Skipton Properties Celebrates International Women’s Day

And also Women in Construction Week!

Today on International Women’s Day, Skipton Properties is proud to celebrate the women who work with us and the values that guide our business. As a company run by two successful women, Sarah and Caroline, we are honoured to acknowledge the achievements of women worldwide.

Speaking of achievements, Sarah, the company’s Managing Director, handles day-to-day operations at Skipton Properties and shares her insight into the industry as Chair of the House Builders Association. When asked about her role, Sarah discussed the challenges of balancing work and home life. As a working mum, she emphasised the importance of acknowledging the difficulty of juggling responsibilities. She expressed gratitude for her supportive husband, who shares the workload with her every day. Sarah strives to do as much as she can for her children and attends many school activities, but acknowledges that it requires careful coordination to manage everything.

As the Director in charge of sales, marketing, and design, Caroline collaborates closely with the team to evaluate our homes’ aesthetics inside and out. Her primary advice is to conquer one’s, inner critic. Caroline notes that imposter syndrome is a prevalent issue among women, including herself, and it’s something that she battles every day. “Women often underestimate their abilities and undersell themselves, which can lead to hesitancy to apply for certain positions or negotiate for better salaries.”

Considering two sisters lead our company, we understand the importance of family and strive to create homes where families can thrive. We believe in creating homes that are not just buildings but spaces that inspire, motivate, and nurture. Our heart is in every home we build, and we are proud to be a part of the lives of so many families.

Our values of excellence, creativity and innovation, family, and heart are at the core of everything we do. We strive for excellence in every aspect of our work, from the quality of our homes to the relationships we build with our customers. We are creative and innovative, always looking for new ways to exceed expectations and meet the needs of our customers.

We want to acknowledge and celebrate the incredible women who work for us, from our Sales Advisors to our team in our head office. We are grateful for their hard work, dedication, and passion. Our team of women is a vital part of our success, and we are proud to have them as part of our Skipton family.
