Block Management Overview

Block and Estate Management is about the minutia done well: the role of a Managing Agent is technical, administrative, practical and political. It takes joined up thinking from a multi-disciplined team with one eye on the strategic long term plan and with sufficient resource to react to whatever is necessary day-to-day: the skills that block and estate management spans are: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

As a leading Managing Agent, we are a one-stop-property shop. We understand that our role is sometimes signposting Clients to get expert advice and supporting them to interpret such advice and make decisions. We support and help owners reach out to government and other local services where matters are beyond our day-to-day block management remit.

As a Managing Agent we know our true business is building relationships with people. Our people are empowered and know that they can make a difference to how people feel about where they live. We call our 'Property Manager's 'Relationship Managers' as our focus which is written up in our values is (a) to build relationships, (b) add value, and (c) to take the initiative: to us this means managing relationships. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order, and was the first Managing Agent to introduce a 'money back guarantee'.

We are not shy of hard work and believe our ability to get stuck in and find solutions that sets us apart. We are innovative to the core and committed to implementing good ideas in pursuit of 5* service.

Being who we are would be impossible without our passionately committed people, whose qualifications we sponsor and who we support professionally to be the best they can be, as achieving a national training award and our Silver IIP status confirms.


Block Management Reviews

"Our property manager, Natalie Birmingham has made our experience with Ringley extremely positive, having moved some of the management of our commercial property over to Ringley.
Natalie's professionalism, promptness, and dedication to exceeding expectations has left a lasting impression. She responds promptly to any queries or comments that we have and what sets Natalie apart is her commitment to going above and beyond. "

"Ringley have been supporting a number of leaseholders as managing agent - including myself - through a large insurance claim. It’s not an easy job managing 40+ different competing interests and I commend them for handling such a tricky situation. Dominic and Kate have been been responsive, informative and have advocated my needs and interests to all third party stakeholders. The claim will take a significant amount of time to resolve but had it not of been for Ringley I do not think we would have made any progress at all. I strongly recommend them."

"We have had a problem with noise from the flat above us in Lady Isle House Ferry Court Cardiff. We contacted a Mr Paul Staniforth who immediately became involved and addressed the situation. We really do appreciate what he has done for us and cannot thank him enough. Once again a big thank you to Mr Staniforth. The noise above was intolerable."

History of Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace is located in south London, and is approximately 7 miles south-east of Charing Cross. It is named after the Crystal Palace Exhibition building, designed by Sir Joseph Paxton. It was originally built in Hyde Park, to house the 100,000 exhibits of fine arts, crafts and industrial innovations, of the Great Exhibition of 1851. This can be viewed as a monument to the Victorian era, and can be attributed to the hard work of Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, and Henry Cole, an English civil servant and inventor. The Great Exhibition was a huge success, and attracted six million visitors, the equivalent of one third of the British population. This large glass and cast iron structure, was dismantled in Autumn 1851, and transported from Hyde Park, and rebuilt at the top of Penge Peak near Sydenham Hill. The building was completed, in 1854.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace Park is a good place for any visitor. There are giant dinosaur statues, which  tell how the story of science is built and changes over time. The skatepark is designed to meet riders of all ages and abilties, with an 11 metre curved concrete band, with a wide range of rideable terrains. 
The Crystal Palace Park maze is one of the largest in the country, with a good diameter, of 160 ft, so it is easy for any visitor to get lost. It has towering hedgerows and a confounding network of pathways. The maze is free, and open to all.
