The Letting People, Milton Keynes celebrated its opening with a successful launch attended by a host of well-known local business professionals including Milton Keynes Council Leader, Andrew Geary.
Attended by more than 50 invited guests, the launch of The Letting People, held at the agency’s High Street premises in Stony Stratford, introduced the new organisation to potential landlords, tenants and a range of local faces.
The evening also saw Council Leader Andrew Greary, and David Morris of NatWest Business Banking and Stony Stratford Business Association, deliver speeches on small businesses and the importance of supporting those working in the local community.
Operated by local businessmen Michael Lomax and Philip Rayner, The Letting People specialises in residential lettings and property management.
Michael said: “We’re extremely pleased with how successful the launch event proved to be; it was great to see so many people turn up to hear more about what we have to offer.
“Philip and I come from very different backgrounds and were looking for a business venture which would suit both of our skill sets. Philip had a long career in the construction industry, while my experience lies in marketing and design. We researched The Letting People and agreed that it was a perfect fit.”
Established in Leamington Spa in 2002, The Letting People has recently franchised the business which focuses on helping landlords find the perfect tenant, and tenants find the right property – without the hassle.
Caroline Kempster, founder of The Letting People, added: “We’re an agency with a difference because we’re passionate about keeping our systems as uncomplicated as possible while still providing a professional, personal and trustworthy service.
“Michael and Philip have a great deal of experience in their relevant fields and I’m sure they will be the perfect people to introduce The Letting People to Milton Keynes.”
The Letting People has also shown its support for other organisations in the area, auctioning a bottle of House of Commons wine signed by Prime Minister David Cameron to raise money for local charity, Willen Hospice. The prize, donated by MP for South Milton Keynes Iain Stewart, combined with raffle prizes donated by other local businesses, raised more than £200.
