Hunter French buy-in to Frome in 2013

IMG_2440A renewed positivity in the UK housing market combined with Frome’s growing popularity has  encouraged Bath’s well respected independent estate agent to open a new office on Catherine Hill.

Hunter French, the town and country property specialists, identified Frome as an up and coming place to live in the west country and focussed on maximising the business opportunity by investing in the town in early 2013.

Ben Hansell, Director at Hunter French Frome, commented:

“Frome’s artisan feel, beautiful surrounding villages and excellent transport links made opening an office here a must for Hunter French in 2013. I fell in love with the town as a result of visiting on a regular basis to see my wife’s family, and it just seems to be getting more and more popular. Whether its ex-city dwellers looking for a move to the countryside, or young families looking for more space and a sound investment, Frome seems to have a bit of everything”.

The new office opened for business on 28th January 2013, and the team are confident they bring something quite different to house buying and selling in the region:

“We are dedicated to providing an unrivalled service to our vendors with a real personal touch and regular feedback and updates. We offer bespoke marketing, which includes quality sales particulars , professional photography and detailed floor plans at no extra charge. We provide advertising in The Somerset Standard, The Somerset Guardian, The Bath Chronicle as well as embracing social media for marketing purpose; a great tool for selling and buying that a lot of agents aren’t utilising”.

Hunter French Estate Agents was formed in 2005 by Stephen Hunter and Karen Dumine. Concentrating a specialism in country property the company has grown rapidly over the last seven years, with a 2nd office opening in Corsham in 2007, shortly followed by a 3rd in Devizes in 2012.
