  • Publish Date: Posted almost 2 years ago

Today we are sharing Eva's next interview in her Women in Property series, this week Eva interviews self-employed Property Operations Manager, Clare Harradine.

We hope you enjoy this interview with Eva and Clare as we give you an insight into the world of property and importantly as we speak to women in the heart of the sector.

​E: "Clare you are a bit of a powerhouse when it comes to managing property as not only do you look after some very difficult tenancies, but you also manage multiple businesses! Can you tell me a little bit about what it is that you do?"

C: "I am a self-employed Property Operations Manager and currently manage a large privately rented HMO portfolio of which is predominantly housing social tenants. I am also working with Social Housing Group who are on a mission to help house 1,000,000 people in the UK, raising funds from private investors to help them achieve this."

E: "How did you get into the property industry?"

C: "I started as a self employed administrator with an aim to work 10-16 hours per week whilst I had two very young children. I hit the ground running and within a few weeks I was full time and solely managing the rapidly growing HMO portfolio and team."

E: "What advice would you give to other women looking to get into property?"

C: "It is known to be a male dominated environment to work within. Be mindful and confident of your own abilities and remain soft yet strong."

E: "What’s the weirdest thing you have ever found on a property visit?"

C: "Not weird as such, although I have definitely witnessed some eye opening things over the years that would shock anyone. Housing vulnerable tenants who often face a mirage of challenges in their life can be rewarding but also eye opening."
