Century 21 UK has made what it claims to be the largest acquisition in its history, snapping up an independent agency in south west London.
Century 21’s Cobham and Esher franchise has acquired Jezzards Estate Agent and claims the size of the deal is “setting a real benchmark for what the franchise can achieve in the years to come.”
Dylan Mollison-Cousen, business owner of the office in Cobham, has merged the pipeline of properties and will operate from two offices, adding a new branch in Hampton to his base in Cobham.
Both offices are in the process of being rebranded to ‘Century 21 Luxe Residential’.
Chris Summers, head of franchising at Century 21 UK parent company SDL Group, says: “Being the largest acquisition in our history, it’s a fantastic way to end the year on a high and gives great immediate growth to franchisee Dylan and his team.
“Jezzards is a well-known successful independent agent and we are delighted to welcome their offices, staff and customers to the Century 21 family. We are very much in the market for further growth on this level, which we plan to see more of going in to 2020.”
