Staff at the Kirkby office of long-standing estate agents and surveyors, David Blount, took time out from their busy schedule to celebrate a milestone birthday.

For it is 20 years since the opening of the office on Station Street, which is now the company’s headquarters for its survey, lettings and commercial departments.

Director David Blount joined staff for a social get-together after work with customers and supporters, who all reflected on how the housing market has changed since the doors to the office were first opened back in 1995.

David Blount has two other offices in the area -- at Forest Street, Sutton and at Albert Street, Mansfield. The independent company, which boasts more than 35 years of experience and in-depth knowledge, specialises not only in residential sales but also in residential and commercial lettings, surveys and valuations, commercial and property management and even holiday homes abroad.
