KENT, 23 MAY 2022 – Miles & Barr, East Kent’s leading independent property group, continues to lead the way in creativity and flare for design with the rebrand of its Sales and Lettings boards. The new boards, launched this week, are more than just an eye-catching design, they highlight Miles & Barr’s focus on lowering the company’s carbon footprint by taking conscious steps in its sustainable journey.

The new boards also launched the company’s adapted crown logo, which was given a modern twist to reflect Miles & Barr’s continued determination to adapt and modernise. Manufactured from 100% recycled materials, plus wood from FSC certified woodlands, the board's vibrant design has the added feature of being reflective, so they stand out during the day and night. The board's innovative refresh was influenced by Kent’s striking sunrises and sunsets.

Mark Brooks, CEO of Miles & Barr commented “Our commitment to making our new boards eco-friendly was non-negotiable. The boards are just one way we can reduce our carbon footprint. It seemed fitting to jointly announce the board change with our logo refresh as we like to give our boards a new stand-out, conversational starting design update every few years. Our crown logo has become a familiar symbol to many, and we ensured we did not stray too far from the colourful crown that is widely recognised by our clients. The refreshed logo is a representation of our wish to continually stay with the times, modernise our brand and evolve as a business.”

In 2021, Miles & Barr received two customer service awards from ESTAS, a Bronze in The Negotiator’s Estate Agency of the Year (Large) category, plus the business retained for the fourth consecutive year, Relocation Agency Network’s Best Estate Agency of the Year South East title.

Founded in 1999, Miles & Barr has grown organically and through acquisitions to become a leader in Kent’s property market. The independent property group is a specialist in selling and buying homes, lettings, property management, relocations, financial services, commercial sales and lettings, as well as conveyancing. With operations across 12 sales and three letting branches, as well as a head office located in Herne Bay, Miles & Barr employs more than 260 members of staff from across the county.
