Why choose Sarah Kenny Residential Lettings to let and/or manage your property?

We are highly-experienced, professional, tenacious and customer-focussed.

As a landlord, you want your property to be let for the maximum rent achievable, occupied by high-quality tenants who respect their home and pay the rent on time, with minimal void periods between tenancies.

If your property is agency-managed, you want to entrust its care and maintenance to a reliable team who visit the property regularly, know the tenants and provide easily accessible, professional support seven days a week.

Sarah Kenny Residential Lettings has been operating successfully in Bristol for thirty years and we have worked hard to build a reputation for providing a first-class service to our clients. Many of our landlords have been with us for a long time and new landlords often come to us through a recommendation.

Based together in one central office in Clifton, every member of our team is a specialist in their own field and we work seamlessly together to ensure that our clients receive the very best service.

As we specialise in lettings within the Bristol area, we have none of the distractions of an estate agency. Our highly experienced team of lettings managers, negotiators, property managers, tenancy co-ordinators and accounts professionals are able to focus entirely on our clients and their properties.

For your added peace of mind, we are also ARLA registered and a member of the Property Ombudsman.

Our promise to you for managed properties...

  • Our fees will remain transparent, with no hidden extras.

Effective marketing

Using an effective mix of marketing channels including online, print and social media, we market properties with high-quality tenants in mind. We know from experience that targeted marketing using beautiful images of your property alongside a professionally crafted description that brings the property to life, will attract high-quality tenants.

We recommend placing your property on the market 4-6 weeks (where possible) before the target move-in date.

Unlike other agents, we offer viewings seven days a week and every viewing is hosted by an experienced member of our team.

We have worked closely with major companies and relocation agents within Bristol for many years and we are the preferred supplier for several of Bristol’s flagship companies, helping to relocate senior employees into accommodation that meets a particular brief.

“As a top-class employee relocation company, we prefer working with the very best letting agents. Sarah Kenny Residential Lettings is reliable, flexible and has a great portfolio of properties, but most importantly, they go the extra mile to make our ‘Home Searches’ even more special for our clients.” Catherine Thomas, HCR Group

Pricing structure

Our pricing structure is extremely competitive, with no hidden extras.

We offer our clients two distinct services to accurately meet your requirements: ‘Let-only’ and ‘Let plus Complete Property Management’. Whichever service you require, our experienced team will go above and beyond to ensure that your experience of working with us is second-to-none.

Property refurbishment

Our property refurbishment service has been specifically designed to maximise rental return for our landlords. A comparatively small investment to upgrade influential features can reap dividends for several decades, as you attract high quality tenants who are willing to pay a premium rental price for a premium property.

If your property could be working harder for you, take a look at our property refurbishment brochure to find out how our experienced team can help.
