24 years in Hook

January 19, 2021

This year, we’re celebrating 24 years in Hook, having opened our village centre branch in 1997.

Today’s team of Simon Dredge and Kieran Egan are locals themselves, but it was our (now) Managing Director, Stephen Tetlow, who assisted the first sale from our Hook branch.

“Worryingly, I can remember it like it was yesterday. Strange to think it’s been 24 years, but I can still recall the couple’s name, their reason for moving, and that they were avid Manchester United supporters!"

Whilst Mackenzie Smith dates back to 1992, our Hook branch is now celebrating almost a quarter of a century of helping locals achieve their moving goals. Seeing the village and families grow.

“Hook has always been such a perfect fit for us as a company, our customer focus and attitude is perfect for the village which demonstrates a real community spirit.

Our current team is well-known locally, it seems every time I’m there (when covid isn’t restricting) someone pops by for a catch-up, whether they’ve added a conservatory and want some advice, or have simply got 5 minutes before they need to head to the station or school gates.

This sense of community and personality is absolutely why we’ve seen 24 years of success in the village, we’ve seen a great number of returning customers which our Trustpilot reviews are evidence of. Our sales team knows what it means to buy locally, and most importantly, they care." Ed Mackenzie Smith, Chairman.


If you’re considering putting your home on the market or would like an informal chat about the local property market amidst lockdown, feel free to give Simon and Kieran a call on (01256) 764666, hook@mackenziesmith.co.uk.
