Maybe you have an agent already who is based far away and never seems to really care or respond? Perhaps you are a developer coming to the end of a project and wish to hand management over?
      If you've answered yes to any of these questions, then we can help. Our dedicated Block and Estate Management team based in Haverhill can take all of the day to day stresses away and handle all of the myriad of legal, technical, health and safety and accounting tasks and handle day to day management of your site.

Maybe you have the time to view property but lack the confidence to make a quick decision, and then lose out?
      We can help. We will sit down with you and discuss your requirements and identify the exact size, style, location and budget of property to start or expand your portfolio. We will then scour the market, including off-market opportunities, and source out suitable property before reporting back to you with all the key information you need to make a decision. We will then negotiate with the sellers agent for you and help organise and drive the purchase through.

    Speak to us today for a confidential conversation regarding your opportunity and we'll be more than happy to help with no obligation or consultation charges.
