We understand that every landlord is different and there are any number of reasons why you are planning to let your property. Whether you’re a buy to let investor, an ‘accidental’ landlord or letting a property for the first time, our professional and attentive approach will help make the whole process run smoothly. We are dedicated to finding the right tenants for your property and getting you the best possible return on your investment.
As a member of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA), we can guide you through the latest legislation and practical issues that will need to be addressed when letting your property, working to the highest standards to meet your specific needs.
Whether you have one property or a large portfolio, we offer three flexible levels of service depending on whether you’re happy to be a hands-on landlord or if you’d prefer us to take care of everything for you for the duration of the tenancy.
We are delighted to have achieved the highest accolade for the third year running by being awarded as 'Exceptional' in the Top 100 letting agents in the country. In association with Rightmove, this is the largest analysis ever undertaken assessing over 25,000 estate agency branches across the UK. We feature in the Best Estate Agent Guide and all of the team here at Duncan Yeardley are thrilled that our efforts continue to be officially recognised.
A good letting agent must be an expert in the area they work in. Almost all of our team both live and are involved in the Bracknell community, which enables us to offer accurate and detailed advice to our clients and tenants alike. The family-run business is owned by Nick Thring, who originally began his career as an estate agent in Bracknell back in 1990 and the lettings department was set-up by Nick’s sister, Helen. As an independent firm you can have the confidence you are dealing with professionals who are genuinely interested in helping you let your property, rather than people who are simply employed to build an empire.
We are aware that our industry hasn’t always enjoyed the best reputation. Not only have we worked diligently over the years to demonstrate that we have the right credentials, but you have the added peace of mind that with us, you are instructing true professionals. We voluntarily chose to become members of the industry’s governing bodies, so you can be sure that you are dealing with a company following the Rules of Conduct and that you have a route to redress, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong.
We have been in our extended premises since opening back in 1987. It is conveniently situated with plenty of free parking, so there is no inconvenience of having to find or pay for a space in the town centre! Please do feel free to call in for an informal chat, where you can always be assured of a friendly welcome.
We understand that many home movers start their search online. In addition to being featured on this website, all of our properties are extensively advertised on several major property portals, including Rightmove and OnTheMarket. We also have an active presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. This is becoming increasingly popular with our followers being able to see all of our homes whilst being kept informed with both interesting local and property-related news.
Sometimes a property needs more than traditional methods of marketing to make it stand out from the crowd. Our unique Engage platform is the latest in digital marketing technology that determines who might be interested in your property and which features might appeal to them most. It then creates multiple adverts and shares them across social media, targeting the right people with the right message at the right time.
As we all know you can never make a second impression; therefore, we believe the level of presentation of each home we market is imperative. According to Rightmove our clients’ properties are viewed on average more than those marketed by our competitors. This is down to the great care and pride we take to showcase each property with professionally edited photography, combined with technically drawn floor plans. As a result, potential tenants are more likely to be tempted to make a viewing appointment.
Introducing the alternative to a traditional deposit. Moving home is an expensive time for tenants; pulling together money for a deposit, first month’s rent and other associated moving costs can be a real struggle, especially if their previous deposit hasn’t been returned. The Let Alliance Nil Deposit Scheme removes some of these hurdles, providing tenants with a more affordable alternative to the traditional deposit system. In turn this can help to reduce void periods and deal with potential end of tenancy disputes quicker.
We have spent many years building a great reputation and following in the area, with the majority of our business coming from repeat custom or a recommendation. We regularly receive positive feedback and reviews from clients thanking us for our efforts and detailing how our refreshing approach differs to many other agents. These can be seen on Google, allAgents and Facebook.
