Founded in 1996, Dewhurst Lettings is a highly regarded Swindon-based letting agent with the second-highest market share in the area, according to Rightmove. Following more than two decades of growth, founder and owner Mike Dewhurst now intends to focus solely on land and new homes. The lettings business will transition to become a new Romans branch over the coming weeks. The onboarding of Dewhurst Lettings’ existing employees will see the LRG group’s headcount increase yet further, building upon four separate acquisitions that were completed earlier this year.
