Acquisition of Aston Mead by Leaders Ltd
HMT LLP undertook financial due diligence for independent residential property group Leaders Limited on their acquisition of Home Counties estate agents Aston Mead Ltd.
Since starting as a single branch in Brighton over 30 years ago, Leaders have grown by delivering an excellent local property service and by acquiring reputable businesses to bring their service to new towns and cities across the UK. The recent acquisition of Aston Mead brings it additional branches in two new areas, taking it past the 100 branch milestone.
Leaders’ buy and build strategy has led to its expansion through the acquisition of a range of businesses with branches in areas where it had no previous presence, as well as the acquisition of property portfolios to strengthen its established branches.
Based in Epsom, Walton-on-Thames, Weybridge and Woking, Aston Mead is an award-winning estate agent with a strong local reputation. Leaders will be merging the business with its existing branches.
