Collectively they employ thousands of people with the large majority opting to reside in or around the city.

Beresfords impressed from the start with professionalism and competitive fees. Attracted by long-standing reputation and business coverage, I wasn't disappointed. I'd thoroughly recommend.

I'm a landlord and Beresfords provide an excellent service. They source good quality tenants, are very customer focused and quickly resolve any issues. I have been a client for three years and would definitely recommend them to others.
