What people say about working with us

  • "Being a local business in Colchester, we seek to establish relationships with local professionals in certain key areas of business. 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."
    Russell Felstead, Handelsbanken
  • "Peter Riches of MRA has managed an industrial property we own for the last 10 years and we have been delighted with the way our business has been handled. We have always found Peter to be very professional in his attitude; he has a good understanding of what we are trying to achieve, listens to our ideas and offers suggestions of his own. The rest of the team at MRA are always polite, friendly and helpful and we highly recommend the company and the services they offer."
    A J Kernahan, Developments Limited
  • "Morley Riches & Ablewhite have managed two of our multi-let office investments since 2008.  We have always been completely satisfied with their performance and feel comfortable that our tenants are in safe hands.  Rents are always collected promptly and accounted to us accurately.  Service charge accounts are always well maintained and presented to our tenants. We have also instructed Peter Riches to undertake a range of professional work on other properties in our portfolio including valuations, rent reviews, records of condition and schedules of dilapidation.  Again, we have always been pleased with the outcome and as a result have been happy to recommend him to other property owners known to us."
    Graham Holdgate, Moreland Limited
  • "I have known Peter Riches and indeed some of his staff for many years now.  Our family and I in particular have built a close relationship with Peter, instructing him on numerous occasions for projects, lease renewals, rent reviews etc. and have always found him to be honest, reliable and extremely efficient. 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”! I would have no hesitation in recommending him or his staff for all your property needs."
    Aaron Taub, Advantage Property Group
  • "Morley, Riches & Ablewhite – forgettable name, but seriously unforgettable service! We engaged MRA about 3 years’ ago on recommendation.  We have never regretted it. 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."
    John May, Director, Thompson & Morgan Group Holdings Limited
  • "I have worked with Morley Riches and Ablewhite for several years. I have always found them to be trustworthy, professional, responsive and accurate while offering a flexible approach to problem solving. They provide excellent value for money and also deliver additional value through their thorough knowledge and network. Reputation and branding are important to any business so it’s important to select organisations who have a compatible constitution and culture. MRA demonstrate empathy with corporate objectives, they manage customer relationships effectively and efficiently and work seamlessly as part of a team. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a professional property service."
