After embarking upon research in to opening an Estate Agency to complement our legal practice, I had the good fortune to discover Southcourt Property. Not only was I to obtain excellent advice on setting up an Agency but also ……. I would recommend Southcourt to anyone wishing to open an Agency. Also their training is a bible to be relied on and proved really educational for me as a beginner

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 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.
Pointing me to the right direction step by step. Advice given is clear and concise.
I only bought the business package about 5 weeks ago, so I am still in the process of setting everything up, when clarification was needed I spoke to Southcourt, who I found very helpful and professional. It means a lot for someone like me as a new starter. Thank you.
