Celebrating its 10 year anniversary this November, Lemontree Properties has gained our award as Business of the Month. Having opened in Newmarket as an independent business owned by Client Services Director Beth Barnham, the business has continued to flourish and now employs seven local women.
Explaining her decision to open, Beth said: "The Cambridge agent I was working for prior to launching Lemontree decided that it was no longer a viable option to open a branch in Newmarket due to a decline in the sales market. Consequently they decided to sell it on.
"My husband and I seized the opportunity to buy the small portfolio of managed properties and within six weeks had found an office, hired our first member of staff (who’s still with us today), decided on the company name, sorted all of the branding and commenced with a new property management system.
"It was manic at first getting our heads round everything but with hard work and determination over the following years, we have grown into a highly reputable independent lettings specialist with over 300 managed properties."
Having recently attended our Love Newmarket BID Experience Day at Newmarket Racecourses, Beth commented it was great getting to put faces to names behind the brand.
When asked what the business plans are as we look towards the end of the year, Beth added: "We had our second rebrand recently to ensure that we keep our identity fresh and in front of our competition. Our new website and pool car reinforces this. We are also always committed to fulfilling our obligations to both our landlords and tenants, which in turn helps us to expand."
We look forward to seeing what the anniversary celebrations entail, but congratulate the local team for reaching such a milestone.
