One of the oldest businesses in Porthcawl has been re - launched as part of a strategy to move it forward successfully into the 21st century.

Estate Agent T. Elwood Deere and Son founded in 1911 by the grandfather of owners David and Rosemary Deere and re branded as Elwood Deere as a limited company.

Managing Director Craig Baldwin brings 28 years experience in the business to a century old firm which has its office in John Street, Porthcawl.

While the main emphasis of the business continues to be sell low to mid range value properties within Porthcawl and surrounding communities as it has been doing for decades, there has also been a deliberate policy change to take the firm upmarket.

Craig explained: there are a few Estate Agencies that cater for the 1 million plus market in South Wales and we want to join that select band.
