Melanie Bowen - Manager

As Manager it’s Melanie’s job to ensure the smooth running of the business and that includes everything from making sure all our properties comply with the ever increasing number of legal requirements and dealing with the many and varied problems that can arise during a day’s work for either our tenants or landlords, to making sure that the tea bags don’t run out.

Melanie’s work experience has always been within a customer service background and for several years it was a joke with her friends that she was aiming to work in every business along Grantham’s High Street, having worked for the Electricity Board, Gas Board, WHSmith, Goldings, Nationwide and Dixons all of which were on the High Street in those days, however since joining Hill and Hill Property Management in 1999 (now EMPM) she has enjoyed working in lettings so much that she has not changed jobs since!

Melanie is a landlord herself and works on the principal that every property at EMPM is given the care and attention she would devote to her own houses. The principle of offering clean, well maintained properties and ensuring repairs are attended to promptly, means that tenants are happy. We understand that while the landlord is the client, a happy tenant will tend to stay longer in a property, look after it as they would their own property and pay the rent on time. A Happy Tenant means a Happy Landlord. As a fully qualified member of ARLA, Melanie’s knowledge of both the lettings business and Grantham means she is the obvious choice for you and your property.

Melanie grew up in Grantham and has lived and worked in the Grantham area for many years, so she is well equipped to answer any queries about the area. Married with 2 grown up children she is now enjoying all things being a grandparent entails! Melanie enjoys horse riding and walking her dog and can be seen on the local bridleways or footpaths most evenings and weekends. When she’s not doing that, her other passion is gardening, however when it’s too cold, wet or dark to do the outside stuff she enjoys reading and has rediscovered her knitting skills since becoming a grandma.

Why not give her a call and see how Melanie and her team can help you.

Lorna Maguire - Letting Administrator

Lorna has worked with the Grantham branch of EMPM Ltd for over 15 years. She enjoys working with the public and has various roles within the office, mainly dealing with new applications for prospective tenants and seeing it through to their move in; this involves referencing, completing the paperwork and keeping the Landlord informed of the progress and happy. By being very careful in her tenant selection means she only has nice ones!

Occasionally Lorna can be found in the accounts department when the need arises, helping with queries and payment runs too.

Now Lorna’s daughter has flown the nest she now needs to find a new hobby/outlet to fill her time up, other than her usual Friday night wine club! Lorna unlike some of her work colleagues openly admits hating going to the gym but can be found most days quite happily walking her crazy Whippet.

If you would like to consider being one of our nice tenants please do not hesitate to give her a call.

Kerry Morse - Lettings Negotiator

Kerry joined EMPM in January 2020 –  so is the ‘new girl’ in the office!  Kerry relocated to Stamford from Southampton in November 2019 and previously worked for David Lloyd Leisure.  Her role at EMPM is to carry out viewings, meet prospective tenants, carry out move-ins and move outs with tenants, completing inventory checks and meter readings, testing fire alarms etc to ensure that both tenants and landlords are kept up to date at all times.
