Less is more

02.05.18

Stuff, organised mess, mementoes …… call it what you want but the truth is, most of us are guilty of having or being surrounded by more things than we can ever use or need, that’s right, we’re hoarders!!!

As a nation we hoard £10billion worth of clothes we never wear and approximately £2.6billion is spent each year on unwanted gifts. Author of ‘keep this toss that’, Jamie Novak says that “the fewer things you keep, the more special they become to you”.

Now we are in the full swing of Spring, I think it’s time to start organising our possessions to make life nice and orderly again. It is a laborious task but here are a few tips which will help you decide what to keep and what to ditch.

  1. One room at a time – the thought of having to reorganise everything can be overwhelming so if you organise one room at a time, this will make the process less daunting.
  2. Clear out your wardrobe – use the 2 year rule, if you’ve not worn the item in 2 years chances are you won’t wear it again.
  3. Never start with sentimental things – you’ll end up spending more time reminiscing about the good old days and getting too emotionally attached to toss it away.
  4. Ditch the ‘rather not used items’ – we often have more than one of something from kitchen utensils to clothes so don’t clog up space and only keep the preferred and most used items.
  5. Money money money – Make some money out of stuff you don’t want by setting up a car boot/ garage sale or even listing it on ebay or gumtree.
  6. Go paperless – so many things are digital nowadays like reading books, cookery books and even photos so save yourself some shelf space and get rid of the hard copies.
    Whilst we’re on the paperless theme, why not use a wipe clean board for messages and notes.
  7. Kids play – Get rid of toys that the kids no longer play with, are broken or not 100% intact. Rotate the remaining toys so your kids can play with a few items at a time and store the rest. Bring out the stored items every few months so they look and feel new to your child(ren).
  8. Sweet memories – some things are really hard to get rid of like your first card/ soft toy from your partner or the first picture your child drew for you or toys your parents bought for you. Choose a few items that give you that warm fuzzy feeling and put them in a nice box or tie it with a ribbon as a keep sake. You can take pictures of the other items you are getting rid of so the memories will still be there.
  9. Charity starts at home – if you’re not making the most out of some items, you could donate unwanted/ unused items to charity. It’ll free up storage space at home and make you feel good that your gesture has made a difference in someone’s life.
  10. Be ruthless – when deliberating over an item, ask yourself the following: Why am I keeping it? Where will I store it? Will I remember I have it and will I be able to find it again? Will I ever use it again?
  11. See it through – once you’ve deciding to get rid of an item, get it out the house asap so you won’t have second thoughts.

Happy New Year!

After a few relaxing days off enjoying the festivities, the team are back in the office all bright eyed and bushy tailed ready to take on the world.

It’s that time where most of us embark on new years resolutions and it’s no different with businesses. In 2018, we hope to build on last year’s success and more importantly, add value to the company to ensure our clients receive the best service. To help us achieve this, we have made a couple of additions to the team.

Many of you will have already dealt with Hieng who joined the Davidson Estates family as Sales Co-ordinator. Her main role is to chase sales progression and ensure all sales complete quickly and efficiently whilst keeping our clients updated regularly.

We’re also pleased to introduce Gareth Evans who joins us as Sales and Lettings Negotiator. Gareth has over 13years experience in the field through his sales and lettings roles at Maguire Jackson, Dixons and Preferential Properties.

The latest at Davidson Estates

12.04.16

The last couple of months here at Davidson Estates has seen a few changes. We’ve moved to our shiny new office, and we’ve also gained 3 new members of staff.

Taking care of the property management side of things is Andrew, our new Property & Maintenance Manager. Andrew has come to us from a background of high volume and complex maintenance issues, and brings with him 5 years of experience in nationwide property management. He is responsible for the day-to-day running of our portfolio of fully managed properties and, having worked with him for a month now, we can honestly say he never stops going the extra mile to keep our tenants and landlords happy!

Additionally, as of Monday this week, we have had a new Sales Manager and a Sales Assistant join us – David and Tanya. Together, they will be in charge of sales appraisals and negotiations, and will be the first point of contact for any sales enquiries.

We’re thrilled to see our team growing, and to see our company moving forward. We’re very excited for what the future holds for us, and we look forward to building many new relationships as well as continuing the ones we have built over the years with many valued contacts.

Our new home

21.03.16

You may remember us mentioning our big move not so long ago, from our home of 4 years on Calthorpe Road, to Frederick Road. Well, you’ll be happy to know we made it here in one piece, and the office looks fab! There’s finally enough room for our growing team, and even space for a couple more. We also have a lovely seating area for visiting clients, right in front of the big arch window, and a luxurious meeting room on the second floor.

We are continuing to offer our outstanding lettings, sales and property management services, in addition to our investments department offering a wide variety of exciting opportunities for investors all over.

As you can see, our new location is every bit as pretty and picturesque as the majority of the premium Edgbaston addresses that we typically operate in. Our heart is and will always be in this beautiful district of Birmingham and its ever-buoyant property market.

If you’re in the area, feel free to pop in and say hi 🙂

We’re moving home

07.03.16

Here at Davidson Estates, we’ve decided to up sticks and relocate, pack our bags and start afresh in a brand new location………2 minutes down the road. That’s right: on Wednesday 9th March, we will be leaving our Calthorpe Road office to move to our new home in Frederick Road.

Whilst staying within the beautiful B15 area of Edgbaston, we will have our very own office, which has been fully renovated and decorated throughout and looks just lovely. It’s the perfect bright and cheery environment for our bright and cheery staff. The office is also situated right next door to our favourite solicitors, Seymour Luke, which we’re super pleased about.

Situated in an executive period building within the Calthorpe Estate, our heart remains in the B15 Edgbaston property market; and our lovely new location is even more telling of the type of area we operate in.

Our new address will be: The Coach House, 14a Frederick Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 1JD. Why not pop in and see us some time?

Now – does anyone fancy giving us a hand with the move?….

Greenfield Cresent

The new Edgbaston Village

19.02.16

Plans for the new Edgbaston Village are well underway, as planning permission has been granted to Calthorpe Estates to create six brand new retail units, premier student apartments and Grade A offices on Greenfield Crescent. As well as this, just around the corner, on Harborne Road, works will soon commence on properties opposite Morrisons supermarket to convert them into luxury one and two bedroom rental apartments, and the Birmingham Medical Institute Conference centre will be being transformed into an attractive new restaurant and wine bar called The Physician.

If you check out the Edgbaston Village website, you can see an artist’s impressions of what the new retail units on Greenfield Crescent and Harborne Road will look like. The units will be available from Autumn 2016, and are anticipated to welcome even more visitors to the area, which is already home to many charming bars and eateries such as El Borracho de Oro (exquisite Spanish restaurant and tapas bar), The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel and Cocktail Lounge and The Blue Piano, which serves an enchanting mixture of Thai food and live jazz music – played on an actual blue piano by guest musicians.

At Davidson Estates, we’re already ecstatic to be able to call Edgbaston home, and we’re super excited for things to come. With so many improvements having taken place in the city recently, we can’t wait to see what more Edgbaston has to offer us.
