A local experienced letting agent has founded her own business in Macclesfield.
Anne-Marie Smith has just founded Anne-Marie Lettings and Property Management, a company directed and co-owned solely by herself.
As well as having properties available for Macclesfield residents to move into, Anne-Marie is offering a management service to landlords which claims to provide a uniquely personal connection with her clients.
She has just established the business, after spending her whole career in the letting market working across Wilmslow, Sandbach and Stockport.
She has had plenty of experience in the business, but has only now decided to go solo after over 22 years working in property.
"I am very excited to start my own business as I feel I can offer help, support and extensive knowledge to help grow landlords investments and find tenants the homes they love," said Anne-Marie.
"I started my property career as an office administrator, through to a operations director, which gave me vast experience and knowledge across all areas of the lettings business.
"I've covered Macclesfield, but I've never concentrated this much on Macclesfield until now.
"If I hadn't had children I would have done it [started my own company] years ago."
Anne-Marie also lives near to her clientele, residing with her family in Tytherington.
"If I don't do it now I'll be too old," she joked.
Anne-Marie values the personal service that her property letting and management agency provides.
"I've named the business after myself," she continued.
"The reason being that it lies with me, if I provide a bad service in my name.
"The reason I put it in my own name was to prove that what I say I'll do, I'll do."
Anne-Marie also believes her business can provide a stable and established relationship with landlords.

"That's another reason why I've gone solo as well," said Anne-Marie.
"A lot of landlords used to complain about change of staff and never speaking to the same person.
"I'm honest, reliable, they get a personal service and I'll speak to the person that's dealing with it."
She has worked in the Cheshire letting market exclusively for almost a quarter-century, and will serve Macclesfield and the surrounding areas with her new venture.
"This is where I live so it's more personal," she added.
"The people I'm meeting are people that I've known for years, so they're getting to know what I actually do.
"I love Macclesfield for the walks. We've got beautiful scenery. I'm very lucky living in Macclesfield."
Anne-Marie has high hopes for the future of her to let property business.
"I want to develop a strong business where people know the name and it's a reliable business," she explained.
"So when people see my name and brand they trust me and come to me because of my professionalism and because of my knowledge.
"That's where I want to sit, so I'm building a business built on a reputation. Because I've got no clientele, it's a fresh start.
"I want people to work with me because I'm good at what I do.
She also has an introductory limited-time offer that landlords can use at the moment.
"I'm offering two months management free for any landlord that comes to me and I manage first. It won't be forever, but for the time being." said Anne-Marie.
For those looking to rent, properties currently up for letting on her site range from a few hundred pounds a month to a few thousand.
