Glyn is one of Reeds Rains 'Lettings Specialists' and given his history as a landlord over the past 23 years, along with a history in establishing rental business with his former employers, there is nobody better qualified in the local area to advise and help with your rental requirements.

It isn't just Reeds Rains that is welcoming Glyn back, he is returning to an area that is very familiar to him, his home town of Cheadle. His parents still live close to Kingsway School, where he himself attended when it was better known as Broadway. A keen sportsman, Glyn belonged to the Cheadle Lacrosse Club from a very early age and still turns out now and again to help out, however he admits it does take longer for him to recover nowadays.

"Knowing the area so well and given my own personal experience in renting out my own properties, I feel I can share advise and knowledge from all aspects of the rental market, something which I have found gives great comfort to new landlords I deal with." Glyn goes on to say "It can be a very daunting prospect for would be landlords who have heard horror stories, but with the back up of a great team at Reeds Rains, we have eased a number of clients apprehensions. Given that we managed over 7000 properties last year alone I honestly believe that we are the best placed agent in the local area to help let and manage any property.
