Meet the Team

Regina Mangan – Managing Director

Regina worked with Forte Hotels in Ireland and the UK in a variety of Management roles. She moved to Waterford in 1995 to set up and run Waterford’s first apart hotel. After 2 years in this great role and having made a lot of business contacts Regina went on to set up Book A Room, the very first company in Waterford to specialise in renting property.

“Working in the hotel industry, helped me learn and understand the importance of delivering a high level of customer service. The business is really about people and not property. We don’t just rent we find people homes. In doing this we look after our landlords needs. In order for us to maintain high standards and excellent results we know we must have the best people working with us. A great attitude is everything, and so every member of the team and every contractor that works with us understand that a great attitude is needed every day to make our clients happy. Thankfully I love what I do.”

Maria has a very hands on role within the maintenance division, ensuring the property maintenance and refurbishment services meet the highest of standards. “As the only company in Waterford to have a dedicated maintenance division we pride ourselves in the value and expertise that we can pass on to our clients. We only deal with trusted tradesmen and contractors who understand we have to deliver great prices and service. Tenants need to be happy in their homes, and landlords need to keep expenses down. It’s important that Landlords know that these expenses can be used to reduce their tax bill.”
