Celebrating our 8th year in 2015 we are a successful Residential Sales, Letting and Management Company, owned and run by Marilla Garland, a well known agent in the Cambridge area.  Our commitment is to provide a service to our clients in a sound, personal and professional manner...

Taking lettings one step further for tenants with our aim to take the stress and strain away from moving in
Marilla Garland

Marilla first went into Residential Letting and Management in 1989 in London and came back to Cambridge in early 1994.  Having realised early on in her career that looking after other people’s properties for them brings a huge amount of satisfaction, she has concentrated since 1989 on providing a service that clients really expect.  Marilla Garland Property Management Limited is in Marilla’s opinion the best way for her to offer this continued service to the market place in Cambridge.  For many, Marilla, will be best known for her years with Hockeys, which was prior to being bought out by JSM, one of the oldest independent Estate Agents in Cambridge. Marilla spent 5 years there, building up a very sound and respected Residential Letting and Management Department.
It is vital that when we come and visit your property for the first time, you are able to benefit from our many years of experience and for this reason, Marilla carries out all valuations. It is not just a time to talk about what the property should achieve on the letting market, but a time for discussion over marketing tactics, preparation of the property for letting out and also agreeing on exactly the right sort of tenant for the property.
We are able to draw on many years of experience and ensure that we have the infrastructure and systems in place to offer our clients a first class service.

Don Wheeler

Don has been with the firm from the day Marilla founded it and knows every inch of the business. Again, another name known to many in the property world in Cambridge.   Don’s customer care skills and attention to detail are second to none. Don started as an estate agent many years ago in Cambridge with Connells Estate Agents.  This put him in good stead to be sought after to further his career in Catlings Independent Estate Agents.  It was here that he became a Member of the National Association of Estate Agents. He honed his customer relation skills in this busy City Office and was again head hunted by Hockeys Estate Agents where he worked before joining Marilla Garland Property Management Limited.

Working at Hockeys was an ideal foundation as one of Cambridge's most respected Estate Agents to firmly cement himself as one of Cambridge's top rate Senior Negotiators. His firm belief in quality customer care and attention to detail plus his honest, hard working ethic naturally put him in good stead when he moved across to Residential Letting and Management. There is no doubt that his wealth of contacts does benefit our clients.

Charlie Garland

With a steady growth in the portfolio, Charlie joined the team and has brought a further element of experience to the company. After a career in the army, Charlie ran his own property maintenance company for many years and therefore is an ideal person for signing off works carried out by the contractors we use on behalf of our landlords. Charlie is in charge of carrying out all the quarterly property inspections and ensuring that his findings are actioned and reported back to clients.

Melanie Jarvis

Melanie joined us in September 2011 fresh from university after having completed a degree in psychology from the University of Bath. Mel has been trained up over the months and is now overseeing the day to day property maintenance and carries out all the inventory preparation and inventory check outs on properties we manage. Mel also gets involved with some of the property viewings and so you may meet her either whilst she is out and about or speak with her in the office while she sorts out a maintenance issue.

Mike Lawford

Mike joined us in a part time capacity in early 2011 to assist with the daily viewings on all the properties available to rent on the market. Mike has been involved with Farm & Estate management, since leaving Agricultural College in 1967. His early career was spent in Hampshire, before moving to Cambridgeshire in 1976 to manage a privately owned Estate.
Since 1997, he has been a self employed consultant, which for six years included the management of a large residential property portfolio for an Estate in West Suffolk. This included the management of the maintenance team, together with organising the refurbishment & letting of properties.


Will Garland

Joining the family firm having left College in the summer of 2012, Will has become our newest member of staff in a trainee position to learn all the "ins and outs" of residential letting and management. No doubt if you phone the office you will get to speak with Will or in time meet him on property viewings.
