Great to get a chance to chat with you Ayat. Can you give us a brief description of your role at UnderTheDoormat?
I am the property account manager here at UnderTheDoormat. My role is to manage all our existing new and potential homeowners accounts. That means overseeing the daily routine tasks involved with addressing the homeowner\'s needs and concerns and maintaining their account activities. I also support the booking and operations team when they need my help.
What is a typical day like for you?
A typical day for me as an account manager begins with checking the emails from our homeowners in the morning, supporting the booking team with any inquiries or requests that involve the homeowners' permission. I always make sure all our properties' calendars are up to date and check what\'s the booking schedule looks like. Some days will also involve having conversations with potential homeowners to grow our business.
What do you like the most about London?
I like how diverse and accepting this city is, the fact that you can be truly yourself without anyone judging you. The open spaces and parks are one of the main reasons I love this city as well because I can always go for a walk to unwind and recharge my batteries.
What's your favourite thing about your role so far?
My favourite thing about my position is definitely getting to know many amazing homeowners and getting to visit their stunning homes. I also enjoy working with many creative and passionate people and learning new things almost everyday.
Why should homeowners short-let their properties?
The main reason is that instead of leaving your property empty, homeowners can earn income with the peace of mind that the UnderTheDoormat team manages everything. Guests can enjoy the home and keep it clean while the homeowners are away and earn a passive income. Our team takes care of their properties that are professionally cleaned for the homeowners' return too.
What differentiates us in the short-term rentals sector?
The fact that we manage our properties from the beginning to the end of the booking process. We manage the booking, the cleaning process before and after the check-in/out so that when you leave your house. UnderTheDoormat team takes care of everything so you can rest assured that you will return to your property to find it in the same condition you left it.
Why should people visit London?
London is one of the most incredible cities in the world where any fashion, food, or art lover will have the best time ever. The city is very diverse and lively with amazing sights, popular attractions, and great activities. With so much to do in London, it's impossible to narrow the list of reasons to visit it.
Is short letting a home with UnderTheDoormat difficult?
The process of short-letting a property is super easy. The homeowner will only need to sign up on our website. I get in touch with them shortly after to explain more about us, our services, and the benefits of letting their home. Once they sign the contract, we set a time for the photography session, and we take of the rest. Homeowners earn additional income from their empty property with our fully managed service.
