Both Julian and Penny bring a wealth of skills and experience to their roles as LBV property managers. Julian read European Business for his degree, which gave him an insight into the cultural and economic diversity within the EU. He has skills in problem solving and supplier management, and has worked on projects with tight deadlines, fixed budgets and individual client specifications. Penny has trained as a teacher, often teaching French to older children and taking part in many day trips around Dieppe and Rouen. She is motivated and good at thinking on her feet.
Together they have about 50 years of experience in home renovation. Julian prefers the practical side of carpentry and wall demolition, while Penny enjoys painting, wallpapering, colour selection and finishing touches. They are eager to offer these skills to their LBV clients.
“Penny and Julian provide a very professional and efficient service and any problems are dealt with promptly – in fact we now call them the rapid response team! We have peace of mind knowing our house is well looked after when we’re not there. Would highly recommend.”
Mark and Jill Downie, Staffordshire
“Thanks again for everything. We would be lost without you, especially as AirBnB came up with five bookings more than expected!”
Linda, Abu Dhabi
“We couldn’t have asked for a more delightful, conscientious and proactive couple to look after our place in France. Penny and Julian have excellent people skills and have developed very good relationships with local artisans resulting in work being done in our absence. We are delighted with the services they provide.”
