Our Story

Choice Rentals has been established as a professional letting agents in Blackpool and Cleveleys since 2007 when 2 long-standing property investors took the bold step of moving into property management for clients. David had been a Business development manager for 2 well known banking houses for the previous 10 years, whilst at the same time investing in property and steadily growing a strong yielding portfolio. Darren had successfully built a Plumbing and Electrical contractors up over a number of years to become one of the largest firms on the Fylde. He too had been investing in property since the mid 90's. Between them they had a large portfolio of properties on the coast and this was slowly taking over their day jobs. As they were busy during normal hours they had no alternative other than to use local agents to let and manage some of our properties. This was not an enjoyable experience, and the common feeling was that they were expensive, inefficient and self-motivated (not client-motivated). 

With that in mind Choice Rentals was born and their cumulative experience and completely differing skillsets have meant that they have continued to grow and now enjoy a large and loyal client base of both landlords and tenants. With David’s financial experience and Darren's trade experience they had a fantastic range of skills, not to mention all of their own years of experience being landlords personally and understanding what it is a client desires from their Letting agent.

 

Based in Cleveleys, Choice Rentals predominately cover Blackpool and the Fylde Coast but over the years we have been introduced to clients all over the North West and now enjoy managing properties throughout Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

 

From us!

 

"Having lived in the town for over 30 years we have seen the many changes that have occurred and we’re able to maximise the yields returnable from investment property by using our many years experience. We have properties let in FY1 through to FY8 and given the population swell and often transient nature of residents we continue to be inundated with tenant requests and firmly believe that there is a huge undersupply of good quality accommodation in Blackpool. This is obviously great for any property owner as it means a wealth of target tenants and further more pushes rents in a northwardly direction." David Bailey

 

"We are personally accredited landlords and have long and solid relationships with many different local organisations whom can only benefit investors locally. We are private members of the National Landlords Association and also regulars at the Blackpool local residents and landlord forum.

 We pride ourselves on a high level of service and treat all our tenants with the highest degree of respect. We understand what motivates landlords and ensure that the hassles associated with property management are taken away from them whilst at the same time ensuring they receive their rent quickly. All our services are more than affordable and given our low cost base we can often comfortably offer better prices than our more expensive competitors." Darren Dickenson
