FlatHomes is a family run business with dealings throughout Cardiff and Penarth, including parts of Barry, Newport and the lower valleys.
Established in 2000, FlatHomes derives its name from the similarly spelt Bristol Channel island, steeped in history, Flat Holm. Set up in a conservatory by a private landlord, Gwilym Rees, primarily just to help other independent landlords find tenants for their vacant properties the business soon expanded to cover all aspects of property services.
Back in 2000 with it being the early stages of website development the primary focus for sourcing business was newspaper adverts, boards outside properties and predominantly word of mouth. Moving on nearly two decades FlatHomes still prides itself that the main source of business is still the sharing of positive feedback from the numerous clients we deal with, rather than a hard sell attitude.
The long-term vision of the business is growth. FlatHomes has always considered itself a Lettings and Property Management company first and foremost. However, the business is looking to expand its sales division and ever growing network of relationships with tradesman in and around the city to continue providing its excellent maintenance service.
"I can't fault the service I have received from your company. Gemma has been especially brilliant. No matter is too small for them! When the boiler went in my rented house I was able to pay for it through the incoming rent. This meant no big bill to pay upfront. The house was my late mothers so I was conscious that it needed to be kept in the great condition it was in when initially rented. I have always had really reliable tenants in the property, they are all vetted by the team. Hassle free and all for a small fee. 5* company"
