Leicestershire estate agency celebrates 30th anniversary with staff tea party

A leading Leicestershire independent estate agency celebrating 30 years in business marked the occasion by treating its staff to an anniversary tea party. 

The directors at Andrew Granger & Co invited all the agency’s staff to an afternoon held in the rural setting of The Orangery at Kilworth House Hotel in North Kilworth, Leicestershire. The event was held to thank staff for the key role they have played in the company’s three decades of success in business.

Over 60 staff and partners attended the afternoon tea, including Andrew Granger himself who set up the company back in 1989.

 “We wanted to thank all our staff who have shown exceptional loyalty over the years,” commented Andrew Granger & Co’s Joint Managing Director Mark Sandall. “It was a wonderful way for us all to celebrate our 30th anniversary together. The weather was kind so we were able to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea with colleagues in the stunning conservatory at Kilworth House, spilling out onto the patio to enjoy the afternoon sunshine and views.”

When it was first set up, Andrew Granger & Co employed just five staff at its original premises in Market Harborough. The agency is now one of the largest independent agencies in the East Midlands and employs over 40 staff at its Leicester, Loughborough and Market Harborough locations. Many of the staff have worked at the agency for over a decade, with some clocking up over 20 years of service.

“Without our dedicated staff we certainly wouldn’t have built up such a successful and reputable business across the county. So this event was a huge thank you to all our staff and also a way of celebrating this special occasion,” adds Mark Sandall. “And although we are celebrating 30 years in business, we are very much looking to the future, embracing the challenges of working in the property market in the digital age.”

Julie Jack, one of Andrew Granger & Co’s longest serving members of staff explained why she has enjoyed working at the company saying:


“I just love the variety of the work. There’s such a friendly atmosphere and I also enjoy the social activities that are organised. The company is very community minded - over the last few decades we have been involved in a lot of fundraising and sponsorship of local charities.”

The anniversary afternoon tea is just one of several events planned this year to celebrate 30 years of excellence at Andrew Granger & Co. The staff are very much looking forward to returning to Kilworth House Hotel on July 8th to celebrate with business partners and clients over drinks and canapés.

Andrew Granger & Co work with residential, commercial and rural properties across the Leicestershire and East Midlands area.
