Aggie Tukendorf, Lettings Manager at Horton and Garton, specialises in building relationships with landlords and tenants
Not many people stay in the profession in which they worked as a Saturday job, but that’s what has happened to Aggie Tukendorf, the new Lettings Manager at Horton and Garton.
‘I started here when I was 16, helping out with general office admin, and I kept coming back during my school and university holidays,’ she recalls. ‘Then, after graduating and a period travelling, I was offered a position as a Lettings Negotiator. I didn’t hesitate – it was a lovely team and environment, just as it is now, so why would I want to leave somewhere like that!’
Aggie is a born and bred local who knows the area like the back of her hand. She has specialised in lettings throughout her career and now leads Hammersmith’s most successful lettings team. ‘It’s fast-paced, no two days are the same and you see some very interesting properties,’ she says. ‘Currently, the local market nis busy with more people returning to London post-lockdown. Encouragingly, rental values have now returned to pre-pandemic levels, with family homes with gardens at a premium, and the demand for one and two-bedroom flats is also coming back.’
Horton and Garton offers a comprehensive lettings service, including Let and Managed for landlords (that includes regular property inspections). ‘Of course. we make sure that everything is done correctly in terms of legislation and we carry out all the investigative checks and referencing,’ explains Aggie.
‘Most importantly, clients are not just figures to us – it’s never a case of having to get another deal over the line. We find the highest calibre tenant for each property and at the best price; we value honestly and we get to know our landlords and tenants. Equally, when someone moves in, we don’t disappear; we’re always there as a point of contact – it’s in everyone’s interest to have a smooth relationship.
‘If you are thinking of letting or renting a property in Hammersmith or Shepherd’s Bush this summer, we would be delighted to help.’
