Blue i 2018: A Look Back on An Amazing Year

2018 was a great year for us at Blue i Properties, we saw a lot of positive changes. Perhaps the biggest change is that we moved. We were previously located on Stanley Street, but we are now at 30a Ashbourne Road in Derby. Feel free to pop in and see us any time if you have a query and if you do happen to drop by, you’ll get a chance to meet our three newest employees.

We welcomed Debbie Collins into our Blue i family, whose bubbly personality has been a great addition to the office. We also hired two new greeters: Chip and Jaq. These two loveable Staffie Crosses have become the first faces people see when they come into the Blue i office and they like to greet everyone enthusiastically. And we have continued to uphold our promise to deliver comfort and security to our tenants.

Prompt and proper maintenance is something that we at Blue i Properties pride ourselves on and we know that this is very important to our tenants. Be it a leaky tap, mould and mildew, or a broken boiler; you can easily report a repair through the easy-to-use system on our website.

We hold ourselves to a high standard at Blue i and the quality of our properties reflects that so in 2018, we also undertook major renovations on several of our properties. We completely refurbished five properties - two houses and three flats (photos to follow) - and you can also look out for our new signs.

We are forward-looking at Blue i so we have updated our signage for the new year. And going into next year, we want to keep growing. We are looking to welcome more landlords into our Blue i family and expand our professional and graduate properties. Overall, 2018 was an amazing year and we are looking forward to 2019.

Chip's Chatters

 Jaq and Chip – sitting on the front chairs in the Blue i office on Ashbourne Road
 
My name is Chip, on the right in the photo sitting on the chairs in the Blue i office and my older brother is Jaq on the left and together
we are the most recent additions to the Blue i family.
 
We’re two loveable Staffie-Crosses and we both have white coats but I’m slightly bigger than Jaq. Having white fur means that we
might occasionally shed a few hairs that can show up on black leggings or trousers, but it’s not too bad as it brushes off very easily.
 
William and Maryvonne adopted us from the Just for Dogs Rescue Centre in Brailsford, which they’ve supported for almost 30 years.
This means that we don’t know exactly how old we are, but we think that I’m about nine -years-old and that Jaq is about ten.
Although I am nine years old, this means I am about 56 years old in human years but despite my age I still rush around like a puppy
of nine months!
