  • Established network of local, experienced and trustworthy experts and tradespeople for effective response to range of issues
  • Experienced Operations Management, including owner liability, site risk and cost management, company secretarial incl. AGM and reporting

Duncan Massey, Director at The Salcombe said: “With 35 or so owners, one of the first actions Pebbles undertook was to assess the communication between the Board and the other owners.  Communication is always likely to be a problem.  The solution Pebbles came up with was to design a dedicated website, called Salcombe Online  which had free access to all members, and was backed up by the Dwellant online tool.  The website has been a small revolution in terms of the development of The Salcombe, and has certainly brought our communications into the 21st century.  Communication is much easier, and the owners are much happier!”

Communication is much easier, and the owners are much happier!
