“We purchased our investment property, Viridian Apartments, with Black Brick as our buying agent. Upon completion, we had the task of redecorating the property and finding a tenant. After reviewing the proposals from other reputable agents with prominent offices in Battersea, we decided to strengthen our relationship with Black Brick and appointed them as our managing agents.
Though other agents were offering lower commissions, we decided that as overseas landlords, our property and our tenant would be better looked after by an agent who would be more personally involved. Sophie Amasha is extremely efficient, knowledgeable, hardworking and has a delightful personality. The redecoration and furnishing was completed in a timely manner and done efficiently and to a high standard, due to the great relationship that Black Brick and Sophie have with their service providers and the close supervision that they undertake.
Sophie’s guidance was invaluable in promptly finding a professional couple as our tenants, and negotiating the lease and rental. This was done in the week before Christmas, when everyone else would have been preoccupied with the festivities, and deferred the property to January’s listing! I am pleased to say that we made the right decision, and I believe that our tenants are extremely happy with the service that they receive whenever there is an issue with the property.”
