Adam and Gemma, Scarborough and Filey!

Pass the Keys® have formed a partnership with local businessman Adam and his wife Gemma to help make short let management in the area for landlords efficient, lucrative and most importantly hassle-free.

Tell us a bit about yourself!

I’m Adam, I was born and raised in Scarborough so have a great deal of knowledge of the area and what it has to offer. Although spending most of my working career in the oil industry, travelling the world and integrating with many different wonderful people and cultures alike, I grew up always having a passion for property and what the sector has to offer. 

Over the last few years, I decided to follow my dreams in the property and hospitality sector. Since then I have bought and renovated a lovely bespoke villa in the Algarve purposely designed for short-term rental in the tourism hospitality sector.

Two years ago I set up and now run a successful cleaning company alongside a family-run laundry and dry cleaners to provide a 5-star service to the short let hospitality sector.

What drew you to partnering with Pass the Keys?

My high ambitions encouraged me to offer a bigger and more complex service to my landlords and their properties in the form of a full end-to-end hassle-free management service. That’s when I stumbled upon Pass the Keys, immediately acknowledging they could be exactly what I needed to expand my already growing business and provide my customers with a fantastic hassle-free service.

What really attracted me the most was Pass the Keys tried and tested efficient technology and systems and their support system, offering extensive experience and support at every point of the process.  

Why is Scarborough ideally suited to a property management franchise?

Being born and raised in Scarborough, I have a great understanding of what this wonderful part of the country has to offer. Retaining its crown as the most visited holiday destination in England outside of London speaks for itself for those thinking of venturing into the world of short-term lettings in the area.

From its miles of stretched golden beaches, action-packed family fun and entertainment to breathtaking coastal and rural walks, dining and nightlife and much more, including word-class acts such as Stereophonics, Westlife and many more this year at our newly renovated open-air theatre.

Having so much to offer, Scarborough and Filey can cater for all people, from a seaside family holiday to romantic breaks, hikers and dog walkers alike wanting to explore the amazing scenery, making it the perfect place for hosts to offer their properties to the short-let market.

I am so excited to start this new venture and help other people follow their dreams and create some extra passive income by becoming a short-let host completely stress and time free.
