Author of the Rotherham Property Blog
I am a long time resident of Rotherham and am Senior Manager in both Bricknells Rentals and Fenton Board Estate Agents.
On this blog I will share what is happening in Rotherham’s Property market, even looking at specific areas and housing estates.
At other times I will post what I consider are decent buy to let deals. Some will be on the market with me whilst others may be marketed by other agents in Rotherham.
The Rotherham Property Blog is brought to you in partnership with Bricknells Rentals – Rotherham’s top independent letting agent.
