We want to change Staffordshire

We place our clients at the centre of our business. We provide a wide range of sales, lettings and property management services to buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants.

We have been set up with an emphasis on transparent, professional and ethical trading; and raising funds for a diverse range of charities selected by our clients.

Unlike any other sales, lettings or property management agents in Staffordshire, we donate the majority of our profits to charity without an upper limit – the more profit we make the more we can give away! These are charities only selected by our clients and employees on a truly proportional scale.

We're not in it
for the money

Except to give away the majority of it

We compete in the market like any other business. We pursue and make a profit, but our founder is never consumed by the motive of personal gain and doesn’t want to be forced into serving the interests of external shareholders. We continually reinvest the majority of our profits directly into the Staffordshire community and causes that mean so much to our clients.

We're mould breakers

We break with convention

The government now forces landlords or their respective letting agents to check that each tenant over 18 years old named on a tenancy agreement has the right to rent in the UK before they move in, or face stiff fines. This means copies will be taken of either a tenant’s British passport, or any documentation that gives them the right to live in the UK.

We're meeting
a need

With a helping hand

We are not constrained by other people’s ideas of where particular types of organisations may be best-placed to deliver. Wherever there’s a local social or environmental need that our clients feel passionate about, we will be financially supporting them – whether that’s a local hospice, combating homelessness or providing better health and social care services.

We endeavour to combine a public service ethos with the innovation and dynamism of a business. However, what sets us apart is a belief that being a competitive, well-run and profitable business is the best way of achieving our social and environmental aims.

Who gets the donations?

Who chooses?

YouGov recently found that 54 per cent of people believe that businesses should be legally obliged to donate part of their profits to charity. We think businesses should be donating the majority of their profits and we can’t think of a simpler way than asking every single client and employee each year to nominate where.

No matter how popular a single choice is, everyone gets a slice. If half of our nominations were for one cause, half of our donations go there, it’s that simple. So the more profits we make means the more we give away and you have the choice of where it goes.

The only condition we say is this charity must be a Staffordshire based.
