Dabell & Co, new Isle of Wight Letting Agents, opened its doors for business on Monday, following a fun filled launch event a couple of days earlier.
Trisha Dabell, the owner, finally took the plunge and started her own business after a lifetime of working for other people. The company is based in very pink offices in Avenue Road, Freshwater, so much so that passers-by have started popping in to say how much it brightens up the road.
Their logo is a flamingo, not for any particular reason – Trisha just likes pink! Visitors to the opening event enjoyed free tea and cakes and were entertained by award winning magician Huxley, who amazed with his pink-themed trickery before cutting a ribbon, pink of course, to officially open the office.
As well as providing property management and letting services, the company will be helping local charities by giving five per cent of their profits to The Wight Brainy Bunch and the Coastwatch team at the Needles.
Trisha said: “We had lots of lovely people come along to meet us and brought along gifts and flowers. Huxley’s magic was very popular and we made some great connections with prospective tenants, landlords and local contractors which we will be following up.
“We have some special offers for Landlords throughout August and would be happy to chat to anybody thinking of letting their property or looking for somewhere to live.”
