Busy days, new staff, hot coals and a little dancing update!

The sales offices of Guy Leonard & Company had an incredibly busy week last week. This was partly due to some staff shortages but was also the level of activity and the number of people wanting to look at properties as well as having their properties valued.
 

Busy, busy days!

Growth in Lettings

Guy Leonard & Company are seeing a good level of growth in their Horsham Letting Department.  We are delighted to have found ideal tenants for one of our landlords who has two properties within the perimeters of her own home.
 

The life of a Letting Agent is a very varied one!

We all know our own profession inside out but do we ever think about the day to day workings of the jobs other people do? I’m not sure we do so perhaps it would entertain the reader to think about the daily routine of a letting agent.
 

The Truth about Climate Change

The truth about Climate Change!  The question of climate change is one of the great issues of our time.

Wall to wall opportunities

Neil Moore of Guy Leonard & Company surveys the property market landscape and finds that there are good things to look  forward to in 2010.
 

Buy to let is back

According to Susan Emmet from the Times - Buy-to-let is back...There is nothing like a housing market crash to test a landlord's mettle.
 

More Expansion in Lettings

We believe one of the keys to our success, and something that makes us different from many companies, is the continuity of familiar faces within the letting department. 
 

GL & Co celebrate Christmas

Estate Agency can be a funny business - we work with our vendors, purchasers, landlords and tenants when they are making huge decisions relating to their home and property needs.
 

What works well in lettings?

Further to my last blog there still has been no 'let up' for the lettings team (pardon the bad pun!) and my Christmas cards remain unwritten.
 

Lettings market as active as ever.

We know that the ups and downs of the property market, whether it be sales or lettings, is something that is close to most people's hearts and is always a conversation topic wherever we go.
