WHAT IS YOUR PRIORITY WHEN CHOOSING YOUR LETTING AGENT?
Any agent can tell a prospective client what they wish to hear, ‘we can let your property within 2 weeks, ‘we have a long list of prospective tenants looking for a property just like yours’, ‘it’s definitely worth what you are wanting to achieve for it’. What we prefer here at Russell and Butler is honesty, transparency and with no hard sell, cold calling or bombarding potential clients with numerous mail outs.
You will be handing over your most valuable asset to complete strangers to look after, it is therefore important to choose an agent you can trust that will do all they can to secure you good quality tenants who will look after your property and who will pay the rent on time each month. You will want to have faith in the agent that they will not just place anyone in your property, but that they will listen to your requirements and carefully select the right tenants for you. You will need an agent that will report and deal with any maintenance issues to you in a timely manner ensuring that your property is kept in good condition, so as to maximise the potential rental income on your investment. At Russell & Butler our Lettings team are dedicated to delivering the highest level of customer service, it is our passion and what drives our business forward. Our Lettings portfolio has grown dramatically with many new clients coming to us through recommendations from our existing Landlords.
How do I know your business is better than any others you may ask, where is the proof? Well, as they say, actions speak louder than words of course. You will see on the reports we receive from Rightmove alone how we have done over the past 6 months, with a total of 100 new property instructions to the market, compared to our closest competitor on 57. Properties let in the same period was 71, again compared to our competitor on 41.
