Setting the standard for 29 years

    Who We Are

    Harker & Bullman were Wimborne's very first dedicated letting agent when we opened for business in 1988.

    For the past 29 years, we have maintained our position at the top of the local lettings market and have established an excellent reputation for service, efficiency and reliability.

    We are an independent family owned business and manage over 300 properties across East Dorset, Blandford, Poole and Bournemouth.


    Why Use Harker & Bullman

    > Devoted to Property Letting and Management. We are not Estate Agents.

    > Regulated members of ARLA Propertymark. This brings with it Client Money Protection, ensures our staff are fully trained and our systems are checked on a regular basis.

    > First-Class customer service from efficient staff who go the extra mile.

    > Competitive fees for both Landlords and Tenants.

    > Dedicated Property Managers act as point of contact for each property.

    > Our Landlords and Tenants say they feel safe renting with Harker & Bullman.

    > Consistent positive reviews on Google, RaterAgent and AllAgents websites.

    > The people! Our team's experience, judgement and attitude sets us apart.


    What We Stand For

    Our principles underpin our strategy plus they make good business sense.

    By behaving in a transparent, ethical manner, by paying attention to the finer details and by making the right (sometimes hard) decisions, our customers trust us and the business operates more effectively.

    Our reputation has taken a long time to build and we are determined to keep it. We try to care for every property as if it were our own and deliver a First-Class customer service to both Landlords and Tenants. By taking the time do things properly and by understanding our clients' needs, many common problems are avoided and customer satisfaction is increased.

    Letting a property is just the beginning of our work so we are not interested in making a 'quick buck' if it comes at the expense of long term relationships or greater rewards for our clients.

    What makes Harker & Bullman different?


    We understand that choosing a Letting Agent can be daunting task.

    Not only do you require someone who can quickly find quality tenants at the market rent but there is an increasing amount of paperwork that must be correctly prepared and served. Things only come unstuck down the line if this is not done.

    Did You Know? There are now 150 different pieces of legislation that apply to landlords so it is vitally important you instruct a capable agent who can ensure you remain on the right side of the law and that your property is safe.

    Harker & Bullman offers a range of comprehensive services to make your life easier and can be flexible to an individual landlord's needs.


    Maximising Your returns

    > Free, Honest Advice on what to look for when purchasing a Buy-To-Let investment or how to prepare your property for letting.

    > A Quick Let - Effective marketing will ensure that your property is seen immediately by prospective tenants and it is consistently let with the minimum delay.

    > Minimal Void Periods - We aim to be ahead of the game so that we know in advance when your tenants are planning to move on. This way we can re-advertise the property early enough to locate a suitable tenant and avoid your property standing empty

    > Prompt Rental Payments - We have a dedicated accounts department who will pay your rent directly into your account as soon as it is received - and chase any late payments promptly on your behalf.


    Protecting Your asset

    > The Right Tenant - Our experience and our established independent tenant reference systems help us to find the best tenants possible.

    > A Well Maintained Property - Our fully trained team of Property Managers will visit your property on a regular basis and report back to you - only this way can you be fully aware of how your asset is cared for. Any maintenance is dealt with swiftly, once we have received your authorisation.

    > A Smooth Transition From One Tenant To The Next - We use extremely detailed inventory reports for each property and in the hands of our property managers this enables us to make the all-important final checks at the end of each tenancy

    > Guidance On Legal And Safety Regulations - As ARLA regulated agents we always strive to keep our landlords up to date with any new requirements - to make sure your property complies with all regulations.


    Building Trust

    > Harker & Bullman is a long term licenced member of ARLA Propertymark (Association of Residential Letting Agents). This brings with it Client Money Protection, external auditing and means we are up-to-date with any legislation changes. A quarter of our staff are MARLA qualified.

    > We are dedicated to Lettings and Property Management. We are not Estate Agents and have no distractions or other agenda.

    > Unlike many Letting Agents, we do not take a commission on the repairs we arrange- we use trusted, competent and competitive tradespeople and the price of the job is the price you pay!

    > We are not interested in making a quick buck at the expense of your long-term position. We aim to submit the 'Right' tenant, not necessarily the first.
