Relocation and recruitment as Wells McFarlane sees positive growth

Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants, Wells McFarlane has expanded with a new premises and team members.

The Lutterworth-based firm has relocated from the town centre to St John’s Business Park in a move that will facilitate further growth.

“Lutterworth has been our hometown since we started the business almost 20 years ago and it has a thriving local community that we were keen to remain a part of,” explains Wells McFarlane’s director and co-founder, Andrew McFarlane Holt. “However, as we looked towards the future, our previous premises no longer aligned with our plans for growth and therefore the decision was made to move.

“The office at St John’s is modern and open plan, meaning our teams can collaborate more easily and efficiently. It has a breakout area, dedicated client meeting facilities including a board room and private offices for confidential transactions, and will enable us to better accommodate hybrid and flexible working patterns. Recruitment can also be accelerated, with ample space to expand our commercial property or land and development teams,” adds Andrew.

Since relocating, Wells McFarlane has already taken on two new members of staff. Pip Johnstone joins as an assistant asset manager/PA, while Lesley McQuade has been appointed as PA to director, Jason Hercock. Both are supporting the firm’s residential and commercial teams with marketing, lease renewals and administrative duties.

Director and co-founder, Trevor Wells says: “Despite some challenging market conditions and uncertainty particularly surrounding the office market post-Covid, our business has performed strongly so we’ve actively recruited, adding talented professionals like Pip and Lesley who have both fitted in seamlessly.

“This positive performance can be seen across all areas of our expertise, from land sales that will enable the creation of new homes or agricultural jobs to the increased amount of office and industrial parks we now have in our management portfolio.

“Of course, a key differential in our growth this year was being ranked as the CoStar number one agent for office and investment deals in Leicester and the East Midlands. This independent award confirmed to existing and potential clients our solid understanding of the market, its drivers and key trends, and that they can be assured of the most robust and considered advice to maximise assets or secure the best deals.

“As we plan ahead for next year, our 21st birthday and our longer-term growth, we’re confident we now have the right people in the right place to achieve further success,” concludes Trevor.
