Independent agency snapped up by chartered surveying business

A chartered surveying company has acquired a long established lettings agency in the same town in Greater Manchester.

Altrincham based firm Oakwood Valuation Surveyors Ltd has purchased Morrison Property Services.

Morrisons’ Jonathan Morrison retains a consultancy role with Oakwood to oversee the handover of clients. 

Morrisons was set up in Altrincham in 1875 and has established a portfolio of residential and commercial property management throughout north Cheshire, alongside a property agency.

Oakwood managing director Graham Bowcock says: “I set Oakwood up in 2019 to offer a full property advice service throughout the North West and have been seeking opportunities for acquisition. Morrison’s services complement our own and expands our client base as well as our range of services. The firm is well known locally and, like Oakwood, is professionally regulated as a firm of chartered surveyors.”

All three Morrisons staff, alongside Jonathan Morrison, will join the Oakwood team with immediate effect.

Morrison says: “It is a pleasure to hand over the business to a firm with a strong professional ethic and I am sure our clients will be well looked after under the Oakwood organisation. Graham has over 30 years significant property management experience and is an accomplished surveyor”.
