The head of the award-winning lettings department at land and property agent Moore Allen & Innocent has been promoted to the position of Associate.

Theresa Troupe - whose eight-strong department manages more than 300 rented homes across the Cotswolds and North Wiltshire on behalf of country estates, property investors, and private landlords - has been given a seat in at the boardroom table.

The promotion means the department's voice is heard at the very top of the business and involved in strategic business decisions.

Theresa, who has worked in property lettings for over 20 years, joined Moore Allen in 2017 and was promoted to head of the lettings department in 2022.

High demand and lower supply are leading to a buoyant lettings market.

Typical rents for a three-bedroom property are in the range of £1,300 to £1,400 a month, and large detached country properties remain popular. One such property - with six double bedrooms, landscaped gardens and a tennis court - is currently being offered for £5,500 a month.

Theresa joins existing Associates Amy McDonald, head of rural sales and valuations, and Richard Dell, head of the commercial property department.

Amy looks after the sale of farms and farmland which is reaching record values and land in the Cotswolds and north Wiltshire exceeding the national average.

Meanwhile, Richard is helping commercial property owners to navigate a changing market.

Among the more striking commercial premises on offer in Cirencester is The Old Museum, which offers over 3,400 sq ft of accommodation over two floors.

Theresa said: "The lettings department is an important part of the business, and I'm delighted to have been invited to represent the department at board level."

Managing partner Mark Halliwell said: "We are delighted to promote Theresa to the position of Associate.

"Not only have Theresa and her team continued to build on the success of our lettings department, but Theresa provides a fresh approach to help drive the business forward."
