The estate agents, in Ropes Drive, has closed its doors for good after the business decided to move operations away from the office, with staff instead now taking calls and working from their home desks.

The decision was made in September, with Kesgrave local Samantha Webb taking on the reins as the local branch manager.

Ms Webb, 31, said: “Moving out of the office has been a really positive step.

“None of my clients need me spending time at a desk, they want me out and about selling their homes. Now my phone is my office I can do just that.”

The national firm’s managing director, Antony Lark, said the move helps to create a better work-life balance and allows money to be better reinvested to support customers.

“It really is a win-win all round,” he added.

The future of the unit is yet to be revealed.
