This month our Poole Townsend team celebrates 25 years in our home in Kendal’s Market Place. Since we opened our doors we believe we’ve conducted over 4,500 property sales in our area - that’s over 3 properties a week. Alongside our conveyancing and mortgage clients, it’s a busy office to work in.

We’ve seen many changes over the last 25 years as you can imagine and that’s just with our branding! 

Founding member Angela, now our Operations Manager, started in property sales and remembers sticking photographs on A4 print outs at the weekend ready to be displayed in our branches or mail out to prospective buyers. ‘Now we can have a property online within an hour of the photographs being taken, emailed out to prospective buyers, posted on social media, and viewings booked.’

It’s a similar story in our mortgage department. Lyn, who also started when the office opened, can now secure a mortgage for a client within a couple of hours from a high street bank, which would have been unheard of 25 years ago.

Over Angela and Lyn’s 25 years at Poole Townsend they have worked through market crashes where nothing moved, times of high demand when they couldn’t get enough properties for both sales and lettings, and mortgage interest rates ranging from 10% to 2%.

Experience is everything in an estate agency and it runs throughout the Kendal team. Craig has been our valuation expert for the last 18 years, Andrew in lettings has been with us for over 12 years, and our conveyancer Dan over 6 years. Collectively our Kendal team has 125 years of working at Poole Townsend, so we can provide expert advice whatever the market conditions at the time.
