Alba Property are the husband and wife team, Omer Kolak and Hilary Jardine Kolak. We both have experience in the travel industry but of a different nature.
Omer was born and raised in Kalkan. He moved to Kas 12 years ago where he has worked, living in Gokseki. Omer has worked in the property management business for 9 years.He has experience with maintaining properties, pools and gardens and also co-ordinated property builds.
He is customer focused and enjoys meeting with guests on holiday and making sure that they have the best holiday experience possible. He has extensive knowledge and experience in the local legal processes and procedures. He is something of a facilitator and can make most things happen almost seamlessly – from setting up bank accounts and changing over electricity accounts to replacing bathrooms and sourcing specific materials.
He is a perfectionist and likes to understand how things work. Coupled with his first profession as a carpenter this results in a very handy and practical man. Omer is a passionate Galatasaray fan and loves enjoying the outdoors.
Hilary was born and raised in Scotland. After completing a university degree in Accountancy with French in Glasgow she spent a further two years in Scotland before moving to London where she worked until early 2013 when she moved to Kas.
She has worked in the travel industry since 2002. She has 12 years’ experience working in the finance departments of UK tour operators. She worked for Mark Warner Ltd for 6 years until 2008. During this time she held various resort management accounting roles culminating in the role of Financial Planning Manager.
She then worked for further 6 years as Financial Controller for Hotelplan Ltd for their Inghams holiday brand. This experience provided her with a good understanding of the various components required for a successful holiday. Hilary brings with her experience and understanding from the customer perspective as well as strong administrative skills. Hilary likes swimming in the summer, walking and jogging in the wintertime.
Team Kolak therefore brings our skill sets together as Alba Property with Omer focusing on maintenance of properties and the local rules and regulations and Hilary supporting Omer with the management of the administration, accounts and holiday rentals, keeping the cogs turning.
