Goodknight Property Management scoops two awards at the Poole Business Awards 2024

Goodknight Property Management is honoured to have won two prestigious awards at the Poole Business Awards 2024. Founder Leana Knight was crowned Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and the business collected Silver in the Family Business category.

Run by a husband-and-wife team, Goodknight Property Management was founded by property expert Leana Knight in 2019. Leana 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. Working with landlords, they create beautiful, well-appointed co-living homes for working professionals, providing much-needed accommodation and boosting the local economy in Poole.

Organised by Marketing West, the Poole Business Awards recognise and reward local businesses that have significantly contributed to the local economy. First launched in 2021, a spokesperson said entries this year were higher in both number and quality, demonstrating the continued growth of the awards.

The awards ceremony took place at Bournemouth University on June 25th and was well attended by over sixty people. As Nigel Reeve from Marketing West said, "The businesses here today are the stars".

The Young Entrepreneur Award highlights individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the workplace or development of their own company and demonstrated excellent performance, initiative, and entrepreneurial spirit. Judges commented on Leana's "entrepreneurial business spirit", saying she was "ambitious, hardworking, focussed, confident and knew what she wanted to achieve with her business and how to get there."

The Family Business of The Year award recognises the unique nature of family-run companies and why family matters to their success. Judges were impressed by this husband-and-wife team, whose clients had described them as "the gold standard in letting agents" and "excellent in every aspect."

"What an incredible day! We are absolutely on cloud 9," Leana commented after the awards. "I am deeply flattered and honoured to win Gold for 'Young Entrepreneur' and Silver for 'Family Business'. We put our heart and soul into this business and strongly believe in the direction we are taking it. To receive such recognition has fuelled our fire to keep pushing for bigger and better for our tenants and landlords.

Thank you to Poole Business Awards and ActionCOACH UK for an outstanding awards ceremony and for bringing such esteemed local businesses together. Congratulations to all the other winners."
