Raymond MitchellLettings, Management & Maintenance
Raymond joined New Leaf Homes in November 2011 and is developing the property management and maintenance area of the business.
Having served in the ministry for 20 years in South Africa, Raymond has exceptional social skills and works well with Landlords and Tenants to develop solid long standing relationships. Raymond has also worked as a teacher of Business Studies, Economics and Technology in a private school in South Africa and has a sound business head and caring approach to the family team. Ray plays a huge role in developing the skills of the Foreign Exchange Students, who come to support the family team administratively throughout the year, whilst learning English and business management.
Raymond offers on the side, a full "House Doctor Service" for Landlords to get their property up to speed in-between lettings. This will include the refurbishment of the property from painting and decorating, re-carpeting, minor repairs to carpet and professional cleaning, with the help of approved subcontractors. Raymond will provide quotes and manage the whole process to get the property to a professional standard ready for re-letting.
Raymond and Vivien are also focussed to build the business in order to simultaneously expand their own personal portfolio through the innovative investor strategies of Rent to Sell (Lease Options) and Buy to Let, along with educating the public to implement these strategies.
