Limelight Property Management is owned and operated by Lu, who has over 25 years experience working within the property sector in Exeter and Devon, from residential sales and lettings to commercial acquisitions for companies such JD Wetherspoon.
She has also worked overseas selling holiday accommodation in Cyprus.
Following the successful start up of her sister company www.limelightcleaning.co.uk Lu was aware that there was a need for a local "agent" with expertise in Management, Cleaning and Hospitality to assist several of her existing clients with the management of their holiday lets, in particular Airbnb.
Since Airbnb launched and took off in the UK during 2010 Lu has personally hosted in excess of 50 guests in her own property, her first being a young student from Japan, who booked to stay with Lu for a month via Airbnb on a Bed and Breakfast basis for £40 per night in her spare bedroom. Lu and has managed over a 1,000 successful bookings for clients in and around the Exeter area and having hosted numerous guests herself, stayed in numerous Airbnb accommodation and managed bookings for clients for over 10 years her knowledge and expertise is second to none!
Lu doesn't open the office at 9am and finish at 5pm. Lu is available 24/7 for her guests...because you have to be! Lu provides the whole service from start
to finish at a fraction of the price that residential agents do!! So not only do you get a full qualilty service at a competitive price with a local agent, with years of experience, you also
get someone that guarantees to be on hand whenever she's needed and a real professional yet personal touch. We are there to help your guests from the very first email enquiry until the
minute they check out...no closing at 5pm here!! Lu ALWAYS personally checks her clients accommodation prior to new guests arriving to make sure that a 5 Star standard is provided, she adds
finishing touches such as towel origami and welcome packs. Upon check out the accommodation is thoroughly checked over to ensure there is no loss or damage.
With the increasing number of student apartments throughout the city centre, some private landlords are finding that their city centre properties are not renting like
they used to. This is where Lu's knowledge and expertise in renting out local property for short term rentals on Airbnb has become invalueable.
Although now is not the right time for people to be booking Airbnb accommodation, there is going to come a time soon when it is deemed safe to holiday in the UK. Therefore Lu believes that the demand for Airbnb property is going to increase significantly.
