The HMO Letting Agent Sunderland
I am Vikki Marie Bond, an experienced Letting Agent now specialising in HMOs
I began letting and managing property in 2005 and in 2010 I invested in my education to keep updated with the ever-changing legislation and since then, I have continued to maintain my continual professional development each year.
I started my property career in 1999, working within a busy estate agents office. Then I worked in a property building and maintenance company until I moved to a plumbing merchant.
However, in 2005 I returned to the property market full time to focus on letting and managing a portfolio of student properties. I was determined to be successful which was demonstrated by the fact that the whole property portfolio would be let before the forthcoming year.
I have had a long career in property and have been involved in all areas of property rental including some experience of serviced accommodation units.
During 2010 I built up a new portfolio of residential family lets and began to realise just how much I enjoyed the challenges of working within the property marketplace.
As the student numbers in Sunderland steadily declined over the next five years, I worked with my landlords and steadily converted all the student HMO properties into room lets for working professionals and contractors. This preserved the income for the landlords and maintained their cash flow.
I quickly realised that out of all areas of letting properties I was enjoying this challenge the most. So whilst other Letting Agents were concentrating on their residential lettings, I created two specialist businesses ‘Rooms 2 Let Sunderland’ and ‘Rooms 2 Let Durham’.
I am now planning to expand by recruiting a confident manager/team to help me develop
‘Rooms 2 Let South Shields’ and ‘Rooms 2 Let Newcastle’
As well as managing and letting HMO properties in Sunderland and Durham I also help landlords with their own HMO Properties by bringing them up to date to comply with current legislation.
I have my own team including a maintenance manager and a fire safety officer who keep everything in order. Our aim is to provide an excellent standard of accommodation for tenants who want to rent rooms fully inclusive of all bills with the highest standards of safety and security.
