Two acquisitions add to agency’s fast-growing lets portfolio

The Miles & Barr Group has snapped up two lettings and property management companies  – Roger & Hambidge and Brettsletts. 

The acquisitions mean the independently owned Kent-focussed Miles & Barr Group has significantly expanded its lettings portfolio.

Simon Thompson, lettings director, says: “The purchase of Roger & Hambidge is an exciting venture for us because it has 150 years of block management know-how and it is this knowledge that adds a complementary and exciting specialism to Miles & Barr’s proposition.”

Roger & Hambidge’s former owners, Jo and Paul King, will continue to contribute to the business on a consultancy basis. Miles & Barr’s block management services will focus on the management of residential blocks providing a variety of specialised services on behalf of freeholders and the lessees. 

The acquisition of Bretstletts, a boutique lettings agency started by a husband and wife duo, will add further managed properties to Miles & Barr’s portfolio. Brettsletts’ founding partners will also provide continuing consultancy services while the company transitions to Miles & Barr Lettings. 

The latest acquisitions follow that of Advanced Lettings in 2020. 

Miles & Barr has three dedicated letting branches in Thanet, Canterbury and Dover, as well as 12 sales office across East Kent.
