Successful property specialist unveils new Derbyshire branches

Wed 28 Oct 2015

One of the UK’s most successful and respected property specialists has taken its first steps into Derbyshire by unveiling six new branches in the county.

Leaders recently acquired local firm IMS Lettings and, after rebranding each of its offices, proudly showed off its new name and look at a series of special events last Wednesday (21st October).

A ‘Meet the Experts’ evening was held at its Duffield branch, giving local people a chance to seek advice on all areas of sales, lettings and buy-to-let investment. There was also a launch event at the company’s Derby Cornmarket branch earlier in the day, where staff showcased their new branding and gave away goodies in the city centre.

Amy Burton, area manager at Leaders incorporating IMS, says: “We are delighted to have unveiled our new look in Derbyshire and to have welcomed so many people into our branches on the launch day.

“We are also extremely grateful to our panel of experts who were on hand to provide invaluable advice on all matters from buy-to-let mortgages to tax, conveyancing and lettings legislation.

“Our name may have changed, but customers can rest assured that the same great service from our existing staff is still on offer. In fact, we expect people to notice only positive changes, as we benefit from being part of one of the UK’s largest independent property groups and the increased marketing power this brings.”

Following the acquisition, the six branches in Belper, Borrowash, Derby Cornmarket, Duffield, Long Eaton and Pride Park are now aided by the resources of a national company and supported by in-house experts in areas such as finance, marketing and IT.

“We see this move as allowing us to have the best of both worlds: the backing of a national company and the local expertise, insight and contacts of our current teams in Derbyshire,” Amy explains.

“This is an exciting time for all of us and we look forward to being able to help local people make the most of a booming property market.”

Leaders boasts a network of more than 100 branches across the country following a period of substantial growth after it was founded as a single branch in Brighton in 1983.
