Successfully selling and letting homes since 2002, Morris Armitage has reached an impressive milestone this year. We spoke to the team at Morris Armitage to find out how they plan to celebrate
What is Morris Armitage doing to celebrate its 20th Anniversary?
We’re so proud to be in our 20th year. To celebrate, the team will be spending the day at Newmarket Races - where else would we want to celebrate other than our town’s fabulous racecourse! We are also planning our first staff charity event to take place later this year with a plan for this to become a yearly event.
How has the business changed over the past two years?
We have gone from strength to strength. The last two years have been exceptionally busy and we’re lucky to have a highly experienced team who has taken it all in their stride, making sure that all our clients receive the high levels of service they are used to receiving.
Why did the business decide to relocate to its current address in Newmarket?
As the business expanded, we needed larger premises and were fortunate that this beautiful, historic building in the heart of the town was available to become our permanent home.
Where are the other branches of the business?
We are very lucky to have offices in Downham Market, where the business was born and where James Armitage continues to lead the way in Estate Agency. After opening our offices here in Newmarket - headed up by Simon Morris, the joint Director - the company has since expanded in to Cambridge with a centrally based office and team. We also have our Burwell office serving the ever-popular village of Burwell and the surrounding area.
What is different about Morris Armitage to other estate agents?
Being an independent agent, we have the flexibility to adapt to suit our local market. Our teams are made up of local people who all have excellent knowledge of the area they work in, along with a vast amount of experience within the property sector (our Newmarket office alone has over 100 years of experience between them!!)
Our teams are all long serving within the company so we are well known for our superb local knowledge and our friendly and hardworking team who always has our clients as their priority. This is noticeable with the relationships we have built over the years and the loyalty we receive from our clients.
