A couple are celebrating as their Ilkeston letting agency branches out into sales and is rebranded under an international name.

Roy and Sue Cook, of Pelham Property Services, Ilkeston, have made the decision to join forces with global network Century 21 Estate Agents.

The office, which has recently moved from Bath Street to their new address, 2a Station Road, will now be named Century 21 Pelham Property Services and will offer customers the chance to let and buy properties.

The husband and wife business partners have been jointly run the letting agent’s since 1999, with Sue Cook managing a twin office in Orlando, Florida.

“We’ve lived back and forth on different continents for two years now,” Mr Cook said.

“As time has moved on we’ve chosen to rebrand ourselves with Cemtury 21, which links the two offices and gives us huge scope to expand.”

The family-run letting agency has an average tenancy record of three-and-a -half years, with the national average currently standing at one year.
