We are delighted to announce that Curtis & Son Estate Agents have been incorporated into the broader Michael Jones and Company operation and will trade as ‘Michael Jones & Curtis’. As of 30th May 2019, the office will be led by Senior Branch Manager, Peter Hassell and former Curtis & Son Branch Manager, Barry Parker, will be staying in the newly merged business.
Curtis & Son, are a family owned, independent business who first opened their office in 1976 by Terry and Pat Curtis. They established an excellent reputation which continued to grow when their daughter, Jane Cockain, took over in 2000. Jane commented: “Now that I have decided to retire, I wanted to sell the business to a company that I know will continue our excellent legacy.”
Following refurbishment, our team based at the Michael Jones Findon office will be moving into the larger Curtis & Son Findon Valley office, and we are delighted that Barry Parker will be staying on with us. Mike Jones, Managing Director, says: “Barry is well respected within both the Findon community and broader business community, and is a great addition to our team.”
The acquisition comes off the back of the recent letting acquisition of Bacon & Co in 2017, which is presently integrated into the group as ‘Michael Jones & Bacon’.
“Our new acquisition joins together two great brands in the Findon Valley area, making our business exceptionally strong and our sales business and service offerings unrivalled for new and existing customers. Michael Jones will continue to deliver the same personalised and professional service that we have provided since 1991”, comments Mike Jones.
Barry Parker first joined Curtis & Son in 1985 and is a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents. Barry has been helping people sell and buy in the local area for over 30 years and has extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with all types of property.
“I am thrilled to be staying on with Michael Jones’ team. I genuinely enjoy what I do and am looking forward to continuing to help and support the families in Findon Village and Findon Valley, High Salvington and Offington. Having such a strong network behind us with the Michael Jones Group will give us greater opportunity to help our customers reach more potential buyers quickly and efficiently”, says Barry.
Regarding current Curtis & Son customers, Barry assures: “For those who currently have their homes on the market with Curtis & Son, we will maintain the great standards you have always received; we guarantee our Michael Jones & Curtis team will continue to offer you the same effective service, excellent local knowledge and all existing agreements will be honoured.”

The Michael Jones Group was started by Mike Jones 28 years ago on Monday, 13th May 1991. Coincidentally we opened our first office at the address of 13 Chatsworth Road in Worthing, West Sussex and went on to sell our very first property at 13 Canterbury Road – although some find bad luck with the number 13, we’re pleased to say it’s been a good omen for us so far.
