The annual business awards organised by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce – one of the accredited nationwide British Chambers of Commerce – are a recognition and celebration of regional business success.

Adrian Sutherland, Smarter Rent Co-Founder commented "At Smarter Rent, we're committed to improving the rental market for everybody. Being a long term resident of the Borough and having recently moved our HQ here, we're delighted to have our contribution to the local area recognised.

"Smarter Rent exists to unlock possibilities through the power of homes. We are creating homes that are designed, equipped and serviced with renters in mind, and deliver a worry free investment for investors.

"We do this by combining best in class property sourcing, refurbishment, marketing and management all under one roof. This allows us to offer a seamless service to existing landlords who are looking for hassle-free management, investors who need guidance on which property to buy; and renters who are after a fully-furnished home and outstanding service.

"Since being founded five years ago, we have grown from a handful of properties to over 250 across Richmond, south west London and the home counties.

"We are thrilled to have won this award and look forward to working alongside the Commerce and other local companies to support the thriving independent business scene in Richmond."
