Kay Sondh, Property Manager

After completing my BSc (Hons) Business Studies & Information Technology Degree I worked in the City for IBM as a Project Manager for 10 years. I decided to take a career break to support my young family. My role as Property Manager and Administrative Support involves, liaising with landlords, tenants, contractors, and other team members to ensure successful processing of new lets, renewal of tenancies, inspections, licensing applications, and maintenance issues. Away from the office, I like to keep fit and visit the gym several times a week. I am a keen cook and like to experiment with fusion cooking, socialising with my friends, and spend quality time with my family.
