Testimonials - RICS APC Senior Professional
Land Director at McDermott Developments Ltd
Thanks once again, Rachel, Paul & Jen and best of luck to all future candidates...you're in good hands !!
I was made aware a couple of years ago of the SPA route to MRICS from a business associate of mine and having enrolled, I "met the wall" and unsure of what the Assessment entailed.
Thankfully, at the back end of 2021, Property Elite were recommended to me, I made the initial approach to Rachel and the rest is history as they say!
The structured learning and for me in particular, the fantastic mentoring received from Rachel & Paul and the advice from Jen (and the podcasts) is priceless.
I do miss my mentoring sessions, which became a dependable part of my life for 6 months and I firmly believe I have come out a much better person for it.

Best of the best and worth every single penny!
I am so grateful to everyone at Property Elite who helped me achieve MRICS via the Senior Professional route, on the residential pathway, at the first time of asking! Property Elite have amazing strength in depth and my journey put me in touch with a broad range of expert Surveyors, but in particular, I received absolute masterclass mentoring from Paul Matton MRICS who was simply incredible.

Huge thank you to everyone who supported me - couldn't have done it without you.
I used Property Elite to assist me with progression from AssocRICS to MRICS and was advised to submit using the Senior Professional Route. The support was invaluable from beginning to end, and means that I am now a chartered surveyor!

Thanks Property Elite!
It's been an interesting and worthy journey I had with Property Elite team starting from the induction and all the way to the final session before the assessment date. The type of materialised support offered by the team is really worthy, and it so rare to find such support around the clock.

Thanks to the team at Property Elite.
I felt well prepared for my Senior Professional APC assessment. From initial advice on pathways to critically assessing my submission and mock interviews I found their feedback invaluable.

Thank you so much for your support!
I would highly reccomend property elite for anyone looking to add an RICS accreditation. Not only have they helped me achieve my full membership status, but they also advised me on the most suitable route and pathway which saved me half the time! We have since built a great relationship and as a result they are now progressing applications with my entire team.

Director at CJ Bloor Property Consultants Ltd
I recently used Property Elite to help me with my APC. They were invaluable and I would highly recommend them to others wishing to achieve AssocRICS, MRICS or FRICS status.
Rachel was my mentor and was always on hand to answer my questions. Rachel is very professional, friendly and helpful. I also found the mock interviews to be very well organised and played an essential part in my revision. All in all an excellent experience from start to finish, and I am pleased to say that I passed my final interview first time round.
Senior Commercial Manager at London Square
Thank you Property Elite.
I would strongly recommend Property Elite for anybody looking to progress their surveying career and achieve MRICS. They really understand how to tailor your learning requirements based on your background within the profession. If you have come from a developer/main contractor background like I did. I would recommend Paul Matton as he has a brilliant way of explaining and relating the RICS to the profession in a way that is easy to understand. It has been a fantastic experience to undertake and you certainly become a better professional by doing it. I now look forward to continuing my career as a member of the RICS.
Director of Property & Development at Boylesports
I would have no hesitation in recommending Property Elite to any prospective SPA applicant.
The team at Property Elite provided an invaluable service, which ensured that I was able to produce exactly what was required at each stage of the SPA process - from a robust assessment submission, through to ensuring that I had the knowledge and confidence to be able to deliver the required standard of presentation and answer the relevant key competency questions during the final assessment interview. Their understanding of the process and the detailed knowledge of what is required, ensured that I was in a great position throughout the application process.
Director - Ian Crane Estate Agents
Thanks Property Elite
Couldn't have done it without you!
Adnan Hasan Mahmood Mohamed
Managing Director & Property Valuer at Carlton Real Estate
Thanks to the Property Elite team I was able to make this dream a reality, they helped fill all the gaps in my knowledge as well as giving me the confidence and motivation I needed from start to finish.
Achieving MRICS status has always been a professional dream of mine as I value the core factors that that the RICS has been built upon; integrity, high standards of service, professionalism and overall consumer confidence. I also admired the global acceptance.
Each and every session was tailored to my needs whilst keeping in mind my goal. My sincere thanks to my great counsellor and mentor Rachel Saint), Paul Matton, Jane Forsyth, Brian Robinson as well as Jen Lemen, I couldn’t have done it without you! I would highly recommend as their guidance and support really does make the difference.
Head of Sales at John D Wood
I am very happy with the service and support that I received.
Paul went above and beyond the call of regular duty, and I am 100% sure that without his and Rachel's help along the way, I wouldn't have known where to start, let alone pass the APC at the first time of asking! I thoroughly recommend using Property Elite, especially if you, like me, need to fit everything in around an extremely busy and demanding job and young family - I felt I had clear and achievable goals throughout my mentoring program - I am extremely grateful for the support I received!
Partner at The Workplace Company
Rachel & Jen have been incredible in helping me pass my APC.
Not only have they guided me through the process, helping prepare me and advising on my submission they also went above and beyond when obstacles presented themselves. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
Director at Cheethams Properties
Thanks very much!
Rachel, Paul, Jen and the rest of the Property Elite team made the whole experience very enjoyable and professional.
Director at Halls
Very impressed with the service provided by Property Elite.
From start to finish, I passed the APC in just under 5 months with all credit going to Rachel Saint and Paul Matton for the help and guidance which they provided (and Jen who advised the senior professional route at the outset!).
Always there to help, they were relaxed, knowledgeable and down to earth.
I would strongly recommend Property Elite to anyone who wants to become a member of the RICS.
Regional Commercial Director at NG Bailey
I am delighted that I have passed my Senior Professional Assessment first time!
I would not have been successful on this journey were it not for the mentoring and support I received from Property Elite. Their support and commitment to me during the process has been first class. Thank you guys.
Managing Partner at Daniels Estate Agents
Thank you Property Elite
I would just like to say thank you for all your help. Your initial advice about which route to follow saved me months of work and your continuing support was invaluable.
Jen and the team were very helpful in my SPA application.
I feel Jen's advice may well have have made the difference for me to pass first time.
Chartered Surveyor and Non-Executive Director
I cannot think of a single reason why one would not use Property Elite for their APC SP assessment!
I cannot speak highly enough of Jen & Rachel who via the 'Monthly Mentoring' Property Elite package got me through the CRE Senior Professional route. Their help, assistance, guidance and in particular, knowledge of the process, proved invaluable in selecting my Case Studies and focussing on suitable competencies.
The 'Mock' assessment is absolutely critical in terms of preparation for the final assessment and for any Senior Professional with our full workloads, having someone that gives you a regular 'prod' to ensure that you are putting in the required study work is frankly, priceless.
I can honestly say that it has been a privilege to have Jen & Rachel successfully guide me through this journey and I am very willing to speak directly and independently with anyone considering SPA about the benefits Property Elite provided to me. Testimonials are often peppered with reasons why one should use a particular 'Service' but I should have saved my breath and simply stated what I now know to be the case in respect of Property Elite. I cannot think of a single reason why one would not!
Director at MJD Hughes
Business & Commercial Property
Rachel and Jen at Property Elite got me through my Senior Professional Assessment.
Their knowledge of the process and ability to identify what areas I needed to work on were invaluable. In short, without them I wouldn't be a Chartered Surveyor now.
Director and Head of Global Real Estate at Delphi Technologies
I have already recommended Property Elite (the Full Monty) to friends and colleagues taking the APC.
I passed the Senior Professional Assessment (Corporate Real Estate pathway) having taken invaluable advice, coaching and help from the very knowledgeable Rachel & Jen.
As a corporate end user, I had really no clue on what I had to do, what I had to read or what questions I may be asked in the final assessment. Rachel & Jen knew exactly where to start and within a few short weeks I understood what I had to do.
The online mock is an absolutely essential part of being prepared, so by the time I was sat in front of the assessors, I felt confident and well prepared.
Director of Property Operations and Engineering at Tishman Speyer (USA)
Jen and Rachel were amazing making everything simple to understand, and providing great support and advice!
I was nervous and needed help and guidance building my submission package and structuring my case studies. Would not have been as successful with my assessment without them. Thanks a million.
Valuation Surveyor at Alexander Lawson Surveyors
Thank you...I DID IT!
Words cannot describe how thankful I am to Property Elite.
The guidance and support I received was second to none, and this spanned from the initial stages with my submission up until the mock interview.
Rachel - you have the patience of a 'Saint' and it paid off.
I would thoroughly recommend anyone taking their APC via the SPA to look no further and seek Property Elite's assistance.
Senior Surveyor at Bruton Knowles
Your help and guidance was invaluable, Thank you!
I connected with Property Elite probably later than was ideal, but the APC question pack that was prepared following a detailed review of my submission was an essential tool and well worth the investment. I doubt I would have performed so well without it.
Commercial Manager at Black & Veatch International
To all candidates.....Preparation is key, remember my favourite old saying "failure to prepare is to prepare to fail"......I did not fail because I prepared very well, and I could only do that with the first class services provided by Property Elite. Many thanks.
I followed the Senior Professional Assessment Route (SPA), Property Elite do what they say they will do and do it, thoroughly professional and extremely helpful. From inception to completion their service was impeccable, Jen responded to my initial enquiry promptly & efficiently and then Rachel Saint guided me through my case studies, followed by Paul Matton who gave me some great insights that were invaluable.
The Mock Interview was also an integral part of the process. I would also add that the Q&A pack I received from Jen was extensive and very very thorough. I would say to all APC & SPA route people....take good note of what is contained in the Q&A pack, it helped me over the line, even if it meant extensive studying and by doing so it also gave me fantastic insight into what a truly professional organisation Property Elite are, but also RICS.
Director at Poole Phillips Associates
Working with Rachel and Jen was a real pleasure.
They kept me on track through the RICS Senior Professional Assessment route and made the whole experience as smooth as possible.
The e-mock interview was particularly useful so that I was well prepared for the real thing.
MRICS and MCIOB Development Director at Artform
I would absolutely recommend Property Elite to anyone embarking on this process.
Rachel and Jen were exceptionally helpful, patient and supportive throughout. Their mentoring on all matters including my case studies, guidance on reading material and preparation for the final assessment was invaluable.
The e-mock was also a critical part of the process to ensure that I was fully prepared for my final assessment, in allowing me to practice my presentation skills and identify areas of knowledge that required further development.
