Our head office is situated at the gateway to South Belfast and less than 200 yards from Queens University and Queens Student Union.
We have a strong recognisable brand and the quality of our properties are well known to many tenants and a diverse range of tenants. It is not unusual for us to let properties to the children of former students often with the parents accompanying on viewings they have remembered us from over 30 years ago, and in one case we were letting them the same property it had however had had three refurbishments in the gap.
We completed hundreds of valuations every year giving us a detailed and widespread knowledge of the local and regional market in Northern Ireland. We take account of recent lettings the local area the best restaurants, coffee shops, parks, new retails shops and of course the location with its transport links.

We can arrange a viewing 7 days a week 24 hours a day subject to availability of the vendor. Our recent research has suggested that around 40% of our viewings are carried out outside the normal office hours and at weekends. All our viewings are accompanied by a trained and senior member of the team not someone to just open the door and let viewers in.This means we can use our expertise to help sell your property

At the last count there are over 6 individual laws governing the letting of a property in Northern Ireland and every year for the last 8 years there has been another layer of red tape added to the lettings process from EPC's, Landlord registration, Tenant deposit regulations, Gas Safety Regulations, Fire Safety, HMO requirements, the list goes on and on and there is no sign this is going to be anything other than ongoing further statutory and regulatory burden on Landlords. Professional independent advice has never been so important.
We aren't saying these things are bad and indeed all our landlords normally met these regulations before the legislations was introduced due to our relationship and 100% management service so many of our long standing clients haven't suddenly felt they have extra work to do each year.
We are a regulated RICS firm with two Fellows of the RICS and a team whose experience is well in excess of 100 years.
