Andrew Regan & Amanda Hallworth opened Regan & Hallworth Estate Agents on Library Street, Wigan in 1996, just across the road from where Andrew had started his estate agency career in 1989. They had both previously worked together for the Abbey National building society, who back then had one of the UK’s largest chain of Estate Agents, ‘Cornerstone’ and had worked their way up the corporate ladder and been heavily involved with the new estate agency regulations that the corporate agent brought into the market.
They simply felt they could do a better job if they worked for themselves, and in September 1996 launched Regan & Hallworth. Within a year the company was trading profitably and within three years it had become the town's market leading agent. Today more people choose locally to sell with our firm than any other estate agent - a fact of which we are very proud.
Since then we have opened 2 more offices in Parbold & Standish - both quickly establishing themselves as market leaders in their respective area’s with a specialist brand that is instantly recognisable throughout the region. We are proud sponsors of the annual Wigan 10k and Wigan Run Festival as well as various local events in Parbold and Standish including the incredibly popular Parbold Street Festival.
In 2017 Joel Edgerton and Andrew Herterich who had both worked for the company for well over 10 years became Directors, replacing Andrew Regan who retired from estate agency altogether and despite the very challenging market conditions no thanks largely to Brexit we have just enjoyed one of our most successful years, surprisingly selling more houses across all 3 branches than the previous 5 years.
We employ a very loyal and dedicated team of property experts with many of them having been with our firm for a decade or more and whom pride themselves on providing a first class service. This team has continued to grow over the years and we now employ 25 local people with a combined experience of over 350 years making us one of the most experienced estate agents you will find anywhere. We are a firm with a ‘can do attitude’ and very much a results driven company who have always tried to innovate and be a market leader in terms of advertising, marketing, technology and photography.
We offer in-house mortgage advice with independent financial advisors based in each of the branches and of course we sell lots of homes with an excellent reputation for unique and exclusive homes within the Wigan, Chorley, St Helens & West Lancs areas through our “Properties of Distinction” branding which not only offers a bespoke tailored service but also utilises the very latest technology to elevate these unique properties above the competition and increase their exposure to buyers.
We have also recently successfully launched our very own lettings service employing a dedicated team of experts who are fully focused on the priorities and needs of Landlords and Tenants. Operating from all 3 branches their loyalties are not divided by dealing with property sales and all of our letting clients are managed personally for optimum performance whilst ensuring smooth running tenancies and compliance with the various landlord/tenant laws. In addition to this all our letting properties get the same levels of marketing and exposure as our sales properties meaning that our clients properties get a level and quality of advertising rarely matched in the rental market and this is proven to ensure that they get the best possible price in the quickest possible time-scale. Our lettings department is now the fastest growing part of our business and presents us with new and exciting challenges everyday.
Recently we expanded our services to include a quick sale service via a modern method of auction and traditional auction and we are specialists of selling new build homes and plots of land with an extensive register of local builders/investors and regional developers.
