Successful family run Eastbourne business Sanders Property Management has announced the sale of the business to Hobdens Property Management.

Following over 17 hugely successful years growing SPM, Peter and Lisa Sanders decided it was time to finally sell the business and move on to fresh challenges.

The business has been sold to Hobdens Property Management Ltd, a specialist Property Management company based in Littlehampton and part of the Trinity Property Group. Hobdens will be retaining SPM’s staff and adding an Eastbourne-based property manager to ensure that all of Sanders’ properties will continue to receive the same excellent service.

Peter summed up their decision: “Lisa and I have thoroughly enjoyed building Sanders Property Management since we started in 2005 and have worked with some fantastic clients, contractors and suppliers over that time. We’ve grown from one small block to now being the largest independent Block Management company in the area. We’ve grown through recessions, pandemics and economic challenges, but now all good things must come to an end and we look forward to taking some time to relax before moving on to future ventures.”

Managing Director of Hobdens Property Management, Darren Dalton said, “We are delighted to have acquired such a strong business with a loyal customer base and high standards. Rest assured, we will continue to deliver the type of customer service that Sanders’ customers have come to expect, backed by our 30-strong staff and infrastructure.”

Peter and Lisa wish to thank everyone who they have worked with over the last 17 years and look forward to the next chapter. To find out more, please visit
