Trainee Property Manager

0131 447 4453


Luke is the newest member of the Chapmans’ team and will be our new Trainee Property Manager. Having completed his studies at Edinburgh University gaining a First-Class Honors in Law, as well as a Diploma in Professional Legal Practice with Distinction; Luke went on to complete his training as a solicitor, qualifying into property finance. Deciding he wanted a change of career direction, the legal sector’s loss is Chapmans’ gain.

Luke’s aim is to bring and adapt the skills and knowledge that he has gained in previous roles to his new position here at Chapmans. These include being a team player, excellent organisational skills, liaising with clients, being a bit of a techie whizz and offering an exceptional level of customer service.

Within his role, he will also be supporting our Lead Property Managers (and most particularly Lorraine) with:

  • Preparing new properties for let
  • Assisting with check-ins and outs
  • Preparing tenants for property inspections and writing reports for landlords
  • Ensuring safety certificates and annual maintenance checks are up to date
  • Meeting and showing prospective tenants around properties

Not only is Luke an avid snowboarder, footballer and hiker he has also traversed the famous Peruvian Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, trekked for three days along a secluded stretch the Great Wall of China and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for charity!

Hardworking, a fast and eager learner with his infectiously warm personality – Luke is a fantastic addition to our growing team.

On a personal note…

My Favourite Place in Edinburgh – The city centre. I live near Lothian Road and love living in the heart of the city.

Favourite Holiday – Belfast. Had a brilliant weekend away across the water with my better half. Soaked in the sights, soaked in the history and soaked in the craft beer. Would definitely go back!

Favourite Food – A supersize extra-hot steak strips burrito from Bonnie Burrito.

Favourite Film – Edge of Tomorrow. Comedy, romance, war, drama and time-travelling aliens – this movie has it all!

Favourite things to do in my spare time – Practice my guitar, hike to the summits of Munros and play 5-a-side football.
