Easthams & Co have been letting properties throughout Preston and the Fylde since 1984. Many of our original landlords from all those years ago are still with us today. So we decided to ask them why they have continued to use us for all these years. Below are the top 10 reasons:-
1) A personal approach – Our directors are hands on and available to our landlords at all times as they know them, their properties and their tenants, giving them complete peace of mind.
2) Specialist letting agency – 100% focus on lettings with over 30 years in property management we have the knowledge and experience to be able to deal with anything that may arise.
3) Competitive fees – We regularly conduct market research to ensure our fees remain fair and competitive giving our landlords great value for money. Also ensuring tenants are not put off by extortionate fees charged by some agencies when applying for properties.
4) Flexible viewing times – As we target professional working tenants we offer viewings out of office hours in the evenings and weekends increasing the speed with which properties are let.
5) Honest advice – We provide landlords with completely honest advice from the outset, if something needs doing to the property we will insist it’s done prior to marketing. This ensures all our properties are of the highest standard something we are known for locally which in turn increases the number of tenants that contact us.
6) Excellent tradesmen – Over the years we have carefully hand picked only the best local tradesmen to work with, we also carry out regular price checks to ensure their rates remain competitive and unlike many other agents we do not add commission on top keeping costs down for landlords.
7) Advertising – We advertise on all the major property portals Rightmove, Zoopla & Prime Location etc as well as local publications and our own website that has over 5,000 hits a month
8) Corporate/Professional Tenants – We are the preferred accommodation suppliers to many of the areas Blue Chip Companies and also work closely with our sister company Spencer Hobbs Relocation ensuring we have a steady stream of high quality tenants unavailable to our competitors.
9) Local knowledge – All our directors are Preston/Lytham born and bred giving us a unique insight into the area and providing us with a huge network of local contacts. We research the local markets thoroughly producing regular reports on where to invest.
10) Run by Landlords for landlords – Many like the fact that the directors are landlords in their own right giving them first hand experience of the problems and concerns faced by landlords.
