Leading North East chartered surveyors and estate agents Bradley Hall celebrated further business expansion with a launch event at its new Sunderland office.

The official launch event at the company’s sixth commercial and residential office on Fredrick Street in the city centre, was attended by The Deputy Mayor of Sunderland Cllr Lynda Scanlan, Mr Michael Arnott, Honorary Alderman for the City of Sunderland, and guests from the Sunderland business community.

Councillor Lynda Scanlan said: “The Bradley Hall office is another welcome addition to Sunderland city centre and the professional services that have offices and bases here.

“We’re seeing a lot of development across the city from industrial and business developments to more housing, and there is more development planned in the coming years.

“This all means there is demand for commercial and residential property services and I’m very pleased to see that Bradley Hall recognises that demand, and that they are helping to meet it with this investment in the city centre.

“As a regional company investing in Sunderland, we wish its team well and we look forward to their continuing success.”

Bradley Hall launches its Sunderland office to further cement the firm’s presence in the south of the region, adding to its already well-established office in Durham. The property company operates across the North East, from Middlesbrough to Berwick, with a strategic growth plan which has seen the creation of offices across key areas in the North East.

Chartered surveyor Emma Graham and Lauren Gill join the team, with plans to create new roles in coming months

Bradley Hall operations director, Catherine Affleck, said: “The launch of our new office is another fantastic achievement for Bradley Hall.

“Sunderland is a great city with a lot to offer, so it was a natural next step for us to launch an office offering both commercial and residential opportunities for local people. We are a truly regional company and our growth has allowed us to offer our services from every corner of the North East.

“We are also pleased to welcome our new team members who have already proven to be a great asset to Bradley Hall. Thanks to the expansion we are also looking forward to creating more jobs and welcoming new colleagues with the best knowledge of the industry.

“Our new branch has some beautiful homes and an extensive range of commercial properties already on offer and we are looking forward to taking on more projects and clients, while continuously adding some of the most impressive North-East homes to our marketed properties.”

The agency’s sister company, BH Mortgages, is also set to offer its services from the new offices. Home buyers are offered access to free, independent mortgage advice from expert advisors from all Bradley Hall offices.
