                                        Your best Property Management tip?
                                        Always be engaged and ready for any situation. Treat clients as you would want to be treated. Someone’s home is my responsibility, and therefore 100% attention is required.
                                        Who would play you in a film and why?
                                        Angelina Jolie as we do have a lot in common. Ambition would be the first reason.
                                        Favourite thing you like to do?
                                        Always learn something new.

                                                            I was born, raised and educated in South Africa before immigrating to the United Kingdom in January 2020. My passion for property started as a young child; witnessing both my father and stepfather working in Property Development and Construction, respectively. Many a weekend were spent on construction sites from a young age, and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
                                                            I obtained a BSc. (Honours) in Property Studies from the University of Cape Town in 2016, and going forward, I would like to obtain my IRPM Membership and RICS Chartership.

Here he gained experience managing small properties and offering a personal touch to his clients. As the size of properties he managed grew not only did he manage the bigger quantity of workload but more importantly was still able to hold on to the belief the client was still the most important part of managing a property and therefore still offering a service where they were listened to and their views where an integral part of the successful running of his previous place of work. We are fortunate that Andrew has joined us and brings with his experience and his ability to offer our clients a personal experience when being dealt with.

Prior to working in the Property Sector, Yasmin was studying Psychology whilst working within Childcare and Education as a Recruiter for Teachers and Nursery Staff. Yasmin has enjoyed the transition and is eager to progress in the Property Sector.

Not quite sure about something? Ask! No question is a silly question. The staff want nothing more than to see happy colleagues, happy clients and finish the day with a sense of accomplishment.

                                                                                                        Your best Property Management tip? Address the problem as it arises. Insurers are less willing to cover the costs if you put your problem on hold and let matters get worse.

Not exactly my doppelgänger, but she is a brilliant actress who has always understood the assignment. I trust her to take my character and run with it.

I especially love roller skating and learning new tricks (may even become the next Tony Hawk)!
