Property Manager, Tintagel Property Co Ltd
Debra's professional bio / interests
Accidentally fell into property management in 1999 and have (almost) loved every moment. Constantly learning and constantly trying to improve on my knowledge. Now managing 22 properties on behalf of two landlords mainly let full-time workers although we do have a couple of students and a retiree. Requires a lot of patience (which I've learned over the years!) and tenacity. My wonderful bosses have the same ethos as me which is integrity, loyalty and empathy. Am responsible for all aspects of property management from sourcing tenants, handling maintenance and managing the finances.
I’d like help with…
Understanding how we can move forward with energy improvements without it breaking the bank. The biggest challenge at the moment is the speed with which the latest recommendations are being rolled out and particularly during a pandemic.
An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…
I was diagnosed with ME in 2018. It saps you of your energy and has proved a challenge because, as anyone in property management knows, you cannot predict your workload.
A career highlight
Qualifying as a Certified Practitioner through the CIH (Chartered Institute of Housing) in 2018.
