MEET THE FIZZY HANDYMAN – PAULO SANTOS

FullSizeRenderYou’ve met the Fizzy Bobs, some of the Fizzy tenants.. Now meet the Fizzy Handyman!

One of the ways which Fizzy delivers an exceptional service is by having a dedicated handyman who, together with the Bobs, make sure that each flat is well maintained and Fizzy ready! Whether changing light bulbs, fixing windows and doors or  painting a whole flat, no job is too big for him. In this blog, we ask Paulo what it is like being the Fizzy Handyman.

How long have you been Fizzy’s handyman?

I’ve been a Fizzy handyman for about 4 months but I have been doing this professionally since I was 19. At the age of 14, I started training with my father whom I learnt my skills from.

Explain your typical day at a Fizzy building

My day starts really early in the morning. One of the key parts to the job is making sure the Fizzy flats are delivered to a high standard for the new tenants once previous tenants have moved out. This will involve painting the flat, checking all appliances and fittings, and fixing any minor repairs. It is part of my job to make sure every flat is Fizzy ready! I’ll also help the Bobs maintain the communal areas which might mean moving or installing furniture and repainting the walls.

IMG_0581What do you like the most about being a Fizzy handyman?

It’s really good to work in flats and in buildings where the standards are very high. I focus on quality rather than rushing my work which means I don’t have to keep coming back to the same flat to deal with the same issue. I’m always on the move in between Fizzy sites which I like as it means no one day is the same and I also get see the different Bobs every day. I really enjoy working with the Bobs; they’re all really friendly and helpful. Fizzy is a great team to work for.

Do you have any tips for our tenants that would help them less susceptible to damage in the flats?
IMG_0583
Airing your flats everyday just for couple of hours would really help with keeping mould at bay. It is also good practice to wipe down the bathroom and kitchen surfaces to maintain them, and also using limescale removals once in a while to help maintain the appliances like washing machine and dishwashers. High heels damage the floor especially if it’s laminate flooring. I would suggest wearing slippers while inside the flat.


If you could live in any Fizzy block, which one would you choose and why?

Canning Town 01I would choose to live in Fizzy Canning Town. I love the views and as it is the tallest building that we have, tenants have the benefit of having some amazing views of London. The location is also very appealing to me being less than 15 minutes to central London.

ZOOPLA RECOGNISES HOW FIZZY IS TRANSFORMING LONDON’S LETTINGS MARKET

Fizzy breaks new ground in its quest to reinvent renting. The popular property portal Zoopla recently featured Fizzy in an article on how technology is changing the rental market and the popularity of ‘virtual viewings'; a concept we introduced last year.

Read the article here:

Here’s how YOU can go on a viewing… from the comfort of your own home

Struggling to find time to go on rental viewings? Let your smartphone or tablet do the hard work instead…

By Annabel Dixon
December 28, 2015 01:00

What’s the latest?

Live video calling services, Skype and FaceTime, are transforming London’s letting market as renters opt for new ‘virtual’ property viewings over attending in person.

Fizzy Living, the private rental landlord in London, has seen a “steep rise” in requests for its online service this year. And 20% of viewings across its four available developments have been carried out via tablets and smartphones in the last six months.

On 10 separate cases, customers signed on the dotted line without ever seeing the homes in person.

Why is it happening?

London’s housing shortage has created a fast-moving rental market, according to Sophie Lau, marketing manager for Fizzy Living.

She explained: “For our customers, the online experience still has the personal interaction of a traditional viewing plus it saves them time and hassle – which is what it’s all about for us.”

CaptureArticle of Interest / Press Coverage: 28th December 2015 – Zoopla

Who does it affect?

Renters are mainly graduates or young professionals in their 20s and 30s who are used to doing things online. Signing a lease after a remote viewing is “not a big deal”.

It’s also popular with people living overseas and relocating to London. The service has started to catch on with time-poor Londoners too.

Sounds interesting. What’s the background?

Skype and FaceTime are not the only shows in town. Periscope and Meerkat are two live streaming services that are making waves in the property market. They can also be used to conduct live viewings and open house events.

“The experience still has the personal interaction of a traditional viewing plus it saves them time and hassle – which is what it’s all about for us.”

Drones are being used too, particularly for large country estates. That’s because the small remote control helicopters with video cameras attached can offer a bird’s eye view of what’s up for grabs. Though not necessarily live, drones can offer potential renters or buyers alike panoramic footage of the property and grounds as well as the neighbourhood.

Drones are also useful for properties that are hard to reach, allowing interested people to get a good feel for what’s on offer before making the journey.

Top 3 takeaways

Up to 20% of Fizzy Living’s viewings since July were carried out remotely.

Overseas customers, graduates and young professionals as well as time-poor Londoners are leading the way.

The trend for online viewings is set to increase as the service and products evolve..

FIZZY AND THE NEW BREED OF LANDLORDS

“An immaculate new flat, block managers so attentive that they will change light bulbs, a friendly atmosphere where neighbours socialise together and rent that the sisters feel is reasonable for Central London”

We were recently  featured in The Times  in an article about the growing and very promising build-to-rent sector as one of the corporate landlords leading the march. A big thank you to our Fizzy Stepney Green tenants Marina and Alexandra for their kind words. It’s great to hear that our tenants are happy and enjoying renting with us – this is what we’re all about.

Fizzy reaches 1000 PRS units with latest deal in West London

Fizzy Living the leader in the field of PRS has announced the acquisition of the Material Store at The Old Vinyl Factory in Hayes. The acquisition, Fizzy’s eighth, has planning consent for 164 units of one and two bedroom flats all for market rent. This will bring Fizzy’s total to 1000 units just in time for Christmas, putting it well on track to reach its target of 5000 units in 5 years.

Material Store is being delivered by HUB, a developer of mid-market London homes, in partnership with Bridges Ventures, the UK’s largest social impact investor. The Material Store is HUB’s second purpose-built private rental development after the Rehearsal Rooms in North Acton. In addition to the Material Store, HUB will deliver the Boiler House a 54-apartment scheme aimed at first-time buyers, which will sit next door to Fizzy.

The Old Vinyl Factory, which lies within the London Borough of Hillingdon, is a £250m mixed use regeneration scheme. The 17acre site is being developed by U+I Group and will deliver 630 new homes, office and retail space, museum, landscaped areas and playground, cinema and live music venue. Completion is expected in February 2018.

Purchased by EMI records in 1907 the site functioned as a record factory for over half a century and produced vinyl records for artists during the period including The Beatles, The Rolling StonesCliff Richard and Pink Floyd. It was renamed The Old Vinyl Factory after it was bought by Purplexed, a joint venture between Cathedral Group PLC and Development Securities PLC, in 2011.

The purchase includes reception space for a Fizzy onsite property manager, car park and a communal garden. It is excellently located, 5 minutes from both Hayes High Street Hayes and Harlington National Rail Station. Crossrail is expected to run from Hayes and Harlington from May 2018 (full service operating in 2019).

Harry Downes, Managing Director of Fizzy commented, “The Old Vinyl Factory is a fantastic re-development of a historic and iconic brand and we are delighted be part of it. We look forward to delivering 164 units to our target market of young professionals and with the site due to complete in early 2018 it will be just in time for Crossrail. It is also great to be working with HUB who shares our ethos in creating high-quality homes for London’s renters.”

Steve Sanham, development director at HUB, said: “London faces not only a shortage of sensibly priced homes for sale, but homes for rent too. This is our second major London Build to Rent scheme encouraging long-term responsible ownership and offering regular Londoners access to high quality housing. HUB’s commitment is very much to creating sensibly priced homes that set new standards for the areas in which we build, and we are delighted to be bringing the Material Store forward for development with Fizzy Living.”

INTRODUCING FIZZY VIRTUAL VIEWINGS – VIEW HOW YOU WANT TO

Flat-hunting just got easier.

Fizzy is proud to introduce virtual viewings so prospective tenants can now view our properties how they want to; either in person, over Skype, or FaceTime. We know how stressful finding a flat in London can be but we really do things differently here and we’re pretty sure you’ll agree. We’re all about hassle-free renting, and this begins right from the beginning when you first start to think about finding a new home:

  • No need to spend hours on property portals – all our available flats for rent are listed on our own portal. Search 1, 2 or 3 bed properties by building, view actual images, see floorplans and EPCs, and book a viewing for specific flats.
  • No pushy estate agents (no agency fees – result!)– you’ll be dealing with us directly and our dedicated Sales Team will help you pick your ideal flat and arrange a viewing for you when you want and you how you want…
  • No need to take a day off work – save time and hassle and just Skype or FaceTime us during your lunch break or whenever you get spare moment. We’ll show you around the exact flat you enquired about and as it’s still a 1 to 1 viewing, you’ll have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you’d like and also beat the queue to reserve it.

Still need to see it in person? We’ll arrange it. But don’t worry about reserving a flat over a video call; we’ve had many internationals relocating to the city and time-poor Londoners who have appreciated a virtual viewing and reserved a flat this way. Fizzy aims to reinvent renting; we’ve been making renting easy and enjoyable for over 3 years and we’re proud to say we have the happiest tenants in town.
