Humberts, the country agency which raised eyebrows earlier this year by announcing it was to open an office in prime central London, has now appointed a lettings manager to join its sales team at the heart of the capital.
Sam Wright will be the lettings manager in the Mayfair branch of Humberts, having previously held a similar post in Kensington for Harrods Estates.
“This is the second time I have overseen the launch of a new lettings department and I am very excited to manage and expand Humberts Mayfair’s lettings portfolio as well as deliver exceptional services to landlords and tenants” says Wright.
David Adams - the former John Taylor London agency chief who became director at Humberts Mayfair in the spring - says: “We have seen a large increase in enquiries for both short and long term rentals from people moving here from abroad as a result of the favourable currency. There’s also been a rise in demand from investors looking for buy to lets.”
Humberts’ lettings operations across its London and country network consists of a traditional offering (called Humberts Lettings), available in current branch locations, and online (Humberts Lettings Direct), accessible nationwide, allowing landlords to rent out their properties solely online.
