“I am thrilled to be joining the Connells Lettings team at such an exciting time in its development,” says Derek. “We will be opening lots of new lettings branches this year in Worcester, Exeter, Bristol, Taunton, Yeovil, Paignton and Torquay. This will open up Connells expertise in lettings to a wider market at a time when there is high demand for good quality rental accommodation and advice.”

Connells is a market-leading estate agency in the South West with over 20 prominent local offices. By extending its lettings branches alongside its existing residential branches, Connells will offer the complete package of property services to more landlords and tenants.

“Unlike some letting agents, Connells can provide landlords with an all-encompassing advice service,” Derek continues. “Our landlords have access to lettings advice but also investment opportunities, mortgages, conveyancing and much more. We’re a national agent with outstanding local expertise to maximise our customers’ yields in the current market.”
