Alan Goldin appoints new sales and lettings Manager
Rebecca Delman has joined the Alan Goldin team as sales and lettings Manager in Temple Fortune.
With ten years’ experience in residential sales, specialising in prime markets across northwest London, her appointment is seen by the company as an important part of the agency’s strategy to drive up the sales side of the business.
Delman explained: “I’m confident that we can grow sales significantly by combining our unrivalled local knowledge with a highly personal service backed up with the latest technology. I was born and brought up in this part of London and I’m looking forward to being able to help people with every aspect of the sales process from our prime location in the centre of Temple Fortune.
“Our first target area is Hampstead Garden Suburb where we are well-known in the lettings market and for a limited period we will be offering a very tempting discounted sales fee. Being able to tap into the extensive landlord database of our sister business Home Minders is central to our plan and is already helping us to expand our reach across north London.
“With the lifting of Covid restrictions, the rebound in the economy and the buoyancy of the London property market, I think it’s a very good time to be working in our market. Our ambition is to look at how we can expand our services whilst retaining our long-standing reputation for delivering a friendly professional service.”
