CapRes’ founders, Tim Holden and Charlie Miller, who have a combined 30 years’ experience in the PRS sector, head up Cording’s new PRS platform. They will be joined at Cording by CapRes’ lettings expert, Katy Jones.

Between them, they have acquired and managed over £1 billion of new development in over 25,000 residential plots.

They are experienced PRS professionals in an emerging sector where knowledge and experience are at a premium.
