Making Renting Better – For our team

It may sound hackneyed, but our team means everything to our business. It’s simple really. If people are nurtured and cared for, they are more likely to be happy and enthusiastic in their work, which means they will take excellent care of our clients.

Everyone on the team is provided with a supportive and trusting environment and encouraged to develop to their full potential. There are regular one-to-ones with senior management. After basic competencies are in place, individuals are given a great deal of autonomy in the training they choose to pursue. So long as it relates to our business of managing rental property, almost anything is up for grabs. People take courses in subjects as diverse as law, technology, management, leadership, business and photography, as well as many others.

The result is clear to see. You’ll notice the enthusiasm in every interaction. We’ve won a string of industry awards and we’re the first estate or letting agency in the UK to have been assessed at the highest level of Platinum by Investors in People.
