Growth at Livingroom with appointment of new lettings negotiator

Friday, 24 July 2020

Lockdown was of course a highly emotional time. One of the consequences of the period is that a lot of islanders seem to be evaluating their priorities and working out what makes them happy. At Livingroom this has translated to an incredibly active market in both sales and rentals.

In the lettings market, Jersey has a range of options from apartments up to luxury family homes, this variety contributes to the popularity of the option. Renting has already seen a global increase, but the lockdown has caused a growing number of people to explore this option.

In response to the busy market we’ve expanded our lettings team with the appointment of Charlotte Huish.

As a lettings negotiator, Charlotte is responsible for market appraisals, viewings and communicating with landlords and tenants at every step of the process. Her communication skills and understanding of Jersey life means she’s the perfect employee to work with local tenants and those who are new to calling Jersey home.

Charlotte is a well-known face in the Jersey business community having spent several years in advertising and marketing roles with the local paper – the Jersey Evening Post – and the Jersey Reds rugby club. During her time with the paper, Charlotte used her longstanding interest in property to work on the Homelife supplement – a role which created an enviable book of contacts in the property world.

Charlotte joins Clare Timlin in the Livingroom Jersey lettings team. Clare has more than a decade of estate agency experience in the island and has been handling the busy sector for Livingroom since we became the Channel Island Estate Agent and launched in Jersey.

Clare gave us an insight into the market at the moment: “Charlotte’s arrival couldn’t be better timed as the market has really bounced back from lockdown with a bang. For some, the lockdown experience has made living independently more appealing, others are looking to the lettings market to find a temporary solution while they seek a longer-term home but aren’t in a rush to make the permanent move.

“Whatever the reason, the market is busy and so are we. No matter the quantity of work we are experiencing, we always take the time to understand a client’s requirements to find them the property that’s right for them - that’s the Livingroom ethos and the very reason why it has never been a better time to expand our offering.”

In a dynamic market, the ability to move swiftly and consider clients’ demands is absolutely pivotal and Clare and Charlotte have the experience and knowledge to make the lettings process a smooth one. Get in touch with them to find out how they can help your search.
