Cedric Bleeker - Founder

Coffee Couch

“SFP Property recently secured a retail lease agreement for my company in a high demand location. It involved multiple parties and required sensitive and patient negotiations. My most notable impression is that SFP Property are tenacious in achieving goals that I have stipulated as a client. Within their process they command the most senior members of the team when appropriate no matter the size of the project to achieve the best results. This is why SFP Property are my first choice.”

Managing Director

Food Manufacturer

“SFP Restructuring managed the administration of the company we had started. This allowed us to regroup and move forward through what can only be described as one of the most difficult times in our lives. We now have a great growing successful company that we are in control of.”

Cathy Page

Commercial Premises & Facilities Manager, Eastend Homes

“SFP property have worked for Eastend Homes as property consultants for three years; the team have dealt with all matters relating to our commercial portfolio from advice to undertaking specific projects relating to our regeneration programme. They have a proactive and dynamic approach in dealing with our requests and because of this we are more than happy to recommend them.”

Daniel Lovett-Horn

Head of Sales – ICS Accounting

“We have been working with SFP MVL Solutions for over a year, and during this time we have had fantastic customer service with quick response times delivering an all-round high-quality service. SFP release 80% of assets on day one of appointment, which is a great bonus.”

Head Of Regional Operations - Metro Bank

“We had the opportunity to use this service for a customer. The Metro RM and SFP visited and spent valuable time with the customer assessing the Arrears that had been accumulating and then offering a revisit in later months. SFP then summarised the position for us via a comprehensive e-mail which had the added benefit of satisfying our credit team. Monthly updates were scheduled via conference call so that we could monitor progress & then react quickly if deterioration was spotted. I would certainly use this service again in future and recommend it to others.“
