A company is nothing without its people
I have been trading here in Nice since April 2004 – there have been many good moments, some interesting moments, and very few not so good – but the one thing I have learned – good people are the most important aspect of prospering as a business and offering a great service and product to our clients (both owners and renters) If you are lucky enough to find the right people – then it is these people that truly make the business work – It is my name on door – but for sure without the right people nothing happens – so to briefly introduce you to the key people at Go-Nice. All office and cleaning staff are insured and accountable.
Paul Manion – Company Owner
I have lived and worked in Nice since summer 1999 – previously working in London in for Robert Bosch Ltd for 10 years in corporate sales and prior to that in estate management in West London. After working full-time and studying for a part-time degree in Business Administration (2:1) my brain had enough and followed by the rest of me I decided I wanted a lifestyle change and headed of to go Skiing in Grenoble (in French alps) and see where my Ski’s took me – after 3 months it was a train that took me to Nice. Arriving on 1st June 1999 and sitting on the Promenade beer in hand enjoying the sunshine and sights I decided to make Nice my home. I decided that if going to stay here long term I was going to do things right – so I gained the Carte Proffesionelle (the pre-requirement for any legal sales or rental agency) and set up a French registered property rental and sales company. I am based in office in Nice and often out and about seeing owners and renters and trying to keep things smoothly moving along. 13 years down the line from moving to Nice I love Nice, the promenade, the light, the food (amongst other things) even more and gain great pleasure from my work and helping people equally enjoy Nice and its surrounds.
Merilyn Cao – Property Manager
Merilyn has worked with me now for 8 busy years. She had previously been working many years in hospitality industry and then the yachting world working on some of the super mega yachts. She is qualified with a degree in Hotel and restaurant Management and originally from Philippines. This led her to the yachting industry and with her 3 lovely children moved to Nice 12 years ago she continued to work in the pressurized and demanding environment of the mega yachts (as you can imagine the skills needed to service these very demanding clients are extremely high)
Merilyn has brought these skills in abundance to my company – extremely organized and conscientious with good humour and easy smile but the ability to focus exactly on job in hand.
Merilyn originally started with me cleaning apartments – and immediately I was impressed by her focus and extremely high standards (these are not things you can teach – you either have them or not) Merilyn has them in abundance. As time progressed she has moved these skills to the office and manages all the daily bookings and is responsible for organizing the cleaning and maintenance of the properties.
Patrick Manion (my father) – Public Relations Manager
Pat has been around a bit he is now almost 89 years young and seen a few things – being an accountant, volunteer in Africa and working for UN…amongst things. As for his company role not quite sure how I can summarize what he does – but think we will go with Public Relations Manager for both Go-Nice and Nice itself – he certainly he enjoys Nice and can often be seen walking the Promenade and watching the world go by – and meeting the various guests that pop into the office giving recommendations of places to visit and places to eat…..and of course where to go for afternoon tea. In terms of work he offers words of guidance and wisdom that you gain through age and experience and has certainly helped me in my philosophy to my work and attitude to clients – being that the most important things is treat people with respect help them enjoy themselves and their holiday and work with a smile on your face and of course enjoy life!. Pat shares his time between Nice and London.
Paul, Merilyn, Patrick & all of the Go-Nice Team
See you in Nice!
