Say hello to… Lisa Fisher – Lettings Manager

Lisa Fisher

Lisa Fisher

It’s nearly six and a half years ago since I was offered an exciting career change with Accommodation Windsor Limited.  Initially, I had contacted the company for help with short term accommodation whilst I searched for a job locally.  Having spent time visiting friends, I had grown to love Windsor and was keen to relocate.  Whilst I was on the website looking at the gorgeous apartments, I noticed the company was advertising for a Lettings Manager.  A few days after submitting my CV, I was in the office being interviewed and was shown around a couple of fabulous properties that the company managed.  Directors Nigel and Georgia took me out for lunch and over Tapas I was offered the job… I think Nigel had drunk his wine too quickly!  Within the same week I found a great place to rent and all of a sudden my life was heading in a whole new direction.

Over the next few weeks, I had to learn as much as possible about Windsor & Eton and all of the Landlords and their properties so that I was well informed and able to match customers with the right accommodation to suit their needs.  When I first started with the company we had around 25 properties, this has now more than doubled to a portfolio in excess of 60 – ranging from studios to 4-bed houses.  It has been fantastic to be a part of Accommodation Windsor’s growth and see the company develop in every direction; from system development, an ever-expanding team and fabulous property improvements.  Knowing that I have contributed to the growth of the business is also incredibly rewarding.

So what’s next for Accommodation Windsor Limited?  Well, with a refreshing approach to service that brings customers back to stay with us time and time again and with the exciting property improvements currently taking place, I can only envisage the company continuing to grow in an even more corporate, professional and fresh direction.  Within the next year, we will take on new properties, we’ll need bigger offices  and possibly a bigger team too.  I think Accommodation Windsor is a great place to work and the Company is fun and innovative which is why we continue to grow year on year.

 

Royal Ascot Racing

GEORGIE-FORD

A Blog by Georgie Ford

With less than a week to go, Royal Ascot is once again upon us.  This year the international race event takes place between Tuesday 17th June and Saturday 21st June with up to 300,000 people attending over the five days.  Having been around since 1711, Ascot is one of the most popular race meetings in the world with prize money estimated at a whopping £4.5 million.  Each day, Her Majesty the Queen and her guests arrive by horse-drawn landaus from Windsor Castle and circle the Parade Ring.

Whether you are an avid race-goer or just looking for the perfect excuse to get dressed up and sip champagne, Royal Ascot is the perfect day out.  Tickets are priced to suit most budgets giving everybody the opportunity to watch the Royal Procession whichever enclosure they are in.  The Grandstand refurbishment in 2006 has proved popular, with plenty of places to eat and drink and a great view of the action.

Outrageous hatsFashion is one of the biggest talking points of Royal Ascot with everyone looking out for the most outrageous hat of the day.  The press report widely on the best-dressed throughout the week but especially on Ladies’ Day.  While the Silver Ring has a more relaxed dress code, entrance to the Grandstand has become stricter in recent years; strapless dresses and mini dresses are no longer permitted and fascinators must be worn.

Please click here to purchase your tickets for Royal Ascot this June.  If you miss out on Royal Ascot there are racing events, fireworks displays and concerts taking place at Ascot Racecourse throughout the year.

National Puppy Day…!

Poor old Ruby Tuesday, New boy Rads is driving her potty!

Poor old Ruby Tuesday, New boy Rads is driving her potty!

This Friday 21st March is National Puppy Day… as if we need a special day to celebrate our pampered pooches!  Boo Radley is the latest member of our team having been recently recruited to assist Ruby Tuesday with Security Detail (mainly snoozing in the corner of the office…)  Radley is driving his big sister a little bit potty by chasing her tail and stealing all her favourite toys but we’re sure she’ll have him whipped into shape in no time at all.

Radley is a Dasher (Miniature Schnauzer and Dachshund cross.)  Now 3 months old, Radley has had his jabs and is all signed up ready to start puppy training classes.  He is super cute and can’t wait to start in his new role at Accommodation Windsor Limited (probably) :)

What makes Windsor so special…?

signsWith Windsor Castle as a backdrop and within 20 miles of London it ticks a lot of boxes location wise.  Add in the history, charm, Royal connections, fabulous shopping, tourist attractions, rail and road links, high employment, low-crime, great schools (both state and private) and you start to build up a picture of what draws people to this unique area.

Windsor has a thriving social scene with bars, restaurants and clubs for all age groups.  It’s big on families too so really easy to make new friends and settle the kids in.  There are lots of local attractions including a Leisure Centre with swimming pool, fabulous National Trust properties, Royal Parks, its own Theatre, International Racing and Legoland theme park and all just a hop and a skip from London with all of its shopping, activity and employment opportunities.

The town centre is delightful, nestling on the River Thames with stunning swans, summer boating, kayaking, river trips and a Duck Tour - it’s fun to live in a tourist town and never have to leave.  The pavements can get a little congested in the peak season, but equally there is a vibrancy and excitement to living in Windsor; and knowing people travel from all over the world to visit your town.

15CC-sofa-englandLots of clients use Accommodation Windsor as a stop gap, whether relocating from overseas or closer to home, its a chance to settle in and have a look around the area before taking the plunge and buying or renting something longer term.  With prices from just £595 pw for a 2-bed town centre apartment, properties are available to let from a minimum of one week for as long as you want to stay. 

Our stylish and well-located Properties are fully furnished right down to the garlic press and prices are inclusive of all utilities meaning that you can move on when you’re ready to do so.

Our helpful and knowledgeable team can also advise on schools, doctors’ surgeries and all the essential local amenities that you need to know about to make life a little simpler.  Windsor is a relatively small town and a hugely welcoming community and you will find lots of networks and support groups to help you and your family settle in.
