Managing Director and co-founder of Progressive Lets
Wayne Beecham is East Midland’s answer to property management. His hard work and high standards of service have gained him a fierce reputation within the regional lettings market. He knows virtually everything about owning and managing a residential property portfolio because he’s not only a successful landlord himself, but also co-founder and “hands on” managing director of one of Peterborough’s fastest growing lettings agents where he’s responsible for a portfolio worth more than £55m.
Wayne’s interest in and passion for property began when he purchased his first buy to let aged 18. By the time he was in his early 20s he had been instrumental in setting up one of the most recognised local lettings agents of the noughties, managing more than 450 properties for almost a decade.
Now in his 30s, Wayne runs his own agency, Progressive Lets – a company he set up in 2012 with Progressive Property co-founders, Rob Moore and Mark Homer.
He employs eight full time staff who between them have over 50 years’ lettings experience and manage over 650 properties across Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire.
If you’ve met Wayne then you’ll know he’s one of the most knowledgeable, detailed-orientated lettings operations specialists around – he lives, sleeps and breathes property and knows how to generate the highest amount of income from the lowest amount of investment.
“He knows exactly what’s required to maximise your cashflow and minimise your voids.”
He has experience in every area of lettings and property management – he knows how to find property ‘goldmine areas’, source the right deal to generate the highest return on investment, tricks to minimise cost when setting up a rental, how to publicise and market a property so it receives the greatest exposure, what to consider and do when referencing prospective tenants and tips to increase annual rent.
Wayne’s down to earth, straight-talking approach is often referred to in the industry and by those who know him as ‘exactly what it says on the tin’.
