What our clients say

“I'm very proud to now be at the stage where I am 'dressing' my first HMO this evening after a 2 month complete refurb. It's been a long slog, but delighted with the end product, and so happy that many of the design decisions were effortless thanks to Julian Maurice's guidance and HMO Manual.”
Jacqueline Corden
“New colours to 2 bed flat, an extra £900 pa, bring it up to an additional £1500! Here's to the next! Many Thanks Julian for great tips...I've just shown 1st tenant 'the purple room' and she took it straightaway...£15 on paint, £19.99 on silver mirror, £20 on cushions & up by £600 a that's a fantastic ROI! My tradesmen had better get used to life beyond magnolia!”
Nikki Pope
