The history of Belvoir Group Lettings
Belvoir was founded by the Goddard family in 1995, over 25 years ago. From day one, Belvoir Lettings’s values have been strong, focused on building relationships and showing individual care to each customer. These values remain unchanged today, and they are now perfectly paired with the company’s huge amount of experience and knowledge, gathered across three decades at the forefront of the ever-changing UK real estate industry.
Organic growth and acquisitions have both contributed to the continued expansion of the Belvoir Group, which now boasts 439 offices across its different brands, “with specialisms in residential lettings, property management, residential sales, and property-related financial services” [Belvoir Group]. Across the Group, Belvoir employees manage over 65,000 UK properties, so it’s no surprise that the brand has such a strong reputation in local communities up and down the country.
