During the recession, many estate agents leapt into property lettings as a way of buoying up their flagging sales departments. It provided an additional revenue stream when times would otherwise have been extremely tough.
But we decided against this. We are sales specialists, not a jack of all trades. After all, lettings is very different discipline, with its own set of complex regulations. It also requires a different kind of agent, who can deal with maintenance issues, complaining tenants etc.
Following the end of the recession the market once again favours sales over lettings. The trouble is that we hear of several agents who are now redeploying their letting agents into sales, with confusing consequences to say the least!
We’re glad that we stuck to what we know! Our staff are superb at selling property – it’s what we do. We get a buzz out of every sale, which is handled by a dedicated professional who really knows what he or she is doing. Despite the busy atmosphere in our offices, we continue to provide an enjoyable service to our valued clients, which is based on honesty, integrity and proven results.
So if you are considering letting as a possible alternative to selling, then choose an agent who handles both. However, if you are determined to sell without compromise and want a friendly dedicated service that will help you achieve this aim, at the highest price the market will pay and within a convenient timescale, you know whom to call! We look forward to being of service!
