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, gaining 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 timescales, fixed budgets and individual client specifications. Penny trained as a Primary school teacher, often teaching French to the older children and taking part in many day-visits around Dieppe and Rouen. She is self-motivated and good at thinking on her feet.
Between them they have around fifty years’ experience at renovating houses. Julian prefers the practical ‘hands-on carpentry and demolishing walls’ side of things, while Penny likes painting, wallpapering, choosing colours and putting together the finishing touches. They are keen 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.”
