If you are looking for an award-winning, professional property management agent in Reading, then please do not hesitate to contact Realty for a quotation.
We would be delighted to meet with you to understand your development further, and to provide you with a bespoke, detailed, management proposal for your development in Reading.
Realty specialise in the management of long leasehold apartment developments, mixed-use developments, and the management of large estates of homes with areas of public open space.
Our varied portfolio means there is very little we have not come across before in Reading and the surrounding areas; including the management of new build properties, Grade II listed buildings, buildings in conservation areas, large complex developments, and developments with communal facilities such as lifts, large communal heating & hot water systems, leisure facilities, play features etc.
We operate and work alongside a variety of clients in Reading and across the country, including Resident Management Companies, Freeholders, Developers and Right to Manage Companies
We take a down to earth and common sense approach to management, and employ a highly skilled and experienced workforce that ensure all developments are pleasant places to live and are maintained to exceptional standards, in line with all regulatory and procedural obligations.
We always look to appoint local independent contractors within Reading where possible, to ensure that we support the local community, can obtain the best value, and to reduce travel costs and pollution.
We have developed a niche in recent years for turning around buildings that have suffered a period of neglect, significant arrears, and lack of proactive management and communication.
All Realty’s property managers are required (and fully funded) to gain qualifications through IRPM & RICS, with the remainder of staff funded for relevant qualifications for their roles. Staff are kept up-to-date with case law/best practice via industry bodies including ARMA, IRPM and RICS, with further structured in-house and external training provided from leading industry specialists.
Although technical knowledge is vitally important, we invest considerably in our staff’s soft-skills as it is the customer-service element of our service-delivery that most definitively sets us apart from our competitors. We are great believers that happy staff = happy customers, and therefore in the last few years we have invested considerably in enviable employment packages that continually motivate our employees to want to come work every day & provide that fabulous first class service.

What our customers say
Here are a few comments from a variety of customers including those Realty have served for two decades or more and those that we have just started to work with.
Realty has been by far the best: attentive, fair and conscientious
I’ve been a Director at two different properties, and have dealt with three different management companies. Of these, Realty has been by far the best: attentive, fair and conscientious. The company has been responsible for overseeing an ambitious renovation project of the apartment complex I now live in. It has been diligent in working with Directors and explaining sometimes complex and difficult decisions to owners. My experience of other companies, by contrast, is that each agent is dealing with so many properties that they have to prioritise efficiency over scrupulousness. With Realty, both principles matter equally.
With Realty there has been the feeling of being in safe hands…
Queries and requests for information are responded to promptly and professionally. We are able to rely on them to pursue and address any issue or problem raised. There has been a common sense approach to maintenance, finances and various issues, with good communication and transparency. From the start they have welcomed input from our Flat Owners’ Association, enabling a good working relationship. The whole development has improved since Realty took over as our management company. We have no hesitation in recommending them.

They are professional, knowledgeable about legislation & health and safety
I would recommend Realty as a management company. They are professional, knowledgeable about legislation, health and safety and have taken over the management of the apartment block seamlessly. Problems are dealt with quickly and quotes from sub-contractors for works sought to ensure value for money and quality.
