“My team has worked in­cred­i­bly hard to es­tab­lish Roberts Newby as a mar­ket-lead­ing es­tate agency lo­cally and,

EQ­UITY PART­NER: Si­mon Roberts com­ing to­gether with Strutt & Parker, will com­ple­ment two es­tab­lished and high­lythought-of busi­nesses, forg­ing a very strong ser­vice propo­si­tion to our clients go­ing for­ward.”

Andy Martin, se­nior part­ner at Strutt & Parker, said: “The ac­qui­si­tion of Roberts Newby rep­re­sents a key part of our ex­pan­sion strat­egy and will pro­vide us with an ex­pert team of agents who have an un­ri­valled un­der­stand­ing of south Buck­ing­hamshire as the es­tab­lished num­ber one agent in the re­gion.

“We iden­ti­fied Roberts Newby as a busi­ness that shares our val­ues and is com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing the best ser­vice for buy­ers, sellers, ten­ants and land­lords.”

Garry Brown, chair­man of Busi­ness and Traders for Chal­font St Giles (BAT4CSG), said: “The ul­ti­mate aim for any busi­ness is to build it up and sell it.

“Mr Roberts is just play­ing the nor­mal game. It’s good news and well done to Si­mon for build­ing it up to that level.

“The amal­ga­ma­tion will make it much more stream­lined, it opens up op­por­tu­ni­ties to his staff.

“It’s all good news all round and I’m very sup­port­ive, and we wish him all the luck.”
