RESI thank you

A resounding RESI success

2020-11-13T00:00:00+00:00

Some said it was sheer madness to attempt it – and I think I speak for all the Property Week team involved in RESI when I say we were bricking it on Tuesday morning as we prepared to kick off our first fully virtual two-day event during a national lockdown.

Diversity makes business sense

2020-11-27T00:00:00+00:00By Andrew Pinto

When I attend real estate events, they tend to be ‘pale, male and stale’. This is good in a way, because I’m easy to find in a crowd and everyone remembers me, but it’s not truly representative of the general population.

Which techniques can be used to mitigate empty property rates?

Can't cook, will cook

Cooking

Many of us are entering uncharted territory in more ways than one. Now the restaurants and pubs are off the social menu, quite a few will be venturing into the kitchen for the first time in a while and far more often than we would like.

Have no fear. ‘Can’t cook, will cook’ is here. Please send us your favourite family recipes or signature comfort dishes and we will share them with your fellow Property Week readers.

Diverse people reading books

We can’t go to the cinema, restaurants, pubs or shops. What can we do? We can read, watch TV and listen to podcasts and music, that’s what. But where to start? How about with some recommendations from the Property Week community?

Please send us your top book, Netflix and music picks and we will post them here. They can be as high or lowbrow, funny or tragic, relaxing or dramatic as you like – although perhaps steer clear of anything too depressing or apocalyptic, I don’t know, like the 2011 movie Contagion.

Send them to our Twitter and LinkedIn channels using #PWCovid19help including a few lines on why you’ve picked them and, if you can, a picture of what you’ve picked. Happy reading, watching and listening!
