In the years since 1997, the year The Ringley Group was founded, we have been honoured with numerous awards endorsing our position as a leader in the UK property management sector.
Most recently we won the prestigious Property Week RESI Award 2018 for property manager of the year. The focus was squarely on the build-to-rent portal and resident apps that we developed in-house. These portals are greatly appreciated by our clients and residents and envied by our competitors.
Over the years, we received a great number of industry awards, but we are equally proud of those that have acknowledged our efforts to provide apprenticeships and work placements for local students, culminating in being recognised as local employer of the year in our London neighbourhood, Camden and Islington.
In the quickly developing space of build-to-rent, we recently teamed up with JP Hay in Manchester and have together re-branded as ‘Life by Ringley’. JP Hay is a lettings business with a similar background to ourselves and also a recipient of numerous awards. To name the most recent honours, JP Hay won awards as best sales & lettings agent and as best residential property management company.
