Upmarket agencies combine

Savills buys rural-focused Smiths Gore

Smiths GoreTwo of Scotland’s top of the market property agents are combining their operations after Savills said it is buying the mainly rural-focused Smiths Gore.

All 532 Smith Gore staff in offices from Dumfries and Edinburgh to Fochabers and Perth will transfer into Savills rural energy and projects division or its country residential agency business.

Savills, which has a substantial private and charitable client client list, said the acquisition of the 168-year-old business complements its own rural operations.

Mark Ridley, chief executive of Savills UK and Europe, said: “This acquisition is in line with our strategy to improve the strength and depth of skills and expertise in our rural business, as well as expanding our geographical reach to provide a truly national service.”
