The company sold 224 homes in October and 186 in November, compared to 117 in October 2005 and 65 in November 2005 - a 91 per cent increase in October and a 186 per cent increase in November.

Senior partner Kevin Scrupps said the firm’s success came as Lincolnshire’s tourism and economy is growing, strengthening the property market and enticing buyers from within the county and beyond to invest in Lincolnshire property.

He said the hike in sales has been seen across the firm’s 11 county offices.

He added: “It is a great testament to the staff at Pygott & Crone and the business as a whole to report these fantastic record figures after a very difficult period in the housing market and the economy.

“As a business we continue to invest heavily in staff training and technology and we are now reaping the benefits of this investment which is illustrated in these figures.”

In addition to the increased sales figures, a survey has shown Pygott & Crone’s customer satisfaction rating now stands at 96 per cent.

Mr Scrupps said: “We are lucky enough to have a very loyal customer base and welcome new clients on a daily basis across our sites.

“The firm’s success is very much down to our customers and our excellent customer service.

He added: “Our new customer call centre has recently opened offering after-sales care to customers across the East Midlands, and I think this is having a real impact on client satisfaction and therefore repeat custom.”
