Bloore and King Sales & Lettings - Celebrating 10 wonderful years in business

This month marks our 10 year anniversary here in Halesowen and what a roller coaster it has been over 10 (mostly) glorious years!!

In February 2008, who would have thought that we would end up by September that year in the middle of one of the worst recessions the world has ever seen.  I remember someone on the news likening it to the great depression....which of course really did make us all depressed.

At that time it was just me, Louise and John (with Emma joining us very shortly after) and that made life very hard for those first few years.....but we fought through it and we are all so proud of the work we did and the business we have created over these 10 years.   It is testament to the tenacity and never give up attitude that we had back in those dark days (and still carry with us today) to ensure that we not only survived....but flourished in what was one of the worst markets in living memory.  I think living through those times has made us firstly appreciate what we have now but also it has made us better people and ultimately a better business for it.

Louise, John and I would like to thank our staff, both old and new for their continued support and loyalty.  Emma who has been with us since almost the start has seen both the good times and the bad.  She has been a rock to this business and especially to Louise and I and I don’t think we would be where we are without her.  Lisa has been with us for 2 ½ years now and has simply taken over the sales progression service with a tenacity and professionalism rarely seen in this trade.  Jo and Katie have proved invaluable and Narisa is fast becoming an integral part of the team as she learns the trade.

We would also like to thank our customers, client’s buyers, landlords and tenants for their support over the years as without them we would not have a business. 

We always have and always will strive to bring a fresh new approach to the world of selling houses and we are all excited to see what the next 10 years have installed for us.

All the best
