  • accountants, solicitors, engineers, and building control inspectors.

We attract block management clients because of this comprehensive integrated service.

How do managing agents and self managed owners find me and make contact?

These recommendations are all automatically linked to a postcode radius of where your business trades or can be nationally based if required. All your contact details are presented to the Resident user so leads come straight to you and they can add you to their contacts list.
