Your property first
Whether you are considering purchasing a second home in north Cornwall, or have a holiday property ready to let in the area John Bray and Partners can help.
John Bray and Partners, a specialist north Cornwall estate and holiday letting agency, has been holiday letting and managing properties in Rock, Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Port Isaac since 1971. The business started when local Cornishman and postmaster John Bray was first asked to act as a trusted key holder for a few houses in Rock village whose owners allowed friends to come and stay. A holiday letting business was soon born, which was later expanded into an estate agency.
“We’re able to offer the utmost care and attention for both our owners and their properties.”
The business has grown substantially in line with the rise in popularity of the area. As from the offset, excellent customer service remains at the core of the business. “With a team of 32 permanent staff on hand we can put your property first ensuring the appropriate care and attention that you would expect,” says Alex Roads, a Director at John Bray Cornish Holidays, thereby ensuring owners and guests, buyers and sellers receive a personalised service. Fellow Director Josephine Ashby adds, “we are big enough to cope with our growing instructions, but small enough to care and with more staff per letting house that we look after, we are able to offer the utmost care and attention for both our owners and their properties.”
The friendly local John Bray team is professionally qualified and includes: maintenance, housekeeping, bookings, marketing, client accounts, admin, tradespeople, chartered surveyors and building technicians. That, coupled with excellent supplier contacts, means John Bray is well placed to offer a unique service for second homeowners who live out of county.
With offices in Rock and Port Isaac, both located within approximately five minutes of every property the team sell, manage or let, John Bray and Partners are centrally located for their owners’ and sellers who find it handy to speak to someone in person, as well as guests and buyers who pop in to talk to them face-to-face about their requirements. With local knowledge that is second to none, they are the ‘go-to’ agents for anything within this beautiful five-mile radius of the Camel estuary.
