Staff spotlight: Anne Lakey

Anne Lakey is one of our long standing Property Managers. Here's what she had to say about her experiences.

What’s the most interesting part of your job?

We get to go out and see new properties and meet new people - students, contractors and owners. We're not confined to an office.

What’s the most challenging part of your job?

Mediating between students and owners regarding works or issues in the properties. Managing people's expectations can be quite interesting.

Can you name one significant change you’ve seen in the student housing sector over the past five years?

How quickly the standards of accommodation have changed, especially with the HMO Licensing which now affects houses of five or more residents.

How do you like to relax?

Walking and playing with my two dogs and I also like to do cross stitch.
