York estate agents launches prime lettings service

AN INDEPENDENT York estate agent has launched a prime lettings service to complement its successful and long-established high-end residential sales business.

The new service from Blenkin & Co focuses on high-value properties within Yorkshire and its surrounds, covering city, country and coast.

The firm, led by managing director Ed Hartshorne, has appointed Jennifer Marsden as the lettings manager. She brings a wealth of experience and contacts to the new venture.

Mr Hartshorne said: “I’m delighted Jennifer has joined Blenkin & Co as we start this exciting new chapter. Our dynamic lettings service represents a milestone for the firm which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

“Jennifer is known for her highly successful approach and has already hit the ground running. Our game plan is to shake-up the lettings industry by raising expectations of service and outcomes.

“Our lettings division will be aligned with our high-end residential sales service, upon which our reputation stands. We are now in a position to provide our high-end clients the flexibility to move between the two sectors. This is already happening with a number of valuations currently booked where clients have requested a co-ordinated sales and lettings evaluation of their property.

“Given the economic turbulence that the UK is currently facing and its impact across the entire industry, this expansion into the lettings sector is proving to be both timely and propitious. We are now in a position to provide our clients with the flexibility to move between the sales and letting sectors, enabling clients to choose the most expedient route.”

Ms Marsden added: “I’m thrilled to join Ed and the team at Blenkin & Co which has established an excellent reputation throughout Yorkshire.

“The new lettings division presents a great opportunity for us to apply the same successful approach to lettings that Ed has developed for the sales business. This includes professional photography, floorplans and video viewings, which will all showcase the lifestyle at a particular property and will create stand-out for our clients, complemented by a best-in-class customer experience.”
