Three firms run by the same family have merged to create one of Derbyshire’s largest independent estate agency brands cope&co.
Husband and wife team Daren and Susan Cope, alongside their son and daughter James and Annie, are bringing their two estate agencies, James Cope Homes and Amber Homes, under the same roof as their residential, sales and property letting business, Professional Properties.
It is the first time the company has undertaken a major merger and rebrand since it launched nearly 25 years ago.
Under its new identity cope&co is one of the largest independent letting and estate agents in the local area offering bespoke lettings and property management services, residential sales, as well as selling current investment properties to investors. A new block management service will also be launching next January.
Susan Cope, the company’s Managing Director, said: “We want to bring all the strings of our business together and now is the time to do it. Daren and I have worked tirelessly to build the company and we decided that coming together, under one brand, was the way to progress.
“Family means everything to us, and we are proud that James and Annie will work as hard as us to grow cope&co.
“What they are achieving is phenomenal and we can’t wait to continue celebrating their successes.”
The new cope&co brand launches this month with a new website and look.
Daren added: “Our new brand is a reflection of our amazing journey so far as a family, but it also marks our aspiration to continue growing as a business.
“We are proud of our family name – so why not celebrate it?
“It has been a real team effort. We are delighted with the outcome, and we now welcome people to cope&co, the new name in property in Derbyshire.”
