With age comes experience and we’re fortunate to have both in abundance. We’re also proud to be staunchly independent with our residents firmly at the heart of every decision we make.
Due to much hard work and endeavour, we’re proud of managing a large portfolio of homes including retirement housing schemes and mixed use developments. As a successful and established brand, in turn we’ve forged links with successful and established Developers, as well as commercial Freeholders. As part of our team you’ll help us to maintain the excellent relationships we enjoy with both clients and residents. Both being of equal importance.
When visiting the three bears’ house Goldilocks was insistent that her chair be neither too big nor too small, but just the right size. Well Goldilocks was onto something in our opinion! Companies that are too big can’t maintain an adequate service level, and those that are too small can’t invest in the necessary systems to support their staff. We ensure that the number of properties we manage is in proportion to our staff numbers. Maintaining this equilibrium means that our standards of service and professionalism are never at risk, and that our Property Managers have a portfolio size that is manageable and ‘just right’.
As you would expect from a brand with our longevity, our reach extends across the UK and we have several regional offices. So it’s essential that our staff have impeccable communication and customer service capabilities. We invest in our staff to hone their skills, as quite rightly, they are our most valuable asset. As such, they are trained in all aspects of Property Management, both in current legislation and good practice. We’re certain that you’ll be happy with us. A job for life doesn’t only exist in fairy tales at our firm.
