The Directors of Easylet are Rochelle Hawes and Sandra Herbert who are the original owners since the company started in January 1993.
The Directors worked together prior to the launch of Easylet at another local Worthing Letting Agency. When they both left that company, within a few months of each other, they decided there was a gap in the industry and a new approach was needed in the lettings market which did not previously exist locally. With their combined experience in Residential Lettings and Sandra’s additional 10 years in Estate Agency, they were well placed to launch a new company - Easylet
Initially Easylet started small, operating from a home work station, offering free lettings advice and a legal documentation provision service to private landlords. Within a year the business took off and it was important to find new premises to meet the growing demand. They found a local estate agent, who had no lettings department and therefore it was an ideal stepping stone for Easylet. Lettings being a complementary independent service offered within the estate agency, benefiting both companies. Easylet was able to branch out into new areas like Shoreham and enjoyed the referral relationship that continued for a few years.
Not only was there a demand for legal documentation but also for introduction of tenants, property viewings and inventories. Easylet also started to manage a block of flats for a large building company in one of Worthing's most prestigious seafront blocks. This was a great boost and took Easylet in a new direction of increased services and full management. As the business became more prominent in the local area, it became essential to find private professional premises to meet personally with both tenants and landlords.
In 1994 Easylet opened its first independent office in Broadwater and started to employ additional staff. We remained in these first floor premises for the next 3 years. As the business expanded, it became essential for larger ground floor shop premises with easy access and window frontage for property display. Hence Easylet moved into the Tarring Branch in September 1997.
Since then, more staff have been employed, increased levels of services are offered including longer opening hours and an out of hours pager service.
Expansion was considered and April 2004 brought the launch of our second branch in Lancing. Easylet found that we could offer a better continuity and personal care to our clients by keeping all departments, staff and property files under one roof, in Tarring. Therefore, after 5 years and losing the office manager to retirement, it was decided that we should close this branch.
January 2008 saw Easylet become Easylet Letting Agents Ltd and Sandra and Rochelle became Directors rather than Partners.
June 2014 saw Easylet make considerable investment into launching a new company image, new courtesy viewing car, computer improvements and vastly upgrading the existing website www.easyletsussex.co.uk. See our business Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Easyletlettingagentsltd/
The Directors are firm believers in not running before they can walk and only making changes if it benefits tenants and Landlords with the levels of services provided. Expansion, image updates or any company purchases have only taken place when the time is right. Unlike many other agencies, borrowing funds in order to appear successful is not our ethos. Success speaks for itself and in our third decade in business Easylet is still going strong, expanding, upgrading, employing and regularly investing in training of staff with the aim of constantly improving the company and services offered.
Easylet remains to this day an independent residential letting specialist.
