Let It! in Kettering Town Centre

Mark and Louise Hurd, a husband and wife team, set up Let it Homes in 2007. Both came from non-estate agency backgrounds, Mark a barrister in private practise and Louise a teacher, but both were landlords who were dissatisfied with the service they had received from various agents in the town. This prompted them to set a letting agency themselves.

Their experience as landlords and their professional backgrounds placed them in a good position to attract clients and grow their business.  Moreover, not being from the industry they were not shackled by the customary business model and approach of estate agents generally and marketed and therefore run their business from a fresh perspective.

Let It Homes has become one of the largest if not the largest agency (in terms of the number of managed properties and landlord clients) in Kettering. Both Mark and Louise believe in a very ‘hands on‘ approach and therefore unlike may of the other larger agencies , they as the owners, are always on site to ensure the proper running of the business.

In 2011 they set up an office in the High Street in Wellingborough, an office managed by Mark’s brother Glenn (again from a professional management (though non-estate agency) background) who soon made Let It Homes one of the largest and most successful agents in Wellingborough too. In short Let It Homes offers a meticulous, professional approach to marketing and managing their properties with all the benefits of a personal touch and attention to detail that a well run family business can offer to its clients.

Mark Hurd

Mark Hurd (Barrister-at-Law, LLB Hons) Partner

Mark practised as a barrister in private practice . A longstanding landlord, he ventured into the property industry in 2007 when he and Louise set up Let It Homes, which fast became the largest and most successful lettings agency in the Kettering area . His experience as a landlord and also as a lawyer at the sharp end of legal practice combined with a professional and diligent approach to his work has undoubtedly played its part in the success of the business. Although he is still a member of his barristers’ chambers in Leicester (currently as a door tenant) the demands and success of Let It Homes have meant that in recent years he has thrown himself into the business on a full-time basis. In his spare time Mark enjoys physical activity being a regular attender at his local gym, playing football and squash and walking trips . He also enjoys travel, learning foreign languages, cooking and drinking wine. AML Officer.
