We have sold our lettings division to focus on property sales.
Having worked hard over the last 9 years to establish a reputation envied by many of our competitors, we have sold the lettings division of the business to Leaders Romans Group, one of the UK’s (and Stamford’s) leading lettings and property management specialists.
This has been a difficult and sometimes emotional decision to make. It was very important to me and Lottie that our clients and colleagues would continue to be looked after and that the same personal level of service and performance could be maintained by the new owner of the lettings agency. We believe this has been achieved and Leaders’ national strength, financial backing and local market knowledge will allow the company to grow and introduce new services.
We will miss working with our lettings colleagues and thank them for their hard work, support and loyal dedication over the years. Thanks to Louise Howe, Mel Close, Lucy Barnes, Sarah Howe, Martin Matthews, Eleanor Burge and Lisa Sherriff.
Moving forward, Lottie and I will continue to be proud local business owners but will now focus all of our attention in the development and growth of our sales offering local homeowners. It’s a very exciting and positive time for us. The Stamford and Rutland property market continues to expand as a result of our micro-property markets, local area regeneration, government ‘help to buy’ incentives, superb local education authority schools and a wealth of outstanding private day and boarding school alternatives that all contribute to energising property sales and boosting relocation figures.
However, we sincerely believe that a buoyant property market shouldn’t make for marketing complacency. In fact, with a strong market comes the need to offer homeowners more creative marketing solutions as they plan to sell their home or investments. We know there is a better way to sell property and we want to offer our clients something different to what’s currently available, such as advising our clients on how to make their house stand out from its competition and suggesting practical ways to help them maximise on their home’s value.
As we continue to strive forward, we know we are well supported by a strong sales team with shared values, with Janet Cottis - sales manager, Lorna Bright - sales negotiator and welcome a newcomer to the team with local Rutland resident Ben Schofield as sales valuer.
Moving on and moving UPP!
