B-hive chosen by Director of The Property Institute for new block management venture


LATEST NEWS: We have been chosen by the former Vice Chair of the IRPM and current Director of The Property Institute (TPI)**, Samantha Massey, to launch her own block and estate management venture, SAMAS Property Management.

Sam is a fellow of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the cofounder of Doyenne, ambassadors pioneering for women in the residential property market. Sam is no stranger to ground-breaking efforts in block and estate management and the launch of her new business, powered by B-hive, is an exciting proposition. 

As an experienced block management expert, B-hive will support Sam on her journey and bring to life her vision. We will deliver all the back-office services, including those pertinent to Health and Safety, compliance, robust technology and compliant service charge accounting all of which are necessary in an ever-evolving legislative market.

Sam comments: “I have been approached countless times in the last 20 years to consider starting my own managing agent and have finally decided to take the plunge.

I know I will have the backup I need from B-hive to deliver the engaged, collaborative, management service that I believe in. I can’t wait to get started.” 

Sam’s goal is to provide a service that is designed to reenergise the customer experience and provide new initiatives, by placing emphasis on educating key stakeholders and delivering customised training for Directors of Resident Management Companies (RMCs), to help foster a better relationship between managing agents and clients.

The Vegner Group CEO, Alec Guthrie, comments: “Sam has worked in the industry for a long time, and I am delighted she has chosen B-hive Block Management Partners. I am sure her new venture will be successful.”

Increasing numbers of agents and property managers are choosing to add block management to the services they offer or launch their own block management businesses with the comfort of having a trusted, credible and capable partner in their corner.

Many agents are reaping the benefits of expanding their database, forming connections with a wider local audience and having the ability to cross sell their services, whilst property managers can rest assured that we will handle the service charge accounting and alleviate the pressures of staying compliant.

Our partners use their own brands and run their own businesses and are responsible for simply delivering a first-class customer experience, as well as a current and future proof compliant service.

To discuss a collaboration with B-hive, please contact B-hive’s Head of Key Accounts, Duncan Foster, directly on 020 8394 5368 / [email protected].
