A BURY property company have hit a home run after starring in a popular day time TV show.

Kristian Allan Sales, Lettings & Property Management appeared in this morning's episode of BBC One’s Homes Under The Hammer.

The episode follows the Walshaw-based firm as they renovate an end-terrace house in Fir Street, Ramsbottom.

Prior to their purchase of the property the house had been an eyesore after sitting derelict for around 15 years ­— presenting a unique challenge for business owner Kristian Allan and his team.

Bury Times:

Mr Allan said: “This house was actually found by my son around two or three years ago. He is only 16 but lives and breathes property.

“I met with the owner and he accepted my offer. But there were a lot of problems from his end and it went on and on.

“Eventually it went to auction and we ended up getting it for £80,000.

“When we were at the auction we were approached by Homes Under The Hammer to be on the show.”

After taking on the property Mr Allan and his team gave it a huge refurbishment and transformed it into a stylish four-bed family home.

Bury Times:

He said: “When we bought it, the back of the house was falling down and there was a tree growing out of it. You couldn’t live in it, it was a total wreck.

“So we have completely rebuilt it, put an extension on the side, given it a new roof and redecorated the whole house.”

Once on the market the house was quickly snapped up for close to £250,000 after just a handful of viewings.

Mr Allan added: “It was an interesting experience being on the show and it’s a lot different from what you expect TV to be like. For two minutes of fame there’s a lot that goes in to it.

“The build went really well and it was also about giving back as well.

“Because the house had been an eyesore the amount of neighbours we have had praising us for taking it on and bringing it back to life has been great. They are really chuffed it has been done.”

Bury Times:

Mr Allan started out in the property industry seven years ago beginning as a landlord after his sister had been "ripped off" by the people she rented from.

From initially just looking after her home, Mr Allan now manages around 350 properties and has eight staff offering services in sales and letting as well as property management and refurbishment.

The business was also recently recognised as one of the top three per cent of companies in the country by The Best Estate Agent Guide.
