How did we come to be and Who is driving the business?

How did we come to be?

We  launched a Selective Licensing property management service in 2018  across Nottingham because we saw an opportunity to establish ourselves  in the market place. With tons of experience in the sector as landlords  and property developers and an eye for detail we knew that we could help  landlords navigate the changing landscape that is the private rental  sector.

Our business has now developed into a multi service  agency delivering lettings and property management services to landlords  across Nottinghamshire.
The directors have a passion and social  conscience and run this business to create resources and mechanisms to  make social change.

Who is driving the business?

Managing Director – Terry Galloway


Terry  wants to change the care system because he feels the system lets people  down.  He feels that it is his destiny to improve outcomes for children  in care and care leavers, believing wholeheartedly that these people  have so much to offer our community if only they were prepared better.


He  lived in over 100 places during his childhood in the care system and  talks frequently about his experiences. His was the middle child and  both his siblings eventually had children go into care. He made a  promise to his sister Hazel that together they would change the care  system so no one would ever have to go through what they did.


Hazel  was vulnerable as she left care and was later killed by her boyfriend,  Terry’s brother has had a tough life too, and he has had various things  happen to him, as a result has been in and out of prison and has cost  the state over £1.2m so far.


Terry is trying to inspire  people and communities to take joint responsibility for children in  care. He helped to develop the Children in Care and Care Leavers  Strategy 2018-2021 for Nottinghamshire County Council and sits on their  ‘Looked after Children and Care Leavers Partnership Board’


In  April 2018 District and Borough Councils in England became Corporate  Parents for children in care for the first time since the early 70’s.  Terry saw this as an opportunity to get councils to work together so he  persuaded 8 Local Authorities through the Children and Social Care Act  2017 to create a “Joint Local Care Leaver Offer”


He also  sits on the Board at the National Care Leavers Charity ‘Become’ who were  formally the ‘Who Cares Trust’ they are the secretariat to the All  Party Parliamentary Group for Looked after Children and Care Leavers led  by Steve McCabe MP, Earl of Listowel, Tim Loughton MP, Bill Esterson MP  and Alex Burghart.

Operations Director – Diane Bialek


A chartered marketer and over 30 years’ experience as a private landlord and property developer, both domestic and commercial.


Born in Sneinton and raised in Carlton, Diane is a local girl who’s done OK.


Being  the first in her family to go to university and spending most of her  working life in the retail industry at senior management/executive  level, Diane has not forgotten her social duty and her intrinsic desire  to ‘give something back’.


As a previous Chair/Trustee of  The Nottinghamshire YMCA and The Zone Youth Project for 7 years, Diane  is committed to improving outcomes for some of our most vulnerable  members of society, especially children and those suffering from the  effects of domestic violence. To this aim, Diane has been a Chair/Panel  member for school Admission Appeals for 10 years, is an accredited  Counsellor and has accreditations in understanding autism.


Diane’s  claim to fame is that she is a British Gold Medallist in Taekwondo and  has taken part in the YMCA’s ‘Sleepeasy’ – sleeping rough in Nottingham  City Centre, on a Friday night, in the freezing cold, with cardboard and  a sleeping bag, to raise funds and awareness of Homelessness.
