The Middlesbrough-based lettings agency has set an ambitious expansion target of reaching 500 properties over the next three years.
Having been made a partner at Middlesbrough-based Hunters, after doubling their client base in just 12 months, Senior Lettings Manager Georgina Evans says the business is determined to take advantage of what she describes as “amazing market conditions” for home rentals.
“The sky’s the limit,” said a delighted Georgina, who was raised in Eaglescliffe and has always lived in the north-east. “I’m 100% focused on creating a truly landlord-friendly lettings business of over 500 properties over the next three years.
“That will be a real challenge but that’s what I want and I think it’s achievable. It’s boom time for lettings at present.”
Georgina, 34, who joined Hunters little more than a year ago in September 2010 after eight years at Gowland White, added: “Hunters have been rewarded for the faith they displayed in me. Being made a partner means everything to me.”
The national network’s most northerly franchise, the Borough Road-based lettings agency now boasts properties in Wynyard to the north of the region, Darlington to the west, Saltburn to the east and Great Ayton to the south, together with many throughout Middlesbrough and Stockton.
Ian Paterson, Hunters’ senior partner, said: “Becoming a partner in the business is deserved recognition for Georgina.
“With her single-minded determination and commitment to getting the job done right every time, she has built up an outstanding reputation for reliability and productivity among our clients. They know they can depend on her 100%.
“As any landlord will know, it’s inevitable that things don’t always run as smoothly as you would like, but our clients know that Georgina will always sort out any problems quickly and calmly.
“She has been a blessing for Hunters and our landlords. Because of her, we don’t lose landlords and we are gaining more every week. The lettings business is buoyant, but to double the number of properties in 12 months is a tremendous achievement. The challenge now is to attract many more clients.”
