Meet the Team at Kilnstone
Since the 1960s my family has had involvement within the business world. Through this heritage, I’ve always had a spark that’s driven me to want to provide a beneficial service to those who are in need of guidance, in order to achieve the results that they desire.
After working in many industries from cleaning, admin, and corporate banking, I decided I wanted to develop myself and put the skills I have to use. From this, I found my passion through property & shortly discovered that I could utilise my artistic and creative ability, alongside my savvy business, social and analytical skills whilst doing deals.
After understanding there are several streams of income in the property business and the potential it has to support others, I knew that it was for me. Time is the most valuable asset, buying properties gives you that time.
When asked “Why property?”, it’s simple – it’s about creating cash flow from rentals and having different strategies for increasing cash flow and understanding the power of leverage.
I began my first business venture in 2006 – JL Lettings, from this I was eventually able to manage a portfolio of properties in the first 2 years.
However, after the experience gained in my first business, I wanted to grow as it was truly clear to me how much there was available to offer in the property industry. There were many different services I wanted to provide, I found and understood the problems people had with their properties in order to add value to them by recognising all the options that are available to them.
From that, Kilnstone Property was founded in 2010. Kilnstone Property takes pride in assisting all clients on their property journey by being a forward-thinking firm providing full services.
The knowledge I have acquired over the past 17 years has led to me being able to recognise, pursue, and utilise the opportunities- therefore bringing together the right place, right time, and the right price.
Knowing the value of a great opportunity means knowing when it’s a good time to expand and grow your portfolio, whether it be in finance, property, or yourself. I am truly focused on building long-term business relationships for the advancement of future generations. I believe that visualising my intended audience has always allowed me to connect the relationship between all demographics and locations.
Outside of property, I engage with yoga and meditation as well as reading self-development books which have influenced my life in a Kaizen approach. I am also a family man and enjoy time with my wife and 3 kids.
I am Kilnstone Property’s dedicated Head of Operations Manager with over 7 years of experience in the logistics of the property sector where I study data metrics with analysis tools for efficient decision-making. I take responsibility for the overall direction, coordination, and evaluation of the properties/sites as well as carrying out supervisory responsibilities in accordance with the organisation’s policies and applicable laws which comply with our clients.
I work in close collaboration with partners, and I am responsible for the financial performance of the business. I also review, analyse, interpret, and summarise annual operating budgets, monthly financial progress reports, and annual audited financial statements for all projects as well as implement oversees systems for cost control. In addition, I facilitate and coordinate ongoing professional communications with clients to ensure service requests are responded to in accordance with best practices. I also participate in formulating and administering company policies and developing long-range goals and objectives.
Away from the office, I switch off whilst I enjoy sunbathing, sunsets & and spending time with my partner.
I am currently a Land Consultant for Kilnstone Property. I have built excellent relationships with a selection of small to medium size developers across the UK for who I now exclusively source land and commercial property for. During this time, I have also established relationships with a wide number of land and commercial agents as well as many land and commercial property owners helping them to market, then sell on their sites whilst maximising the amount they receive for the site by using my network of industry professionals to provide expert advice and add value at every stage of the development process.
My name is Louis and I am the Canine Executive Officer at Kilnstone Property, my role is to interview and inspect any pets that tenants wish to have and reporting this back to landlords. I also guard the office from time to time, when I’m not dreaming about chasing cats. Although the founder isn’t too fond of my presence as I tend to sniff his bum he still gives me my commission by giving me belly rubs.
My name is Milo and I am Kilnstone Property’s Director of Barketing, my role is to determine which clients are most likely to give me treats, as well as sniffing pawtential tenants to find out who will be the best! Other than helping Robyn get the sales through the woof, I enjoy long walks and getting muddy whilst chasing a ball.
