A Topsham charity has linked up with an estate agency in the town - a deal which will see money donated to the good cause
STAFF at a Topsham charity are in high spirits after a new estate agency has offered to donate 10 per cent of net commission it receives.
The Estuary League of Friends has linked up with East of Exe, a new agency based in the town.
Under the deal, 10 per cent of net commission paid to the company by any seller will go to the charity.
Rachel Gilpin, chief executive of the Estuary League of Friends, said: “We are helping a new business, based in our area and serving the same Topsham and East Devon community as ourselves.
“This is a win-win deal. In return we will get a share of the commission from successful sales, which will help us develop our services further.”
Rachel added: “Our clients look to us to advise on local businesses and we have an ‘approved list’ of everyone from craftsmen to gardeners. This is an extension of that service.
Ian Garcia, director of the East of Exe estate agency, was looking forward to the partnership.
He said: “This unique agreement allows us to visibly demonstrate to both our clients and the community why we are different.
“We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Estuary League of Friends.”
