AS PART of its programme of expansion the team at Brown & Cockerill Estate Agents has recently appointed Carl Watts as its new managing director.

Carl is a highly experienced estate agent, with over 15 years’ experience in the residential property industry across all avenues of sales and new homes in the local housing market.

He was ‘head-hunted’ from his post as property consultant at one of Rugby’s leading agents and is already a lynchpin in the ever-growing Brown & Cockerill organisation.

Brown & Cockerill joint director Bal Singh said: “This is a great move for the company. I have great respect for Carl, who I have competed against for many years.

“It is a pleasure to have him as part of our highly experienced and proactive team. “This also demonstrates our rapidly expanding profile in the area and offers all of our current and future clients the peace of mind that they are dealing with one of the area’s most highly regarded agents.”

Carl, who grew up and lives in Rugby, said he is very excited about his new appointment.

“My decision to invest in Brown & Cockerill Estate Agents felt quite natural. I have known Bal for many years and admire the way he has grown his company through the very difficult times of the recession, to result in the successful and reputable company it is today.

Carl added: “It is great to be in charge and part of a forward-thinking company that is looking at how the market will evolve in the future and Brown & Cockerill are always looking ahead of the trends.

“The team here are experienced in all property matters and are best-placed to meet the needs of vendors as the market gets busier and busier.”

He said that the signs are already in place for more activity in the property market with seasonal trends returning and mortgage providers easing up on their strict lending policies.

Brown & Cockerill offer a wide range of services including sales, lettings, property management, premier & new homes, land and development, international homes and mortgage services.
