Merged firms of Leaders and Romans to double in size over next five years

The company that operates two of the industry’s best known brands – Leaders and Romans – has said that the combined business is to double in size within five years.

Leaders and Romans merged in March under the parent title of Property Service Holdings.

The combined branch network of Leaders and Romans has doubled in size in the last three years to more than 150 branches.

Now PSH has announced plans to double again in the next five years, and is looking for people with the energy and ambition to drive the next phase in this

Allison Thompson, managing director at Leaders, said the expansion would offer existing staff great career potential, while many new roles would be created.


Thompson, pictured above, who herself worked her way up from branch administrator, said: “With growth comes an exceptional opportunity for our employees to develop and progress their careers within our business.

“We have a huge variety of new and exciting roles in a range of locations, and we’re looking for high-calibre motivated people from the wider industry.

“We consider our staff our most important asset for delivering an exceptional service and achieving the right results for our business and our customers. That’s why we invest heavily in our people, with first-class training and ongoing personal and professional development open to all.”

Michael Cook, lettings managing director at Romans, began his estate agency career as a sales negotiator and has been instrumental in many of the agency’s accomplishments, from steering one of its most profitable branches through the last recession to managing the growth of Romans Direct, Romans’ internal customer service team.

Cook, pictured below, said: “Like our colleagues at Leaders, we value the huge contribution of our employees to the success of our business and make it a priority to recruit, retain and invest in the right people to help them reach their full potential.”

    Bigger Bigger and Bigger does not mean best.

    Have a shave before the picture.

    I’m assuming the buying up of the smaller agency continues then.Not so good for the consumer who is left with an impersonal and centralised service, where clients are failed in favour of profits and balance sheets.

    Perhaps good news for the smaller, hard working agents who wish to develop their business with the reduction in real quality competition who really cares for their clients…. Every cloud!
