Lettings Service

We let and manage property throughout Greater Manchester & Cheshire.

 

Always Helping Landlords

In 2003, our director Stephen Bowden left the corporate world of residential investment and development to work with individual clients, helping them to secure investment property and grow their buy-to-let portfolios. We now have an established business with a proven track record, letting our clients properties to quality professional and corporate tenants for the very best rents available.

Our Ethos

Our ethos has always remained the same; assisting our Landlords to maintain high-performing investment property and portfolios. We will look after your properties as if they were our own!

Marketing Services

Equipped with comprehensive internet marketing tools, social media, websites and advertising on the UK’s leading property portal, Rightmove, our lettings team always work towards achieving fast letting results. Forward planning and sensitivity towards setting tenancy termination dates ensure many of our homes are pre-let well before a property is due to be vacated.

Rent Guarantee

Rental Guarantee is also offered to our Landlords on a managed rental property, subject terms and conditions.
