New estate agency launched

Joanne Bury, a legal expert, has teamed up with Aimee Gannon, a property specialist, to launch Fardella & Bell estate agency.

The company will primarily operate in Burnley, Blackburn and the Ribble Valley, and use the pair's combined experience to offer a streamlined service bridging estate agency and legal services.

Joanne said: “From my work as a solicitor and Aimee’s long time in the property sector, we both have previous experiences where the conveyancing process can have problems, especially when there’s a disconnect between the estate agent and the solicitor.

"This can lead to long delays and huge levels of stress for both buyers and sellers, and that’s why we launched Fardella & Bell to make use of our ability to combine the understanding of the estate agency world and the legal conveyancing process too."

Joanne added: "Launching in the Covid era has meant we’ve so far been unable to get as face-to-face with clients as we’d like in a normal environment. But we’ve been able use various means to tackle things head on while keeping within guidelines and we’ve already been really busy since we launched.

“What’s really important to us is that we’re a caring service. Although we’re from a deeply professional background, we’re also two working mums with family values, helping people on their way to their forever home."
