North Devon Coast

Collyers, the Experts in Property estate and lettings agency with a duo of branches in North Devon, has extended its expertise into South Hams with the acquisition of a lettings agency in Kingsbridge.

Appledore Lettings, on Fore Street in the attractive estuary town, is now part of Collyers, the award-winning, family-owned estate and lettings agency, and rebranding of the office fascia’s, marketing material and advertising boards with the Collyers’ distinctive purple and lime colours is now underway. 

With a portfolio of around 350 managed properties in and around the Barnstaple and Bideford areas of North Devon, Collyers has been letting property since 2011 and has a growing bank of loyal landlords and tenants. Collyers’ team of reliable and efficient property professionals has oodles of experience and every member is highly trained in every aspect of caring for property, particularly in the ever-expanding accumulation of lettings legislation.

Collyers has retained two staff members in the Kingsbridge office – Nadine MacLennan, who has now been promoted to the position of branch manager, and Corinne Mcdonnel-Purbrick. James Collyer, owner of the trio of branches, is spending a considerable amount of time in Kingsbridge to ensure a smooth transition for landlord and tenant clients, and is in the process of adding to the team.

Collyers’ acquisition of Appledore Lettings has expanded its portfolio to over 400 properties, stretching across North Devon and the whole of South Hams.

James said: “We were looking to expand and we chose South Hams over agencies in Bristol as we know the area well and like it, it’s very similar to North Devon with its beautiful scenery, coastline and attractive landscape and properties. We are pleased to have been able to keep Nadine and Corinne – they are both assets to the business with excellent customer and organisational skills, an existing rapport with local clients and a great deal of knowledge on the area and the properties within it.”
