Martyn Gerrard in the News

 

Here at Martyn Gerrard, we invest in the expertise of our specialist media agency to effectively market your property, using every media channel possible to raise the profile of the houses on our books. Alongside our regular advertising and marketing efforts, we strive to ensure that your property is represented favourably across a variety of platforms, promoting the North London community we represent by gaining maximum exposure in the press.

 

Our Managing Director, Simon Gerrard, is fighting your corner with the Government, writing a letter to Boris Johnson with his recommendations of policies that will help boost market activity and aid all those looking to move home, purchase a buy to let property or rent. Focussing heavily on the need for stamp duty reform, the letter addresses how switching tax from buyers to sellers would make it easier for first-time buyers and second-steppers to move up the property ladder without diminishing their ambitions. Following the letter’s arrival at 10 Downing Street, we are confident that Simon’s efforts will trigger meaningful change across the industry.

 

In partnership with our media agency, we share our professional perspective on the political and economic issues impacting today’s residential property market with a wide variety of platforms. Estate Agents Today’s profile piece on Managing Director Simon Gerrard and his letter-writing campaign is just one example of how our agency engages with major issues in the industry, drawing attention to the benefits of a stamp duty switch and drumming up support for reform among landlords. Simon also appeared on Sky News’ primetime Ian King show to discuss the property market and Brexit, offering his views on what the Government need to be doing to protect the property market. The national and local attention that Simon’s campaign has received from the media demonstrates how our agency’s specialist expertise can make real change in the property sector, making our voice heard in a way that maintains our status as leading commentators in North London and beyond.
