New Owners Move In At Tyne Valley Estate Agency

Issue 103

Jessica and Jonathan Landale take over Anton Estates.

Anyone who has bought or sold a house will know what a stressful time it can be. It’s a similar story if you have rental property. Every Budget announcement always seems to include some complicated legislation.

Thankfully the new owners of one of the region’s most established property firms, have the sort of experience that can lead you through the maze.

Jessica and Jonathan Landale, who between them have spent 40 years in the property business, have recently completed their own bit of property buying…they’ve taken over Anton Estates in Corbridge.

“It’s a perfect fit for us because we live in the Tyne Valley, we know the state of the property market in this part of the North East and we’re taking over a fully established estate agency which has been successful for approaching 30 years,” said Jessica Landale. “The foundations of this estate agency are solid…and we’re going to build on them and make our own mark because we will do things differently to the previous owner.

The key thing to remember when it comes to any sort of buying, selling or renting of property is that, although you’re dealing with bricks and mortar, you’re also dealing with people. We put people at the heart of everything we do.”

Taking over an established estate agency in their own back yard was a logical move for Jessica and Jonathan.

“Jessica has been involved in the property business since she left school, and I have worked as a land agent since I was at university.” adds Jonathan. “We have our own successful property rental company, Cosmo Grace Property based in Newcastle, and we also have our own property portfolio. Consequently, this was the next logical move for us. We’ve been looking at various businesses across the region and have been planning to extend our rental and property management business into the Tyne Valley, so when we were approached about taking over Anton Estates, which is situated in the centre of Corbridge, it was the perfect fit…we jumped at it and are overjoyed with the response.”

There will still be the familiar team working from the existing agency on Corbridge Middle Street. The company has worked closely with many of the families who live in and around Corbridge and along the Tyne Valley and Jessica and Jonathan want to maintain those relationships.

“Anton Estates is so well-established that we’re now dealing with the second generation of some families,” says Jessica. “That’s part of the benefit of an estate agency like this…it has such a wonderful reputation that it’s become a go-to business for anyone who is looking to buy, sell or rent property in the Tyne Valley region. We’ll also be extending the lettings and property maintenance aspect of Anton Estates. Property rental is tricky due to the amount of legislation but thanks to our extensive experience in this field, we can help point people in the right direction. We’re also proactive when it comes to property. We have a list of clients and we actively contact them whenever we feel there is something in which they’ll be interested.”

Jessica and Jonathan Landale have accumulated the sort of experience which is invaluable to anyone who is looking to buy, sell or rent. Such is Jessica’s level of experience that she’s recently completed her Propertymark Level 4 Certificate in Residential Lettings and Property Management for which she is now the ARLA Regional Executive for the North East.

And they’ve hit the ground running when it comes to properties they can offer. Go onto to their website www. and you’ll see some very desirable properties which are available to buy. There’s also a terrific selection for those of you want to rent. The website includes plenty of information for landlords or anyone interested in offering property for rent.
