The Lettings Agency of the Year Awards 2014
The Lettings Agency of the Year Awards 2014 took place in London last Friday. This Sunday Times event is the only awards event which focuses solely on letting which is why we are delighted to have been recognised in three categories: Best Medium Agency in the South East, Best Property Management and Best Student Lettings Agency.
We were so pleased to have been awarded gold for Best Medium Agency in the South East. The Judges were impressed with our 360° service, which covers all aspects of being a landlord from investing in property to letting and managing it right through to building works and furnishing. This is backed by more than 40 years of experience in the Oxfordshire letting market, so we really know how to get the best out of your investment.
“The directors at Finders Keepers believe that their business is about providing good service through excellent and diligent staff. Their retention rates, managed occupancy
percentage and arrears rates are all proof that this approach works.”
The fact that property management is kept in-house was also a big factor in our win. Our
Property Managers are based locally which allows for hands-on management of the tenancy lifecycle, maintaining high standards throughout. These factors, amongst others,
were also behind our bronze win for Best Property Management.
“Finders Keepers has impressive knowledge and is extremely passionate about the industry as a whole. Extremely low dispute rates, 99% rent collection and an occupancy
rate of 99.2% proves they are doing a great job.”
We are passionate about doing a good job and our team is highly qualified, with 84% of eligible staff holding the ARLA Propertymark Qualified in Residential Letting and Property Management, something which we believe is quite unique in our industry.
The proactive property management and expertise of staff even extends to our student letting division: ‘The List’ is their comprehensive catalogue of property listings, which is ‘launched’ in December each year. The result? This year, 97.5% of the total list was let by May, some four months before the tenancies will start. Our Student Letting department were delighted to win Bronze for Best Student Lettings Agency last week.
