Behind the scenes – Colin Hodkinson
We’ve spent a few minutes catching up with our Head of Property Management, Colin Hodkinson so you can get to know more about him and his role at Xenia Lettings!
Tell us a little bit about your role…
I feel my role will be to provide our staff on site with a robust and supportive team, so they can focus on providing the best service possible to our Landlords and tenants.
How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve worked in PBSA for over 20 years in pretty much every role you can think of, and I’ve used this experience to look after properties ranging from 117 units to over 2000. For a short period, I focused on debt collection for one of the largest student accommodation providers.
Over the last three years, I have been nominated for two national awards and subsequently won both. These awards were both voted for by my peers and the company’s stakeholders.
I also have a BA Honours Degree in Business Management and Law.
What would you say makes Xenia Lettings stand out?
I think its Xenia’s future plans to expand and grow! To delve into more than just the PBSA sector and gain additional business is a really exciting prospect. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
What do you love about your role?
At present, as you can imagine, it’s all very new, but what I’ve always liked is making customers happy and looking after my team! A happy team = happy customers!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?
Always make evidence-based decisions and breath before you act.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I used to be very involved with an amateur race team, which I miss every day.
If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
Just one?! I’d love to have the ability to change into anything I wanted, but if I had to choose just one, I’d love to be able to fly and see how fast I could really go!
