£100m property milestone is perfect gift

A West Midlands estate agent is celebrating a big ‘lettings’ anniversary in style by announcing it now has more than £100m of properties in its portfolio.

Berriman Eaton, which has offices in Wombourne, Tettenhall and Bridgnorth, launched its dedicated lettings service 15 years ago and has seen rapid growth in recent years thanks to its focus on marketing, local knowledge and personal service.

It now manages more than 320 different properties across the region, ranging from studio flats to country estates, and has recorded a 15% increase in appointments since the end of the first lockdown.

A new apprentice has been recruited to support the four-strong team and help with long-term relationships with investors, business executives looking for short-term rentals and high-profile sportsmen and sportswomen.

“We’ve grown from about 40 properties in 2006 to being responsible for a £100million-strong portfolio, which is a great way to celebrate 15 years of Berriman Eaton,” said Andy Roberts, managing director and the driving force behind this side of the business.

“Our main role is to manage properties for landlords, ranging from sourcing tenants and agreeing the marketing mix, to overseeing all 150 pieces of legislation and an ongoing management service to include collecting payments, repairs and maintenance.

“The key driver behind our growth is an understanding of the region's property market and ensuring both the tenant and the owner receive a service that takes the stress out of the whole process. We are now one of the largest operators in the area and are always looking to build on this platform by seeking more properties going forward.”

The last 18 months have been a very difficult time for the lettings sector, with the 2019 tenant fee ban, constantly changing legislation and multiple issues created by an unexpected pandemic. Berriman Eaton, with the backing of its successful estate agent business and owners Nick Berriman and Caroline Eaton, has overcome all of these challenges to post impressive growth and maximise an increase in demand for renting.
