Ben Coates BSc Hons

Ben Coates BSc Hons

Senior Property Manager

01865 727272

After completing an RICS accredited Property Finance and Investment Degree at Nottingham Trent University a good few years ago, Ben decided to pursue a career in lettings and has built up a great deal of knowledge and valuable experience in this area. However, keen to progress even further and become professionally qualified as a chartered surveyor, Ben has now moved from our Lettings team to our Asset Management team where his considered and professional approach will undoubtedly be a great asset. Outside work Ben enjoys hiking and recently completed a trip through the Alps for charity.

Zac Payne

Zac Payne

Assistant Property Manager

01865 727272

Zac joined us from the leisure industry and has been able to transfer his skills to property management with ease. Eager to learn and somewhat unflappable, Zac’s level headed and practical thinking is a great asset to our team. Outside work, Zac is a cycle speedway champion having represented Great Britain at various events around the world. His home club is at Horspath where he is very much involved.

Karen Baker

Property Management Accountant

01865 727272

Karen has a wealth of experience in all things accounts and is a fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants.  A Scot through and through, her no nonsense, honest and straightforward approach is an enormous asset to our team. Karen has not only embraced a change in our accounts and property management software to move the company forward, but copes admirably with everything the property managers challenge her with on a daily basis.  Outside work Karen enjoys rural living with her family and always has a project on the go.
