Freemont Property Managers grow from Strength to Strength


Freemont Property Managers based in Hampshire, start 2018 with a strong portfolio of new retirement developments as well as open market developments. Kevin Barr, Operations Director, explains “During 2017 we took on several RTM (Right To manage) developments in various parts of the UK, from Avonlea Court in Bristol, to Fairwater Gardens in Evesham.  These RTM companies exercised their right to appoint the management company of their choice that they thought best looked after their needs.  Having interviewed several companies, they finally selected us based on our combined 80 years’ experience of successfully managing retirement properties”.


Already in 2018 Freemont have won the management of other retirement developments in Worcestershire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, and Bristol to name but a few.  As the residents of many retirement developments realise they do have a voice in how they are managed and choose to exercise that voice, those management companies that are failing to provide a good service are now being removed.  And as Kevin points out “we have a full diary of presentations to residents’ groups throughout the UK over the next 3 months”.

Set up 4 years ago, Freemont has a board of 4 Directors all steeped in experience in the management of retirement properties throughout the UK. From working with many of the top companies in the industry as well as serving on key trade bodies such as ARHM (Association of Retirement Housing Managers) they have moved with the market in their words “from the sometimes anonymous face of a large corporate” to get back to the Key Principles of “Excellent Customer Care”, as shown by the many letters of thanks shown on the web site –

Freemont Property Managers are fully owned by the Directors and are not managed or controlled by an unapproachable corporate board, like many management companies – so “The buck stops with us” – Kevin Barr, Operations Director.

The last word goes to Kevin “We have nearly 4000 residents in around 85 developments UK wide and growing, as well as over 60 staff nationwide…….not bad for 4 years…..that has to be testimony to our philosophy of “Excellent Customer Care”

Notes to Editor – Freemont Property Managers are based in Pennington, Lymington, Hampshire 01590 610555.  Set up 4 years ago, by some of the top executive directors of what was then Peverel Group now known as First Port. With a staff of around 60, they are growing rapidly benefitting from the varying quality of management companies within the retirement property market, and the resultant discontent of the residents.  They are approached by residents direct, RTM directors and also landlords, Housing Associations and Developers all with a view to consider changing from inefficient management companies.
