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 Golders Green

 

Golders Green is situated in north-west London, in the borough of Barnet. It is 6.9 miles from the centre of London. The "Golders" name probably originates from a 14th century family called Godyere, who lived in the area. "Green" refers to the manorial common at a cross roads, next to which the settlement was built.
In the 13th century, the area was first founded as a medieval hamlet in the large parish of Hendon, Middlesex. 
In the early 20th century, during the reign of King Edward VII, (r.1901-1910), Golders Green remained a small rural hamlet, with only a few houses. However, in 1907, Golders Green station was opened, on the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway. This is the Northern Line we know today. The railway development led to a rapid boom in the number of houses, and the population increased greatly.
Golders Green was made the home to Jewish people, and by 1910, there were many Jewish shops and families. By 1915, there were approximately 300 Jewish famillies. After World War I, (1914-1918), a number of synagogues were first built in the area. 
During the 1930s, Adolf Hitler's rise to power in Germany was bad news, as one aspect of his Nazi propaganda was antisemitism. Jewish people feared persecution, and fled. An ideal new home for the Jewish community was Golders Green. By 1959, one third of the population here was recorded as Jewish. 
In 1911, Golders Green had a population of 4,465, and in 1931, this had grown to 17,837. In 2022, the population was recorded as 19,386.
