When interviewed after Dean said..,

"We are very proud and now feel fully established as a lettings business on the Island. When we set up the business originally, our objective was to be different from other agencies. We aim to provide a more personal service to tenants and landlords alike and not have all the hidden costs for our clients. We are also available after hours, which is important to manage the business effectively.

As a family-run business, we all work for each other and bring different skills to the company. We have had a very good year, including picking up one of the Isle of Wight’s biggest building developments, which is fantastic for us. We couldn't be more delighted this evening particularly as it was also my birthday too''.
