Lincoln estate agents merge in competition buyout

The majority of staff from both companies will now work in one office

Two Lincoln estate agents have merged into one, as Mount & Minster has bought out long-established Colonia.

Both companies will now merge their staff into a larger team at Mount & Minster’s offices on Eastgate, close to the cathedral.

The majority of staff from Colonia have stayed on and are said to be pleased to be working under the Mount & Minster brand.

Kelly and Steve Tasker set up Colonia back in 2005 and have established it as a place for “friendly and warm service.”

James Ward, partner and head of Mount & Minster’s Lincoln office said: “We are very excited about this next chapter for the firm and look forward to providing the same high-quality professional service for clients.”

Ralph Wyrley-Birch, a managing partner at Mount & Minster, added: “This has come at an excellent time as we continue to develop and become one of the largest and fastest-growing real estate companies in the East Midlands.”

Mount & Minster started trading in 2015 and offer residential, agricultural and general surveying services across the East Midlands.
