We are delighted to announce that we have successfully acquired West End Estates, extending our network to six offices across central London.

Based in West Hampstead, West End Estates has been established 20 years and over that time Ralph Kossman and his team have built up a portfolio of more than 400 properties.

Neil Nichols, Financial Director, explains what he liked about the business. "West End Estates is a household name in West Hampstead with a reputation for reliability and getting the job done. It is an excellent geographical fit with the Edmund Cude network of offices being only a 10 minute drive from our Camden branch, with the opportunity to deliver a greater choice of tenants to our landlords by sharing applicants across the offices."

Ralph Kossman, after more than three decades in the property business, explains how he made the decision to sell. “When agreeing to sell the business it was important that the purchaser ticked various boxes such as looking after all our landlords as well as our loyal sales staff. In this respect we were impressed by the ethics and values of the team at Edmund Cude and their commitment to outstanding customer service. They also have first class internal management and letting systems, which will mean that our landlords will shortly be able to access their documents and portfolio information online.”

Alex Vinter, our Commercial Director (pictured on the right), has taken over Ralph's day-to-day responsibilities with Oliver Kent continuing to run the team of negotiators.
