How We Transformed from iLet to brikk haus: Our Journey

A lot of you will already know our owner, Nykky.  She’s lived in Newport-on-Tay for a number of years with her husband and daughter, and you’ll regularly see her being dragged along the street by her young Vizsla dog, Luca.

Here you can explore the story of her journey, the obstacles she’s encountered, and the idea behind her decision to diversify the business from iLet to Brikk.

iLet – our first property business

Created from a real passion for property, and a commitment to delivering professional, and personal letting services to landlords.

Our journey started with a dedicated small team focused on efficiently managing rental properties whilst focussing on a personalised approach. Our clients were always a name to us, never just a number.

Over time, we developed a good reputation for professionalism, client dedication, and expertise in property management. Our rental property portfolio expanded, and today we have a loyal client base who trust us to manage their property investments.

We grew ‘organically’, where most of our business resulted in referrals through word of mouth, which is something I’m really proud and grateful for.

As we have continued to work in the lettings market, I noticed an increased demand for a comprehensive estate agency service that extended beyond our current rental property business.

Clients frequently asked me for recommendations for selling their properties, which sparked the idea for our new venture. It became obvious that we could expand our services to further serve our clients and end their stress in looking for an estate agent. They could just use us, couldn’t they?!  This way they save money, and can rely on a much smoother transaction process, from start to finish. And they already know who they are working with.

In response to this demand, and us being able to offer an additional property service, we made the decision to expand our operations and created brikk haus; a brand that offers a broader list of property services.

With the launch of brikk haus, we are now positioned to provide our ongoing letting services, along with an extensive list of local estate agency services, including:

  1. Property Sales: We have broadened our expertise to assist clients in both buying and selling residential properties.
  2. Property Valuation: Our valuers now provide precise property valuation services to assist clients in making well-informed decisions.
  3. Estate Agency Advice: We have introduced an estate agency advisory service to guide clients through any areas they may find uncertain, along with offering insights into local investment opportunities.

While it hasn’t been without its challenges, we firmly believe that this decision will ultimately allow us to provide a more comprehensive service to all our clients in the long run.

The journey from iLet to brikk haus has been an exciting one.

We’ve evolved from a small business primarily focused on lettings, to a comprehensive estate agency service provider, while sticking to our roots of offering a professional and highly personalised service.  And we can’t wait to see what’s next!

Thank you for being a part of our journey.
