Growth leads to jobs for Belfast estate agency

Fetherstons set for future growth following office expansion and rebrand

Estate agent Fetherstons has unveiled a new visual identity and completed an expansion of its south Belfast office following a £300,000 investment and the creation of four new jobs.

Fetherstons, formally Fetherston Clements, has doubled the floorspace of its Lisburn Road office and modernised its facilities, including a new boardroom, meeting rooms and state-of-the-art technology upgrade such as high-definition screens and giant touchscreens.

As part of the rebrand, the company has launched a new website, office signage and estate agent boards.

It also completed smaller renovation programmes of its Ballyhackamore and Bangor offices.

Partner Mike Fetherston said: “We’ve experienced considerable growth over the last number of years, including a 33% increase in sales and a 16% uplift in our letting and management division in the last 12 months alone.

“To support this, we have embarked on a significant brand transformation journey which has been more than just a name change and a new logo.

“It represents the evolution of the business, from when it was established in 2011 until now, and the energy and innovativeness of our teams.

“We have reshaped our corporate image into one that home-owners fully connect with and have further strengthened our position as a go-to estate agents for the Greater Belfast and North Down market.”

Fellow partner Will Miscampbell added: “Our leadership team has over 90 years combined experience and each one of us values the importance of developing our staff.

“In turn our retention rates are exemplary and this ensures we offer a first-class customer experience – in fact 82 per cent of the people who engage with us, book our services.

“It’s an exciting time for Fetherstons as we grow our market share and help our clients achieve the best possible prices for their properties. We have ambitious plans in place and we’re confident that this will enable us to continue on this growth trajectory in the months and years ahead.”
