Having completed all the training Courses, attended all the information days and then ran my own business for many years, I have a great overview of Residential Lettings. I am also a Landlord myself.
Throughout my career I have spent time working in areas outside of Swindon, such as Bristol, Bath, Chipping Sodbury/Yate, and have covered rural areas such as Dursley, Tetbury, Malmesbury, Cirencester, Shrivenham, Faringdon, etc.
Previously owned and operated a successful franchised business in Swindon, growing the Portfolio from 25 to 300+ managed properties, moving from a small serviced office to Commercial Road Premises, when standalone Letting Agents were a rare thing in Swindon and building a successful business and reputation.
Now based in Swindon offering a specialist service to new landlords, often the first time they have offered their property to let, Investment landlords wanting advice on purchasing a property to offer to the letting market, letting a family members home whilst they are in care, etc. Happy to answer any question/concern landlords have regarding the legal aspects of becoming a landlord right down to what colour the carpets should be, after arranging thousands of lets, hopefully I have the answer. I take my time, no longer overseeing a large Portfolio and a very busy office premises, able to meet landlords at their home, visit properties with them and arrange contractors as required. Getting the property ready for offering to let, is so important to attract the best possible tenants, most of my tenants stay long term, with 12 years being the current record.
