Investing in local

Introducing Corum’s new Ayr office

Twenty years ago, Corum entered the Scottish property market, and over the following two decades, they have become synonymous as the leading premium estate agent across Ayrshire, Greater Glasgow and the Central belt. In the past year, across their nine offices, they helped some 2,000 clients move home, generating £600M+ in property sales.

Arguably, the strongest performing region for Corum has been within the Ayrshire market, and the three offices, Ayr, Troon and Largs, situated in key locations along the Ayrshire coast have helped the business become the de facto go-to for customers looking to sell their home.

2022 was a record year for the business, and the Managing Director of Corum Ayrshire, Bruce Patterson, has been determined to reinvest in the local community. January witnessed the launch of a brand new office in the heart of Ayr’s town centre – a stunning new space perfectly located with digital technology, an open-plan layout, contemporary styling and space for staff and clients to liaise in a relaxed professional manner.

Bruce tells us: “The new office showcases our commitment to be the best. We are passionate about the service we offer and having a space that visually represents our brand is really important to us.” From striking interiors to state-of-the-art window digital displays, the new office strikes the perfect balance of modern technology and traditional estate agency.

In order to bring the office to life, Corum sought the expertise of renowned local interior designer Sam Hay. Sam, who had previously designed the Corum offices some 13 years ago, brought together a cacophony of ideas and curated them into the beautiful new space. She said: “My inspiration for the new office was to create a beautiful and functional space promoting a relaxed and inviting environment for both customers and the Corum team.”

Corum often extoll their enthusiasm for being a local estate agency, where the staff live and socialise within their community. This ethos was perfectly demonstrated by the company choosing to use as many local suppliers and professionals as possible, from the interior design to the electrics, shop fitting and plumbing. If a local trade could be used, they were.

With the new office now in full swing and the local property market moving at an excellent pace, there is great optimism for what the immediate and long-term future holds for Corum. As for what is next, a revamp of the Troon office is underway, with Sam Hay once again leading the charge.
