Leaders brings specialist property service to Oxford

Wed 15 Oct 2014

Independent property specialist Leaders has brought its expert lettings, property management, sales and buy-to-let service to Oxford, following its recent acquisition of QB Management in Headington.

Leaders is a long-established firm known for its knowledge, experience and rigorous standards within the property industry. As members of ARLA, SAFEagent and The Property Ombudsman, the company adheres to a strict code of conduct providing complete peace of mind for all its customers.

QB Management was established for more than 20 years before joining Leaders and became one of Oxford's premier letting agents. Like Leaders, its reputation has been built on high-quality service and supreme knowledge and expertise.

All the original team has remained with the business providing a continuity of care to their clients under the Leaders banner.

Leaders’ Area Manager, Jim Browning, says: “We are delighted to be introducing our specialist services to customers in Oxford and extend a warm welcome to our new landlords and tenants here.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome the QB Management team to Leaders, they have a fantastic knowledge of the local property market and I know our clients will be reassured that they are remaining with the business.

“We recognise that successful letting depends on a good long-term relationship between landlords, tenants and agent which is something we work hard to cultivate. We look forward to being of service to our new clients and to building the same excellent reputation here as we enjoy across our branch network.”

Branch Manager Philip Smithson, said: “We are excited to be a part of Leaders and to be launching the Leaders name and brand here in Oxford.

“Leaders is known for pioneering best practice in letting and property management; its founder Neville Lee was also the co-founder of ARLA and he was passionate about raising standards in the lettings industry, which he achieved through his work with both ARLA and Leaders. 30 years on, his son-in-law Paul Weller runs Leaders with the same high standards.

“As QB Management, we always provided a very personal, high quality service to our clients. Now, as part of a larger company, we can improve our service even further, giving our clients much wider coverage through our marketing and branch network and the peace of mind that comes with dealing with a solid, well-established company.

“We are fully supported by Leaders who have dedicated head office staff specialising in client accounting, IT, marketing, training, legal compliance and HR. This means that my team and I are able to focus on what we do best – looking after our clients and properties here in Oxford with a personal touch and no distractions.”

A warm welcome awaits everyone who visits Leaders, where the full-time team are on hand six days a week to customers with all their enquiries – however big or small - before, during and after their tenancies.

Strong demand for all types of property makes Oxford a great place for buy-to-let investment at the moment. In particular, flats and two-bedroom houses are being snapped up by eager tenants at a rapid rate.
