A little about me
Meet Our Team
Meet our Irelands Real Estate Accounts Manager, Claire Allatt.
What is your position at Irelands Real Estate?
Describe a day in the life of an Irelands Real Estate Accounts Manager.
My day consists of figures mainly. I download all of the tenants’ rental payments from the bank each morning, look after our owners’ accounts, process creditor invoices for maintenance and company creditors and reconcile bank accounts. We pay our owners twice monthly, and we issue owner statements at each month’s end, so my busy times are mid-month and month end.
What’s the most fulfilling part about working in property management?
I love being part of a great team at Irelands providing excellent service and getting the best results for our owners
What hobbies do you participate in outside of working on the Irelands Team?
I have two very sporty sons, and I watch all their games – football and hockey. I do not get much time for hobbies, but I do love walking, getting outdoors, and I love a bit of yoga too.
If you could invite anyone over for tea, dead or alive, who would it be, and why?
I would invite Malala Yousafzai. She is the young Pakistani activist who recovered from being shot by the Taliban. Against all the odds, she recovered and went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize. She has written a book of her life, but I’d love to hear her tell her story and how she held on to her dreams through all the adversity that life threw at her.
If you were not working as an Accounts Manager, what else would you like to do?
My dream job would be a cartoon animator and work for a movie company like Pixar. It always seems like an amazing job!
If you were stuck on a deserted island, which book would you take with you, and why?
It is hard to choose, as I have lots of favourite books, but it’d probably be a Dan Brown novel or Jane Austen’s, Pride and Prejudice.
Do you have a favorite quote that you’d like to share?
It’s not so much a quote, but more of an expression. “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.” It was the way I was brought up, and it was used a lot by one of my high school teachers (a long time ago). It’s something to try to stick to everyday.
