Celebrating 30 years of Bradley Hall
In 1988, Bradley Hall began as a team of two surveyors in its original Sandyford office. Since then, the team has grown to include 42 carefully selected experts with six offices across the region including; Alnwick, Morpeth, Gosforth, Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham.
The group managing director, Neil Hart, began at the firm in 2000 and has since driven the company forward to become one of the most well-known and reputable firms in the North East. Peter Bartley, group director for the firm, joined in 1991 and went on to open the company’s second operation in Durham in 1996.
Neil was responsible for the company’s expansion – opening the first Gosforth office in 2005, followed by its main commercial operation launch on Grey Street in 2011. The rapid escalation of the firm’s commercial operation meant the team quickly outgrew the Grey Street site, and the expanding team was moved to a more central location on Hood Street in 2016.
In recent years especially, the firm has grown at a rapid pace thanks to its successful growth strategy implemented by directors Neil, Peter, Richard Rafique and Geoff Davis. In the past three years alone, the turnover has increased by an impressive 87%, and new offices in Alnwick, Morpeth and Sunderland have been launched.
From one shared commercial and residential office to a now ‘field to finish’ full service agency, the firm has welcomed several departments which ensure that all of client’s property related needs are met, including; commercial agency, land, development and new homes, valuation and professional services, property management, building surveying, residential agency, mortgages, planning and design and asset finance.
Several exciting appointments are set to be made, with official celebratory events planned to mark key senior members joining the firm. It’s recently appointed advisory board will be headed by John Marshall, who is also chair of Newcastle Gateshead Initiative, a non-executive director and council member of North East England Chamber of Commerce, and a council member of CBI North East.
Recent success is also encouraging expansion across the entire company and newly implemented departments including building surveying and planning and design are both already looking for talented new team members to join the firm.
Bradley Hall also marked its 30th year by completing a 30km walk for its chosen charity partner of the year, Daft As A Brush Cancer Patient Care. Over a dozen members of the team completed the trek around Northumberland and Newcastle to raise vital funds for the charity.
