Hamptons International has opened a new Lettings department operating from their successful sales office in Amersham. Maria Baker, who has worked for Hamptons International for nearly ten years, is the Lettings Manager and is responsible for growing the Lettings business in the Chilterns.
Maria lives locally with her two children and has grown up in the Chilterns. She began her career with Hamptons in 2006 and managed Hamptons City office through the difficult times of the recession in 2009. In 2012 Maria moved over to manage the Rickmansworth office. After taking a career break to spend time with her children, Maria is looking forward to returning to Hamptons International to combine her experience in the London and corporate markets together with her extensive knowledge of the area.
Maria Baker, Lettings Manager of Amersham comments: “I am really excited to be working with the established sales team here in Amersham and proud to be back working for Hamptons. We have successful Lettings offices locally in Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross, Rickmansworth and Headington and I am looking forward to building a successful Lettings Business from Amersham and surrounding villages.
It’s been a challenging market for much of 2017: but so far this year, Hamptons International’s lettings departments have listed over 7,000 properties, registered 39,000 applicants, booked 42,000 viewings, and completed nearly 6,000 new lets.
In terms of the local lettings market, rents have not significantly increased and properties priced correctly and presented well will let quickly. Encouragingly, there has been an increase in activity in the corporate market and a demand for properties available for short lets. There is a demand for apartments within close proximity to the stations as well as family homes; the demand being driven by catchment areas for schools. I am excited about the potential opportunity for this brand new department and look forward to watching it grow and thrive in the future.”
