Acquiring David Martin Group Colchester

Published: 08/03/2023

Acquisition of DMG  

We are excited to announce our recent acquisition of David Martin Group (DMG), Colchester as of March 2023! The lettings side of our business has gone from strength to strength over the years, and this fantastic opportunity is the third acquisition in recent years and will expand our portfolio even further.  
In life we all make changes and at times identify certain situations which will help us grow and get stronger, which we recognise not only benefits ourselves but our clients too. We run a finely tuned practice here and are looking forward to widening our client group.

Staff Merger  

The fantastic DMG Lettings team (seen in photo together with John Palmer, Managing Director, Jon Gallop and Paul Devereux, Partners) have migrated over with the move ensuring continuity of support – Regan Smith and Danielle Mallison, although Danielle has worked for DMG for 12 years she started her career with us at Palmer & Partners, so she has now gone full circle!

Palmer & Partners  

Palmer & Partners was established in 2004, and almost 20 years later we are extremely proud of our company. We initially worked from our Colchester office, and as we grew so did our team and our offices. Our Ipswich office opened in 2007 followed shortly by Clacton.
Each of our offices are well located, extremely welcoming and friendly. With the latest technology combined with the experience our staff has to offer, we ensure the process of selling or letting your property is a smooth and stress free as possible.
Palmers & Partners are also delighted to have office coverage in West Colchester with the acquisition, working alongside their ‘flagship’ office in the heart of the city of Colchester.

Our Team  

With a combined wealth of expertise, we have extensive knowledge not only about property lettings, sales, and negotiations, but also about the surrounding local area, too. The team’s superb attention to detail approach combined with their next level customer service will leave you with peace of mind when selling, letting, or buying your property.
We like to think it’s our extensive local knowledge, additional attention to detail and enthusiasm that sets us apart from other local estate agents. You can trust us to look after the management of your lettings and/or support you with self-managed services.


DMG is a trusted and well-established local brand and Palmer & Partners assure existing clients they will continue to receive the same high-quality services as before. Moving forward they will operate under the name of Palmer & Partners, while maintaining the core values and expertise that DMG has brought to the industry for the past 27 years.
The recent deal ran very smoothly, and all the team are excited to merge systems, procedures, and their expertise between the offices. It was a pleasure dealing with John Beton, the owner, who ran the business very successfully over the last 17 years.

Our clients  

We want to thank our current clients for their working partnership, and to all our future clients – we are excited to work with you and take our services to the next level.
