Somerset Estates is a bespoke property management service with a difference. Our biggest asset is our personal and trusted service and experience in the complexities of managing property.
Welcome to the first edition of the Somerset Estates newsletter. We hope you’re all keeping safe and well, and were not too affected by the second national lockdown.
Over the past few months, and just like many other businesses in lockdown, we developed our new website that was launched last year. We did this by adding additional pages to showcase all our services from arranging maintenance and producing expenditure forecasts for client accounts, to providing concierge services and arranging insurances.
2020 has been a roller coaster of a year but it has also opened up opportunities for us, such an increase in enquiries for our vacant management service, which is designed for international clients with residential property in London and surrounding areas that remain unoccupied for part of the year. It can be stressful looking after property particularly when based internationally: after all who will be on call if there has been a leak, or to pay the bills, or oversee any scheduled works and ensure that everything is perfect upon returning to London?
We’re really passionate about looking after vacant property and have experience in resolving a wide range of emergencies and complex building issues such as floods, alarms going off in the middle of the night and major electrical damages.
Our background into luxury property management has been an interesting journey that started in 2012 through our sister company, Somerset Consult (a firm of Chartered Surveyors). Our knowledge in construction and property management means that we’re able to understand the complexities involved in prime residential properties.
We are also able to undertake a large scope of services using staff from both Somerset companies, ranging from maintenance issues to reviewing contractors’ costs and managing works. We have highly experienced staff and consultants including building surveyors, quantity surveyors, engineers and client managers.
Most of you would have met some of our dedicated team, such as Rachel, who delivers a highly personalised service built on our core values – namely quality, trust and transparency.
We’re very excited to welcome to the team, Barry Breed, who has a wealth of experience delivering bespoke and super-prime construction services on behalf of private clients.
In our bi-monthly newsletters, we’ll bring you a mix of property news, high-end topical content pieces and collaboration articles with trusted partners.
We hope you enjoy the first edition.
We take care of every part of an estate, property, home and residential building, whether occupied or vacant, to maintain, protect and improve prime residencies.
