Client Testimonials, Reviews and Award Winners
When deciding which route to take to the lettings and estate agency business, it’s essential that you make the right choice. Your success could well depend upon it. Here at Southcourt Property not only do we possess considerable hands-on experience in the lettings, sales and property industry, we also have an unbeatable track record in providing powerful and effective training and start-up packages for new letting agents. The results speak for themselves – see the table below. This is your chance to join us and share in their success!
Our clients share a huge number of prestigious Industry Awards between them 2011 to 2019. Results achieved after starting up with and still using the systems we provided and recommended –
“…the thing is with Southcourt, it gives us everything we need to get started, including the backend software, portal uploads, etc which would be difficult for anyone to set up on their own, especially if they have low technical ability. I can imagine there’s a lot of organisation within your company to keep on top of it. Without your package, it’s unlikely we’d have ever started the company so even with the few hiccups we’ve had, ultimately I think it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in my adult life”.
“After researching the available start-up options I decided the Southcourt Package was by far the best choice due to their successful track record. When we started up it helped us massively, and is definitely part of our success. It is affordable, highly professional and innovative and allowed us to gain new clients quickly and effectively. There is no doubt that it is the best option if you want to start and grow a profitable business. I certainly made the right choice because we’ve just won the Sunday Times Letting Agent of the Year”
John Paul – Managing Director, Castledene Group
“The Southcourt Business Package was brilliant! It basically allowed me to learn everything I needed to know to sign up landlords, run my agency from home to fit in with my family and lifestyle then gradually grow the business at the speed I wanted. I also used their support service fairly often at the start and I have to say they really helped me get going – as Mike will testify to!”
Venessa – VA Property Consultants
“Hi to everyone, A big thank you to Southcourt for all their help and support they have given us over the past 6 months. We regularly refer to the manual and keep in contact with Southcourt for their advice.We work from home and have no high street office which means keeping the overheads to a minimum.Our business is continuously building. Once again, Many Thanks.”
“Firstly let me congratulate you on a wonderful product, we have been going a few months now, and everyone has commented on the quality of the website, and the professionalism of our company, all due to your kind assistance in your package which we bought from you. Many thanks, ”
Hi all, Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and support since we set up our company. The initial pack we purchased was absolutely priceless and enabled us to build a two office business from nothing (soon to be 3) but without your wonderful support and knowledge, not to mention our brilliant new website courtesy of you, then I am sure we wouldn’t have had either the confidence or the know how to move the business forward the way it has.
Jay Coleman – Angelwoods Residential
Just to let you know we are now up and running and live. And from following advice in the manual within 48 hours our first portfolio of 5 flats and 1 house from one landlord was secured! Many thanks.
“As discussed yesterday we have found the help & assistance of Southcourt invaluable with developing and expanding our business. We have really appreciated your professional and also personal guidance. We cannot praise you highly enough and recommend you to anyone whom needs assistance in the lettings arena. Regards,”
“I have found the Southcourt Business Package to be invaluable. Within weeks of starting the business I have let several properties, and taken on three Investment Landlords all owning a minimum of 9 properties each. Things have snowballed and I’m happy to say recommendations from existing landlord clients keep coming in. The Southcourt manual is my bible and keeps me on track at times when I’m feeling overwhelmed. And it is so reassuring to know that someone is at the end of the phone to ask the occasional piece of advice. I am so thankful that I didn’t go down the Franchise route and handover £20,000 for something that wouldn’t even be wholly mine. Thanks for making this all possible!”
“The stamp of a good business opportunity should always be measured not just by the initial enquiry, or by the value of the proposition (something I can certainly recommend) but by the after service. To this end I would just like to say a huge thank you to every one at Southcourt Property. You have been and continue to be absolutely first class, professional and speedy in answering all of my questions and queries. I would not hesitate to recommend your business opportunity, great value and great service. Kind regards,”
Terry Booth – Ashcourt Lettings
“Just wanted to thank you for the Southcourt training package. Has everything in it that you need, some great ideas for ways to attract new business and the telephone support is a real bonus. Thanks for all your help.”
Stephen Mountfield – Pattersons Estates
“I was pleased to find it easy to understand, and that everything I needed to know was covered. It is brilliant! After some initial marketing I had calls from 3 landlords, and have already let their properties. The fee income has more than covered my costs. Thank you again for a superb product.”
Mr C A Moreton
“Thank you so much for enabling me to create such a great business. I now own a thriving lettings business which is growing all the time. Your support, help and experience have been invaluable and it is very reassuring to know that your office is only a phone call away and that you are happy for me to contact you and your staff with any queries etc! What a fantastic opportunity you offer – thank you again.”
Sarah Bernhardt – Millstock Ltd
“You truly do supply all the knowledge and expertise necessary for this business – this must be worth thousands more.”

Mr B Walton

Very helpful when issues arise they are very quick to sort out any issues we have had over the years very professional and easy to get hold of hold

Ms Lena Potapova
“On the first anniversary of my business venture, I am writing to than you not only for the excellent business package that I used to kick-start my new career, but also for your ongoing assistance and advice when I needed it. Prior to buying your package I had explored the possibility of buying into a franchise and had spoken to a number of companies about the quality of their manuals, ongoing support and costs. Sad to say none were particularly impressive.
In retrospect, I made the right decision in buying your business package. The information supplied is easy to digest and practical, and whilst some patience and a little hard work is required in the early stages, there is no reason why a person of average competence should not make a success of their business using your business package.”
Mr Gerry Castles
““I would like to say thank you to all at Southcourt Property for the excellent and professional service we have received since purchasing our business package and website. As a practising paralegal I don’t make key decisions lightly, and it was only after careful research that I chose Southcourt, as they clearly had more to offer both in terms of experience and customer satisfaction than similar products on the market. As my business develops it is reassuring to know that your support is just a phone call or email away should it be required.”
“Just a short line to thank you for all the help you have given me in the setting up of my successful letting agency. The package alone was enough for me to confidently establish myself within the local market place. However, I would like to thank you for the time you have taken to answer my questions and provide me with guidance as and when I have needed it. You have certainly assisted me beyond my expectations -help with the website, and advising with difficult scenarios I have encountered. The package more than lived up to all that your literature promised! I would not hesitate to recommend the service to my friends and family, or anyone interested in setting up and running an extremely satisfying and rewarding business. ”
Mr Sean Randall
“We have been with Southcourt from when our business started. They have not only a very good service but more of a, as we see it, a valuable partner.
Their products are good value for money and advice is also money saving in this competitive market.
We would recommend Southcourt to all but never will as we want to be the only ones that has this good service!!”
Mr Erfaan – City Locations
“I want to thank everyone at Southcourt Property for their exceptional delivery of true customer service. I was particularly impressed with their prompt regular updates via email whenever I raise a support ticket. The response was timely and their staff were very knowledgeable. My website is now live and I am loving it. Fabi and all the Project Team, you are the best. You all are fantastic at what you do and great value for money. I will recommend you over and over again to my friends and family, because you are simply the best….#SouthcourtRocks”
Mr Olu Afuwape
“Wonderful Business Package & wonderful support!! We thought long and hard about if it was the right option. We decided to purchase this package. It was the best thing we ever did. Although we have not used the support much due to the extensive detail in the manual it has been invaluable. We have grown significantly and have now opened our first High Street Branch and are qualified in Sales and Lettings. All this would not have be possible without the package and support from Southcourt. We would recommend this package to others thinking of starting as a Letting Agent.”
Graham Scott – Letzmove
“I would just like to thank you for the excellent business package and to provide a reference for your use as you wish as follows:’ I would personally never recommend your product to anybody if they are local to me – I would be frightenened of the competition it would surely generate!’”
Mr John Murtagh
“May I take this opportunity to thank you for the business package. Having read the manual from cover to cover I can now say I have discovered a business opportunity where the cost is fully justified and the opportunity is genuine. Like many people I was sceptical when reading other peoples testimonials just like someone would be reading this one, but my trust was fully rewarded.”
Mr L Tremayne
“I would advise that we have now commenced trading and indeed have our first 4 properties. I will be in touch with the Web site guys today and therefore could you please let me have my user i.d. I am very impressed with your business package and consider it excellent value for money. Please feel free to use my name as a reference at any time. Thanks for all your help to date.”
Mr Nigel Elworthy
“Once again I would like to say how helpful it is to have a PRACTICAL manual when you are starting out in a new field. I wholeheartedly recommend that anyone who is thinking of taking steps to become a letting agent buys your product.”
“Well, we seem to be up and running a little earlier than expected so now is the time to request a User ID for the above software. We have found the Southcourt Pack absolutely invaluable, a quality product at a very affordable price.”
Ms S Bailey
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for my business package and the assistance I have received since. I am extremely impressed with both.”
Mr David Tickner
“Thank you so much for your business package. I have now been up and running for 2 weeks and have 3 houses on my books and I have just accepted a holding deposit on 2 of them. You really know your stuff! My Agency name is Lettings and my contact numbers are . I have also had an enquiry this morning from a lady who is looking for 4 bed house around Newbury or Winchester for 6 months due to flood damage. Please can you pass my details on to any agency that you think would be suitable to this lady.”
“I just wanted to write to say how very impressed I was with the ease of the set up with my new website. It has been well designed and the level of service has been second to none. I would reccomend you to anyone and everyone, I can’t imagine getting a better service anywhere and after an awful past experience with the last company, I am thrilled with how the site has turned out, more so by your level of knowledge and you’re absolute patience with me as a bit of a technophobe, thankyou thankyou thankyou,”
Mr J Coleman (2nd testimonial)
Dear Reader, I’ll be completely honest here. I had years of property experience but lacked in areas. So after searching I came across southcourt lettings opportunity. I could not find anything like this out there. It seemed to good to be true, websites, manuals, templates, members areas, ongoing support… It’s a deal to be had. I’m now off on a great start. Thank you Southcourt.
Michael Hussein – Heart Property
“The team at Southcourt is amazing. Communication is great. Everything works as it should and they keep up with technological evolutions and listen well to the needs of their customers.
Once we got lured with never realised promises to swap our website over to another company. After weeks nothing had materialized, the guys in India couldn’t figure out how to make it work and we couldn’t figure out what was going on.
When time passed and they started to request remote access to our PCs and it turned out they redirect our business domain name to their charity site (!) we drew the line (pretty late) and asked what Southcourt could do for us. Old friends sake.
Southcourt had us up and running again in hours. Although we had left them they had kept our website content in a backup.
Southcourt is the best partner a business can have.”
Mr Ibrahim Hublou
“I was a little nervous starting a new business on my own with no help until I came across Southcourt. I spent a long time debating regards who to use as the internet can be a scary place of unknown Companies which are not easily contacted if you have any problems.
Steve gave me the confidence to move forward with the venture & after calling endless times with a whole host of questions before purchasing the pack I felt they were the right Company for me.
I could not praise them enough for their patience helping me to start from scratch.
A BIG THANK YOU to Steve & the team !”
“May I also say that myself and business partner are extremely SATISFIED AND IMPRESSED with the quality and professionalism that the lettings package included and would not hesitate in recommending your services to any other potential client. Kind regards,”
David Ashcroft (Lancs)
“Southcourt customer service is the best I have ever experienced. Big Thank You to Steve who has helped me out a lot since I have started my business. I am where I am now thanks to him. Even till this day if I need help, he always finds a solution to everything.”
Kazaan from Luton
“We took on 11 properties last week and another 2 very large ones this week at around £2,500 pcm so absolutely thrilled so far and your support and bible are totally invaluable! Thanks again, Have a good day, B,”
Ms Belinda Scott – Wiltshire
“Can I just say you guys are excellent! I went through hundreds of franchises, before I chose you guys and every day that goes by convinces me more what an excellent service and package you have produced. Kind Regards,”
Sajid Siddiqui – Middlesex
“While I’m on, I’d like to commend your start-up pack. It was a great way to get going in the lettings business. I have been going for just four months and have 15 properties tenanted with another 10 advertised on my site. I did start with a very attractive offer for landlords, but I’d rather get things moving than risk sitting on my hands for months.”
Jack Gallagher – Glasgow
“Although i’m a new agent who’s not even stated yet .iv’e so far made three calls to to Southcourt property services with basic business questions regarding the future running of my business ,and they have always been very polite and helpful towards me .
so this all bodes well for the future ,when i start trading seriously .
This is giving me tremendous confidence, that Southcourt really are there for you when you have a problem .”
“Southcourt Property provided an extremely efficient, friendly and professional service. They worked closely with us on our start-up and helped provide us with assistance and information that was beneficial to our needs. We would recommend them strongly.”
Chris – Warwickshire
“Many thanks for your support in setting up my business which is going extremely well and is keeping me very busy. I started business on 1st August and to date have 20 properties on my books with 7 already let and 3 reserved. Long may this continue!!”
Gillian Moseley – Pembrokeshire
“Many thanks for your help and assistance in setting up our Lettings Agency. Your manual and set-up for files, letters and forms was easily followed and has permitted us to soon be approaching 100 properties under management or lettings completed, after trading for just over two years. I have to say that your telephone assistance in the beginning was most helpful, and I was very impressed with the fact that although it was clear that your office was extremely busy, you nevertheless didn’t mind talking us through our queries. As I say many thanks and all the best for the future.”
Ken Wilson – Kent
“We write to express our sincere thanks to all at Southcourt for producing such a comprehensive and easily understood Guide to starting and running a Property Management business, and for all the help and advice given during the last couple of months since we opened our business in early March. As your know, we have now been running for 8 weeks and already have 8 managed properties on our books (bang on target!), as well as several others on a ‘let only’ basis. We’re also selling a shop as a going concern for a client who originally came to us to let his flat -one thing leads to another! We currently have leads which should double the number of managed properties in the next few weeks, so we’re very pleased with progress. Your Business Package has made such a quick start possible by teaching us all we needed to know inside a few days. Great value for money!”
Mr and Mrs McLellan
“It is now three months since we ordered the Southcourt Property Management Complete Business Package and I would like to take this opportunity to give you some feedback having had sometime to put it to use. This comprehensive volume has already proved its worth and we have barely scratched the surface. It really does cover every conceivable aspect of residential lettings and management. It is packed with so many useful ideas for everyday use. It is very clearly laid out making it easy for the reader to locate specific information required. We are already generating an income, and we have barely scratched the surface. We found the procedures and methods very clear to follow, and were able to set up rapidly and with ease. Much of our activity has to be attributed to our use of the business package. I can definitely say to anyone thinking of establishing a residential lettings business (be it part-time or full-time) – this volume is a must, overlook it at your peril and our gain”
Mr R Cork
“I received my business pack a couple of weeks ago and having reviewed it I can only say I would recommend it to anyone thinking of starting a letting agency, I really cant fault it I say this with some experience of the business having worked in a letting agency 15 years ago, I have also been a landlord for the past few years.
One thing I don’t think I mentioned was a few years ago I purchased and operated a successful franchise in a service industry. I had no complaints regarding my franchisor and the franchise I bought, however because of this experience I know what fantastic value your pack represents. Regards,”
Ian Cowley – Dorset
“I wanted to thank you for the manual and the accompanying literature and software. I have nothing but praise for the whole package. The manual was written clearly, produced professionally and, although rare these days, written in perfect English. Obviously it is the content that matters most and I can say without doubt that this manual is the best that I have seen. All the information is there and I did not have to wade through reams of padding to find it. I wanted to learn about this business because I have several investment properties and have never been too keen on parting with 12% of the rental income. I was quite sure that I could save this expense and now I have the information that I need. More importantly, I now see the huge potential that this business has in its own right. I plan to devote a large amount of time to this business and have every confidence that I will be successful. The fact that you are available for advice and guidance through the help-line is very encouraging and will be invaluable to many of your clients. Although I have only called for help with accessing the document files so far, I found you to be both approachable and professional. I feel sure that, armed with your manual, anyone could make a success of this business if they work hard enough. It makes a pleasant change to deal with somebody who seems to care about their customers. Thank you again”
John Cuggy – Devon Homes
“It’s always a pleasure to follow up and to congratulate you on a successful product or service. Few months ago I purchased your self start Business Package. Least was I to know at that time how useful your course is going to prove for me in the future. For months I was contemplating of starting my own letting & management agency. Not having any experience of he field the obvious alternative was to look for a franchised business, which would have helped in providing the technical know-how to successfully conduct the business. It didn’t take me long to find out that this route was going to prove not only very costly but also curtailing some of the independence that one take for granted when going into their own business. Your Business Package certainly takes care of the above drawbacks. Not only have you provided a self-study course, which is absolutely value for money, but you have also given us new starters in this business an edge in the industry. And all this at a fraction of the price one would have to pay for a franchise! I have been running my letting business for over a month now. Even though it’s early days to comment on its success yet, I feel confident that under the guidance of your instructions it will prove to be a roaring success. Thank you….very much!”
Mr M Merchant
“We are now set up in the above premises, and I am finding the Southcourt Business Package a godsend. I recently attended a day course run by ARLA entitled ‘A Practical Guide to Setting Up in Lettings’. It made me realise how much I had already learned from your business package, but more importantly it made me realise what excellent value the package is. To gain the same knowledge and get the same information would cost me thousands in courses, and even then I doubt it would be so comprehensive. It is my indispensible bible!”
Ms D Edgar
“I would also like to say that it was the first time I called you yesterday and was very impressed with the service you provided me. It was better than I expected. Usually when companies know they have nothing further to gain from their customer than they would do everything they can to get you off the phone and keep the conversation short but this wasn’t the case when I called you. You provided me with help I need and in great details and for that I thank you very much.”
Mr S Kassamali
“Thanks for your assistance this morning re landlord pulling out of the deal. After studying the business pack for several weeks I have started trading and have already let a few places. The manual is excellent and full informative.”
“I am most grateful for your help last week – it is reassuring to know that expert advice is available at the end of the telephone. I have been going now for just five months and am now managing a total of twenty properties, with another twenty-two on my books. Things are moving faster than I thought possible.”
Mr K Sivanathan
“Thank you for forwarding me the information concerning Section 8 of the Housing Act. Whilst writing I would like to mention that I have found your business package to be an indispensible tool in the development of my business, and I refer to the manual constantly. The telephone helpline has also proved to be invaluable.”
Mr P Walker
“Your guide is very well written and structured and has proven invaluable in all areas of the business start-up to date. In fact, the guide is so comprehensive that it is difficult to envisage us activating your free 12 month Telephone helpline!”
Ms Jane Bennett
Good value for money
Prompt response to enquiries
procedures were clear and easy to follow”
Ibrahim – Solmet Properties
“I purchased you package 8 months ago and spent an entire month studying, researching and understanding how it all worked. I am still learning as I go along. I do not come from the property world, I was just a humble accountant who needed a change of scenery, and that is exactly what I got! To date I am on my 32nd letting, and my expenses have been minimal. Your marketing methods have paid off, and I have taken a lot of business from the larger high street operators. The smaller agent operating from home definitely has the edge over the bigger boys. I can recommend this business to anyone who wants to do something different and profitable. Get your action plan together and go for it. If I can do it anyone can.”
Mr J Dashwood
“Once again many thanks for your support at Southcourt. Our first year has gone very smoothly, in fact we have been surprised at how easy the business is to run. We knew things were going well, but were very surprised after working out our figures for the year to discover that our net profit is £65,000! We only have 25 on management, but have done a lot of lettings.”
Mr T Osgood
“Allow me to sincerely thank you for sending me the Business Package. What a wonderfully put together product! I consider myself most fortunate to have found it. The information and material is exceptionally concise and the software excellent. It would have taken me many months and a great deal of money to have sourced anything remotely similar.”
Mr G Chapman
“I feel compelled to write to you to express my gratitude for the service you have provided since purchasing your Business Package. It was only in August last year that I was about to hand over £10,000 to a franchise company to set up my own property management office. After seeing your advert and speaking to you I felt that I had nothing to lose in purchasing your product.
After only trading for 3 weeks I had already more than covered my cost, and was on my way not only to a new career, but owning my own business. The manual was clear and easily understood, and the fact that you provided documentation, software and a website made setting up a pleasure. Your advice on the free helpline has also been very helpful, and provides the added peace of mind that someone is always there if ever the need arises.
I have been trading for 6 months now, working form home, and am now managing twenty five properties, and have also found tenants for landlords who manage their own properties. A friend of mine has been so impressed that he has also purchased your Business Package and has now set up an office in Sutton Coldfield.
To sum up your product represents incredible value for money. I am only grateful that I spoke to Southcourt before venturing into a very costly franchise agreement. I would have no hesitation in recommending your product to anyone thinking of setting up his or her own letting business. I would be pleased for you to give my telephone number to anyone who would like to speak to me if they have any doubts.”
Mr Paul Talbot
“In 2006 I looked at various franchise options before setting up as a letting agency they all required a substantial cash investment and I would have been tied in to franchise agreements on a commission basis. The Southcourt package appealed to me for a very low cost it provided me with a website, forms, letters, helpline and a step by step guide to property management. Subsequently in 2017 we wanted to update our website and purchased a mobile friendly website from Southcourt Property Services at very low cost in comparison to web design company’s that we had looked at. I cannot rate Southcourt high enough and owe much of my success today to the help and services that they have provided to me over many years.”
Michael Mann, Plymouth Estates Ltd
“You have provided me with the detailed practical advice regarding the day to day operation of the business which I was requiring, and in addition, valuable guidance about marketing my services and giving the business a kick-start, which are already bearing fruit.”
Mr G Watt (BA Hons – Solicitor)
“Once again many thanks on your support at southcourt for making our first year easy and rewarding….”
“I am going ‘live’ on 14th April and would like a user ID for the software please. Thank you very much for the complete business package, it has been great in helping me to set up my own Residential Lettings & Property Management business. I have worked in the business for 3 years but would never had found it so easy to get up and running without it, the template forms and letters and the software package have proved invaluable. It is also great to know I have the support from yourselves if I need it. Worth every penny, (and probably more if I’m honest.) Thanks once again, Regards,”
Ms D Baldwin
“Just thought I would drop you a quick note to thank you for the business package. I have been trading now as Homes for just over a year and the business with your help is going from strength to strength. I already have a good reputation locally and am building a strong portfolio of properties, and more and more recommendations are coming in. The business with the help of your package is simple and anyone could make a success of it with a bit of hard work and commitment. Thank you again.”
Mr A Varney
“i have been in touch with southcourtproperty since 2014, very understanding, paitant, helpful and very professional with a excellent and strong team behind them!!!!!!”
“Southcourt Property provided my company with an excellent website and help my company gain more business with their professional design.”
“Just a short note to thank you and your staff for everything to date. It has now been a couple of years since I set up with the Southcourt Business Package, and although I was looking for a part time opportunity, it quickly snowballed into a full time one. As you know, I now have a very successful company, employ 6 staff and manage property well in excess of £35 million. Last month alone we let 23 properties. I would not have dreamt this possible a few years ago, and shall always be grateful to you for providing me with the opportunity to achieve this success, and for the valuable advice given on the phone by both you and your staff on the occasions that it has been required. Best regards,”
“On opening our letting agency 7 years ago, Southcourt Property Services was by far the best choice we made, as well as the most important. We cannot thank them enough for providing us with a website, property portal upload, hosting for our domain name and our emails, documents to start up and a superb customer service. The team are incredibly good a what they do, they are professional, available at all times, helpful and very reasonable with their charges. I would recommend them to anyone looking to start up a business, looking to switch hosting provider or database, update their website or in need of letting documentation. One stop shop in the property sector. Just an amazing relief knowing that all can be quickly done with one call. Thanks as always.”

“After years in pub management I was looking for a more relaxing business, and I seem to have found it in Property Management. Your Business Package has enabled me to virtually walk straight into the business. I started trading after only 3 weeks, and as you know, today was the first time I have needed to use the helpline after going more than 3 months. That shows how thorough and clear your guidance is. Your guide enabled me to change my life from working 120 hours per week to 40 hours per week with an income that is growing weekly…”
Mr Peter S Ierston
“My Agency is now up and running and it all looks pretty promising at the moment. Thanks for the business package, the manual has indeed become my bible with some well thumbed pages. The advice contained in it is invaluable in my opinion.”
Mr I Crosbie
“After years in pub management I was looking for a more relaxing business, and I seem to have found it in Property Management. Your Business Package has enabled me to virtually walk straight into the business. I started trading after only 3 days, and as you know, today was the first time I have needed to use the helpline after going more than 3 months. That shows how thorough and clear your manual is!”
Mr S Lerston
“Whilst writing I must compliment you on the Business Package. The manual has become our ‘Bible’. Our business has developed rapidly over the last 12 months, and thanks to your methods the ‘competition’ has been no competition at all!”
“I spoke to Steve today who was so helpful and the technical issues I have experienced this week have been promptly resolved .
Many thanks so nice to speak to someone .. so much more human than your online ticket system !!”
Nikki Gosney Lettings
“Southcourt is always on hand to assist when I have a query.. They always ring back if I send if a message was left.. They are just truly supurb.”
“We have always found Southcourt property services helpful, efficient and quick to respond to any requests.”
“EXCELLENT SUPPORT HIGH INTERPERSONAL SKILLS VALUE FOR MONEY FIRST CLASS SERVICE AND PRODUCT These are only few of the positive words I can describe the staff & products at Southcourt Property Services. I paid for the full training package including our website for Leone Property Services. As a result of the extensive but clear and informative training manual and support I have been able to launch our Property Services and within 6 months we are getting referals from local people and even Southwark Council to provide social housing accommodation. Southcourt staff are always willing to provide help even for computer and IT novices like myself. If you are thinking about investing with Southcourt – GO FOR IT. Your car will reduce in value ! But your experience & investment with Southcourt will produce heavy yields and profits.

“I have been dreaming of this business for so long and wondered how I was ever going to get started. My business package arrived when you said and I am very impressed with the quality and content. It is very fortunate I found your website, you have saved me from the large costs of franchising and the tie-ins associated – I dont know if I will ever be able to thank you enough for this.”
Mr P Smith
“Thank you for all the help you and your staff have given me in setting up and launching my successful letting agency. The package alone was enough for me to confidently establish myself within the local marketplace. However I would like to thank you personally for the time you have taken to answer my questions and to provide me with guidance as and when I have needed it. You have certainly assisted me beyond my expectations. Your Business Package has more than lived up to all that your literature promised!”
Mrs T Burrows
“Southcourt have been very prompt at responding to any queries/questions that I have had with my website and offered solutions.
Steve Bern has suggested an upgrade to my website which is desperately required, so thank you for that.”
“Your Package has been the foundation of our business, both in setting up and also for reference, and the helpline has proved to be a vital asset on the occasions that it was needed. I take this opportunity to thank you for your professional and helpful advice. We are delighted with our progress so far and are continuing to grow at a steady rate.”
Mr Eric Leyland
“Everyone at Prime Key Estates has valued the expertise and assistance given by Southcourt Property. We highly recommend their services,”
“Steve answered all my questions and was very helpful.”
“I bought the business package and website in 2013, the business package worth every penny I paid for it, as I find it very informative. I always go back to it even with my experience in letting now. The team at Southcourt property always responds to my query within 24hrs, that is what I call good service.”
“I am very pleased with the quick and efficient service which I received, thank you.”
“Good Advice and a human on the phone”
“Knowing that there is a wealth of support at your fingertips has given me confidence to develop my business.”
“Its just about a year since I made my first phone call to you to enquire about the Business package. I have only been trading since May. Please find time to look at the properties on my website to see why I am so happy with you at Southcourt. These does not include all the currently available properties nor does it include all that I have let recently!! Absolutely unbelievable stuff and you know what? I am still working part time, from home, at my own time and with no staff. I have just bought a BMW 3 Series to complement my new status! Why not ? Just thought I would let you know.”
Ms A Isabor
“Just a brief note to thank you for your time and help when I used the Telephone Support Line. I am much impressed by your patience and obvious expertise and as I am about to launch my website I may well be ringing again for advice. The more that I use and refer to the business package the happier I am with it.”
Mr B J Schofield
“Just thought that I would drop you a line to thank you for finally getting me into gear in the lettings business. Although I had been considering it for a while, it was our conversation together with your information pack that finally persuaded me. Anytime you require a testimonial please do not hesitate to contact me.”
Mr Mark Shaw
“‘We have used Southcourts lettings package and web design service for around 10 years now and have found their support and service excellent and a definite positive addition to our business'”
“I run a small lettings and property management company. When I started it I needed a professional webpage and supporting package to make my business stand out. I was very impressed with what Southcourt could offer. Their lettings ‘package’ was perfect and great value for money to get the business started. Their ongoing support has been excellent in supporting and promoting the business. Overall I would (and have) recommended Southcourt when asked about who I use and how good they are.”
“I have completed my study and preparation and must compliment you on the clear and concise way it is written. The letters and documents supplied have been so helpful and essential to creating the professional image I am trying to portray. I have already taken on five properties in the Docklands and SE areas and have also been receiving enquiries from tenants, using the marketing methods recommended. Thank you so much, I am so pleased with the business package.”
Mr D Mayne
“…ps: I am taking a residential and management course via Manchester university and the training and advice you are giving is par with the university training, which is proof to me that your business package has been worth every penny. many thanks.”
Mr P Phillips
“I bought your package just over 2 years ago, did everything you said in the manual and it worked a treat. I built the business to 105 managed properties, and have just sold up for £45K. I now need another website as I am setting up again in Devon.”
“I find the business package very good and very informative with A-Z of the letting business.”
Tola (2nd review)
“I have to say the website and the whole Southcourt package I purchased has been invaluable to me since losing my job three years ago and starting work for myself. I am immensely grateful to you for it! Thank you! I have recommended it to one other person, who I understand has now started her own Property Management business and will continue to recommend it to others as it is so good!”
“A great starter pack that gives you everything you need to set up your Lettings business, including a fully functional website with support.”
“With reference to our telephone conversation regarding VAT compliance etc., I would like to thank you for the invaluable help you have given over the last three years, I cannot thank you enough. You have set me up in business for life, and I have not once looked back.”
Mr P Kainth
“I am very new at starting a letting agent so it was a scary situation for me,Southcourt Property make it very simple in explaining things and are always there to help. The opportunity is very inexpensive and worth ten times over. I would definitely recommend.”
“Thank you for all the support. I would be happy to recommend the service to anyone in the future, it has made the set up very simple indeed! Best regards,”
“I recently signed up my first landlord today, which was an excellent experience. I went in a smart suit to show a professional image; however, the landlord mentioned that he had delt with other agencies in the past and they came in casual clothes, which made him feel a little more relaxed. Does this hold true for the majority of landlords, or should I continue to wear a smart suit for all my meetings with landlords? I guess the same question applies to tenants, too. In regards to the course, I am following it step-by-step and have found it a wonder. I have a meeting with another landlord on Sunday. Just to think, I only just started advertising on Thursday. Regards”
Mr J Simmons
“I received my business package yesterday. It is awesome!”
Ms Anthea Clarke
“I have already taken on 6 properties from one single landlord and this is not even being fully launched with the business!”
Mr N Akhtar

I was pleasantly surprised when I came across Southcourt as not only did they build the business a stylish and modern website I was also provided with a cd full of template letters and a huge folder named “All you need to set up your lettings business” ad they wasn’t wrong, that document covers basically everything we need to run a successful business. A big thanks to Steve who has helped every step of the way and also often congratulates us on our progress that we have been making.

“Highly professional, competency highly satisfactory and cannot be better.”
Maria Samuel (2nd review)
“As ever excellent support from Southcourt, professional and very speedy reply to my question.”
Terry Booth – Ashcourt Lettings
“Having decided to update the business property website, i was really impressed with the design templates, relevant information, image motion and ease of use of the Southcourt Property websites. Easy to navigate as a customer (which has really impressed me) and with a number of further information menus added (that i have found invaluable when assessing prospective tenants), it provides the facility to take all the information in one go without the need for further “interrogation”. The properties are presented magnificently with plenty of visual movement and it makes the whole process of dealing with the agent much more enjoyable and simple. It’s all about the property thereafter but as the website is the shop-front, we have just opened up head-office. Thank you to all at Southcourt Properties for making the whole process very easy and with nothing too much trouble at any time. I would not hesitate to recommend the services.”
“…very good company to work with, quick and always happy and helpful with any questions….”
“I recently started my new agency with Southcourt and I have to say the initial package and website are very good indeed. I’ve managed to get a few properties under management and have my first sale underway now. As a landlord myself, I feel it’s really good value for money and another string to my bow, really great for anyone who’s thinking of setting up in their local area.”
“For me, The Southcourt package is a ‘business in a box’, and that’s clearly helped by the fact that they are actually ‘doing’ the real estate business, unlike many of the others out there. This package has enabled me to set up my business from scratch, in a short space of time, with support when I’ve needed it. The website is modern and interactive, the manual is easy to use and all for a few hundred pounds. You can use their free agency software or link to their partner 10ninety for cloud software. Bargain I’d say. I’m ARLA and NAEA licenced and can only say, if you are thinking of setting up any kind of estate agency, I’d seriously consider Southcourt as one of your business partners.”
Shania Woodruff-Ellens – Dwellbeing
“My experience had been positive. They answered all my queries and helped along the way.
“Great service, quick response & quick turnaround. Many Thanks”
Donna – Platinum Property
“I’m on an excellent run on opening my own estate agents. Having worked for an estate agent previously I knew setting up my own will not be as easy as working for one.
I had a few options when it came to the idea of opening one; either just go as a rookey with the little experience and asking friends who are in the trade. This idea failed as no one wants to be a Good Samaritan these days. Lol
My other option was either to go as a franchise and gamble on high purchase but I know others failed.
Being cautious as I am I decided to go on a search and guess what? When I read Southcourt Property Services online advert I could not find anyone else that could offer so much information.
Next stage I contacted some customers who made testimonials and had really good feedback.
That was it for me as the cost for the service made sense so I went for the full business package and till now I’ve got to say it’s all worth it.”
“A fantastic reference manual and access to loads of great resources. Southcourt’s services have really helped get our new branch off to a flying start!”
“The Southcourt Property package is ideal for start up letting agencies. Steve Bern inparticular has been very helpful.“
“An excellent efficient service would highly recommend”
“very helpful and always happy to help when contacted,
would highly recommend to anyone.”
“I was very satisfied with the help I received especially the quick response.”
“I speak with conviction when I say had it not been for Southcourt and it’s letting package then I would never have built my business to the level it is now.
I think the whole package is so well tested and now tried by myself, even after 12 years , we still have an excellet relationship with the team and Mike and they have just completed our stunning new website.
We are so thrilled with the website, we are about to launch a new executive brand and we will be instructing the team again on this website as the transition was so easy from the other with no down time at all.
We can’t praise them enough, from a humble start , 12 years on and 3 offices later, I feel I owe a lot to Southcort.
Highly highly reccomended ***** FIVE STAR”
“I must say that having lost my ‘IT’ expert, it’s been handy for Southcourt to give me guidance, especially Jason. I shall probably be back at some stage for support.
If anyone wants to get into the estate agency business Southcourt Property Services Ltd provide you with a great service, great business package and great support. I think it’s fantastic and fantastic for anyone who wants to start their own estate agency business.”
“We are always happy to share feedback when receiving a service, whether it is good, indifferent or constructive – thankfully and appreciatively on this occasion it is VERY GOOD.
Our new website was remarkably easy to order – the communication was timely and very straight forward. We now have a much more contemporary looking website with a back-end CMS that makes it incredibly easy to adjust and change the content.
Thank you Southcourt – as discussed this is only v.2.0 and we have ideas for v.3.0 that we know we will need, and have discussed with you and won’t hesitate to come back and talk through with you in more detail.
Simple, quick, competitively priced and hassle-free.
PS. Nice people to deal with too!
