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

CENTURY 21 Goodmayes 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 the transaction. It will also offer clients a range of ancillary services such as conveyancing, mortgage advice and surveys via CENTURY 21 UK’s parent company, the Shepherd Direct Group (SDL).

Arfan Akbar, Owner of CENTURY 21 UK Goodmayes, commented: “We are very pleased to have opened the doors of CENTURY 21 Goodmayes office. We were drawn to CENTURY 21 for many reasons – firstly, the fact it is a major international brand, secondly, those international links provide a range of property opportunities for clients, and also, the major investment and commitment from Shepherd Direct means that we are backed by a highly supportive and ambitious Group. We’re fully aware this is an incredibly competitive marketplace however we feel we have a number of unique selling points and we will be at the heart of this community.

“This local knowledge, coupled with the national and international support we receive from CENTURY 21 UK, will set us apart from those other agencies competing for business in our area. Our focus is all on the client and we know many people are disillusioned with their options in this marketplace – we assure all those looking for property services that by coming to CENTURY 21 Goodmayes they will receive the highest standards of service available, coupled with an honesty and professionalism they will be hard pressed to find elsewhere.”

Rob Clifford, Chief Executive of CENTURY 21 UK and Group Commercial Director of Shepherd Direct Group, said: “CENTURY 21 UK offices continue to be opened all over the country, and we are therefore very pleased to welcome Goodmayes to the group. The team at CENTURY 21 Goodmayes has a vast amount of business experience and crucially they also have a huge level of local knowledge that will stand them in good stead. We know that the support, expertise and resource they will receive from CENTURY 21 UK head office will help to ensure a strong opening for the office.

“CENTURY 21 Goodmayes and all CENTURY 21 offices also benefit from our global property portal, which allow all our properties to be listed and viewed by a worldwide audience. This is particularly important for London and the surrounding areas which have a large number of overseas property purchasers looking to buy. Clearly, our expansion plans for 2014-2015 are quickly becoming a reality; we will be announcing a number of new offices across the country over the coming weeks.”
