This morning The Barnet Group officially launched Bumblebee, an estate agent ready to create a buzz in the London lettings market.

Bumblebee builds on years of combined experience to deliver a professional and transparent service to private tenants and landlords.

The online-only agency offers an efficient and reliable service, with all fees made clear up front, ensuring landlords and tenants are not hit with any shock bills.

Bumblebee is uniquely placed within the market as a subsidiary of The Barnet Group, a local authority trading company owned wholly by Barnet Council. All profits from Bumblebee will go towards delivery of The Barnet Group’s services.

Speaking at the launch on 22 May, Group Director of Growth and Development, said: “Today marks a huge landmark for The Barnet Group.

“Bumblebee’s clear, upfront fee structure sets us apart from the competition and gives landlords and tenants complete peace of mind” he continued.

“Our new estate agent will deliver the high levels of customer service and commitment to quality that is expected from the Group.”

May 22 also marks the first anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing tragedy. The bee has been a symbol of Manchester’s productivity since the Industrial Revolution, and has gained particular significance since the bombing. As a mark of respect for Manchester and its brave people, Bumblebee is making a donation to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
