Sandwich: Carl Rose, Sales Manager
April saw the arrival of not just some sunshine and warmth; Carl Rose has also joined our Sandwich office as our new sales manager.
He’s on a mission to raise awareness of the Finn’s name across the Sandwich market. If you keep your eyes peeled, you may have already spotted him and the team around town on valuations, viewings and marketing appointments.
Carl started working in estate agency in 2000, and has experience of working across East Kent covering all aspects of residential sales from coastal apartments to country homes.
He is a very friendly, outgoing individual who is very enthusiastic in selling your home - so we think he’s going to fit in well with Demi and Dylan who are already well known faces in the town.
“Buyers are moving quickly for every type of property in the Sandwich area,” says Carl. “It means that vendors are receiving prompt genuine interest for every property that’s on the market at the right price. With such an engaged market, I’m especially pleased that the Finn’s approach means I can look after vendors and buyers from the start and right through to successful completion."

Canterbury: Old and New
The market is moving just as quickly around Canterbury. A recent instruction for a three bedroom terraced home on The Close in Bridge, sold within days of going on the market.
Fortunately, our Canterbury team are already flexing their property marketing skills with some more new instructions:
“Over in Wingham, we are marketing a spacious, contemporary, barn style home,” explains Paul Robertson. "It’s a great property - with no less than four bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as a large living/dining/kitchen room. There’s even some woodland in addition to a good sized garden.”
“Someone looking a comfortable home with an historic character, though, might be more interested in our latest instruction on Ivy Lane in the heart of Canterbury.”
The Grade II Listed cottage on Ivy Lane dates back to the 16th century. Inside, it’s been comprehensively updated to create a calm and cosy retreat in the city. The vendors have retained the character of the inglenook fireplace and some exposed beams. At the same time, they have also created great storage solutions and a stylish kitchen.

Lettings: Even premium lettings are fast to let.
In April, our Canterbury lettings team began marketing an exceptional five bedroom home. Discretely located in the heart of the City, The Masters Lodge, offered potential tenants a very special house and home.
We marketed at £3,995 ppm which was significantly above the asking price of more typical Canterbury rental levels.
Our lettings team profiled the kind of tenants we anticipated would be most interested in this type of rental home. And then they went out to the market - and found them.
We found the new tenants of The Masters Lodge within weeks of going on the market and moved swiftly on to referencing and tenancy agreements.
It’s a letting that demonstrates how our lettings team has the expertise and market knowledge to market and manage all kinds of rental assets.

Lettings: The gifts of great landlords and tenants
I think our Lettings team in Sandwich has been keeping this on the ‘downlow’… but it turns out that receiving thank you gifts from landlords and tenants is a relatively frequent event.
This lovely bouquet were sent by a happy Landlord to say thank you for a job well done. Everyone in our lettings team works hard - but that's not to say thank you's aren't appreciated along the way!
Our team gets to know each property extremely well - which is great for landlords who value our advice on maintaining both the value and the income from their property assets.
We even have repeat tenants who prefer to let properties that are managed by Finn’s - because they like the way we communicate, listen and respond to their needs.
The gift box of teatime treats arrived from tenants who we delighted to move into their new rental home. It brings a whole new meaning to great tenants when they take the time and trouble to say thank you to our letting agents.
If you’ve ever thought that being a landlord sounds stressful or challenging, we highly recommend talking to our team. They can guide you through the necessary preparations and problem solve any obstacles on the way.
Essentially, they have so much valuable experience and can be the best choice of letting agent for any residential property in Kent that you are thinking of letting.

- effective management of ingoing and outgoing tenancies in order to maintain property value with minimal void periods
