We hear from two local property business owners, who have become Patrons of the East Midlands Chamber WORDS BY KERRY SMITH

idlands property agency The Lettings & Sales Business has, along with its sister brand Fraser Stretton, been named as Patrons of the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce. The announcement came in August, just one month after the first birthday of both The Lettings & Sales Business and Fraser Stretton, a consultative service which helps small and mediumsized housing developers sell new-build homes. The companies, run by husband and wife Narinder Singh Nijjar and Jaz Kaur, will form a synergetic operation with the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire chamber. The relationship will help to inform the chamber’s activities in an effort to enhance the businesses and communities across the region. Narinder told East Midlands Chamber: “It’s been a very promising first year with rapid growth, and now we want to increase our visibility in the East Midlands business community

after joining the chamber as a patron. “It provides us with a great platform to educate people about how we’re trying to do things differently in sales and lettings by removing the stress for everyone involved, while we can also offer expertise in how the property market is faring during these uncertain economic times.” In their first 12 months in business, Narinder and Jaz have recorded a 116% growth in the lettings side of the business. The growth has resulted in expanding from home offices to taking up premises in Stoughton with the hiring of four new staff members. In the East Midlands Chamber news, Chief Executive of East Midlands Chamber Scott Knowles, said: “Narinder and Jaz have a fascinating story of using their experience in working alongside other businesses to carve out their own niche and in turn offer excellent career development opportunities to their growing team. “We look forward to working

closely with The Lettings & Sales Business and Fraser Stretton, which are fantastic small businesses that have a strong ethos to set them apart in a hugely competitive industry.” The two companies will also be sponsoring the Generation Next Young Business Person of the Year category at the East Midlands Chamber Leicestershire Business Awards. Jaz commented: “We’re excited for the start of our journey as we join the East Midlands Chamber as Patrons. “We’re looking forward to a great partnership and having the support of this fantastic business community will be invaluable as The Lettings & Sales Business and Fraser Stretton continues to grow. “It will also provide us with a platform to support other businesses, and as sponsors of the Generation Next category at the chamber’s Leicestershire Business Awards, we’re looking forward to celebrating the young professionals who are making a difference in their industry.” NICHE | 77
