Purple…the story so far

The habout3istory and roots of Purple Property Group began in 2006. Matthew Taylor saw a growing demand for a quality, trustworthy local Letting agent with hands-on experience of the Lettings market. After the success of Matthew’s nationwide portfolio, he found himself being approached to look after other people’s properties with the same care and service he used on his own. Matthew and wife Michelle set to building an agent for Landlords run by Landlords.




In 2008 this became reality in the opening of their office in Morecambe as Purple Property Management. Word spread of the quality and level of service offered by Purple and they soon became a big name in the Morecambe property market gaining recognition of The Property Ombudsman and following their code of conduct gave solid underpinnings for the company.


In 2012 Matthew received recognition by NFoPP (National Federation of Property Professionals) in the qualification of their Technical Award in Residential Lettings and Property Management.


At the ESTAs 2012 (Estate and Letting Agent Awards) the Purple Team cleaned up receiving the Gold award for ‘Best Agent in the North West’ and receiving a Silver Award for ‘Best Agent in the UK’. Presented by TV property expert Phil Spencer at a lavish luncheon & ceremony at the Hilton Park Lane London attended by 550 of the UK’s top estate and letting agents.


Purple now occupy an extended office on Thornton Road, Morecambe, which is a hub of activity under one roof.  Matthew has since been nominated as a ‘Rising Star’ in the UK lettings market and continues to keep Purple, a leader in the local lettings market, offering new technology combined with good old-fashioned customer service.


Following the success and recognition of the awards Purple Property Group continue to keep a steady growth in the property market, whilst becoming a recognised name in the Lettings Industry. Now covering Lancaster, Morecambe and the South Lakes and with over 600 properties on their books, the main principles of Purple have lasted and are still adopted by Matthew and the Purple team.
