We’re excited to announce the appointment of Ian Blanchford to the role of Partner of Helmores!
Ian started his property career in 1998 as a junior negotiator with an estate agency in Exeter, working his way up to a sales manager for a large national chain of estate agents. He joined Helmores in 2010 as a negotiator, then sales manager and most recently as a valuer and marketing specialist. He will start his new role with immediate effect, further utilising his extensive expertise and unrivalled knowledge of the mid-Devon property market.
Helmores has been independently family owned since 1699 and has been going from strength to strength in recent years, voted the Best Estate Agent in the UK and Best Estate Agent in the South West at the prestigious Guild of Property Professionals awards in January this year.
Rob Stoyle, owner of Helmores, said: “This promotion is a public recognition of the sterling work that Ian has done. He is a well loved member of the team and also of the community. Success in estate agency is local knowledge and Ian’s is second to none! His family is well known – as is his love of our local football club! As a business it makes a lot of sense to have him in this position. He is hard working and diligent and his pricing and market knowledge is excellent. To have him as part of this business ensures that the future of Helmores is in good hands. I’m thrilled that he has accepted this position.”
