They successfully push boundaries in how the sector sells homes and engages with their customers; this is done by 3 basic rules:

1 - Be Happy
2 - Be Awesome
3 - Help Others

Amy is also chair of the National Housing Group and is passionate about raising the profile of shared ownership within Government and lenders. Her work with the group has had some pivotal changes for the tenure to ensure it becomes a 4th tenure of choice.

Due to her passion for shared ownership and selling homes, Amy was entered in to the dizzy hall of 24 Housing top 50 power players fame; a new entry at 45. If you know Amy, you know she can be slightly competitive, so lets hope she is at least 44 next year!
