Lenwell was acquired by the Leaders Romans Group during 2020, which was great news for existing clients who could access additional services and benefits, including their properties being listed on the UK's No.1 property portal, Rightmove.
As of February 2021, Lenwell’s branches have all now been rebranded to Leaders to match their sister company in the surrounding area. This will give Lenwell's existing landlords even more benefits as their available properties will now be marketed on leaders.co.uk which attracts national coverage. This is great timing for landlords as recent property trends have shown a move towards working from home and many people moving away from bigger cities.
Peter Moate, Regional Lettings Director at Leaders, said, “I am delighted that since the acquisition of Lenwell last year we have gained more than 40 expert staff members. Following the rebrand to Leaders, I would like to reassure these landlords that all the staff they know and love from Lenwell, will still be looking after their properties.
“However they can now benefit from Leaders’ online presence as our website gets large volumes of traffic daily and properties available to rent are also marketed through Rightmove. Any properties being listed for let in the future will be seen by a much larger group of prospective tenants in the area.”
Lenwell’s former owner, Rob Wellstead, said, “I am very happy I have found a great company to take care of my business and staff in the future. We have achieved a great deal over the past 30 years, and it’s been an absolute privilege leading such an amazing group of people. Lenwell has been part of my family for all of my adult life – if I had my time again, I wouldn’t change a single thing.”
