May & Co: The Home Front

Planning a move? Harry Yianni and the team at May & Co have the experience to help you…

‘The best part of my job is meeting so many interesting people,’ says Harry Yianni, Sales and Lettings Director of May & Co. ‘Having worked in Chelsea since 2004, I’ve been able to help the same clients at different points in their property-buying cycle – from lettings to buying a first flat to moving into a family home.

‘It’s all about building a long-term relationship. That epitomises our philosophy: if customers have a positive experience with us they will come back in the knowledge that they’ll see a familiar face. That trust is very important.’

May & Co has a proud heritage in the Chelsea property market. The company was founded in 1920 and Harry, who has over 20 years industry experience, joined his brother John when he acquired the business 15 years ago. No one knows the local housing stock better. ‘When it comes to valuations for both sale and rental, I believe in being realistic,’ explains Harry.

‘Over the years I’ve seen many examples of clients being promised the moon and the stars to secure an instruction. We only quote figures that we can achieve. That integrity pays dividends in the long run.’

May & Co provides a full lettings management service – drawing up tenancy agreements, checking references, collecting rent and attending to repairs – and Harry also buys and sells at auction on behalf of clients. ‘Those properties tend to be ones on a short lease or which need to be sold quickly. Also, we are often recommended to handle probate valuations. That requires a more thorough property description, including details of the surrounding area and similar properties.’

If anyone is qualified to assess the current market it is Harry. ‘Inevitably, many people are waiting to see what happens with Brexit. However, there are still good buyers and tenants out there. The fact that Chelsea is such a desirable area has kept values more buoyant.

‘We’re fortunate that many clients come to us through word-of-mouth recommendation. If you’re thinking of buying, selling or letting we will provide a friendly, personal service that gets results.’

KEEP THINGS LOCAL IS A MEDIA BUSINESS WITH A UNIQUE LOCAL FOCUS

The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK. The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media. Get in touch to be featured in our Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring issues.
