CENTURY 21 UK, the estate and letting agency franchisor and part of the world’s largest residential estate agency organisation, has today opened its latest office in Salford.

The Salford office is run by Roger Claughton, who also owns CENTURY 21 Halifax, and offers a variety of property services including sales, lettings, property management and commercial property sales.

CENTURY 21 Salford offers all clients the unique opportunity to work and deal with one person at the office for all their property affairs and for each aspect of their transaction.

Roger Claughton, owner of CENTURY 21 Salford, and CENTURY 21 Halifax since August 2009, commented:

“This is truly an exciting time for both myself personally and my team as we open the doors of CENTURY 21 Salford. The support that CENTURY 21 UK provides its offices is truly outstanding; if I were on my own, marketing and managing my business would be very difficult. CENTURY 21 UK’s support network connects me with the high quality marketing and training I need to grow. It’s already worked for us in Halifax and I’m confident our Salford branch will be as, if not more, successful.

“We have experienced firsthand what CENTURY 21 UK’s connection with the Shepherd Direct Group can mean for entrepreneurs looking to grow their businesses. Shepherd Direct have connected us to an industry-leading private rental sector project which will begin to introduce close to 1,000 new-build properties for rent in the North West of England early 2015.

“CENTURY 21 Salford will be responsible for finding tenants for just over 400 of these properties; a great way to kick start our business and build awareness in the local area. Our connection to the world’s largest property franchise, CENTURY 21, and backing by a fully integrated property services group, Shepherd Direct, gives us the clout to shoot for the more competitive deals in this marketplace.”

Rob Clifford, Chief Executive of CENTURY 21 UK and Group Commercial Director of Shepherd Direct Group, said:

“On behalf of CENTURY 21 UK, I can say that we are delighted to see Roger opening in a second territory. His first CENTURY 21 office, CENTURY 21 Halifax, has seen huge success, winning the CENTURY 21 Centurion award two years consecutively, and is on track for a third, as they continue to attract new clients and grow their portfolio.

“We were thrilled to be able to help Roger establish his new business by introducing him to over 400 rental properties within his first six months. This is the first of many similar projects we aim to be part of over the coming months and see it as a huge accolade to help us sell new franchised locations.

“CENTURY 21 UK offices continue to be opened all over the country, in fact this is one of five in the space of just one month, with CENTURY 21 Islington opening this week. Clearly, our expansion plans are only just beginning and there will be further new offices opening before the year is out.”
