"The renovation was finished to an impeccable standard..."
Couldn’t have asked for a better job – Berkeley Place really exceeded any expectations with brilliant project managing and guidance from start to finish. It was really a case of handing the keys over and coming back to a fantastic finished project. Nick, Kate & the Berkeley team were on hand to manage every aspect, even going the extra mile to help out where possible and making the process incredibly smooth. The renovation was finished to an impeccable standard, within budget and completed well on schedule. Cannot recommend enough!
"A fantastic, able team."
Nick has been brilliant.
Everything is thought through carefully and he really does know his stuff. He knows what we want and how to deliver it. He listens and he delivers. He has an outstanding team of professionals who treat you with courtesy and respect. A fantastic, able team.
Mr B Tooker, Allied Irish Bank
"The high profile Grade 2 listed property..."
We supported Nick and his co-investors with a strategic and challenging off market transaction. The high profile Grade 2 listed property which comprised over 10,000 sq ft of commercial space, together with scope for further development represented an attractive opportunity for the customer. Whilst the property was in unloved condition, the building was efficiently reorganised and renovated to deliver a sizeable rent uplift via a new tenant and lease arrangement. Latterly the sale of the property provided further investor returns.
"In retrospect it was one of the best decisions..."
We hired Berkeley Place to help us convert two flats in an Edwardian property back into a single dwelling. In retrospect it was one of the best decisions we could have made in the whole process. Nick and his team helped us source the various contractors to gut the house, renovate and restore it back up to the beautiful home it is today. Everyone we worked with was brilliant and worked to an extremely high standard. Berkeley Place managed not only the finances but also the inevitable issues which arose which kept some of the stress levels down. There is no way we would have been able to complete this project in such a short period of time, had we managed this project ourselves. As well as being highly professional and knowledgeable, Nick and his team were also very pleasant to work with and I would happily recommend them or indeed employ them again.
"The quality of the work has been faultless..."
Berkeley Place have been contracted for various requests at a number of our properties, ranging from major refurbishments to kitchen and bathroom installations and decorative works. The quality of the work has been faultless – Nick and his team were always willing to go the extra mile and provided excellent communication throughout the process of each project. We will certainly be using them again and would not hesitate to recommend Berkeley Place.

"I would have no hesitation in recommending them..."
Berkeley Place delivered our year-long house renovation project, while we lived in the property. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any large renovation projects where you need all the strands pulling together to be delivered as a whole. Nick brought together the right people at the right time and monitored all the financials, dealing with any pricing pushbacks that were necessary. He managed issues arising and negotiated practical solutions, keeping the emotions of the project on an even keel and therefore absorbing those stresses and strains of living through a renovation.

"In one word Nick and his team at Berkeley Place, delivered"
Living overseas and having bought a rather run down but a gem of a Georgian Grade 2 listed townhouse, absolute trust and faith in our project manager for the complete renovation that our house needed. In one word Nick and his team at Berkeley Place, “ delivered”.
The whole house, all 5 stories were gutted , front and back gardens redesigned and planners dealt with, all within the confines of very awkward access. The opportunity for conflict with our new neighbours was obvious, but Nick and his various contractors worked with the deftness that would have made a professional PR company proud. At the end of what was a year long project , our next door neighbour told me he missed our contractors, which has to be a first !
The quality of the workmanship, the willingness to go the extra mile, and the professionalism of the financial management of what was a complex project, would all lead me to recommend Nick and his team to anyone with a similar renovation in mind.
"It was great luck on my part finding Nick..."
After only a couple of meetings, I left him the keys of the house. A large old houses with extensive redecorating, so there were snags, and decisions to be taken to keep costs in check. Nick and his team were very efficient, pleasant to work with and always ready with good sensible advice.
The house has been transformed, and I am about to give Nick my house keys again for a second round…

"Professionalism and quality workmanship"
Professionalism and quality workmanship
I am happy to recommend Nick and Berkeley Place, they were contracted to carry out decorative work at my offices and have refurbished other Savills offices on my recommendation and as a direct result of their professionalism and quality workmanship. On a personal level, I have employed them at my own home and found the contractors punctual, trust worthy and considerate. I would therefore have no hesitation in endorsing the company in the future.
"I would have no hesitation to recommend the service."
We used Berkeley Place for a substantial project on a grade 2 Georgian country house including extensive refurbishment, decoration, reconditioning 300 year old windows etc.
NIck, Alex and the team were always quick to respond and happy to do the extra stuff that keeps the stress to a minimum! I would have no hesitation to recommend the service. We have infact gone on to do another two projects with Nick already.
