It’s a new dawn for two Seans

Readings, the long established independent firm of Estate Agents and Chartered Surveyors have further bolstered their long-term expansion plans by appointing two Seans to new roles.

Sean Rushton has been appointed Associate Director with particular responsibility for the Estate Agency side of the business reporting to James Court who oversees Readings Sales and Auction departments.

Sean Sexton has joined the Survey & Professional department to assist with the existing workload and provide room for further growth.

Readings Managing Director Peter Woodthorpe comments:

“Sean Rushton has worked for me for thirteen years and is one of the most knowledgeable and respected estate agency valuers in the city. I would like to say I taught him all he knows, but the truth is, he now knows a lot more about selling houses in Leicester than I do. We constantly receive great feedback from clients about Sean’s professional, but the friendly approach and his efforts to always put his clients’ interests first. His step up to Associate Director is a natural progression for him and is part of our long-term succession planning to remain independent whilst constantly growing and improving our services.”

Sean Sexton joins the Company with a wealth of experience as a Surveyor. Peter says “We were really happy to welcome Sean to the Readings team in January. He’s joined our increasingly busy professional department and has a great set of skills which are really going to enhance the range of services we can offer. He’s got bags of experience valuing all sorts of residential property. Demand for our surveying services had reached the point we could not grow any further. Another surveyor means we can continue to support both other professionals and the public dealing with both residential and commercial property.”

So far the signs for the property market in Leicester for this year are extremely positive. Demand from both tenants and buyers was surprisingly strong towards the end of last year and that trend has continued into 2016. What we actually need is more properties to let and for sale to cope with that demand.
