Matt approached The Bristol Residential Letting Co. in 2013 when he was looking to invest in his first buy to let property in Bristol. Matt was aware of our reputation as an agent that really helped investors and he was soon taking advice from Deborah Hadley on the right places to buy, the likely achievable rents, the quality of tenants available and whether to furnish the property or not.
Matt opted for a new build apartment as his first purchase, enjoying the ease at which it could be bought, the peace of mind of the new build warranty gave him and most importantly the yield available. With completion imminent Deborah got to work marketing the apartment off plan in order to secure a tenant for Matt before other apartments in the development came onto the market. With a great tenant found and with our estimated achievable rent spot on Matt was delighted.
Before long Matt was back in conversation with Deborah and his Bristol portfolio began to grow.
To ensure life for Matt is as easy as possible all of his properties are managed by one of our Senior Property Managers – Edmund Forsyth. Over the years they have built up a terrific relationship understanding exactly how each other work and ensuring that Matt’s tenants have great places to live. Edmund like all our property managers is based in the local office and not only meet tenants when they move in but are also on hand whenever the need arises to visit a property. Landlords are also welcome to pop into the office any time they like to meet and chat with the people who are looking after their investments.

“I was referred to The Bristol Residential Letting co from an estate agent when purchasing my first buy-to-let property in Bristol. After shopping around and meeting a number of agents, it was clear that The Bristol Residential Letting Co offered a superior and more professional service than the other agents I approached.
