Estate agents Pygott & Crone have opened a new office in Horncastle to meet increasing demand for sales and lettings services in the area.
The new office, located at 5 High Street, has created five new jobs in the market town and is the Lincolnshire-based agency’s 12th office in the county.
Kevin Scrupps, director at Pygott & Crone, said: “Horncastle is a thriving market town, steeped in history.
“The industry is becoming more digitally focused, and customers have adapted to this technology. It’s easier for buyers to view properties online but, at some point, they will need support and need to see an agent with the appropriate knowledge and expertise.
“Buying and selling a house can be stressful and we believe that by bringing these interactive, touchscreen screens into the office, an informal setting is created whereby customers can view a properties at ease, helping to alleviate this stress.
“We have a welcoming office of staff with excellent local knowledge to make customers feel at home. Pygott & Crone wants to remain visible to the public and to retain and attract new customers in the area.”
