North East agent adds new acquisition

Pattinson Estate Agency has announced its second acquisition in as many months.

The North East brand has acquired Browns Estate Agents. 

The news comes just two months after their takeover of Ryedales Estate Agency in Cramlington at the end of last year.


The owners of Stockton and Norton-based Browns Estate Agency, Chris and Trish Brown are retiring, but most staff will be remaining. 

Some employees have transferred to the Pattinson Estate Agency Stockton branch and others have stayed at the Norton branch which has become Pattinson Estate Agency’s 27th  office in the North East. 

Simon Brown will continue in the business with his survey and professional work, and all auction business will be transferred to Pattinson’s national award-winning auction facility, Pattinson Auction.

Caroline Pattinson, managing director of Pattinson Estate Agency, said: “Whilst we are sad to see the end of an era with Chris and Trish’s retirement, we are more than happy to ensure that this is a smooth transition for their clients. 

“Everything is largely remaining the same for Browns’ clients, except for a name change to Pattinson Estate Agency. For us as a business the Browns sales and lettings team joining us is a perfect fit. 

“Having got to know the team we are confident that they have a very similar client focused approach to selling, renting and managing properties as we do. We have been a family run independent estate agency for nearly 50 years, in that time we have seen a great deal of change but one thing which never has is our focus on customers and trying to ensure that we offer the best customer service. We wish Chris and Trish all the best in their next chapter.”
