A POOLE property management company has been shortlisted for two business awards.

Goodknight Property Management (GPM) has been shortlisted for two awards in the Poole Business Awards 2024 for family business of the year and young entrepreneur of the year categories. 

Run by a husband-and-wife team, GPM was founded by property expert Leana Knight in 2019 when she saw a gap in the market for property agents focused on the growing high-end Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) sector for working professional tenants.

She said: “It is incredibly humbling to see our efforts and commitment to excellence acknowledged in this way.

“Being recognised in these categories is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and passion our team brings to the table every day.

"I am overjoyed to be nominated for the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. A huge thank you to my supportive husband, Pete Knight, and our amazing team, clients, and partners who have been instrumental in our journey.

"Starting our own business was a huge risk, especially with young children. But we are incredibly proud of having pushed through the challenges and be making a difference to the people of Poole.”

The awards ceremony will take place at Bournemouth University on June 25.

The family business of the year award was made to recognise the unique nature of family-run companies and why it matters to their success. 

Leana said: "Whether or not we win, we are proud to be in such esteemed company and look forward to celebrating together at the awards ceremony.

"Thank you, Poole Business Awards, for this incredible recognition. Here’s to continued success and many more achievements ahead!”

GPM is dedicated to delivering exceptional property management services and in addition to traditional residential lettings, their expertise lies in the meticulous sourcing, establishment, and effective management of HMOs. 

Poole Business Awards first launched in 2021, a spokesperson for the awards said entries this year were higher in both number and quantity, demonstrating the continued growth of the awards.
