Team Spotlight: Geri Sampson

Q: What does your role entail?

A: I work as a tenancy consultant with the admin team, handling deal progression and negotiation; everything that happens between a client finding a new home and moving into it, and sometimes beyond!

Q: What is your favourite part about working for Klippa?

A: I love the variety my role entails and the people I get to meet.

Q: What’s the biggest work challenge you’ve had to deal with?

A: Coming from a lettings and property management background, it takes a little while to get your head around working with the tenant’s interests at heart rather than the landlord’s.

Q: What is the best career lesson you’ve learned so far?

A: Nothing is as unpredictable as people!

Q: What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this?

A: Project management on the residential development side.

Q: What did you want to do for a job when you were a child?

A: I wanted to be an architect or an engineer. I was the kid that took things apart to see how they worked… I then realised my maths skills were non-existent.

A: Making things! I have a very artistic side to my character.

A: I was kidnapped in Laos.

Q: What’s your favourite line from a film?

Q: If you could meet anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

A: There’s quite a few! Oscar Wilde. I think he’d be one hell of a drinking partner and it would be a good night out!

Q: Three words your family and friends would use to describe you?

A: Creative. Loyal. Perfectionist.

Q: Name one thing that annoys you?

A: ONE thing?!

Q: If you could have any superpower what would it be?

A: Invisibility and the ability to walk through walls. That’s two, sorry!

Q: What is one food that you cannot resist?

A: Cheese.

Q: Finally, can you give us a good piece of advice?

A: You only have to do something for the first time once.
