Crofton Park - An Evil Cradling

This is a city of the muses. For poets, painters and composers. This is the artists' enclave. This is Venice and Florence waiting to be explored, and I dream it still.
- Brian Keenan, Between Extremes 

Bryan & Keegan, an estate agent so new that its website isn't live yet, is coming to Crofton Park. Jonathan sent us this photo of their shiny new shop front.

BC understands that Estate Agents aren't universally welcomed to Brockley's high streets, but it's another unit filled, another business employing people locally and another sign that the local economy is buoyant. Its neighbours include a bakery and a ballroom, so homogeneity isn't a problem on this stretch.

UPDATE: Founder Jon Keegan explains:

We have taken over the site of Bells of Westminster Builders, which many of you know was run by Kevin Bryan. Bells have moved to the back of our office so the estate agency will also incorporate the building services. I appreciate not everyone will be thrilled by another estate agency but for my sins this industry is my passion! We hope to try and break down some of the barriers which can often exist between clients. We would welcome anyone to pop in and see us for a tea or a coffee. As well as raising our own profile i would be keen to hear of any community projects that we might be able to help/get involved in.

Groan. Yes, estate agents givr a vital service which many have to use at some time or another and yes an occupied unit is better than an empty one, but still... Aren't the 8 estate agents we've got already enough?

Still, at least it's not Foxtons.

And at least the shop unit is attractive. Could be a lot worse. Saxton have also redecorated, and looks a lot better as well (presumably they knew this was coming and upped their game). This stretch is improving pretty rapidly at the moment.

Funny, it was never an empty shop as it was The Bells of Westminster. There are still a number of vacant shops in this area, lets hope they get used!

The refurb was a bit odd - there was a sign up throughout saying 'Minor refurbishments, business as usual' or something and then all of a sudden it's a new business.

Woohoo, another estate agent. You love it really. BTW, anyone know anything about the Biomechanic Foot Foundation (not sure if that is the exact name)?

There was a bloke named Jon Keegan working at Rocodells who sold our flat... Wonder if this is the same Keegan. If so our estate agents must be feeling positive about the local market.

You are correct sir, it is indeed me. We hope to be fully open in the next few days, feel free to pop in for tea or coffee and say hello!

Congratulations Jon, you must be very excited starting up on your own! You helped us sell our pad on UBR a few years back :0) If you need any assistance with marketing, such as branding, flyers, brochures, website then give me a bell. My details are here: http://www.picksarah.co.uk/

Wishing you the best of luck! Sarah

Hi Sarah, I hope you are well. I remember the flat, it was a nice 1 bed with a garden. Yes very exciting : ) I might well be in touch to see how you could help with some things.
