As part of our ongoing expansion programme, we are delighted to announce the acquisition of ‘Property In’ a renowned residential sales, lettings, and property management business in Dulwich.

 Neil Steve

Founded at the turn of the millennium by industry veterans — husband and wife duo Stephen and Helen Smith — ‘Property In’ has been one of the most successful independent agents in Dulwich for almost two decades, and revered for their dedicated personal service. Stephen Smith said of the sale, “Since opening our doors, the industry has changed, and although we welcome the increased compliance and legislation, it has been taking me away from the core aspects of the job that I love. For my wife and I, it feels the right time to change our focus, and having known Acorn and their CEO Robert Sargent for almost as long as we have been in business, his company seemed a natural choice and one that would build on our excellent reputation and provide an exciting home for our team.” 

Robert Sargent added “We are the UK’s largest multi-brand boutique estate agency group and ‘Property In’ is a perfect fit for our existing stable which includes; Acorn, John Payne, Langford Russell, Start Financial Services & MAP Surveyors. Probably the most important part of an acquisition like this, is the experienced personnel who join our existing teams as a result.

“The Acorn Group is a privately owned company and remain 100% committed to a full-service estate agency model with prime high street offices, offering the very best online and offline marketing. Our offices are all genuinely networked with a shared database and an unrestricted marketing budget. We employ the best people in the industry, in the most high profile office locations, allowing us to guide our clients through the entire moving process. We strive to deliver a service that is unparalleled, ensuring we can swiftly complete transactions at the very best prices for our clients.”

Existing clients of ‘Property In’ can rest assured that the service they have been receiving from Steve and his team will continue uninterrupted, and all the existing phone and email contact details remain the same to reach their dedicated member of the ‘Property In’ team.
