Letting specialist Leaders were delighted to present their loyal Portsmouth Property Inspector, John Williams, with a bottle of champagne, a bouquet of flowers and a cheque to celebrate his 20 years’ service.
“Many congratulations to John on his very commendable 20 years service,” said Leaders’ Hampshire Director, Matt Derry. “John plays a key role in assisting our Property Managers in looking after our landlords’ properties and ensuring everything runs smoothly from the beginning of the tenancy to the end.
“After 20 years he is a true expert in preparing the all-important inventory and schedule of condition; inspecting and reporting on the condition of our landlords’ properties during tenancies; and checking our tenants out at the end of their tenancy. This requires meticulousness, integrity, experience, professionalism and a keen eye for detail, all of which John – who used to be in the Royal Navy - possesses in abundance.
“John is a very popular and adaptable member of staff who has an abundance of experience which is of great benefit to our team and clients. There is nothing John hasn’t seen or dealt with as a Property Inspector over the last 20 years! John enjoys the variety of his job and meeting people from all walks of life. He is a great asset to Leaders and we thank him for his many years dedicated service.”
In today’s world, 20 years with one company is unusual, but at Leaders big anniversaries are not uncommon. John is one of 95 Leaders employees with more than a decade’s service. Across the company, there are more than 250 who have been with Leaders for 5 or more years, many of them with 15 or more years’ service.
Says Matt, who has himself notched up more 18 years with Leaders: “Experience and knowledge are fundamental to providing an exceptional service in lettings, which is a very specialist field, subject to complex landlord and tenant law and many rules and regulations. With 30 years experience as a company - and so many highly experienced individual employees – we are proud to stand out from our competitors as by far the most experienced and knowledgeable letting agent in the area.”
Leaders report that demand for rented property in Portsmouth is exceptionally high - with good quality flats and houses being quickly snapped up by waiting tenants. As members of ARLA, SAFEagent and The Property Ombudsman, Leaders provide a trustworthy service and impartial, expert advice on all aspects of residential lettings – from choosing a property to let and accurate rental valuations to complying with lettings legislation and ongoing tenancy management.
