I’m constantly surprised about some of the things I see when I’m carrying out routine inspections in the communal areas of buildings and developments I manage. In one tenement, there was a framed picture of Elvis Presley hanging on the close wall, and in another, a lonely sausage sitting on the stairs. We do tweet about these things, as they make us laugh!

The diversity in my job, and my constantly growing property management knowledge. I’m sitting the IRPM Associate Exam in just over a month, which is exciting.
