Prominent Office

Our eye-catching office is located in the ever-popular South Leicester suburb of Clarendon Park, making it easy for landlord and tenants to access six days a week. We have strived to create an environment that is welcoming and friendly which offers our landlord and tenants a memorable experience. As a result, we have a strong physical brand which can be trusted and recognised throughout Leicestershire and recently branched out to areas such as Newcastle and Bangor.

Online Presence

Traditional media advertising such as newspaper and magazine publications will always have an effective place in the property industry. However, coupled with online advertising, your property has the potential to reach customers the length and breadth of the country. We invest in our website, to ensure it is modern, easy to navigate and displays properties in their best form. We strive to offer our clients the maximum exposure for every property we market, utilising major portals such as Rightmove, Zoopla, StuRents and Accommodation for Students.

Revision Tips

Social Media

In the fast-paced world we live in, social media has outstripped all other forms of marketing and advertising in the past 10 years. With users now exceeding the two billion mark and the average person spending typically 1-2 hours a day browsing social media, we believe it is a marketing platform that has to be recognised.

Our members of staff are highly proficient at ensuring that our properties and posts are added to Facebook and Instagram. This ensures that your property is reaching the largest online audiences possible and helping you find a tenant or the latest information.


We value our long-lasting relationships with landlords and tenants, offering support and advice. Our landlords and tenants know that whatever the time or day if they have a query it will be answered as soon as possible.
