Next generation letting agency Accommodation.co.uk is launching in Stockport this month with the support of its Local Lettings Consultant Joe Grundy – as the company’s UK expansion continues.
Accommodation.co.uk’s industry leading technology will streamline and automate time consuming admin tasks for landlords, their Local Lettings Consultants and property management teams.
In the age of Airbnb, the service is designed to create transparency, accountability, convenience and increased response speed. This, coupled with experienced Local Letting Consultants on the ground, will help to improve the renting experience for both landlords and tenants.
Accommodation.co.uk’s nationwide network of highly experienced Lettings Consultants will work with landlords to help them manage their portfolios and maximise their assets. Landlords will also have their own dedicated property manager to look after their tenants during their stay.
Joe will be helping residential landlords and tenants in Stockport and the surrounding areas from the beginning of September after becoming the area’s first Local Letting Consultant for the ‘next-generation’ letting agency.
Joe has 12 years’ experience as a lettings expert, formerly working at Purplebricks for over three years before he became an early adopter of Accommodation.co.uk.
Joe said: “I worked alongside my mother in an agency when I was a teenager. I instantly loved the fast pace of lettings and thrived off of building relationships with landlords and managing their portfolios. A property will be typically let out every six to 12 months, so creating lasting connections with landlords is really important.
“I decided to partner with Accommodation.co.uk because the company is revolutionising the renting experience, and has taken a business model that I’m familiar with and has made it even better. The technology the team has built and implemented will make renting a much easier process for landlords and tenants, helping me to do what I do best – focusing on landlords and their portfolio.
“I’ve got big plans, and I’m looking forward to working towards becoming one of the biggest and most respected letting agents in Stockport. I’ll be building relationships with landlords that have one property to those with hundreds, and will be able to give them all the same top notch customer service. I also want to be the preferred agent for tenants too, as I establish Accommodation.co.uk as the go-to agency for transparency and honesty.”
Tenants in Stockport will be able to find their ideal rental property from the beginning of September, while interested landlords can book a free consultation online with Joe to discuss how Accommodation.co.uk can improve the renting experience for tenants and the landlord, helping them to maximise their asset.
Landlords will also benefit from a free legal updates tool that will alert them via Facebook Messenger to help them keep on top of legislation changes.
Local Lettings Consultants are able to focus on the needs of landlords and provide a high level of customer focused service thanks to a streamlined rental process. There’s also no need for the Local Lettings Consultants to cover the costs of large overheads such as expensive office space. These savings are passed on to landlords, who will benefit from affordable management fees.
Aaron Short, co-founder of Accommodation.co.uk, said: “We’re really pleased to bring Accommodation.co.uk to Stockport. Our vision is to reinvent renting by encouraging the best lettings experts in the country to launch their own Accommodation.co.uk business, so they can use their skills alongside our bespoke technology to improve the customer experience. We’re fully focused on offering tenants the very best properties in their area.
“Joe is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced lettings professional and I’m confident he will bring new energy to Stockport’s market.
“Thanks to the automation of time consuming and costly admin and management tasks, Local Lettings Consultants like Joe are able to focus fully on working with landlords that are committed to providing high quality rental properties and supporting them every step of the way.”
Four Accommodation.co.uk franchises are already up and running in Sheffield, Lincoln, Leeds and Canterbury. Due to huge demand, three new franchises will be opening each month across the UK from October 2019.
