Goodknight Property Management shortlisted in Poole Business Awards 2024

Goodknight Property Management is honoured to have been shortlisted for two prestigious awards at the Poole Business Awards 2024 in the Family Business of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the Year categories.

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 Family Business of The Year award recognises the unique nature of family-run companies and why family matters to their success. 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.

 “It is incredibly humbling to see our efforts and commitment to excellence acknowledged in this way,” Leana Knight said. “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 25th. Silver and gold awards will be handed out in each of the thirteen categories.

“Congratulations to all the other nominees,” Leana continued. “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!”
