Dawsons aquisition of SA1 & Marina Properties

Leading Swansea estate agent announces acquisition of marina property firm

Dawsons Property has announced a merger with Marina & SA1 Properties.

The takeover sees two well established, local and trusted companies combining in a bid to enhance customer experience and other professional services to clients in the Maritime quarter.

The merger has been a seamless transition which sees the Marina & SA1 Property clients benefit from the thorough planning and cooperation of both teams from the very outset, and as the summer months move forward.

“What a great acquisition this has already proven to be, and we are already looking to the future and building what will be a special team and presence in the Marina for the exciting times ahead,” said Ricky Purdy, Director of Residential Lettings.

“The transition has been a smooth one, with our new clients at the forefront of our objectives.

“We hope to continue this process during the weeks ahead at several open evenings and meet-the-team events that we are to hold over the summer months.

“We know how important continuity is, and agent/client rapport, so meeting in person makes for a great start to our long term working relationships.”

The Marina & SA1 Properties will now display the Dawsons brand.

The Marina and SA1 staff along with Dawsons’ Marina staff, who have been with us since the opening day at the Marina six years ago, have already formed a formidable team focusing on customer service.

Having already established a strong presence in the Marina, supported by their four other rental offices elsewhere within Swansea and Llanelli, the Dawsons brand looks to establish itself further within the Marina in readiness for the continued developments both independent and those related to the University.

With the merger, coming over to Dawsons are Irene Williams and Delyth Evans.

Irene has extensive customer service and lettings and sales negotiation experience. She is knowledgeable about the local area and property values in Swansea. She is motivated to help you sell or rent your property as quickly as possible by providing a knowledge-based valuation together with a friendly and informative service.

Delyth provides bookkeeping and accounts support. She is the “go to” lady for people who have queries about your statements or rent payments and is providing invaluable back office support to the busy front office team.
