It is with great delight, that we announce that Ryder & Dutton have recently acquired the business of Mortimers estate agents. Whilst being integrated technologically with Ryder & Dutton, Mortimers will continue to trade under the same brand name it has established for itself within the area.
Mortimers is a long established and well respected Lancashire agency, with a number of offices located in Blackburn, Great Harwood, Accrington, Clitheroe and Whalley, along with a fine and country property office covering the Ribble Valley area.
This acquirement means that Ryder & Dutton will be one of the largest estate agents in the North, with a 26 office network, covering such areas as Greater Manchester, Lancashire, North Derbyshire and West Yorkshire.
Richard Powell, director at Ryder & Dutton said: "This is a very exciting opportunity for the directors and staff to create a business well placed to deal with the challenges of estate agency in the 21st Century. It brings together technology and new communication methods with traditional local knowledge and customer care, professionalism and high ethical values to provide a service suitable for properties and all people."
As part of the arrangement of the acquirement, Ian Lloyd of Mortimers will retire after 47 years of service, while Edward Snowden will be welcomed onto the board of directors at Ryder & Dutton.
