As one of the longest standing Estate and Letting Agents in Leamington Spa, Tara & Co like to keep up to date with the latest regulation changes, news and industry wide updates, so check out our blog below for any team news, and for our view on some of the property industry's hot topics.

Welcome to our Straight Talking Blog!


Since initially taking the decision to change our branding just over a year ago now, it is important that we remember the reasons behind our decision to call ourselves STRAIGHT TALKING PROPERTY PEOPLE.

This initially derived from many peoples' perception of the stereotypical "Esate Agent". Lke  many Estate Agents in Leamington Spa, we had built a team out of honest, hard working people, who certainly didn't conform to these stereotypes. We thought we would make something of this, add in some humour and see what the public reaction was.  Of course this has been mixed at times, but we like being able to provide our customers with something different from what they have become used to.  Or even desensitised to!

Straight-Talking Property Blog

Our bold brand colours have been used on large hoardings and we made a decision to remove ourselves from advertising in the local newspaper, which was a move many are not bold enough to make.  This is somewhat puzzling as almost all leads are now generated from online property portals and websites, and the people browsing the property section of a local newspaper are not likely to be your main target audience at one time.  We've received many comments from our clients, and our tag lines have certainly raised a few smiles, and eyebrows!

By starting this blog, we are going to be providing industry information, without the jargon, and want to give you a variety of helpful articles covering a variety of property related topics, in a straightforward way.
