Who are you and what does it say on your business card?

Sales & Marketing Director

What is Glide and what does it do?


Glide are a white labelled energy provider who exist to make managing utilities simple and easy for Tenants, Landlords and Letting agents. We have bespoke systems and teams that help in consolidating all services into one straightforward bill. This removes the hassle of dealing with multiple suppliers and worrying about unpaid bills. We split the liability amongst the tenants which is key in the current economic climate.

What services do you offer and in what ways do you work with estate and letting agents?

We give a utility package option to shared tenancies. It’s done via a lead generation model, where we do all of the hard work. With the current energy crisis, bill splitting and shared liability is becoming a more critical service to offer tenants.

What makes your product different and how does it benefit agents?

Glide enables landlords to offer a simple solution to bills-inclusive rent through bundled utilities and service packages where agents can receive a single itemized monthly bill for their portfolio of properties, cutting admin and attracting more tenants. Glide provides everything needed in a household including: Gas, Electricity, Water, Telephone, Unlimited Broadband and TV Licence.

Alternatively, Glide are able to bill individual tenants directly so that responsibility is shared amongst housemates and landlords receive commissions for the referrals.

What advice would you give to Estate Agents & Letting Agents during the current energy crisis?

Acceptance is key! Energy is going to cost more, it’s important we understand and accept this. Once the SVT catches up with the wholesale pricing then its about fixing yourself in with a stable provider and product. Just because someone is the cheapest, it doesn’t mean they are sustainable in the energy space, just look at what happened in Autumn ’21 with so many energy companies going out of business.

What is the most satisfying part of your job?

Meeting new people and constructing new commercial deals.

What do you see as the biggest challenge facing estate and letting agents at the moment?

Classic supply vs demand issue. There isn’t enough stock therefore making all aspects of property transitions more intense and difficult.

What is your property prediction for the remainder of 2022?

The market has to stabilize, if not decline slightly. We are not going into a boom, we are heading into more challenging times with the rising cost of living etc. The housing market needs to reflect this and settle down.

Country house or city apartment?

Country house

Trendy roof terrace or traditional English garden?

English Garden

Would you rather be a free-moving tenant or settled owner occupier?

Settled owner occupier

What is your favourite room in your home?


Homes under the Hammer or Location, Location, Location?

That’s the million dollar question, as much as I used to love homes under the hammer in the good old student days…. Kirsty and Phil take it for me. I love looking at houses and what people can buy, it takes me back to my days as an estate agent.
