Taj goes into more detail about what he and his staff work towards, on top of providing excellent customer service. “All of our staff understand how important it is to pick the right partner when it comes to selling or renting a home, and the Derby property market allows us to help each and every one of our vendors, buyers and landlords reach their property ambitions. Each member of our team possesses various amounts of experience, and guide the client through the selling and letting process from start to finish. We offer a variety of services for lettings including fully managed lettings, as well as finding tenants for landlords, plus, in regard to selling, we use traditional methods as well as embracing the internet whole heartedly.” What makes the business stand out is its customer service, as Taj already alluded to. However, this comes about from an excellent internal culture and he explains what he takes to cultivate a fun and happy working environment. Staff do not compete against each other leaving them to only have the best interests of the client at heart, something Taj is keen to point out. “Embedded in the company culture is our team ethos, and everyone is supportive of each other, making sure we go the extra mile for clients. We do not let anyone slack, and employees eventually learn to stand on their own feet and provide the best service possible. We are aware other agents operate with a structure where their employees are competing with each other due to commission targets, however we believe this takes the focus off the landlord’s interests. We work together collectively to ensure we are a strong unit and competing only with outside competitors.” Giving us an overview of the real estate industry within the region, Taj remarks that the Derby market is like no other, and is very competitive. He notes that the wider East Midlands however has seen a rise in house prices, and this is good as it increases the chances of potential investors looking for yield on investment or long term growth.
