Deidicated To Your Property Needs

Katy Adams - Managing Director

I pride myself on the ethos we have developed at Belhus Properties, one that shines through every member of the team. We’ve built a friendly, family orientated business that takes care of its clients as though they were family themselves. I’m pleased to see clients call in to say ‘Hello’ or ask for advice, it’s so rewarding when you see clients achieve their goals, if we can play a part in that, then it means a lot. My most memorable moment was the day our daughter Lydia joined our company.

Lydia Adams - Sales Director

I joined the company when I came back from travelling in 2010, since then I have worked in all areas of the company and helped grow the business. Working alongside my mother and father does have its moments but I love sharing our ideas together, we bounce off each other and it works really well! I have just come back from maternity leave and am getting involved with the marketing side of things. I really enjoy the family feel to the office….it’s nice to be back…feels like home..

Derek Adams - Director

It is an honour to work alongside my wife, Katy and join her on her vision to provide a more personable, family orientated, friendly service. I have over 40 years property experience, covering all areas of construction and property development. I would consider myself to have valuable experience and insight in order to approach property maintenance with the critical care and attention that is required. Aside from the property maintenance involvement I also manage the accountancy overview and the day to day running of the company.

My role is to support the team ensuring that everything flows smoothly between ourselves, the landlords and the tenants. It’s a challenging role that keeps me on my toes, everyday is different. Keeping on top and ensuring everyone is happy is my key focus. My aim is to ensure every landlord and tenant has confidence in the team. As the accounts administrator numbers are definitely my thing and I ensure that all processes run seamlessly.

Graham Driver - Chartered Surveyor

As a Chartered Building Surveyor with 30 years’ experience in property consultancy I have been involved with a wide variety of different properties from listed buildings to modern houses.  Over my career I have worked not only locally but also in London, Manchester and Sheffield.  In my experience each property is unique and therefore requires careful consideration to ensure that a condition report accurately reflects the condition and issues that may be present, allowing the purchaser to make an informed decision.
