Elliot Brown has been recently appointed as a Sales Negotiator to boost our busy leading property sales team based in West Bridgford.

Prior to joining us, Elliott gained two valuable years of experience at William H Brown in the city centre and during his time there he completed a Level 3 Sales Apprenticeship in Estate Agency giving him excellent knowledge within the industry.

Elliot, 20, said: “It has been really refreshing to see how differently agencies can work, especially between a corporate brand and an independent local agency.”

Val Shakespeare, director and head of property sales at Royston and Lund, said: “Elliot is a great addition to the team, his positive and enthusiastic approach to the role ensures clients are very happy with the service they receive. Being local and having been brought up in West Bridgford, he has a great knowledge of the area. He has an eye for detail and goes above and beyond to help whenever he can. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to add him to our team in West Bridgford, where I am sure he will quickly become a real asset to our business."

Please understand that a contractor will only attend to genuine emergency concerns at their own discretion, with attendance being if there is a risk of further damage to a property or danger to tenant/life (this does not include the facility of attending to tenants being locked out).

We would also request that you check your move in letter for individual property information as to whether your landlord has got British Gas or Homeserve call-out cover or a similar policy in place with a preferred tradesman. If this is the case please contact them direct and quote your postcode and the membership number. Royston & Lund are unable to authorise a contractor attending to any property where a landlord has their own cover in place.

Although harsh, we must state that if a call out request is non emergency upon the contractor attend, the cost will be bound to the tenant.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy Easter.

Former Notts County star Gary Lund’s estate agency is expanding with a second office in Nottinghamshire.

Royston & Lund, based in West Bridgford, will open a new branch in Keyworth next month, creating four jobs.

The company, which was established in 1994, has been keen to expand into Keyworth for a number of years.

Director and co-founder Mr Lund, who made 392 Football League appearances during the 1980s and 1990s, said: “We have been selling and renting properties in the Rushcliffe area for many years so understand the property industry very well – Keyworth was our first choice when it came to looking for new office space.

“Our expansion was prompted to meet demand. We identified a need for an agent with experience and one which provided a high quality and professional service in the area so jumped at the opportunity when the right unit became available.

“With a growing customer base we knew we needed to extend our presence to ensure that we were continuing to deliver the high quality service we’re known for.”

The agency’s West Bridgford office, in Fountain Court, employs more than 25 staff and had its new look unveiled by Rushcliffe MP Ken Clarke in 2008.

It offers sales and lettings services – an offering that will be replicated at its new branch in The Square, Keyworth.

Mr Lund added: “The new branch has created four new jobs and I’m really pleased with the team we will have in place.

“We pride ourselves on providing an unrivalled package that benefits our clients and it’s all down to our dedicated, professional and approachable staff who are responsible for getting us to where we are today.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team and have complete faith that our next office will be just as successful as our first.

“We've been wanting to open an office in Keyworth for some time so, after almost a quarter of a century in business, we thought it was time to secure a new premises there.

“We hope that we bring something new and innovative to Keyworth and the surrounding area’s property market."

Mr Lund, a striker, spent eight years at Notts County from 1987 to 1995, scoring 62 goals in 248 appearances, which included a season in the top flight under Neil Warnock.

He also played for Grimsby Town, Lincoln City, Hull City and Chesterfield, as well as winning three England U21 caps, before retiring in 1997.
