Estate agency Chesterton Global has re-entered the valuation market with its purchase of Moss Kaye Pemberton.
Moss Kaye Pemberton is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of the Solitaire Group. It is a long standing firm of chartered surveyors and property consultants based in Swiss Cottage.
Chesterton chief executive Robert Bartlett says: “We have been looking for the right opportunity to diversify into other property service sectors and specifically to provide valuation services. Moss Kaye Pemberton enables us to facilitate this with a highly regarded professional valuation team.
He adds: “Furthermore it will provide us with our first opportunity to re-enter the commercial market and will significantly increase the size of the property management team we acquired recently from Copping Joyce and Stickley & Kent. This all forms a part of our plan to eventually provide a full service property firm, complementing our highly successful UK and international residential property division.”
Moss Kaye Pemberton spokesman Eric Shapiro says: “Chesterton’s prestigious brand and the impressive momentum in building the business were key factors in the decision to become part of the team. There is clearly huge potential to further develop the services that we provide alongside Chesterton.”
The business will fully integrate as of 30th June.
