Benjamin Hume Ba(Hons) MARLA MIRPM AssocRICS
Benjamin’s first job after university was as a Police Officer followed by a stint in Banking and Retail. But having rented a property for several years and become aware of the many issues faced by tenants and landlords, as well as realising his ability to solve property related issues, Benjamin started in his first property management role as Lettings Administrator in a national agency call centre.
His career progressed to running the property management departments in a number of high street lettings agencies across Hampshire and to achieving his MARLA status. Benjamin’s experience further extended to residential leasehold management agents, or block management, and onto the next stage of the residential property management ladder. Benjamin is an associate of RICS and now Managing Director of his own leasehold managing agency- Evolve Block & Estate Management. In 2016, with two industry colleagues, Benjamin started a leasehold training organisation called The Leasehold Management Professionals (LMP) to provide up-to-date CPD from key industry figures for leasehold property managers on the South Coast.
In his spare time, Benjamin rides motorcycles, enjoys kayaking as well as soaking up the different atmospheres of the many European cities he loves to explore.
