John’s company won the Sunday Times letting agency of the year in 2014 and a year later he was awarded the outstanding contribution to lettings award.

Within 24 hours of the tenant fee ban being announced John and his team had implemented a strategy that saw his company’s dependence on tenant fees drop from 14.4% of turnover to its current rate of 4% and by June it will be around 2.5% of turnover.
