Both Tony and Maria bring a wealth of skills and experience to their roles as LBV property managers. Tony had a 30 year career in the Metropolitan Police where he became an expert in financial investigations. He travelled extensively in the UK and internationally to participate in surveys and provide training on financial investigations. Before leaving the police, he obtained a Master’s degree in Financial Investigation and Financial Crime.
Maria’s professional skills were honed in the beauty and retail industries. In the latter, she led store opening teams responsible for preparing 30,000 square foot stores to open within two weeks. She is highly skilled at working on time, liaising with artisans and organizing people.
Together, they offer their property management services to clients in the Charente where they provide reliable, quality services to local absentee landlords.
“Tony & Maria are a joy to work with, we feel completely reassured that they are providing the best professional service we could hope for. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They always provide the highest standards of care and maintenance for our house, they anticipate what is required and they provide us with total peace of mind. In addition they have a great network of contacts that have been invaluable to us in France, for example, dealing with tax issues and insurance. We would highly recommend Tony and Maria as we know we are in very safe hands.” David & Karen Webb, Charente Maritime
“When we first talked of having a place in France I was rather nervous about leaving our property unoccupied and unmaintained for long periods of time. It has been a real godsend to find such a friendly and helpful couple to help us both maintain our property in Charente Maritime, and our peace of mind when we are elsewhere! It is not just the excellent house maintenance and gardening service, or pool care, or the mine of useful local information, or their helping to find the good local plumbers and builders that we needed it is their eagerness to meet our every need that makes their service exceptional. The excellent hot slow-cooked casserole waiting in the kitchen for our arrival on a cold December evening; the willingness to receive an order for a baby cot for our newly arrived granddaughter, to deliver it ready here and even set it up; the speedy response to an emergency call; and always a feeling that they are ever ready to extend a helping hand. It is a pleasure to know Tony and Maria, and we are grateful for their care.” Jenny & Steve, Ealing, London
