Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

BAIRSTOW Eves fran­chisees in York­shire want to make it clear that it is busi­ness as usual af­ter a York-based prop­erty group bought the fran­chiser’s rights for BE from Coun­try­wide.

“The busi­nesses are still pri­vately-owned and op­er­ated by in­di­vid­u­als such as my­self,” says An­drew Proc­ter, of Bairstow Eves, Skip­ton.

The name and brand­ing will change to Hunters but the own­ers and teams in each of­fice will re­main the same.

“Clients have tele­phoned me ask­ing where I am go­ing to go, and I know other fran­chisees have had the same prob­lem,” says An­drew, “In fact, noth­ing will change with re­gards to the run­ning and staffing of the busi­nesses.”
