Purnell said: “I am really excited at our decision to join Century 21 and that our current offices will undergo refurbishment and a re-brand during August which will then see us launch as Century 21 offices on the 1 September as we head into the autumn market. Century 21 was a natural choice for us and we hope to grow our coverage with further offices in the coming months.”

Stuart White, Director at Century 21, added: “I am extremely pleased to have a chain of three existing agency offices converting to Century 21 and this will enhance our client offering substantially in the London area. Abbey Estate Agents have operated in their local market for some years and this provides an exciting way forward for both our businesses for the benefit of clients as well as providing the additional referral opportunities associated with being a part of a global estate agency system.”
