The rest of the team at MRA are always polite, friendly and helpful and we highly recommend the company and the services they offer."

Peter will always find a solution to all your property needs and matters – his creative talent, input and valuable knowledge is where he really shines above the rest “bar none”!

Good, practical advice on all property aspects, including new leases, professional discussions with existing Landlords and advice generally. At all times the service has been prompt, professional and cost-effective.  Communication skills are first rate and we have confidence in the calibre of MRA’s team and their ability to provide commercial insight and evolve innovative win / win solutions."

Morley Riches and Ablewhite are a professional friend of Handelsbanken and  understood from a very early stage what we were looking for from their reports. They  have been extremely prompt in their delivery  of valuations and more than happy to discuss all aspects of the property market within our catchment area, which we find very valuable.  Overall a pleasure to deal with."
