Kentish Express Ashford & District - East Kent Property - - HOMES NEWS -

Es­tate agent Strutt & Parker has been snapped up by the real es­tate di­vi­sion of French bank BNP Paribas.

The his­toric firm, which has branches in Can­ter­bury and Sevenoaks, will be merged with the prop­erty ser­vices firm’s UK sub­sidiary in Septem­ber. Se­nior part­ner Andy Martin said the deal, which brings to­gether 1,500 staff, gives the busi­ness “new im­pe­tus in a con­stantly-evolv­ing global mar­ket”.

The agency was founded by school friends Ed­ward Strutt and Charles Parker in Lon­don in 1885 and has 60 of­fices.
