Opening a sales division within GFW Letting is something that we’re hugely excited about it. It’s testament to the hard work and dedication from our team of property experts who have played a fundamental role in the success of the business in a competitive and ever-changing marketplace.
The move into sales follows strong growth for our three-year-old agency and, importantly, a renewed confidence in the North East housing market, where there is a high demand for sales as well as letting services. Indeed, the latest figures from RICS revealed that house prices are expected to rise by close to 25 per cent over the next five years.
A combined result of steady year-on-year letting growth and client demand led us to create a sales division. We work predominately with landlords who are at the core of our lettings service, but we have been increasingly approached by homeowners looking for suitable buyers, as well as professional landlords wanting the buy-to-let process managed under one roof.
Since GFW Letting established in 2013, we have grown strongly, especially in the last 12 months, winning the Best Service category at the North East Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Awards and Apprentice of the Year at The Newcastle Business Awards. During this time, the agency has also increased its staff number to create a fully experienced and specialist team of property experts who work with landlords’ needs in mind. Opening the sales division will broaden their services as we look to widen our client base to include homeowners and potential buyers. The combined team at GFW Letting has a strong sales experience so are fully up-to-speed with the sales market.
Whether it’s sales or letting, with our wealth of industry experience, we provide honest advice from a knowledgeable, engaged team. With a supportive approach and excellent negotiation skills, we will give clients an informed view whether that’s for a rental home or purchased property. The next few months will see our new division go full steam ahead in a fast paced and competitive marketplace – we cannot wait to get involved.
