Savills estate agent in Bishop's Stortford to move from North Street to Corn Exchange building
Savills is planning to move to a new home in the heart of Bishop's Stortford.
The estate and letting agent is to relocate from its premises in North Street to a new des res at the Corn Exchange in Market Square.
The business, which has been in the town for 20 years, will be moving in to the former Toni and Guy hair salon, which ceased trading in November 2019 after 22 years.
The new office is due to open in June. It will provide a bespoke business space for Savills' residential and new homes team, together with a client area and boardroom.
Head of office Justin Godfrey said: "We will, of course, be very sad to say goodbye to our old office in North Street. It's been a wonderful base for several years, surrounded by some superb local businesses.
"However, the new premises at the Corn Exchange will offer a modern, efficient and flexible open-plan design that suits the way our teams work together to best meet the needs of our clients, without losing touch with our neighbours and local contacts.
"It was very important for us to continue to operate within the town centre and the move demonstrates our commitment to Bishop's Stortford and the wider Hertfordshire community.
"The office has a large frontage and is in a prominent position in a great part of town, allowing us to be even more visible.
"We believe it will serve us well for the future and we're very much looking forward to this next chapter and the opportunities ahead."
