Quay Celebrates 10th Anniversary! 26 Sep 2016


After an incredibly busy summer season, the partners and staff of Quay Holidays and Quay Living came together last Thursday to enjoy a combined 10th birthday and end-of-season party. Quay started in 2006 from a desk in partner, Helen Challis’s dining room. Today, its Poole Old Town offices house a permanent staff of 12, and over 25 part-time cleaners, van drivers, and handymen. As Helen explains, “The nature of our business is very hands–on. We started out in holiday letting, which is arguably the most intensive form of property management. Residential letting and estate agency services were natural extensions, and clients of those services receive a far more comprehensive service from Quay than from many other agents. We’re open 7 days a week, our telephones are answered until 10pm, and our dedicated Service Team are always on hand to deal with problems as they arise.”
