The merger offers benefits to both parties with broadening the companies' offerings and developing client relationships across the Wimborne, Bournemouth and Dorset areas.
With a larger offering and more clients supported, the move is also expected to create more career opportunities within the local areas.
Primmer Olds B.A.S director, Duane Walker, was ebullient, citing Dorset as an ideal location due to its ever-growing commercial property sector and is excited about the future of the region. He said: ‘As a firm we are delighted to be able to welcome Patrick and the wider team to Primmer Olds B.A.S. We share many values and believe the Dorset region has an exciting future. It brings us great pride knowing that, alongside our new colleagues, we will be supporting our clients across Bournemouth and the surrounding areas to realise their property dreams and ambitions. This is a significant moment in our firm's 34-year history.’
Willis Commercial director, Patrick Willis, has similar thoughts, and says the move will bolster the service offering. He said: ‘Following the inception of Willis Commercial in 2010 our aim has always been to support our clients with transactions in the Bournemouth, Wimborne and Christchurch areas. We wholeheartedly believe in the Primmer Olds B.A.S ethos of adding value to clients through commercial property and following this acquisition, I am very proud of the fact that we can now serve our current and future clients with consultancy across all areas of the property lifecycle.’
Primmer Olds B.A.S offers services such as valuation, building surveying, commercial sales and lettings, property management as well as architecture and project management throughout the South Hampshire region.
Willis Commercial specialises in sales and lettings for commercial properties across a range of sectors throughout East Dorset.
