08 May Calling All Landlords …..
Following a hugely successfulyear selling property in the South Bucks and Rickmansworth areas, Sarah Cassidy at virtual estate agency Place has announced that they are now formally bringing their unique approach to the residential lettings market as well.
Sarah says: “Our customer focused approach which provides access to our services across all seven days of the week and “outside of normal business hours” has proven very popular and whilst, since our inception, we have always handled residential lettings alongside our sale activities, we now see it as a core market and have developed our proposition accordingly”
Place Estate Agents provide two lettings services. Firstly they will act on the basis of finding and securing a tenant only, with the landlord handling the ongoing management, or they can provide a full management and rent collection service with an experienced ARLA qualified team handling everything. This managed service also includes a full 24/7 maintenance service to give peace of mind to landlords and tenants alike.
With advertising on all the major property websites and innovative use of social networking and email databases, properties marketed with Place can be viewed by over 250 potential tenants every minute of every day, seven days a week. In addition, Place run advertising in the main local press and their distinctive To Let and Let By boards are becoming highly visible across the area.
Place are members of the Property Ombudsman Scheme and the National Association of Estate Agents and their lettings management team are members of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents, the Tenancy Deposit Scheme, the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks and the Association of Professional Inventory Providers. These organisations ensure strict codes of conduct are upheld at all times and provide both landlord and tenants with the peace of mind of knowing that their tenancy arrangements are being handled by professionals.
Sarah Cassidy continues: The residential lettings market is fast moving and an agent needs to be available at the times when a prospective tenant wishes to view. Our approach is that we “dare to be different” and we like to provide our clients with nice surprises like superb marketing, personal attention, excellent results and value for money fees.
Already we are gaining business through recommendation and “word of mouth” which is both pleasing and proof that our approach is hitting the right spot with customers.”
The Place lettings service provides a new and innovative approach that gets results and Sarah and her team therefore invite landlords to contact them and see how their different approach can benefit them and get the outcome they require.
