Navigating the Coronavirus and preparing your home for Spring


As the saying goes, you don’t need a rocket scientist to change a light bulb.

It can help though if you have a nuclear physicist, like our electrician George, from Bulgaria.

Together with his team, George recently changed the light bulbs in a client’s swimming pool at home in London.

The client – aghast at the quotes for the job from independent contractors – was more than happy for George to don his speedos, and with the help of his fellow Bulgarians, both change the flickering bulbs, and saved 95% off the bill.

No matter that George lost his footing and ended up soaked… a £5k job for £200 does wonders for client relations.

The majority of our customers say they feel less exposed to exploitation from their suppliers, as a result of retaining our services.

At this time of year our property management team usually start preparing for spring… pools, gardens and roof terraces are very much the focus of our attention.

This year of course it is different, and we are helping to mitigate the Coronavirus on behalf of our whole client group.

As a general policy, as of Tuesday 17th March our whole team has been working from home, although the office is manned by at least one of us each day.

Our property management team continues to be available 24/7, to support you in any matters relating to your properties, and to visit your home and support you where necessary.

As a reminder we offer the following services:

  • House sitting empty properties to ensure their security and operability
  • Deep cleaning and sanitisation services – to operating theatre standards
  • Food and prescription deliveries for those who cannot or would rather not leave the house
  • Access to private security solutions both intermittent and 24/7/365
  • Drop-in home security and functionality checks if you are overseas
  • Concierge solutions, transport ideas, care taking and janitorial services
