Staff Updates & News roundup
Despite the never ending uncertainty over Brexit and the impending likelihood of a general election, here at Portfolio Properties it is business as usual! July and August were exceptionally busy months, with a sharp increase on last year with the number of new tenants moving into properties over the summer.
As well as this, we were delighted to welcome on board some new members to our team. Jenny Chung joined us in May as a Lettings Coordinator. Jenny recently graduated from Brookes University and looks after all our new applicants, arranging viewings and is responsible for all the new contracts. Zoe Moore joined us in June as Lettings Administrator and has recently moved from London to Oxfordshire. Being a landlord herself with a portfolio of property in West London Zoe has a good understanding of lettings and is responsible for all our renewal contracts. Finally, Rachel Rowland has taken over as our Property Management and Maintenance Coordinator. Rachel being Oxford born and bred has an excellent knowledge of the local area and started her career at HSBC before taking a break to commit to a young family. In that time she completed a ‘Woman in Trades’ workshop which included learning new skills such as plastering, brick laying, carpentry and plumbing – which translates perfectly into managing our contractors and all things property maintenance. Rachel also supports Sarah in Finance. We are very pleased to have Jenny, Zoe and Rachel join the Portfolio team.
