“Determined to make the Private Rental Sector THE PLACE to live, work & invest!”
T: 01480 494939
Before starting Maxine Lester Residential Lettings in 2005 I had quite a varied career within insurance (where I was one of just 150 female brokers at Lloyds of London – a very uncommon breed at the time), recruitment and latterly marketing with a video entertainment company in Peterborough, looking after 6,000 customers throughout the UK and Germany. During this time I began to build my portfolio of properties with my husband and was constantly frustrated about how badly my agent looked after my properties, the rotten customer service and total lack of communication.
I realised that if I wanted a job doing well, then I should just do it myself… Bizarre timing meant that redundancy from my job freed me up to do what I had always wanted to – work for myself and have a company that stood up for the standards I had been searching for.
Since I opened the Maxine Lester doors with my husband Matthew, I have never looked back and it can only be put down to the knowledgeable team I have working alongside me. I have such an enviable position being able to help the team develop skills and achieve qualifications within the Lettings industry, and become known for their superb customer service when they win National accolades such as the ESTAs and Times & Sunday Times Awards.
My main role is to oversee the company marketing and look for new innovative ways to help our customers obtain the best yield for their rental investments.
