FirstPort has today announced the acquisition of Barratt Residential Asset Management (BRAM), Barratt London’s property management company.

FirstPort Chief Executive Nigel Howell said:
“We are delighted to be welcoming Barratt London’s 11,000 customers whose homes are cared for by BRAM, as well as BRAM’s 200 employees to FirstPort. As a full service, specialist residential property manager with over four decades of experience, FirstPort has the skills and expertise to support customers across the range of Barratt London homes that BRAM manages. We look forward to continuing and building upon BRAM’s work in delivering great service to customers in their homes and their home environment.”

Gary Ennis, Regional Managing Director Barratt London and Southern said:
"Over the last seven years, through the efforts of our excellent team, BRAM has grown to become a successful property management company across London and we are very proud of the work and progress made. We were determined to ensure that any acquiring party must have a strong reputation and track record, and must share our customer focus. We are therefore delighted that BRAM has been acquired by FirstPort and we are confident in their commitment to continue to provide excellent service to our customers.”

FirstPort and BRAM have written to all customers, clients and suppliers to make them aware of this transaction, and will now be working closely together to ensure a robust and detailed transition plan is in place to aid as smooth a handover as possible for both companies’ employees, customers and suppliers.
