Littlehampton estate agency marks 50-year anniversary
A familiar name in Littlehampton and the surrounding areas, Graham Butt Estate Agents is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
The business opened its first branch in High Street, Littlehampton, in 1971, and now has offices in Rustington, Angmering and East Preston, too.
Namesake and business founder Graham Butt is still involved in the business, but is also assisted by two generations of his family – son, David, and grandson, James.
Graham said: “It is difficult for me to believe that it is 50 years this year that I opened my very first office in Littlehampton, where we are still trading from today.
“We are still, as then, very much a family business, with a history in estate agenncy going back to the 1940s, when my father Brian Butt and his brother opened thier first office in Hove.”
The business now has offices in Rustingon, Angmering, and East Preston, too.
Graham said over the years he had seen many changes in the property market, and described his 50-year career as both challenging and rewarding.
He added: “From where my father Brian started to where my gandson James is today, our family has over 80 years of estate agency history, of which I am very proud.”
