Two long-established names in Warwick estate agency join forces as ehB buys Donald Carter

Mon 21 Nov 2022

A pair of long-established independent Warwick estate agencies have joined forces to create two new property hubs in the town centre, with ehB buying Donald Carter after more than half a century in the town.

ehB Warwick Ltd has completed the purchase of the agency from its founder’s son, Simon Carter, who is retiring after many years in the profession.

The purchase means ehB now has twice as many rental properties on its books and has seen a boost in the number of homes available for sale across the town and in the surrounding villages.

ehB will retain the Donald Carter offices, which are conveniently and coincidentally next door to its own premises, ensuring a seamless transition for the public.  Each will have its own identity, with Donald Carter’s former premises rebranded as ehB Warwick lettings hub, while the existing ehB office will become ehB Warwick sales hub.

Both will be run by ehB Warwick director Mark Wade, who has been with ehB for 12 years and has nearly 30 years’ experience in estate agency.

Both businesses were founded by the fathers of the current or recent directors – with ehB, under its earlier incarnation of Peter Bromwich, created by the eponymous father of current MD Edward Bromwich back in 1975, while retiring Simon Carter’s father Donald set up his business in 1965.

Edward Bromwich said; “Both businesses not only have similar backgrounds by being privately owned family firms, but also similar ethics and a determination to remain independent. The new, bigger operation will continue to combine traditional values with a modern outlook – with all the latest technology available to help streamline the sales and lettings process. We straddle the best of both worlds – the gravitas, experience and longevity of our team with a refreshing up to date approach.”

Mark Wade added: “We’re very excited about this expansion and the fact that we will have even more choice to offer our customers. To make life easier and clearer for our buyers and renters, one office will specialise in rentals and property management and the other one sales.”

 • ehB Warwick director Mark Wade and managing director Edward Bromwich celebrate their purchase of fellow long-established independent estate agency Donald Carter.  

"It has truly been a pleasure dealing with your colleagues who assisted in our purchase of 23 Beverley Road and the sale of 39 Brookhurst Road. This customer experience (including when we purchased 39 Brookhurst Court last year) has undoubtedly given us the confidence to approach eHB for our future real estate needs. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Clive, Juliana, Chris and Louise. They were polite and courteous and we were very pleased with the level of professionalism and strong work ethic that they demonstrated at all times. In our experience, we found eHB working to a very high standard of customer care and this, we believe, is the key differentiator that must be maintained by successful companies in a competitive market. Clive, Juliana and Chris invested time in learning about our particular needs and they impressed us with their strong dedication to customer service. Their relaxed and informative style gave us the confidence that our sale and purchases were in safe hands from the outset and, of course, we are totally happy with the outcomes. In particular, they were diligent and meticulous in their approach and we found this to be very reassuring indeed. Your colleagues did an excellent job. We would be grateful if you could convey our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Clive, Juliana, Chris and Louise. Well done! Kind regards Mushy & Laraine "
