In 1989, Spicerhaart was founded by Paul Smith and his father Alick Smith when they opened three branches of Spicer McColl in East Anglia.
Throughout the years, we’ve grown substantially due to both organic growth and various acquisitions. Today we have five estate agency brands along with offering an extensive range of property services.
