urbanbubble is an award-winning residential property management agent, providing services to residential apartment schemes in the North West, Leeds and Sheffield.
The spark The business was launched by MD Michael Howard in 2008 from the spare bedroom of his city-centre apartment. Frustrated with the managing agent in place, Michael took over management of the 70 apartments in his block and urbanbubble was born.
The vision Our vision is to provide a service that doesn’t just manage, but cares, loves and tends to your home as you would yourself. We aim to provide a better option for Residents’ Management Companies disappointed with their service. Our passion for customer care and service deliver has helped us do just that for over 6000 properties across 90 residential schemes in and around Manchester and the North West.
Our future Nearly five years since inception, urbanbubble has built a multi award-winning reputation for offering the best service possible whilst providing genuine value for money.
