Who are your landlords/ landlady?

It is a family run business. My name is Maria and I am a Senior Lecturer. I have worked 18 years in Higher Education and have ample experience dealing with International and home students. I was an international student⦠so I am familiar with all the challenges that come with it. As a student, I lived in numerous accommodations and houses. I have had some good experiences but some rather bad ones too. So, I promised myself that one day, if I could afford it, I would have my own student house which would offer the safety and homely environment that students who live away from home deserve. I am pleased that I was able to make this dream reality. Our tenants' testimonials (see pdfs attached) prove that we have succeeded in providing a good customer service.
