Testimonials - RICS APC
Facilities Engineer at National Data Management Authority National (Guyana)
Based on my experience I highly recommend them to anyone pursuing Chartered Membership with the RICS.
I contacted Property Elite based on the recommendation from a classmate of the Master of Laws Programme.
As an APC candidate, I was concerned about how prepared I was for my assessment Interview. Property Elite offered advice on the best way forward and how their services could assist me.
After engaging them, by utilising their Mock Interview and APC Question Pack service I was able to adequately prepare for my final assessment interview and subsequently got the good news that I passed.
The service offered to me was everything that was promised and more.

I cannot recommend the services of Property Elite enough.

I highly recommend this service to anyone undertaking the final assessment!

A massive thanks to Jen and the Property Elite team for helping me become a Chartered Surveyor!!

Chartered Surveyor at Hansteen
A very useful range of services for anyone who requires APC support.
Concise, efficient and to the point. I particularly found the e-mock assessment useful as it provided a realistic insight into what to expect on the day whilst giving an opportunity to ask questions and clarify any queries afterwards.
Rural Surveyor and APC Supervisor at National Trust
As an APC supervisor. I have found the quizzes, which cover numerous competencies, to be an excellent resource to use in my regular sessions with my APC candidate.
I have found the use of multiple choice questions, whilst a brilliant test of knowledge, an extremely useful and effective discussion tool around the competency when gaps in the candidates wider knowledge appear.

Brilliant service all round!
After a previous referral, I asked Property Elite for guidance so that I was better prepared for my next interview. I initially spoke with Jen about the services they could provide and subsequently booked a review of my documents, the question pack and two mock interviews.
I found the feedback from Jen and Abigail on my submission documents invaluable. They helped to tailor my summary of experience to ensure I really focused on the key criteria.
After my mock interviews, Ashley and David were able to provide great first hand advice on what to expect on the day and where I could improve my presentation.

Can't recommend enough, thanks Property Elite!
Jen and the team were fantastic from start to finish.
Having been referred and working within in a small team I found the external help and support vital to getting through the very challenging process.
Jen has a superb eye for detail and I found a second opinion on my documents a real help especially to eliminate minor errors.
Chartered Surveyor at Chandler Garvey
Customer service was brilliant.
I emailed Jen to enquire about the services that Property Elite offered and within a short space of time had a mock interview booked.
The feedback I received from Jen & Rachel after my mock exam was fantastic and really helped me focus on certain areas prior to the real thing.
Chartered Surveyor at CuthbertWhite (Scotland)
Delighted to have passed the APC recently!
This was my second time sitting and this time round I wanted to be fully prepared for the different questions I could be asked on my submission.
I heard about Property Elite from a friend and bought the tailored question pack. I found this incredibly useful as it outlines the different questioning levels and is mostly based on the submission.
It was very useful to give to people for Q and A sessions too.
Professional Assessment Manager RICS Sub-Saharan Africa
Denis' RICS assessment panel for preliminary review said it was an absolute pleasure to review his submission!
The assessor who reviewed Denis’s submission for his pre-assessment review has asked me to pass on his compliments for the great advice and guidance you gave Denis.
The panel has asked me to pass on their congratulations to you for your role as Denis' counsellor as they were very impressed with how well Denis was prepared for his interview.

Excellent service and it really made all the difference!

Jen was patient, knowledgeable and very responsive and the mock interview, quizzes and question packs all helped to ensure I was thoroughly prepared.
I highly recommend Property Elite - money very well spent as I know I would not now be a qualified Chartered Surveyor without them!

Property Elite’s full Health & Safety and Ethics revision quizzes contained tough but good questions!
Joint Head of Property at Panther Securities
First class service - I couldn’t have done it without you!
I first spoke with Jen at Property Elite when embarking on the APC process after years of being overwhelmed by the process. Jen quickly set me at ease and explained the process clearly and set to work helping me to complete my submission.
Without the advice and support, the task seemed far too daunting. I have now PASSED my APC at the first attempt and owe a lot of this to the team at Property Elite!
Estates Manager at DAT Group
Friendly people and a great service all round. Thanks all!
Property Elite provided invaluable support for me throughout the APC process and ensure I passed my assessment on the first attempt.
Chartered Surveyor & Registered Valuer at Sibley Pares Chartered Surveyors
From start to finish Jen has been absolutely fantastic!
I would highly recommend the question pack which helped focus my revision and provided clear questions based on my submission which helped me pass first time.
However, the key part for me is that Jen genuinely cares about your progress and not only helped me on the academic side of things, but she was more than happy to talk to me to ease my nerves in the period where I was waiting for my final results.
I cannot thank Jen and the team enough and I will be making sure I recommend Property Elite to all other APC candidates I speak to.
Chartered Surveyor (Project Management)
Full Monty = money well spent!
No question or query was too much trouble for Jen & the team to respond to. The fast, concise responses guided my submission, explained the gaps assessors would want answers to in the presentation which in turn steered the follow-up panel questions and set the tone for a successful interview.
Chartered Building Surveyor
Good value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
Thanks to Property Elite, I took advantage of a submission review, question pack and a Q&A session with a Building Surveying pathway assessor. I received the review and question pack within 4 days.
The advice on what to improve was invaluable and the questions were tailored to my submission. I had a Q&A a few days before my interview.
This helped settle my nerves and gave me confidence that I would pass.
Surveyor at Knight Frank Middle East
The revision quizzes help to get your brain thinking!

Passed my assessment first time and became a Chartered Surveyor. The level of support and attentiveness by Property Elite was exceptional.
It was less than two years ago when I started my training and mentoring sessions with Property Elite and during this journey, I had the pleasure of working closely with a team of world class professionals who all did a tremendous job going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that not only I will pass the APC assessment, but also I am fully trained at the highest standard expected from a Chartered Surveyor.

Highly recommend speaking to Jen and the team.

The question pack was extremely detailed and provided me with a good foundation for revision. I felt fully prepared for the final interview following mocks with Property Elite assessors, the feedback reports and tips were invaluable. The quizzes, podcasts and other resources on the website were also really helpful.
Chartered Planning and Development Surveyor at Batcheller Monkhouse
Highly recommended - without hesitation!
Jen and the team at Property Elite were fantastic in supporting me during the final stages of my APC.
I'd highly recommend the revision question pack which proved to be a brilliant framework for my revision.
Chartered Surveyor at Wilks Head & Eve LLP
The APC process is all about showing that you’re professionally competent, Property Elite helped me achieve that.
The mocks I undertook with Property Elite were essential to me passing the assessment. The mocks were very much like the real thing but with the benefit of feedback afterwards and being able to discuss competencies and style of answering questions which was very helpful.
’d also like to note that if you are a graduate in a position where you aren’t on a graduate scheme or surrounded by colleagues who are up to date with the submission process through to assessment then Property Elite is worth getting in touch with.
Jen and her team were helpful with all my questions whether technical or about my submission or assessment.
Quantity Surveyor at United Living Group
Property Elite were very responsive and quick to reply to me even when I was very close to my final assessment date, I appreciated their help!
Chartered Building Surveyor and Managing Director at The Marshall Group
I approached Jen once I had submitted for final assessment as I was struggling to find direction for my preparation for the final interview.

It did not leave my side during the final weeks before Interview and definitely helped me to pass first time!
Chartered Surveyor at Birmingham Property Services
The extra advice and revision tests provided by Property Elite were really helpful, so thank you again for your support.

I highly recommend Property Elite's service - I couldn’t have done it without them!
I am truly grateful to Property Elite for the invaluable support provided through the APC process.
Associate at Holt Commercial Limited
I can definitely recommend Property Elite for anyone enrolling on the APC and only wish I had found the service sooner.
Whilst working towards my APC I was at a small firm in Leeds and required some additional guidance as it wasn’t available in house.
Property Elite provided this and through a service that was flexible and specific to my needs. I felt I got exactly what I needed.
Jen was incredibly knowledgeable about the process as a whole and what was needed from my submission. The turnaround time on getting documents reviewed or questions answered was extremely impressive and all for a price that represented great value.
The APC revision quizzes were very comprehensive too. They raised issues/questions I hadn’t necessary considered - they force you to think.
Chartered Surveyor at ETP Property Consultants
I can't thank them enough.
I found the APC process and final assessment an incredibly daunting experience. Working for a smaller firm meant I didn't have some of the resources which my peers had. Property Elite's blog and quizzes really helped fill in any gaps in my knowledge.
Both Jen and Rachel were approachable and understanding and have provided invaluable support when completing my case study and preparing for my final interview.
The quick response to queries, as well as the blog, are so helpful especially in an already stressful situation. Access to Property Elite through the website, email and Facebook is so easy to use.
Partner at Maggs and Allen
I cannot recommend Property Elite enough!
Their comprehensive website was invaluable; from their regular blogs providing essential updates, to the various APC revision quizzes.
I opted for a mock APC final assessment with Jen. I received detailed feedback immediately after which helped me understand areas where improvement was needed and I was directed to where further information could be found.
Without Jen’s support I fear my APC outcome could have been quite different. I will continue to browse your blogs now I am chartered.
Rural Chartered Surveyor at Elgars
I cannot recommend Property Elite highly enough!
The mock interviews, question packs and submission review were extremely helpful. I was able to get a much better understanding of what was required in the interview, and just how broad my knowledge had to be.
Jen and the others were extremely helpful throughout the process, and I cannot recommend Property Elite highly enough, particularly for candidates in small companies, or for those who are entering through the professional experience route.
Property & Asset Surveyor at Burhill Group
I cannot recommend their services more highly, and recommend them to all APC candidates!
Jen and Rachel were an invaluable asset to guiding me to becoming a Chartered Member and preparing me for my submission and assessment.
Director at SWP Asset Management Ltd
I cannot thank Property Elite enough for their assistance through my APC.
Working landlord side I was not surrounded by surveyors to offer assistance through my APC. Property Elite understood the difficulties faced by not being part of a Firm and created a personal service which ensured I was guided through the process, focusing on areas where exposure was more limited.
As the date drew closer and the panic levels rose, Property Elite answered every call, email and query.
Confidence was a key concern for my interview and Property Elite ensured I had exposure to over 6 interviewers to build my confidence. I am pleased to say I passed first time and I believe without their assistance this would not have been possible.
Head of Property and Facilities Management at Savills
I completed the APC whilst living abroad with limited resources and it was really useful to have access to Property Elite for e-mock interviews and tests.
I booked two mock interviews online prior to sitting the APC and I am sure that they were largely responsible for me passing first time! Many thanks!
Surveyor at Goodsir Commercial Limited
I contacted Property Elite about two weeks before my APC interview. Jen provided friendly, attentive advice which really helped me through the process.
My style of revision is quite solitary so it was great to have some interaction and Jen and Rachel were flexible and able to provide me mock interviews at very short notice. The mocks really helped and provided a true insight into the final assessment, giving me the opportunity to work on my weak points but most importantly it gave me a new way of thinking so that I could feel comfortable with almost any question (even the ones I didn’t necessarily know the fine print on!).
Senior Quantity Surveyor at Walker Sime
I could not recommend highly enough Property Elite's services.
Jen's help was invaluable by providing fantastic and informative resources in a timely manner and answering any pressing queries. I also found Revision Quizzes and Newsletter a great way of building knowledge.
Chartered Surveyor at Sussex Community
NHS Foundation Trust
I couldn’t have done this without Property Elite. Thank you so much.
I cannot recommend Property Elite highly enough. I had struggled getting the support for my APC due to a lack of resource within the work place, and had convinced myself I would never get through the process.
I typed ‘APC help’ into google one evening and Property Elite popped up. I never looked back!
I had a 15-minute free consultation with Rachel, and I immediately knew these were the people for me – so professional, but also so personable.
I had 1:1 mentoring with Rachel for around 6-months in total, which took me through the submission review, question pack, revision sessions and mock-interview.
Rachel believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself, and because of her, and her never failing support, the whole process went like clockwork.
Chartered Surveyor at Mason Partners LLP
I found the question pack invaluable in the weeks leading up to my APC!
I would highly recommend this and the Property Elite blogs and podcasts to anybody sitting their APC.
Client-side Chartered Surveyor at Blue Chip Company
I had the full submission review, question pack and mock package and it was so help in preparing me for my APC.
Property Elite were super quick and efficient and constantly answered my questions! Jen’s help in me forming a strong submission definitely played a huge part in setting me up for a good interview. Thank you.
Senior Project Manager at Mace
I have already recommended Property Elite to others and would recommend to anyone considering the service.
The Property Elite team provided me with invaluable feedback on my submission. I made the decision to have my submission reviewed quite late and Jen and the team worked really quick turning comments around over the weekend to ensure I met the RICS submission deadline. The comments provided were of high quality, specific to my submission and provided me with clear feedback on how to improve my submission.
Chartered Surveyor at Hammond Chartered Surveyors
I have no hesitation in recommending Property Elite to any APC candidate, whether they're looking for general advice and guidance or wish to take up the fantastic array of services they have to offer.
I first came across Property Elite during a RICS Matrics event 'all about the APC', I was very impressed with the content delivered and Jen's knowledge and expertise. I subsequently enquired about the other services they provided and purchased 'Offer 1 - Ace Your Assessment' choosing submission review and E-mock interview. I found the submission review invaluable, it offered very comprehensive feedback delivered within a prompt timescale, particularly important when you’re working to a deadline. I believe the E-mock interview is essential for any candidate who have not undertaken a mock. The E-mock followed the format of a final assessment interview, giving you the experience and structure of the assessment and the type of questions, you would be expected to answer. It genuinely helps to settle the nerves and prepares you for the real thing. I ended up taking two E-mocks before my final assessment, the experience certainly served me well, when I undertook my final assessment interview. In addition to these services I purchased the APC Question Pack that offered a multitude of tailored questions to your case study, competencies and CPD, a fantastic revision aid. I also found the Online APC Revision Quiz Package a useful tool to test yourself and gauge which areas you should focus your revision.
I would like to thank Jen and her team at Property Elite for delivering an impeccable service that went above and beyond my expectations, and clearly demonstrated their genuine passion to help candidates through their APC.
Associate Surveyor at National Residential Firm
I have recently passed my APC Preliminary Review submission with excellent feedback from RICS.
I would not have been able to pass first time without help from Property Elite. They are very knowledgeable, encouraging and professional. Jen was the best mentor anyone could ever have during their APC process. I would highly recommend Property Elite to anyone working towards their APC.
Strategic and Commercial Asset Manager at Luton Borough Council
I highly recommend Property Elite!
Practical, easy to follow advice that really helped me prepare and pass.
Chartered Building Surveyor at Vickery Holman
I highly recommend it!
I bought the APC question pack just after submitting APC submission.
While I initially thought it was expensive, it has turned out to be the most valuable tool for my APC revision.
The pack highlighted significant knowledge gaps of which I was unaware.
Using the questions (at all levels) to direct my research and revision, I was able to produce a comprehensive set of background and submission-specific knowledge that held me in good stead through the interview and will continue to do so for my future career.
This is an excellent investment for any APC candidate, though you still need to put in the hours to get the most from it.
Land Manager at Berkeley St Edward
I highly recommend their service to candidates looking to take their APC in the future.
Property Elite are a fantastic service, that's provides candidates with direct and challenging APC experience which is absolutely invaluable preparation for the real thing.

Senior Surveyor at Knight Frank
I made contact with Property Elite to ensure my final submission could give me a strong platform going into the Final Interview.
Property Elite provided me with extensive guidance and advice at very short notice. The feedback helped me improve my submission and highlighted areas of possible questioning during the interview. I would strongly recommend the services of Property Elite, especially to those at companies with minimal formal training and guidance.
Estates Manager at Boots
I passed my APC first time, and would definitely recommend the quizzes to future candidates!
I purchased some of Jen’s quizzes to use a couple of days before my APC; to offer some variety to my revision, and check that there weren’t any gaps in my knowledge. After purchasing, I received a response with the links to my quizzes extremely quickly. I found the content topical and relevant, and they definitely freshened my revision and helped me keep focused.

Design and Project Manager at Acorn Property Group
I purchased the Full Monty pack and found it very good value!
I got very detailed and thorough feedback on my submission, which was invaluable.
The question pack was a great framework for the final few months of study, and especially to cover general knowledge for the mandatory compentencies, and the full gamut of ethics topics.
The mock interview experience was invaluable prior to the final assessment, which I'd recommend to anyone completing their APC.
Overall, a really comprehensive review which was a a great help in completing my APC.
Regeneration Officer at Peabody
I purchased the Full Monty pack and would highly recommend the team at Property Elite to anyone sitting their APC!
It was incredibly useful to have an assessor review my submission and provide detailed comments on my case study and summary of experience.
Having a question pack specific to my submission gave me an understanding of the questions the assessors are likely to ask and became my go to for revision.
The mock interview helped to familiarise with the format of the final interview and understand which areas I needed to focus on in the last few weeks.
The teams all round advice and guidance was invaluable and prepared me for the final assessment in the best possible way.
Senior Surveyor at JLL
I purchased the question pack (which became my bible in the final stages of revision) and I was so impressed at what I received.
Property Elite had clearly gone through my submission in great detail and identified the key areas of questioning as well as anything linked to current hot topics. It was so helpful to have someone completely new to my submission looking at it as the assessors would.
I also purchased the expansion packs to the quizzes - these were so helpful in testing my knowledge, identifying areas I needed to brush up on and helping measure my progress. In the last few days before my assessment it was reassuring to go through some of the quizzes as a last minute recap!
The blog was also a huge help, providing really helpful summaries / breakdowns of numerous topics, and I continue to keep up to date with new posts.
Jen was so helpful and supportive from start to finish and turned everything around super quick and was happy to answer any queries I had, no matter how trivial, or provide clarity on aspects I wasn’t clear on. She clearly invests a great deal of time and care in what she does - I would absolutely recommend getting in touch as early in the process as possible!
Residential Surveyor at Principles Surveyors
I really couldn't recommend them enough!

The service from Property Elite was always quick and friendly.
Surveyor, Rent Reviews at PHP PLC
I really recommend this service to anyone sitting their APC.
I purchased the APC question pack which was very pivotal in my revision. The level 2 & 3 questions were tailored and allowed me to really reflect on my case study and summary of experience submissions. The service was fast, the pack was prepared in 1 day after payment. The question pack also helped me to get tailored questioning from non property family members and friends who can't actually understand my submission. Simulating interview conditions and allowing me to work on my confidence in answering questions.
Valuation Surveyor at Leicester City Council
I recommend Property Elite’s services to APC candidates preparing for the final assessment.
