Letting Agents – Property Management in 2022

Written by Christopher Watkin on - Letting Agent Talk -

Fixflo vs Watkin – a 7 part series on Lettings Industry and Fixflo. This episode talks about Rajeev’s thoughts on what Property Management in the UK’s lettings industry will look like in 2022

Rajeev Nayyar – Managing Director of Fixflo is a former property lawyer – the idea of Fixflo came to him as he was suffering the pain of property repair management as a tenant in New Zealand while managing properties in London. He enjoys long walks on the beach and carries a Fixflo stress ball with him wherever he goes. https://www.fixflo.com

For the Record … The Reason behind these Videos … This series of videos was 100% Commissioned, Filmed and Produced by myself, Christopher Watkin, for my Estate/Letting Agency TV YouTube channel .. I approached Raj, asking to interview him because I had been so impressed with him, his team, his ethos and his work rate.

No moneys, payments or consideration have been made .. I just like Fixflo and Raj is a mate of mine. Fixflo isnt for every letting agent – but it should be seriously considered. He doesn’t pay me any commission to say this – although he bl**dy well should ..LOLS!

Playlist of all 7 videos (which will slowly added to throughout mid March 2018) is here  – https://goo.gl/NLnoFN )

I teach, guide, support, mentor, consult, counsel, partner many hundreds of UK Estate and Letting Agents in their quest to grow their estate and lettings agencies business.

Old school techniques of touting, landlords wanted leaflets, ring us for a free valuation, we have sold this in your street leaflets don't work anymore. There are too many competitor agents .. meaning cheap fees are epidemic, overvaluing is almost a norm to get the stock and don’t even mention about the online/hybrid threat.

So a few years ago, I set about looking around the UK and spotted that certain agents (not many mind you) in certain towns were still seen as the ‘go to person on property’, the person the newspaper editor rang up every week for a comment and I looked at what they did and they were doing some thing quite remarkable…. Only one thing but they were doing it so well .. and reaping the reward in terms of decent listings and decent fees, happy staff, decent sales pipeline and exchange income, managed lettings portfolios in the many hundreds .. but more importantly, they really enjoyed the job… they enjoyed getting up in the morning and people looked up to them

Over 400 agents around the UK are on a mission to change the way our Estate and Lettings agency profession is perceived and looked upon, doing it town by town, city by city. I guide these 400 agents, teach them, mentor them and support them to be seen in a different light, to be seen as the ‘go to person for property’, actually be the ‘local property expert’ and prove it.
