Commercial and residential property specialist Centrick has appointed Callum Rowland to lead its East Midlands operations.
Callum, who joined the company in November last year, becomes branch manager at the company’s Nottingham office.
“I see what the business has achieved in Birmingham and Solihull and it is really inspiring. It is my aspiration for Nottingham to become an East Midlands hub, mirroring what we are doing in the West Midlands,” said Callum.
“There is a really great opportunity to grow the Centrick business in the region. Our attention to detail, strong central service functions and experienced team will be really set us apart from some stiff competition and it will be a challenge but the future is exciting. We have all the ingredients to be the go-to specialist if you’re selling, buying, renting or letting investment or residential property.”
He added: “At the moment, the Nottingham market is super exciting, with buy to let investors, first time buyers and home movers all making moves in and around the city. With two universities in the city, there is a huge demand for rental units. With strong rental yields, regularly returning 7% plus, Nottingham has a huge appeal to investors.
“There’s also continuous development in the city, with new home and build to rent schemes giving us much-needed stock for both tenants and buyers. Average asking prices are consistently on the rise and currently Nottingham is seeing some of the highest growth in the country.”
Callum joined Centrick from growth strategy roles in recruitment and brings considerable experience from sales management roles at estate agent Renshaw Estates.
Centrick group sales and lettings director Andy Butts said: “Callum’s appointment as branch manager in Nottingham is an important step forward for our East Midlands operations. We will continue to strengthen the team around Callum to support our plans for sustainable growth across the region.”
