About Harrogate Personal Property Consultants

Company Profile

Company History

Harrogate PPC or Harrogate Personal Property Consultants is a trade style for Force 10 Property Management Ltd., which was founded in 2008 by Ovidiu Staicu and Tony Ward in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

Force 10 Property Management started as a business aiming to deliver property management with a difference. A difference (for the better, of course!) in customer satisfaction for both landlords and tenants alike. As Tony was running also a separate business - Force 10 Recruitment -, Force 10 Property Management started with Ovidiu doing everything - from marketing and sales to the effective property management and lettings itself - you name it, he's done it all.

As the property portfolio started to increase, it was clear that he couldn't do everything himself. So, in 2009 Ovidiu began to recruit more personnel.

Ovidiu's background is made of many years in finance in various high level jobs in many industries - from shoes and construction industry moving onto sugar and chocolate confectionery and then for more than 6 years in various industries across several countries with General Electric - from Aircraft Engines to Energy Services and banking.

Thus Ovidiu has developed a thorough understanding of the financial issues in a business and a sound cross market expertise. During the time with GE, Ovidiu did also various quality courses including 6 Sigma, where Ovidiu has achieved Black Belt on the Supplier Training and Green Belt as a GE employee.

With this background, Ovidiu understood it was critical to get the right team in place in order to drive further growth, while maintaining an outstanding level of quality across the board. The office was filled with talented and enthusiastic staff and the high level of quality has been maintained through growth period.

The Hard Work Recognised

By getting the right people on board, Ovidiu and Force 10 Property Management have been able to achieve the following levels of recognition:

  • - Shortlisted as finalist for the national "Landlord & Letting Awards" 2011/ 2012 for the following categories: customer service, innovation and Letting Agent for Yorkshire and The Humber;
  • - Shortlisted as finalist for the Doncaster Chamber of Commerce Business Awards for the "Excellence in Customer Service Award" for 2011.

 The Expansion Continues

As a result of the growth in Doncaster and South Yorkshire, the business expanded throughout Yorkshire and opened a new office in 2011 in Harrogate.

To better address the requirements of the new market in Harrogate and North Yorkshire, we launched Harrogate PPC or Harrogate Personal Property Consultants, which takes a comprehensive look at larger property portfolio and comes with solutions to increase property returns.
