"LiFE Residential is a company where the values are truly lived. Senior leaders are inspirational and people are developed and involved - it's an organisation you are proud of."
I moved to the UK from South Africa in 1997, and I’ve been working in the property industry ever since. I started out in the suburbs and then swapped to central London after our son left home to go to university. I completed my Masters Business Degree in 2000 and after that concentrated on the growth of LiFE Residential. As well as travelling the world, I enjoy skiing, golf and everything London has to offer. I also make my own Biltong (beef jerky but better). Since moving to London there are numerous places that could make my list of favourites, but for me, “The Royal Albert Hall” has to be number one. It’s an amazing building/venue and hosts world class shows and concerts all year round which I hope to attend many more of.
I’ve worked in the London residential letting & sales market since 1996 overseeing thousands of tenancies and sales for amazing clients located in over a hundred countries worldwide. My spare time is taken up with family, travel and theatre, but when in London, my favorite spots are standing on Waterloo Bridge, The View from the Shard, and Butlers Wharf.
I did a property degree in Land Management at university, and have been in property for the last 30 years, focusing on residential rentals, new builds, and investment. Before I joined LiFE in 2011 I worked as a development director at a leading serviced apartment company, and was responsible for their property portfolio. I enjoy all sports, being particularly active in cycling, golf, squash, and skiing, but I really love walking my dog Monty with my wife Jo. Marylebone High Street is one of my favourite London hotspots, with its great atmosphere, lovely restaurants and friendly vibe. Failing that, the A40 is pretty important to me as it helps me get to my home outside of London!
I joined LiFE in 2014, having worked in the London property market for over 12 years. LiFE has an amazing service driven culture, making it a pleasure to work here – as a constantly evolving company we are always ready to take on new challenges. I have met loads of interesting serial investors over the years and think the niche nature of our business makes what we do really exciting. In my spare time I love getting sporty, be it a tennis match, round of golf, or a skiing trip. I’m also a keen traveller. There are so many amazing places in London but Wimbledon Village is special to me as I spent a lot of time there when I was younger with my family.
I’ve been working in property and specifically lettings for 10 years now, starting out my career with a small, family run firm in Sheffield. I moved to London and LiFE Residential in 2012 and have been here ever since - they can’t get rid of me! Outside of work I’m a big Arsenal supporter and go to the games quite regularly. My favourite place in London is probably Upper Street - a mile long road in Islington lined with bars, cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops. It’s great for wandering down on the weekend, (plus it’s not far from the Arsenal stadium!)
Having joined the off-plan sales division of Galliard Homes in 2007, the exposure to the new build sector provided the perfect foundation for my role as Area Sales Manager here at LiFE. In my spare time I’m an avid golfer but my time on the course is limited as I generally have my hands full with my young daughter! We enjoy spending time in East London, particularly Shoreditch House, it’s very child friendly in the daytime, with great food and a rooftop pool, whilst being a great spot to enjoy a few drinks after dark.
Senior Team Leader
I started as a trainee property manager after completing my law degree. I have learnt so much during my time at LiFE -it’s the people that make this place a pleasure to work at. I enjoy eating, cooking and photography in my spare time, unleashing my creativity on the kitchen! My favourite place in London has to be standing on Waterloo bridge at night and looking out at the view.
Senior Team Leader
I started at LiFE in July 2014, and have already learnt so much in my time here. In property management we are always dealing with a lot of people and no two days are the same, but it’s been a great role for developing problem solving skills and initiative! Outside of work I enjoy watching and playing rugby, as well as visiting the gym and going out to dinner with friends. I can’t name a favourite place in London – I love this city because it has so many diverse places to eat and drink and there is always something to do. I also enjoy seeing new buildings being constructed and how they are developed and changed against the city’s backdrop so quickly.
Head of Property Management
I worked in serviced apartments for 6 years and then moved to Galliard in 2012 before coming to work at LiFE. In my free time I am a keen golfer, not great at it, but I try! My favourite spot in London is standing on Tower Bridge, looking south, and seeing the shard standing behind the Tower of London. I think the juxtaposition between old and new is pretty amazing.
I started my career at LiFE as a Trainee Client Account Manager after finishing a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Accounting. I enjoy working for LiFE, because of the people who work alongside me and the opportunities provided to us. It is a pleasure to come to work because the environment is friendly and I feel my work is appreciated. I use every spare moment to travel, mostly hiking in the mountains and exploring new countries and different cultures. My favourite place in London is Richmond Hill; you get a beautiful view of the park and it feels as if you are somewhere in the countryside.
I started working at LiFE Residential back in March 2017 with no prior experience in the industry which was a little daunting. Since then I have learnt so much due to the amazing people I've had the pleasure of working alongside which is just one of the many reasons why I like working for LiFE. They have truly helped me develop into the role im in today. I haven’t lived in London for too long so in my spare time I still play tourist and try and venture to different areas of London. I don’t think I’ll ever know London inside out but one area I love is Shoreditch where you may find me on most weekends enjoying the food, nightlife and meeting the different people I run into there. I also have a keen interest in photography and if possible, take my camera with me to all the areas of London I go.
Head of Finance
I joined LiFE in 2004 as Head of Finance. My main responsibility includes overseeing the in- house finance team and coordinating the firms reporting and financial strategic objectives. Prior to joining LiFE I worked for BDO Baker Street (London) in the wealth management division as the company accountant. Beyond my desk job I spend time playing bridge (just started) and relearning the clarinet.
Head of Client Accounts
I have been with LiFE Residential for 7 years now, and love dealing with all the clients we have in all the many corners of the world. My favourite thing to do is spend time with my nephews, but if I’m not, you can often find me whipping up a mean cake or engrossed in a good book. My favourite thing about London is its amazing landmarks. Being from South Africa, I still feel a sense of wonder and excitement when I’m in central London – it genuinely never gets old.
I enjoy working at LiFE Residential and arriving early to see what the day has in store for me and the Asset Management team. There is always something new and challenging that makes the day interesting. In my spare time my great love is music, mainly classical, but I enjoy all types of music. This can often be accompanied with a glass of fine Burgundy wine and maybe even a barbecue! Rugby also forms a big part of my life and is enjoyed by my whole family. My favourite place to visit in London is the Royal Albert Hall where I have experienced some excellent concerts and seen some fantasticly talented people perform. The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden is also one of my favourite venues in the city.
My experience at LiFE has been eventful to say the least. Having started in client relations, I quickly progressed into Business Development, and then into Operations and now also Office Management, covering both administration and facilities. LiFE have supported me in every step of my journey by providing me with relevant training and qualifications. I love that my role at LiFE constantly grows and evolves; no two days are the same for me.
Out of work I enjoy cycling, running and red wine with friends or family.
My favourite place in London has to be Richmond, it has everything from the quaint little pubs on the side streets, to the restaurants along the river, the park up on the hill and the great shops along the high street. I spend most of my time there on the weekends.
I did a master’s degree in Human Resources Management and Organisational Analysis, and have always had a passion to work with people. Before I joined LiFE in 2019 I had worked in human resources in both higher education and the hospitality industry. I love my role and I enjoy the fast dynamic of LiFE! Outside of work I like attending Royal Albert Hall events, exploring new restaurants and spending time with family and friends.
My favourite spot in London is standing next to the Royal Observatory at the top of the hill in Greenwich Park, looking down at the Old Royal Naval College, and across the river at Canary Wharf, enjoying the contrast between the old and modern buildings.
Head of Marketing
After 10+ years in TV/news journalism in Lithuania, Denmark and the U.S., my LiFE took an unexpected turn and I joined LiFE and the dynamic London property market. It turned out to be a challenging but fun journey, and I have been leading LiFE’s talented Marketing team ever since. My favourite after work activity is sleep… But since everyone else is doing more active things, I have to follow the trend and say I do appreciate a good punching and kicking session in Fight Club. The winner of my most-loved London spot goes to… oh wait, it’s not even a spot. It’s the walk from London Bridge to Tower Bridge by the River Thames early in the morning, accompanied by a cup of coffee which I get at a local family run place. I love seeing how the area transforms throughout the day: in the morning it belongs to true Londoners, quietly jogging by the river bank in their thoughts, and in the afternoon it’s absolutely taken over by amazed tourists. It’s a place where local meets the global, and that’s just what LiFE in London is like for me.
I joined LiFE in 2014 after moving to London from my home city of Dublin, Ireland. I’d worked as a graphic designer in various industries for 6 years but the property sector was brand new to me so I welcomed the challenge. And what better place to get to know it a little better than London? Since moving here I’ve really come to love the lifestyle, there’s always something fun to do so it’s never boring. When I’m not designing I like going out to see live music, comedy and art exhibitions so London is certainly the place to be!
