Gatekeeper makes its next move, in another turn away from tradition

Traditionally, estate and letting agents have found an office in a pricey High Street position, opening further pricey branches as they expand. For eleven years now, Gatekeeper has been operating in five key towns within an hour’s drive of its central office - keeping costs low and team synergy strong.

Now, with rapid expansion and success in both sales and letting, Gatekeeper are making a move away from the High Street and into an office which will provide its team with flexible space and a great working environment.

“Offering fantastic service is at the heart of everything we set out to achieve with Gatekeeper” says Mat Symons, Owner and Sales Director. “It’s crucial that we support this by giving our team a great place to work, with spaces for collaborative discussion.”

Gatekeeper’s new home will be Kingfisher Court in Witney - a commercial space in residential Madley Park, with a waterside terrace where staff can meet and take a break. The office will be largely open plan, giving sales, letting and property management staff the opportunity to work together, in daily contact with the Owners and Directors.

Patrick Brady, Owner and Managing Director explains “Gatekeeper aims to offer every customer more as standard. This includes offering a better price; keeping a single office structure reduces the costs that are passed on to customers. It also means service is better and consistent across our areas - there’s more experienced input into decisions, and we don’t suffer from the fluctuations in process often seen in small branches”.

The new office will be open from 23rd November... The challenge is whether an estate and letting agent can stick to their own moving day deadline!
