Andrew has over 18 years experience in the lettings industry & prides himself on being dedicated to each and every customer. His “can do” attitude means that some days he works long in to the night to get the job done & his mobile phone is never turned off. In his spare time, Andrew enjoys spending time in the Lake District where he grew up.

As well as owning Brighter Lets, Paula is a qualified solicitor enabling her legal skills and knowledge to be used in the day-to day running of the business….something not many other letting agents can boast! Aside from work, Paula plays for the Brighter Lets netball team with as much passion as she does for the business!
