Arun Estates

When Paul Rooney bought a chain of 100 estate agencies from Prudential Property Services in 1991 he says that one of his best decisions was to restore the firms’ original names, including Ward & Partners in Kent. Clients responded to Rooney’s local approach and profits have grown 83% a year from £1.8m in 2001 to £11.2m in 2004 as the company, with branches across London and southeast England, has added financial services and chartered surveying to its offering.
