment to charity partner Cancer Research UK (CRUK), Hamptons International has introduced “Challenge 150”. This is an internal initiative whereby each member of staff takes on the challenge to raise £150
