Growing Hartlepool property business sets its sights on expansion with offices in London and Spain
An ambitious Hartlepool-based business is looking to expand by opening new offices in London and the Costa del Sol.
Software development and digital marketing company Property Webmasters, located in Church Square, plans to increase its international exposure.
It follows a rise in demand of its services specialising in generating leads for estate agents globally.
CEO Jamie Arthur, 40, said: “We want to expand our presence overseas. People have now understood the importance of getting digital and we want to lead the way with our growing team of staff.
“In order to keep the momentum going we are looking at having new offices in the UK and beyond.
“Among the wide-range of clients we have internationally are those in the Costa del Sol and in London.
“A lot of our competitors outsource what we offer. If we went to London, for example, we know we would be an ideal all-in-one marketing solution for clients.
“I have made a few enquiries in the Costa del Sol. I want to do something quite bold to grow the business as soon as possible.
"Within the next six months we will have an office presence overseas.”

Property Webmasters has made enormous progress since Mr Arthur set up on his own four years ago.
The company now proudly owns its own headquarters and boasts of being trusted by numerous global real estate firms such as Chestertons, Coldwell Banker, Sotheby’s and Century21.
Staff includes digital marketers, software engineers and designers.
Luke Fleming, Digital Marketing Manager, said: “We want to connect to our existing clients on a personal level much more, as well as looking to continue to grow the business and expand our international presence, these moves will enable us to do that.
“Due to our popularity and international partners we have attracted business from around the world.”
Mr Arthur, a former student at Hartlepool’s High Tunstall College of Science, added: “I do feel proud of what we have achieved.
"We are a small business by all accounts, but the fact we can attract clients from across the globe is testament to the hard work we do.”
