Next generation letting agency Accommodation.co.uk has announced that former Purplebricks academy director Michael Booth has joined the growing team.
In his new role, Booth will be helping to recruit and train licensed business partners – known as Local Lettings Consultants – alongside former Belvoir business development manager Clive Tomlinson, who has over 30 years of lettings experience.
Booth said: “Accommodation.co.uk’s mission to become the most loved lettings agency in the UK by delivering an outstanding service to landlords and tenants really appealed to me. The industry has long needed change and I firmly believe that we will be the ones to do it.
“Well-known lettings agencies have focused too much on being online, neglecting to remember that what landlords and Generation Rent really want is efficiency, customer service and a high level of professionalism.”
He added: “Letting out your home or finding a new place to live is a huge decision, so we want to be there to support tenants and landlords alike. Our bespoke service and round-the-clock centralised teams will enable our Local Lettings Consultants to do just that.”
Alongside Booth, The first Purplebricks lettings territory owner in Scotland, Julie Findlater, has also moved from the agency to become a property manager at Accommodation.co.uk.
She has 15 years of experience in the lettings sector and will bring her expertise and knowledge of the industry to support landlords and tenants across the UK.
Aaron Short, co-founder of Accommodation.co.uk, said: “We’re passionate about building teams of highly experienced and skilled property, IT and marketing professionals so I’m really pleased with the team that we’re building.
“We’ve steadily built a backend team at Accommodation.co.uk based on the best talent, and now that we’ve launched it’s crucial that we continue to make the very best hires. We moved to Manchester for this very reason and so far, it’s proving to be one of our best decisions! We look forward to welcoming more people to the family in the near future.”
