The move has been made in tandem with FSS’s evolving business model which has seen the company grow its market share in residential sales alongside its other areas of expertise in residential lettings, commercial property, chartered surveying and auctions.
FSS now in its 22nd year remains one of the few local property businesses to offer property services and expertise across all the key disciplines.
Simon Croft, partner at FSS, said:
This is an exciting step for us and we believe it will position the business well moving forward. The investment reflects our company ethos which continues to be the provision of comprehensive property services for our customers.
Creating a consistent, fresh and modern approach, the rebrand has been applied to all aspects of the business including FSS’s shop front on Raglan Street, the website, advertising campaigns, marketing materials and sale boards throughout the area.
Richard Smailes added:
Introducing a stronger identity will raise awareness within the market. The new website will ensure all our customers receive the same excellent customer service online, as they do from our committed team when they visit us at our offices.
