“Emma has managed our portfolio of commercial properties for several years, we have always found her to be thorough, efficient and very professional. Emma is very astute, keeps her eye on the ball, and is quick to liaise with us and tenants if things are not running as she thinks they should be.

We have attended meetings with tenants and Emma where she proves to us she knows her job and how to handle herself with confidence and assertiveness.”
Mr & Mrs Robinson


Emma has been very helpful and efficient throughout the conveyancing of my companies business premises, offering myself good professional advise enabling me to make informed decisions in a process that I knew little about.

Emma has been very proactive in liaising with all parties involved ensuring that progress has been made as quickly and efficiently as possible ,with regular reports to myself keeping me fully informed of the current situation.

Mr L Galvin


I highly recommend Michael Parkes Surveyors Ltd. Excellent customer service – efficient, quick, knowledgeable and reasonably priced.

Mrs Kamara


We have been using Michael Parkes Chartered Surveyors for our property in Laser Quay for the past 5 years, in particular the services of Emma Catterall, whose services we would recommend.

Michael Parkes has always provided us with excellent service and performance and have been punctual on their deliverables.

When we initially took on the Property, there were three vacant units and rents were circa £5-£5.50 psf. The site is currently fully let and rents have reached £7.75 psf which is a testament to Michael Parkes’ performance.

We are happy to recommend the services of Michael Parkes.

Custodian Capital Ltd July 2017


This development is approximately 8 years old and upon completion we were placed under the management of a well know Property Company. As the years have passed it has become very apparent that the service we have received totally lacked cohesion, several changes of Managers, some appalling, accounts in a mess, and the very obvious disinterest in this small private estate.

In 2016, I was asked by the owners here to engage the services of Emma Catterall, of Michael Parkes  Surveyors. What a breath of Spring!

Emma Catterall, inherited virtually no information from our previous Managers, accounting was appalling . Emma has slowly sifted through the mire and we are all so grateful that our development is now under the care of such an interested and caring person.
