With the office market highly competitive, landlords are strongly advised to seek professional advice when it comes to making their property stand out. For the owner of Millers House, a three-storey modern office building in the centre of Market Harborough, a consultation with our Director, Jason Hercock resulted in a letting being secured within six weeks of going to market.

Butt & Oyster Ltd is a family-owned property and investment company that has owned Millers House since 2017. Group Managing Director, Paul Deane said: “I’ve lived in the area for 30 years and always believed the centre of town would be a fantastic place to work. We have a number of tenants in Millers House, including one of our own businesses, but the ground floor became available. After researching which agent was most active in the Harborough area, I contacted Jason. He was especially proactive in advising how best to let the space, including that it would be advantageous to subdivide into two offices.

“Jason’s knowledge of what would work for the market was spot on, and office A was let quickly to another local business. He continued to provide invaluable insight throughout the process so I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”

The new tenants at Millers House are bookkeeping and accountancy specialists, The Business Hut, who were looking for additional space and more of a customer-facing presence in the town.

“Our business began in 2014 in Market Harborough and we’re proud to be part of its thriving business community so knew we wanted to stay but were rapidly running out of room for our growing team,” explains Director, Charlotte Allen. “Millers House offered the perfect location. It's easy to find, central, and has private parking. The move means we now have dedicated space for more face-to-face client meetings, plus room for all the team when they’re office-based. It’s also accelerated our recruitment programme so we’re actively seeking Senior Accountants and Bookkeepers. As we head towards our 10th anniversary, the future looks very bright!”
