Leaders Romans Group Acquires Nottingham Estate Agency Liberty Gate

May 2, 2023 PR Officer

Leaders Romans Group (LRG) has acquired Liberty Gate, a Nottingham-based residential lettings and sales business which operates one branch in Nottingham city centre. 

The acquisition will further strengthen the Group’s existing presence to the north of the city and the wider East Midlands region, joining its already strong presence in New Homes and Shared Ownership under area manager, Jennifer Swinstead. The branch will be the first Leaders branch in the city centre and will be rebranded as ‘Leaders together with Liberty Gate’.

David Thomas, director at Liberty Gate, will continue in the business for a short transition period, ensuring a smooth transfer for Liberty Gate’s valued clients, whilst all other staff will transfer to LRG.

Matthew Light, Group mergers and acquisitions director at LRG, said: “We are extremely proud to complete the acquisition of Liberty Gate and look forward to welcoming the team to the LRG family. Following a number of acquisitions early this year, our focus is very much on growth, particularly in lettings. With this acquisition, we aim to further strengthen local knowledge through our high street branch network. Along with the support of a national business, our clients are given exceptional service. Liberty Gate is an award-winning business, with an excellent reputation and offers its clients a first-class service.”

David Thomas, founder of Liberty Gate, added: “Liberty Gate is very much focused on providing a world-class estate agency experience to help every client achieve their dream property. We inspire, guide, and support our clients, colleagues, and community through property. By merging with LRG, we know that level of service will be continued. I want to thank the team at Liberty Gate for their dedication and passion, which has enabled us to grow into a successful, award-winning business.

“LRG’s approach to estate agency and lettings is in perfect synergy with Liberty Gate’s, and I do not doubt that under the Leaders brand, this will only improve further the fantastic service the team provides. In addition, becoming part of the Leaders brand will give all of our homeowners and tenants access to the best online customer portals, research capabilities and a stake in the Group’s exceptional commitment to sustainability. 

“LRG’s team have been a pleasure to work with. From initial discussions through to the finalisation of the merger, the team at LRG have been understanding, professional and knowledgeable.”
