Introducing our Finance Manager John Linney...
I joined New View Residential in May 2015 as Finance Manager. The last seven years have seen a period of steady growth with our annual financial turnover increasing by over 60%, our managed property portfolio increasing by over 40% and our splendid team having grown from two to seven wonderful folk. It is and has been fun but it’s not always been easy, and we’ve had to work with the growing pains of an expanding operation and systems over the years.
Prior to this I had worked as a Director and Property Manager for Windhorse Trading, having relocated from London to Cambridge with my family in 2012. My last role in London was managing Bodywise Yoga and Natural Health in Bethnal Green; financial pressures led to its demise but it had been one of the original such centres in the UK. I am a Fellow of the School for Social Entrepreneurs and have worked in small businesses for the last 30 years. Originally qualified in IT, I moved on from an academic career to be more active and hands-on in the worlds of business and social enterprise. I am ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order and in my ‘spare’ time I am a tai chi instructor.
The team at New View Residential are strongly motivated to bring the values of honesty, professionalism and care to all aspects of our work – this is what defines us as a lettings agent. We want to give our landlords and tenants the best possible service and sustain positive relationships with all our partners. I value this highly and wouldn’t be here otherwise. We are only human, but personally I believe we do pretty well and we are always striving to improve our services. The lettings industry is always improving, but there are still some unscrupulous agents out there and we sometimes have to work hard to reinforce high levels of trust in what can be a challenging environment. We regularly receive positive feedback and five-star reviews from our clients, so we seem to be on the right track (but there is always more to learn … ).
If you are considering letting a property do get in touch. We are letting agents based in Cambridge city centre, managing properties in Cambridge and Cambridgeshire, and also providing letting services to landlords in other parts of the UK. We will be delighted to explore how we may be able to help you.
