Martin & Co Property Lettings in Cambridge has been ranked among the best companies in the East of England in Business Weekly’s New Year Honours 2010, published this month.
The residential lettings and buy-to-let specialist ranked 6th in the publication’s "Service Provider" category, featuring alongside some of the regions biggest and best companies from a range of different industries.
Nick Diggle, Director, and one of 3 local brothers and landlords that own and run Martin & Co in Cambridge, said: It’s a testament to the hard work of the Cambridge lettings team that we have received this coveted accolade. Giving excellent customer service is just one of the ways in which we try to differentiate ourselves from the competition.
Our focus is on going the extra mile, being proactive, and ensuring that our landlords, tenants and buy-to-let investors get value for money and a property lettings service thats second to none!
Cambridge is often described as one of the UKs most promising property investment hotspots, and there is little doubt that this year the local property market will continue to outperform the majority of other regions. As a result it could provide some of the greater opportunities for savvy investors in terms of the potential returns.
Nick comments: In Cambridge, tenant demand from a highly-transient professional and academic population helps to underpin the citys strong rental yields, while factors such as the citys positive economic outlook, many large employers, proximity to London and a range of international transport routes, its small size and massive popularity – all combine to suggest healthy prospects for long-term capital gains..
"2010 will be another exiting year for property lettings in Cambridge and the UK rental market as a whole. We have already seen a lot more buy-to-let investment activity since the start of January, and we expect that to continue in earnest as tenant demand increases this year."
