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.
"Having recently inherited my late mothers house i made the decision to sell the property rather than let it. After discussing my decision with friends Flat Homes was recommended to me as a family run business who really looked after their customers. I was told that unlike some major high street Estate Agents the Flat Homes staff were able to provide a more personal service tailored to my needs. And so it has turned out. In my contacts with Gareth, Gemma and Gwilym I have received nothing less than a first class service.. Throughout the selling process I have received regular updates on progress and have today completed the quick sale of my mothers house. Throughout the process there was nothing for me to do other than leave the Flat Homes team to take care of everything for me. So if you are considering selling your house Flat Homes come highly recommended by me. If my experience is anything to go by you won't be disappointed by the outcome. "
