Managing director of Jacob Steel, Ashley Jacobs, said: “We are delighted with the progress that the Shoreham office has made over the last three years under the management of Matthew Balmer.

“It is now one of the leading offices in the area and the public can be assured of a high quality professional service whether buying or selling.”

Matthew Balmer said: “We have worked tirelessly to improve our services and help make Jacobs Steel the area’s leading selling agent. I am pleased to announce that we were the number one agent on Rightmove for new listings for 2014. I would like to thank every home owner that listed their property with us, all of which have contributed to our continued success and helped us to improve our professional services.

“We are dedicated to helping and supporting local schools and doing as much work in the community as possible. We were pleased to make a contribution to St Peter’s School and sponsor their new books, as well as buying a new football kit for ASC Strikers who play their home games at Buckingham Park. We also support Guild Care and Macmillan Cancer Support.”

The Shoreham office has seen many changes over the years, being one of the longest established agents, opening in April 1984. It is currently undergoing a makeover so watch this space for the new, eye-catching office near Shoreham station.

With exciting developments in Shoreham, as well as Brighton and Hove buyers seeing Shoreham as a cheaper alternative, the town continues to blossom and is a great place to buy an investment property or raise a family.

The strong, settled team has more than 30 years combined experience which is imperative when giving a complete service. So if you are buying, selling or looking to rent a property please do not hesitate to contact the professional team where you will receive attentive, award-winning and friendly service.
