Stephen, Oxfordshire, 2-branch agent

“When the Tenant Fee Ban was announced, we were worried that the drop in income would lead to a drop in service levels. With landlords leaving the market, as well as increasing competition, we needed to consider our options.

Having now worked with ARPM for the last 18 months, I can honestly say that outsourcing was a great option for us and proved the right move.

My team is now able to focus on valuations/viewings while ARPM take care of the admin tasks and property management on our behalf, and white-labelled to our business too.

As a result, we have grown our lettings book despite the tricky market conditions and my costs are the lowest they have been in years. I am very happy.”
