We have long-standing roots in Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan and RCT and with this acquisition, we are well-placed in the heart of the vibrant Newport housing market.“When the opportunity came up with Nuttall Parker, it was the perfect fit and ideal acquisition to build on our presence in the area.”Staff retainedNuttall Parker will remain in Newport with all staff retained and Lesley Woodsford-Lloyd managing (top, third right) the day-to-day running of the business as associate partner, with former director Leigh Edwards staying on in a consultancy capacity.She says: “Being part of the Seraph Group means the team will be supported by a wider property network that benefits clients from its enhanced range of services; including sales, lettings, property management and block management.”Read more about the Welsh estate agency scene. Nuttall Parker Seraph Property management Lesley Woodsford-Lloyd March 30, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
