“Location, location, location” may be the cornerstone of wise property investment, yet many people are unaware of the importance of location in making the right choice of letting agent – whether as landlord or tenant.
Letting agency is an intensely local business. It is essential that letting agents are fully conversant with the issues of the day relating to the rental market within what is often no more than a mile or two from their office. Preferably they should themselves be resident in the area in which they are working.
At Oakfield, we are more conscious than most of the overriding importance of providing a local service, delivered passionately by local people. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why we enjoy such a good atmosphere in our offices.
This combination of experience and local expertise delivers an unsurpassed and intense market knowledge of Hastings, Eastbourne and Bexhill, meaning that landlords and tenants can expect to receive the most relevant and up to date comment and opinion when it comes to property rental appraisal, market intelligence and strategic marketing advice.
In our experience, too many letting agencies simply have token representation in the area, with a mobile workforce managed by remote directors concentrating on building an empire, rather than earning the loyalty and respect of local people over the years.
We believe that close customer contact, regular communication and straight-talking expert advice is what the public deserves. This can only be delivered via a wholeheartedly independent and thoroughly local letting agency with its clients’ best interests at heart. As a landlord or tenant you have a choice of letting agencies, so choose wisely! Choose Oakfield.
