Cara Khadaroo, MARLAManaging Director
I started the company Star Lettings and Property Management Ltd in October 2001 after working in the industry for 10 years prior. I enjoy all aspects of Lettings especially organising the office and day to day duties. However my husband and fellow Director believe that success cannot be achieved without a good team to work alongside you which I strongly believe that we have and we will continue to grow year on year.
If I am not running around properties I will be found running around after my 3 children who keep me extremely busy. My ideal day off would be sat on a beach relaxing with a good book.
Saleem Khadaroo, MARLAManaging Director
As one of the Directors at Star Lettings and Property Management Ltd I am driven to succeed with a great team behind me. I particularly enjoy overseeing refurbishment projects resulting in maximising rental income for our clients.
Out of work I enjoy the local seaside town where I have lived all my life and love being around my close friends and network of friends, many of which I attended school with. When I have time I am keen on reducing my golfing handicap and following general sport, including coaching and sponsoring the local football team our son plays for.
Chris WelchSenior Lettings Negotiator for Student Department
Having worked extensively in both residential and corporate Lettings, I am now enjoying working as the senior Negotiator at Star in the Student rental market. I am ARLA Propertymark qualified to level 3, with legislation frequently changing in the industry it is essential that we are up to date in our knowledge and understanding of the market.
When I am not busy at Star Lettings I enjoy spending time with my wife and two sons. Soon I will hopefully be able to take up sports again which has taken a back seat of late.

I started my career in Estate Agency over 30 years ago! Since then I have spent time in various roles in The Courts Service as well as Nursing as a paid hobby, yes, I am a workaholic! I retained an active interest in property over the years and am a Landlord myself so understand the pressures and huge responsibility it brings. I returned to Estate Agency 8 years ago as a Rental Manager in the mid Devon area and am proud to say that I was well known for my enthusiasm, commitment and honesty and hope to establish the same here at STAR Residential Lettings. I am MARLA qualified and currently studying for a higher qualification in the job that I am passionate about.
I am married with two children, both very sports orientated so my free time is spent with them, thankfully regularly at Rugby games which we all love! Walking our family dog is my cherished down time enjoying our beautiful Devonshire countryside.

Joe MilburnProperty Manager
Originally from Essex, I started off as an Adrenaline Junky Studying Outdoor Adventure at university here in Exeter, I then went on to work for an Outdoor Adventure company based in the South of France, I soon found my calling was no longer in Adventurous sports and more in getting hands on with DIY projects and large scale maintenance. After some time working as a Handyman I felt I wanted a challenge. This led me to Star Property Centre where I am able to assist tenants on how to resolve maintenance issues and relay this with contractors.
In my time outside of the Office, I am an avid Rugby player for my local team New Cross RFC and I also volunteer my time as a charity academy member for Looseheadz. A mental health charity based around the sporting world, mostly focused on Rugby.
