Here’s what some of our team say about working with Alexander Faulkner Partnership:
“I have worked for AFP for a year, which means that we went into lockdown three weeks after my first day! The team has worked so hard to adapt since then. I have found everyone at AFP to be very supportive. I can approach anybody in the business for help, and that’s made all the difference this year.” – Tamsin Withers, Regional Property Manager
“I really enjoy my role as it is varied and no two days are the same. I enjoy talking to customers and engaging with them to solve issues. Things have changed a lot in the industry, keeping up with new legislation can be difficult. Working at AFP has given me the confidence and ability to research and learn in a way that I couldn’t do when I first started. I hope to be part of this growing industry for years to come and keep on improving my knowledge.” – Ruth Hoff, Property Manager
“I have been working for AFP for 18 months now after working for numerous other managing agents, the level of professionalism is exceptionally high with customer service and client relationships a major priority. AFP standards are that of a large corporate company but with support for all staff and personal feel for our clients.” – Kate Britton, Regional Property Manager
Our first client, The Berkeley, is still with us today:
“I have nothing but praise for the excellent service provided by Alexander Faulkner Property Management Company. I have found them outstanding. Ownership statements and monies are clearly provided. Property repairs and maintenance are handled efficiently and communication is first rate. I would recommend them to anyone.”
David Warren-Holland, Chairman, The Berkeley Residents Association
