Sheffield Lettings Specialist Belvoir! Ends 2009 on High

The city-centre based property management and Sheffield lettings specialist was recently awarded the coveted ‘Gold Franchise of the Year’ title, beating out competition from almost 145 other Belvoir! offices around the country.

Located at 1 Paradise Square, Belvoir! Sheffield was opened three years ago by managing director Rick Flay. The past twelve months have been some of the best ever with record numbers of Sheffield properties let to new tenants. Belvoir! Sheffield’s property portfolio includes 1-4 bedroom houses and apartments across the whole of the city and its surrounds.

With record numbers of property to rent in Sheffield occupied by a Belvoir! tenants, Rick and business partner Sarah Powell are fast becoming names to watch in the Sheffield property market. The duo has seen not just their tenancy agreements but their relationships with local landlords go from strength to strength this year, despite pessimistic headlines announcing the decline of the housing market.

Rick Flay said, "Sheffield is a real property hot spot at the moment with student accommodation for Sheffield university academics booming and perfect buy to let properties in Sheffield’s diverse communities springing up daily. We have enjoyed a phenomenal year with the high point being awarded the Belvoir! Franchise of the year title.

"I’m also particularly proud of our new Sheffield property investors services and the closer links we have built with the hundreds of new landlords who’ve come through our doors since January – the service they have received from our Sheffield property management team at Paradise Square has helped many of them to profit from their buy-to-let properties in a sometimes difficult environment. Our property management, investment and landlord services are almost unrecognisable at the end of 2009 and I predict a similar tail of growth over the course of the next 12 months."

The testimonials of Belvoir! clients underline a year’s worth of success with one investor commenting, "I have a number of properties in various cities in Ireland, UK and Europe and without doubt the service from Belvoir! Sheffield has to be the best ever. I am particularly pleased with the speed in which my apartments were let and the efficiency of the service. I have also recommended Belvoir! to friends with properties in Sheffield."

In recognition of the Belvoir! Sheffield office’s achievements under his guidance, Rick Flay also enjoyed personal success in August when he was appointed an official ambassador for the Make Your Mark campaign. The national initiative was launched to unlock the nation’s enterprise potential and sees the Belvoir! property expert mentoring and supporting budding entrepreneurs.
