One woman’s mission to revolutionise block management

Kate Boyes, founder of evolutionary property-tech company Resident, has today launched SELF, her latest Software as a Service (SaaS) brand. SELF, a cloud based block management tool, that has been designed specifically for those who self-manage residential blocks.

Kate has been letting and managing property for 15 years and has had the opportunity to meet many savvy property owners and talk about their wish list for making block management more accessible. An online dashboard, easy enough to use from day one and crucially, affordable for those that self-manage, was the answer. SELF is service charge accounting made simple. It generates service charge demands, creates year end reports and records supplier invoices and leaseholder service charge receipts. Because Kate is a chartered surveyor and regulated by the RICS and ARLA, SELF is designed to help directors of Resident Management Companies comply with relevant landlord and tenant legislation.

Commenting on the launch Kate said:

“Through my work I recognised a need for a cost-effective solution that modernises block management and makes it more user friendly and transparent. Being able to combine technology with a passion for property to create genuinely useful tools for the residential property market is very exciting.”

A serial entrepreneur, Kate’s career was launched 15 years ago when she won a Property Week essay competition about what would have the greatest impact on real estate over the next decade. Before the term ‘prop-tech’ was coined, Kate predicted ways in which technology would enable and support the development of smart buildings.

Since then, Kate has set up an award winning letting and block management agency and founded Resident Block Management Software.
