Property History

2015 July

  • We noticed the property was available to rent and sent the owners a letter telling about our concept.
  • We met with Thomas at the property for a valuation.
  • Within 24 hours of the valuation we sent a formal email offering to rent the property directly from him on a 5 years contract.
  • Thomas asked us to come back a second time to explain the business concept to Christel.
  • Christel and Thomas considered the offer and said yes. Contract was signed.
  • We helped to organise the cleaning of the house because we knew the owners were busy preparing their relocation to Singapore.
  • We sent photos of the finished house to Christel and Thomas; they were really pleased.
  • Within the same month, professional tenants moved in and made the house their home. All tenants have been living there ever since.
