Local entrepreneur and owner of Bondholder company The Birchover Residences, Carl Bridge, has announced the launch of his new estate agency which joins sister company, Portixol Relocations.

Birchover Sales and Lettings Limited commenced trading on 2nd November 2015 and intends to become a major new force in the Derby sales and lettings marketplace. 

Dan Wilkinson, Sales and Lettings Director, leads the business and joins Birchover after 7 years at IMS, where he was the branch manager at Duffield and Belper. The business is supported by the cleaning and maintenance team responsible for the success of The Birchover Residences – which includes a ‘Trip Advisor Top 25 Hotel in the UK’ within its portfolio. Dan comments: “Landlords will be delighted that their properties are being well cared for – and the fact that we get the property turned around so quickly means there are much shorter void periods and cash flow for landlords is quicker and more regular”. The service mirrors that provided in Birchover’s apartment hotels and Lisa Bridge stated “We’re sure that tenants living in properties transferred to us will love the fact that their home gets a spruce-up. We’re hopeful it will mean they will continue to look after the property for the benefit of themselves and the landlords. Ultimately, we’ll have very happy tenants and very happy landlords.”

The unique proposition is that every fully-managed lettings property will be cleaned from top-to-bottom when transferred to Birchover. In addition, at the end of each tenancy, every property is cleaned and minor repairs completed so that the property can be back To Let the very next day. 

Carl Bridge is delighted with the start that the business has made. “The first week has been amazing and we’ve already sold our first property in Duffield. We’re also well ahead of target in terms of lettings properties under management, with dozens of properties in Derby, Duffield, Belper and Alfreton. It’s testament to the faith that landlords have in Dan’s skill and experience, allied to their trust in our maintenance, cleaning and customer service”.

Birchover Sales and Lettings head office is located at The Owl Shed in Darley Abbey Mills, whilst they also have a city centre presence within the same building as Marketing Derby, at Riverside Chambers.
