Friday 27 January 2006 was just another day for Research Fellow Dr Anthony Murphy, but as luck would have it, this was to be a day that would change his life.
Tired of the hassle associated with trying to let his property and amidst the empty promises made by his first letting agent, Dr Murphy decided enough was enough. "The house had been empty for a while and I had instructed the original agents to carry out some maintenance and simple improvements in preparation for new tenants," he says. "To cut a long story short, very little got done. I was aware that time was ticking on, the property was still in no condition to be marketed and I was still a long way off receiving any income from it."
As a busy academic, Dr Murphy had no time to manage the property himself and after the frustrations of having to dis–instruct an agent, was wary about trying another. But his worries were unfounded. On 27 January his luck changed. This was the day he first met scottfraser Lettings Manager, Hannah Bailey.
"Unfortunately, Dr Murphy’s predicament is not an uncommon one," says Hannah. "Providing an efficient and professional service is key to the reputation of the scottfraser name and unsurprisingly this seems to provide us with a keen edge over the competition time and time again.
Dr Murphy’s needs were clear and simple. After an initial assessment we were able to organise a team to complete the unfinished work, furnish the property and overhaul the gardens. The result – no more frustration for the landlord and, more importantly, a property that was quickly let to suitable tenants.
Dr Murphy concludes: "I am very impressed and pleased with the scottfraser lettings service. Hannah turned my life as a landlord around. Scottfraser are extremely professional, hardworking and knowledgeable and I thank them for eliminating the hassle and uncertainty of letting my property."
