Around 2011, whilst renovating and letting a student HMO together, old friends and proud Bristolians Adam Kershaw and Maxwell Hope made a plan, Max would continue his work as a property developer and Adam would find work with a local Estate Agency and learn the ropes with the aim of rejoining and opening their own Property Management business. Two years later and the time was right.
With Max’s experience in property development and Adam’s new found experience in Lettings and Property Management, Hopewell was formed in 2013.
With very humble beginnings Hopewell started life managing the directors personal portfolio of students properties as well as properties for friends and family. Fast forward to 2020 and Hopewell now have a Sales department working out of the Clifton Village office and manage over 220 properties from our lettings HQ on Prince Street.
