Last Friday’s presentation was by John Palmer of Porters Lets. John fills the Letting Agent category in the BNI Aspire Hull Chapter

John bought his first home in 1995 and made money from his property by renting out two of the three bedrooms to work colleagues.
He bought his first investment property down Worthing Street in 1998 for £27,750.
John built up his portfolio slowly whilst working for Ideal Standard (then GE, then Ideal Standard again!) as a Management Accountant.
John left Ideal Standard in 2005 to go full time in property, and launched Porters in 2014.

Porters Vision

Working with our Business Partners, Suppliers, Tenants and Landlords we improve the standard of housing in Hull by putting respect for the home at the heart of what we do.

Porters Mission

Providing tenants with a safe and secure home. We do this by working with landlords who have the same values as us and who want a long-term profitable investment.

Using our Values we build the wealth of ourselves, our business partners and our clients through property investment.

Porters Values

  • Honesty – being honest, open and truthful to ourselves and others
  • Respect – we respect ourselves and others and expect that in return
  • Responsibility – we take responsibility for our actions
  • Care – we take care in all we do
  • Fairness – we treat people fairly
  • Security – to build secure futures for all concerned

Porters Clients

“John has been very helpful in setting up a new tenant and agreement. Would recommend. Good rates that cover all aspects of the let instead of some of the larger agents that charge for everything and commission on trades too!”

“I was introduced to John by a colleague at work and it was the best move I could have made in using John of Porters Let to manage my property. He has been so helpful and given very good advice for a first time landlady. I have found him to be very efficient and always on time. I have since recommended him to a friend of mine who has also used his services. He goes above and beyond to make everything run as smoothly as possible. I will certainly recommend him to anyone else who wishes to rent their property. Keep the good work up John you are a godsend!”

Porters Offer:

  • Free rental valuation
  • Find a tenant service – £300
  • Fully managed service – £100 plus 10% of monthly rent
