Lettings is our business, not just part of it!

This month Lorna Maguire celebrates 12 years at East Midlands Property Management. She joined the firm in January 2007 as a letting administrator and is based at the firm’s Grantham office.

Lorna enjoys working with the public and has various roles within the office, mainly dealing with new applications for prospective tenants. She also works from time to time in the accounts department.

Being involved from the start of a tenant’s application and seeing it through to their move in helps Lorna know who her tenant is. Her role involves, referencing, completing the paperwork and keeping the landlord informed of the progress.

Lorna says “Over the years I have got to know our landlords, some of whom have been with us for over 20 years, and I find it rewarding when the new tenant takes care of a property, meaning we have a happy tenant as well as a happy landlord.”

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