A night of glamour and success at the Property women awards!

I had the pleasure of the company of many lady landlords at last Thursday’s Women In Property awards in London. The DPS was one of the sponsors, so I dug out my tux and headed off to congratulate the many and deserved award winners. It never ceases to amaze me what lengths really good landlords and ladies will go to to help their tenants out. This year’s overall winner, Juliet Ashton-Taylor, even goes so far as to keep one of her rooms at a knock-down price for someone who needs a helping hand in putting their life back on track. Another lady, Fiona Macaskill, plants fruit trees and vegetables in the gardens of her properties for her tenants to use. We often hear about the ‘rogue’ side of the industry, but I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to spend some time listening to what the best landlords and letting agents do. Well done to all of this year’s winners. http://www.propertywomenawards.org.uk/winners2010.aspx
