As we say goodbye to Josie, our current Head of Lettings, who will be leaving next week to move to New York with her husband. We welcome a new Head of Lettings, Kirsty Nightingale. Kirsty comes to YPC with 7 years experience of working in Lettings Management at a senior level. She was previously responsible for establishing a busy lettings office and recruiting/training her own team, and managed circa 400 properties. Here’s a few words from Kirsty herself….
Hi, I am Kirsty Nightingale, the new Head of Lettings at Ezytrac Property Management.
I have been involved in lettings/property for nearly 8 years now, starting at the bottom and working my way up to Manage Belvoir in Sleaford, Lincolnshire.
I decided that I needed a new direction and more of a challenge and am very excited that YPC will be able to offer me these. My current role is very customer driven from either tenants or landlords and, at times very trying with wanting to please all parties concerned! I will always be fair to each party and have no issue with telling either landlord or tenant that what they are requesting is not legal or feasible, a couple of ex tenants have now returned to Belvoir as landlords which is great from my point of view as I must have done something right.
I have completed several courses in leadership and management whilst at Belvoir but am looking forward to gaining more qualifications at Ezytrac. Brett has already committed me to doing my course with the Guild of Professional Estate Agents. I have also been on quite a few in house courses through Belvoir covering the law of lettings and various others lettings/property related topics.
I recently married Mark who is a Flight Sgt in the RAF and I have two teenage children of my own and a step daughter. During my down time I love to “glamp” posh way of camping, which is where I will be most weekends in the better weather, I love the freedom and merriment of glamping.
I am the treasurer of Washingborough Youth Centre which we opened in the summer of 2009 for children aged 11-16, we bake, play games, hold quizzes and take part in local fates to raise money for the Youth Centre.One of the reasons that I decided to take part in setting up the Youth Centre was that I was very aware that there was nothing locally for my children (however they have now decided that it’s not cool to hang out with mum) teenagers eh!
Right I think that I have waffled quite enough and hopefully I have not bored you all too much. I can’t wait to meet all my new colleagues and to meet and work with many of you, the clients of Ezytrac!
Take care and see you all soon
