    Hi fellow Property Chat Forum members,

    Both Martin and I are delighted to announce that we are about to celebrate our first year of operations as from Wednesday 10 February 2016!

    The learning curve has been steep, our capabilities in problem solving has been refined, building our client base has been exciting and rewarding and building the business whilst managing risk has been a huge endeavour.

    We would like to thank our colleagues on this forum for your incredible support and advice including the property owners who have entrusted their important assets in our hands...we take our business very seriously and promise to work to our best capacity throughout 2016

    Congrats to you both! Feels good to run your own biz.

    If you are comfortable to share it, how many properties do you have under management after your first 12 months? I would be interested to know the growth rate for a new agency.
