“BrightWater Letting Agency” … the name behind the Property Management Letting brands …. is an amalgam of other well-known operators in this field – “Mitchells Management”, “BrightWater Estates” and “Taylor Viscount”. The New Milton based “Mitchells Management” was merged with the Bournemouth based operations of “BrightWater Estates” both of whom then operated under the group banner of “BrightWater”, then that group enlarge still further by adding the Boscombe based portfolio of “Taylor Viscount”, giving them overall management of hundreds of landlords … and coverage from Poole through to Lymington. These three corporate brands have between them been managing properties for Landlords since 1962!”
However given further plans to add other businesses to the group’s portfolio in due course to extend its reach and improve still further its staffing levels, the group has simplified its corporate branding by adopting the group name “BrightWater Letting Agency” … whilst still retaining the differing individual brand names of “Mitchells Management”, “BrightWater Estates” and “Taylor Viscount” alongside, in much the same way as other large national operators such as Countrywide have done with their portfolio of local brands.
To accommodate our growing business and additional staff, the company now occupies a 1,400 sq. ft. suite of offices at Shops 5 & 6 Parkland Place in Old Milton Road, New Milton. This not only provides us with room for what is currently a total of 8 dedicated “Lettings Only” staff, but also enables us to provide confidential bank styled meeting rooms for Tenants to discuss their rental applications and operational issues in private. A separate meeting room also allows us to meet with Landlords in private to discuss any operational and relationship matters.
All staff do nothing other than Lettings. They are not involved in any Estate Agency sales work and so are 100% dedicated to managing Rental Properties only”.
