Opening Doors for Ten Years!
It started as a simple dream – 10 years ago mother and daughter duo Liz & Jill were determined to make letting properties easier – to offer the highest quality of service at the best price available. 10 years later and the dream is now touching hundreds of landlords and tenants & continues to grow strong.
Perthshire Property Services, a local rental agency, is celebrating their 10 year anniversary this October. This milestone comes on the heels of Liz’s retirement and the company currently managing over 330 properties on their books.
The partnership began in 2004 when Jill finished University and was to decide her career path. Having an honours degree in Marketing and Human Resource Management a career in business was something that appealed to her. She was offered various jobs but nothing that inspired or appealed to her. Liz was already involved in a successful business she ran with her husband Graham but was also looking after their portfolio of rental properties alongside a couple of other properties for friends. During her time at University Jill bought her own flat and began renting out the spare rooms. Liz and Jill, both with knowledge and experience of the sector decided that Perth didn’t have a quality Letting Agency and so in October 2004 Perthshire Property Services was born. They would offer a high quality, affordable service where each property would be treated like their own.
Over the years Perthshire Property Services has never lost this vision and has grown in all ways – Landlords, Tenants, Properties and Staff. In 2010 Jen Campbell joined the business, bringing with her a background in Court Law. In 2013 Jen was promoted to Senior Lettings Negotiator. In 2011 Julie Gilmore began with the company carrying out digital scanning & administration. In 2012 the business employed Fiona Browne who had previously been involved in Short Term & Holiday Letting. With a background in Social Housing, in 2013, Ashleigh McIntosh joined the company.
Liz and Jill continue to grow their own portfolio of properties alongside the business, as its what they know and do best. The main ingredient that has fuelled the success of Perthshire Property Services has never changed and they have never strayed from their vision. Heres to the next 10 years!
