Haus Party’s to celebrate first Birthday
South West London property agency, Haus Properties, is celebrating a successful first year having burst onto the estate agency scene in Fulham in November 2011 causing a storm with its quirky marketing style, community support and sense of fun – not to mention its ‘honest’ approach.
Set up by former BBC Apprentice finalist, Jamie Lester, Haus Properties is designed to be a world away from the stereotypical view of estate agents. From its beautifully home-styled offices where ‘Haus coffee’ is served around the kitchen table, to ‘Open Book,’ its online journal for vendors to track exactly what’s happening with their property and source useful information relating to it – the Haus experience is one that is meant to be enjoyed.
Jamie Lester, Head of Haus Properties, comments: “From the outset, I wanted Haus to challenge the traditional view of estate agency – whether buying, selling, letting or renting - I want our customers to experience an outstanding, honest and friendly service and I’m delighted that our approach is working. In what is an exceptionally competitive market, we’re getting a broad range of instructions because people want to be associated with our brand and to experience our service, which is an outstanding achievement for a new agency. We have an extensive list of applicants too, so we’re able to meet our vendors and landlords expectations.
“Not only that, but supporting local businesses and communities is an imperative part of our ethos, so we’re delighted to have sourced our suppliers locally, and inspired a generation of school children through our school talks and competitions. I hope to emulate the success in other London suburbs in the near future.”
Haus Properties opened its Fulham office in November 2011 and the Chiswick office opened its doors in May 2012. There are plans for further London offices in future.
