“The latest figures for the for the first five months of 2017 demonstrate how we remain one of the best when it comes to selling homes in Mid Wales,” said Andrew Turner, a Partner at MMP.

“We believe this is down to having a good, local and knowledgeable team that deals directly and personally with clients, markets each property understanding the potential market for it, and has a good mix of marketing channels, from online through to local high street offices within the communities.

“Online only estate agents cannot provide that in-depth support and that’s why people keep coming to us when they want to sell or buy a home. They want to deal with and speak to someone who knows the local market and can be contacted throughout the whole process for help and advice.”

MMP continues to grow with the opening of a new office at Rhayader. It now has 9 offices throughout Powys, Ceredigion, Gwynedd and Shropshire.
