Prior to setting up Quealy & Co Residential Lettings I had a very enjoyable 28 years working for the HSBC Group in London and overseas. I left my position of Financial Controller in 2002 and finally cut my working ties with HSBC in late 2004. In the meantime, I had started working in the property industry, and when Dee Quealy approached me in 2005 to jointly set up the Lettings business, it was an opportunity not to be missed.
The industry has come a long way since my time at HSBC, with far more regulation and accountability. I saw some of the excesses of the corporate world, so I welcome these changes with open arms.
We have a well-qualified and extremely experienced team. We are as flexible as we can be to meet the demands of our landlord and tenant clients, but we stay fully focused on the regulations that we must adhere to. Trust me: it’s sometimes tedious – but very necessary!
As a local boy, currently living about 300 yards from the house I was born in, I hope my local knowledge has proved an asset to our clients over the years.
