Welcome to Professional Properties

Local, Letting Experts

A New Breed of Agent

Meet Us

The Private Rental Sector has undergone a massive change over the last 20 years and it is a challenge keeping up with changes in attitudes to renting as well as the raft of new legislation.

Renting used to be the preference of people in their 20s, but now includes a full cross section of the population; professionals, couples, families, sharers and retirees. Lifestyle changes and choices have contributed to this as has the introduction of different types and higher quality of rental properties.

Everyone’s needs are different and are largely based on their own goals and desires. Having dealt with local property since 1999, we are confident that we can provide solutions to the many problems facing landlords and tenants in this, sometimes complicated, property environment. That’s what we do’.


Professional Properties started letting and managing property in 1999 and the same management team is still in place now!

Student Lettings

Professional Properties Student Lettings opened for business in 2014 and is now one of the areas leading suppliers of rented accommodation for students attending Derby University.

Ask an Expert

We have a panel of experts who are on hand to provide information and services related to your specific requirements.


Professional Properties is a team of
focused individuals with one goal:

“What does the customer want and how can we deliver it?”


We always see Opportunities NOT Obstacles. Whilst other agents may say it can’t be done, we say “How can it be done?”. There is usually a way to resolve anything.

Professional Properties is an independent, family owned business. We put Service BEFORE Shareholders and treat our customers as individual people and not just a number.

We aim to make a Difference EVERY Day; to help someone achieve their goals in whatever way we can. That is the Professional Properties approach… and we love it!

We are passionate about the quality of service that we offer and we always listen to what our customers have to say. By listening, we change, we improve and we deliver.
