Century 21 UK Opens New Harrow Office

CENTURY 21 UK, one of the fastest growing estate agency franchises in the UK, has opened its latest office in Harrow. The brand new CENTURY 21 Harrow branch is run by owner and entrepreneur, Dhruva Adatia, and is based at 8 Peterborough Road, Harrow, London. It offers a variety of property services including sales, lettings, property management and commercial property sales.

CENTURY 21 Harrow 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).

The launch event for the office was held in March and was attended by members of the local business community, CENTURY 21 UK staff, as well as local residents.

All CENTURY 21 Harrow properties are available to view on the newly revamped CENTURY 21 UK website as well as the global website.

Dhruva Adatia, Owner of CENTURY 21 Harrow, said:

“This is truly an exciting time for me personally and my family as we open the doors of CENTURY 21 Harrow. Being an entrepreneur at heart I never really saw myself working for a large corporate company with a regular nine to five. I wanted to pursue something I could build from the ground up and thus looked at the property market. Through the support of family and friends I found out there was already some synergy involving property and the only thing missing was a property agent to broker deals and manage portfolios.

“This in turn led me to CENTURY 21 UK which offers a compelling proposition for a number of reasons – firstly, the fact it is a major internationally-established brand, secondly, those international links provide a range of property opportunities for clients, and also, the major investment and commitment from Shepherd Direct means we have incredible back-office support from a dedicated team and a highly 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 a community we know and love. We are looking forward to servicing all the property needs of the people of Harrow.”

Rob Clifford, Chief Executive of CENTURY 21 UK and Group Commercial Director at Shepherd Direct Group, said: “We are delighted to welcome Dhruva and his team to the CENTURY 21 UK family and we are very confident they will be able to build a successful business within Harrow. They have tremendous local knowledge and a commitment to offer market-leading, quality services within their area. We also know that the support, expertise and resource they will receive from the CENTURY 21 UK head office will help to ensure a strong opening for the office and enable them to hit the ground running.

“The opening of CENTURY 21 Harrow represents a particularly busy time for our business as we have a large number of other offices which will also be opening across the country over the next couple of months. In 2014 we granted 21 new Franchise Agreements, which was a record year for the business, and we have ambitious targets during 2015 which will see us exceed that number.

“As a Group we continue to develop our proposition – our recently launched new website is certainly a huge boost for offices, as is our revamped training support which covers everything from induction through to enhanced sales skills. We are leaving no stone unturned in the level of support and opportunity we can provide to office owners and we will continue to develop our offering in order to allow them to develop highly successful businesses.”
