Established in 2014, Ashfield Lettings was created as a family run business in order to provide local landlords with better value than the typical high street options. The idea was not only to give landlords cheaper rates, but to provide an exceptional service which far exceeds the usual expectations.
Times have certainly changed in property letting over the last 10 years with a dramatic shift towards internet searching. The premise of our business is based upon these 2 principle ideas: - Firstly, to focus on providing a service that is superior and more personal than the corporate alternatives, and secondly, with the internet at the forefront and without the need for a high street shop swallowing up costs, to offer great value pricing to local property investors and landlords.
We are challenging the misconception that a good letting agent needs to have a high street presence. In fact, many of our newest clients have been landlords who've switched to us from these expensive shop based agents. As well as having more rent in their pocket each month, they receive a more efficient, modern service that puts their needs first.
Having worked for estate agents locally, Lee always felt frustrated by how his employers put ‘profit before service’ and by their slow, old fashioned practices. He decided there was a better way, and with the backing of some of his clients, Ashfield Lettings was formed.
Lee uses a modern business approach ensuring that a quality professional service takes top priority. He is also NFoPP Level 3 qualified and has a superior knowledge of the local rental markets.
With over 20 years banking experience including 8 years of working with small businesses, you can probably guess that she looks after the finances and accounts for the business including setting up our unique, fast same-day payments for landlords.
Lisa is well respected locally and has high standards of ethics and integrity. Ashfield Lettings also benefits from her top notch sales and customer service skills!
Our family team also includes Jamie, who as well as being a qualified plasterer - www.smoothwalls.com - also carries out a variety of general property repairs for landlords, to an excellent standard.
In addition, we've built a team of trusted, professional tradesmen who support us with repairs and maintenance at very competitive rates (we don't add on any extra commision like other agents!). So if its a complete rewire or just a dripping tap, we’ve got it covered! We also affiliate with a local accountant and solicitor who can provide legal support and advice.
If you're a landlord looking for a personal, honest service with no small print or hidden fees, please give us a call: -
