It’s a positive start to 2011 for Mayfair Office members Mishon Mackay in Brighton, Susses with a newly expanded lettings team and the opening of their Lewes Road office
Following the much publicised difficulties in the property market, it is refreshing to see Mishon Mackay, one of Sussex’s leading independent agents, expanding their network across the city. Their new Lewes Road office, opening on Saturday 12 February 2011, is well placed to cover the northeast corner of Brighton, where they have seen a tremendous uplift in enquiries for both lettings and sales.
“We have been interested in having a Lewes Road office for some while and it is with confidence that we extend our network following a busy end to 2010,” says Glenn Mishon. “Our lettings business has gone from strength to strength, and with a good number of our landlords holding investments which particularly target the student market, it was an obvious expansion for us.
We also intend to expand our residential sales arm, creating an even better environment for our clients with our cross-city selling approach.”
Established in 1987, Mishon Mackay has been a cornerstone of the Brighton and Hove property market with partners Glenn Mishon and Alex Mackay still leading their sales force nearly 25 years later. With offices in Hove, central Brighton, Kemp Town, Lewes Road and Hurstpierpoint, they offer a strong network, providing their clients with an excellent service both in terms of marketing and sales achieved.
“We saw exceptional results during 2010 in our lettings business and this was the deciding factor in opening the Lewes Road office” says Alex. “We desperately needed to expand our lettings team to enable us to fulfil our obligations to our landlords and continue with the extremely high level of service we have become renowned for.
We are now able to offer lettings via five different locations, and with our cross-city lettings policy our clients can be assured of a fast let and a management service second to none. Whether you have a substantial home in Shirley Drive or a studio flat in Bear Road, you will only deal with an experienced agent who will not only have access to their local office but also to our network.”
In order to maintain this level of service, Alex Evans has been recruited to work with the existing lettings team of Talitha Setz, Lucy Parry, Jordan Mackay and Danielle Warne.
“We are all really excited about the opportunity that this expansion of our lettings business will create” says Talitha. “My team and I are really busy with all types of property across the city, and I expect to double my business activity this year with the help of my fantastic team and our managing director, Alex Mackay.”
As with residential sales, the lettings business has been magnificently supported by The Mayfair Office, generating a number of good leads every week from London applicants looking to move to our city.
“Our connection with The Mayfair Office goes from strength to strength encapsulated last year with an award, presented at the annual Mayfair Office conference, in recognition of our efforts in attaining coverage in the national press,” says Alex. “We were particularly pleased with our success as we were against 310 national agents wanting to scoop this prize.”
“No-one has a crystal ball in our business but it remains evident that lettings have proved to be a core element of the property market in our city,” says Glenn. “Residential sales seem to be returning strongly but this has not affected the vibrant nature of our lettings business. We will continue to support and expand lettings into other offices we open.”
