What we believe - Ashdown Phillips & Partners

What we believe

We believe property management should be done brilliantly. We all bring different skills, alternative ways of thinking and different life experiences to our business. We work hard to ensure our values are the cornerstones of our company and to ensure they are at the forefront of everything we do. It's this balance of our different backgrounds and shared beliefs that makes us a brilliant, diverse and connected team. You'll find below the values we uphold across the business.


Our focus is on one thing only: property management, so it’s no surprise that our aim is to do it brilliantly. Our singular focus gives us the space to pay attention to the detail, dig into the technicalities and explore even the smallest of improvements.

Focusing on one job and doing it well means our clients are free to focus on other things because we aim to know their properties better than they do.


We like to think of ourselves as the engineers of the property management world. Engineers are crucial; nothing works without them. They spend years understanding theory and apply their expertise in a very practical way. They deliver truly brilliant solutions as a result. And that’s exactly what we do.

Expertise rarely comes without passion, and we have both. We have been told we are property management geeks and we quite like that. Our team is dynamic and agile enough to ensure we allocate the most appropriate knowledgeable and experienced teams on our clients’ portfolios.

Clients like our expertise as we come up with the brightest solutions.


We believe the world is a connected system. Whatever we do, there is a consequence somewhere else, for someone else. We think about this when making decisions. Our business is also a connected system. It is connected within, and to our clients and their customers. It is critical to us that everyone within our system stays connected; it is the best way to build honest and open relationships.

Because we are connected, we provide a seamless management service. It's as if we are part of our clients’ in-house team.


We can pack a lot into what we mean by happiness. Fundamentally, we want the people we are connected with to live happy lives. We provide our team the tools to be happy and fulfilled in their roles, enabling them to be committed to delivering brilliant property management.

Health & Wellbeing in the workplace is an important part of this and if, by doing what we do, we can make peoples’ working lives better we believe we are winning. That goes for our own team, our clients’ teams and their occupier customers too. Whilst we don’t directly employ occupiers, we do feel it’s our responsibility to contribute to their health & wellbeing in the workplace and organise a number of initiatives at the buildings we manage as part of our sustainability pledge.

A happy team lives a balanced life, giving and receiving respect in equal measure. Ultimately, a happy team is one our clients find a pleasure to work with.
