Every month we like to highlight all the great work done by all the wonderful property professionals at Granger & Oaks during the previous month. ‘Treating it like our own’ has always been our guiding principle, so each month we like to put the spotlight on the individual that has done the most to go the extra mile for clients and really ‘treated it like their own’.

April is over and everyone has been a star in their own right throughout the month, but we can only have one winner who received several nominations from the team for their positive attitude and helpfulness.

This person always seems to get the challenging situations and conversations, but never lets them faze her - she remains calm and professional and is always positive and helpful even in the most difficult of circumstances.

Yes, this month’s Star Performer is, Property Administrator, Bernadette, ‘calm-under-pressure’ Cunnane.

Well done Bernadette, you are an example to us all in how you calmly, but assertively deal with the challenges we can face in residential lettings.

According to research by Endsleigh Insurance, one of the country’s leading specialist insurance providers, landlords who use a letting agent save £1910 a year compared to those who market their properties directly to tenants.

The survey of has uncovered many misconceptions about the value offered by letting agents. Most of the savings relate to services which help guard against costly void periods. Three in four (76 per cent) respondents reported that their agent helps them proactively find tenants, as well as other services, such as help with legal and financial matters, which contribute to a reduction in overall costs.

The survey also shows that the relationships between letting agents and landlords are not just about the financial benefits. The findings show that of those who use an agent, half (50 per cent) were most attracted to their current agent because of their local knowledge and more than two in five (44 per cent) claim that excellent service is a deciding factor. Quality of life has also proved to be a factor with two in five (41per cent) feeling that the main benefit of working with an agent is that it provides peace of mind.

Head of Property at Endsleigh, David Hadden, said, ‘Landlords who use letting agents find them very useful – especially before a letting – and state they help to reduce stress, free up time and, critically, save them money. The perceived cost of using a letting agent is among the biggest deterrents for many landlords, but those that do use an agent are on average reporting significant savings. Landlords considering letting their properties directly to tenants in light of changing legislation must seek advice to avoid potentially compromising their income, their quality of life and the provision of support and service that agents can offer.’

Director at Granger & Oaks, Andrew Sainsbury commented, ‘this survey proves what we have always believed to be true, that using an agent with expertise and a thorough understanding of the local market ultimately provides a better return for landlords. And also comes with the added benefit of peace of mind and time saved. Using an agent should really be a no-brainer for landlords, but it is up to individual agents to prove this to their clients.’
