New development, Riverside Park, launches Miles & Barr into the bustling Ashford market

Miles & Barr launched its Ashford office today, 2 July 2022, with a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Mayor of Ashford. The opening of Miles & Barr Ashford places the multi-award-winning, independent estate agency at the heart of the town’s growing housing market.

The company reinforced its credentials as the South East’s leading estate agency by securing a partnership with one of Ashford’s newest developments, Riverside Park. Selling one and two-bedroom apartments (starting from £195,000) and stunning three-bedroom townhouses (priced at £540,000), the high-quality properties with luxury interiors were recently released. A stone’s throw from Ashford’s high-speed rail links, the development’s apartments and townhouses offer contemporary open plan living with balconies overlooking the Great Stour River and nearby Victoria Park.

“We pride ourselves on being involved in our local communities and so to have the support from the Mayor of Ashford, Councillor Jenny Webb, to mark our opening was truly special. The move to Ashford marks the start of Miles & Barr’s expansion plans to new towns outside of our existing geographical area. The launch of Miles & Barr Ashford is also our third opening this year, following the relocation of our Herne Bay High Street office in May and the opening of our new head office at The Links, Herne Bay Business Park, in January,” commented Mark Brooks, CEO of Miles & Bar.

Joe Bull, Senior Branch Manager of Miles & Barr Ashford commented, “Ashford is an exciting property market, and we are looking forward to assisting its residents with sales, lettings, commercial and financial services needs. To celebrate our launch, we have introduced the company’s first-ever 0% sales and lettings listing promotion which means it is currently FREE to sell or let your property. Available for a limited time and to Ashford residents only, all we ask is that one of our newly redesigned boards is placed outside of your property.”

The 13th Sales and Lettings office for East Kent’s leading estate agency has a prime position on Ashford’s pedestrianised, busy high street. The corner location allows plenty of sunlight to stream through the office’s neutral modern space with accents of Miles & Barr’s vibrant colours and recently introduced outside, inside design concept.

In 2021 Miles & Barr became a multi-award-winning estate agency, receiving two national customer service awards and a coveted ‘National Employer of the Year’ within its industry. The business also retained, for the fourth consecutive year, Relocation Agent Network’s ‘Best Estate Agency of the Year South East’ title. Like its sister offices, Miles & Barr Ashford holds the relocation contract as well, meaning that homeowners who sell and landlords who let their property through the estate agency will also have their property shown to buyers looking to relocate to the area.
