Last year (2012) because of the good advise given to me by Arran Kerkvliet, I obtained my first Student accommodation property, 'Borden Court' in Liverpool. Although I haven't met Arran in person, I have felt very confident dealing with him as an advisor. He has a very polite telephone manner, and comes across as being an honest person, he has a very descent way, when dealing with people. I am very happy with my passive investment, and wouldn't hesitate to give Arran's name to any of my friends, or members of my family. In this day and age it is good to deal with a professional, honest individual.

Pat Readshaw, Darlington Co. Durham
It was good working with you. Thank you for your patience and your support. You deserve my business. I think the project I decided to purchase is superior to other hotel room investments on the market in terms of location, class, income and for what it is (an apartment rather than a room), at least in my unprofessional view.
Mrs J Tong, Hong Kong
My comment on your service is sincere. You have been very helpful, and it makes a lot of difference to a prospective absentee landlord trying to commit on property in another country. Australian real estate agents don't work in the same way, as the idea of absentee landlords is very foreign to this culture.
Mrs Rogers, Australia
Arran has been very helpful to me with sourcing properties in any number of areas, Turkey, France, UK, Egypt etc. His company has a lot of contacts and he is able to source, what I consider to be very good opportunities in the real estate market. If you give him a brief of your requirements and long term plan he will keep an eye out and feed you the opportunities as and when they arise. He is very knowledgeable and has always given me good advice. I am sure he will do the same for you.
Consultant to the Oil and Gas Industry
I found you to be patient, well informed and always willing to look up information for me as I was new and nervous about investing due to past difficult experiences. My fears were unfounded and the investment has gone to plan so far. I would be happy to recommend investing with you.
I would like to take the opportunity to recommend One Touch Property as a property investment manager. Their consultant helped guide me to the purchase of three student properties last year. When I entered the purchasing process, I did not have a solicitor to deal with the legal aspects. The team at One Touch Property suggested the company Scott Fowler and helped put me in touch with them. They too acted most professionally and supportive throughout the purchase. I was more than satisfied with the service they provided and would happily employ them again... should the need arise. Since purchasing my properties, my portfolio manager has been in touch to check that I am satisfied and that all is still going well. In turn, I have mentioned him to friends and colleagues who have expressed an interest in buying student property as an honest and reliable partner. Both One Touch Property and Scott Fowler are an excellent blend of professional, approachable, supportive, reassuring and obliging.

I think capital appreciation will jump quite a bit in that area in next 2 years. It was a good deal that you sourced. I liked it as soon as you mentioned it. Shame we did not buy 2 or 3 at that time. But what has helped is having a great tenant with no rental voids and costs of re-advertising .
David Carr, London Investor
I contact One Touch Property after seeing an investment I was interested in. I spoke with Ray who was very friendly, knowledgeable and was happy to spend lots of time answering my numerous questions. He offered sound advice and guided me through the process of investing. At no time did I feel any pressure to invest and I’ve since recommended One Touch to friends.
Capt. Clive Phillips (Pilot)
I have been provided with some very useful options, leading to an investment with Leicester Uni. I have only dealt with One Touch recently and more than happy to continue working with One Touch in order to build up our property portfolio. I have passed on information to my company secretary and we would recommend to others.

One Touch Property Customer Service Ray and Arran were both very helpful throughout the entire process. Always gave me advice and tried to sort out any problems. They often rectified situations and did things that I am sure was more than their remit. Ray. Most of my dealings were with him. Extremely happy with all contact with Ray and what he did for me in my purchases. Most definitely recommend!
Recommend One Touch Property Investment. I just wanted to thank your company for helping me buy my airport parking space. I have never invested before so was quite nervous. One Touch Property helped me through each part of the process, and answered all my questions even though they may have been a bit basic. They explained everything fully and gave me the confidence to invest. I tell my family and friends what I have done and they are looking in to investing too, I would recommend they use One Touch. Thank you again.
"The agent is very helpful. I would recommend to my friend"
"I have no complaints with One Touch Property, they have been a reliable and honest broker for the investments I have purchased through them, I am likely to use one touch property again as I trust them, which means everything to me."
*Hi as a first time home buyer i believe i could not of been given a better service from a housing agent (onetouch propertys staff member Feroz Rana) once i made my decision really helped me throughout the process , communication And response time was perfect and great advice big thank you Feroz Rana wish you the best. *
Buying a property in a foreign country is a very daunting prospect, no matter how much prior research one does. One Touch Property changed that for us. From our initial first contact, we were well looked after and guided through the purchasing process, being given expert guidance and amazing support every step of the way. A big thank you to Arran Kerkvliet and his team, as well as to all their property partners throughout the UK for their exceedingly professional service, guidance and support. Never once did we feel pressurised or off track, and they introduced us to the perfect properties in our property search. I can only give my highest recommendation to One Touch Property and will definitely be using them again in the future. Kind regards, John French, based in Cape Town, South Africa, purchasing in the UK.

*We found One Touch Properties by following an advert for property investments on the internet. The properties we have bought through One Touch are a student studio in Liverpool and two airport parking spaces, one at Gatwick and the other in Glasgow. We have found Arran Kerkvliet’s service very good. Whenever we have had a question he has taken time to phone us whenever suitable to us, even over the weekend, and has been prepared to spend any amount of time we needed to provide us with answers. Unfortunately the Liverpool property has not lived up to our expectations in terms of returns. However, we have been very happy so far with the parking places, albeit that we only bought these within the last year. We would have no hesitation recommending Arran’s services to anyone thinking of purchasing investment property in the UK.

We have taken our cash from high risk investments in the current volatile climate and invested for a decent, safe and steady income.
I am very happy with Ben's service, even before we meet each other, Ben and his colleague has provided us adequate reply on various of our request. Thanks
I am in the process of purchasing an "off plan" en suite apartment at Phoenix Place which is the site of a student residence attached to the University of Liverpool. I have found everyone at One Touch Investment to be extremely helpful in answering the many questions which I had. As a retired person I wanted to be reassured that I was not making a serious mistake and I was put in touch with someone in a similar position to myself who had used One Touch Investment to purchase two properties. She assured me that she had been very happy with the investment properties she had purchased. As a result of that and the continuing help I received from One Touch Investment I was happy to proceed with my purchase.
*My agent Ben Thornton has been a very patient and reliable man. This was my first time investing in a property and so he was good to remind me what I should be aware of and giving advice on what my next steps should be. He would also let me know when he would be unavailable to contact and would always answer every question I had. *
I am truly impressed with the professionalism shown by Stuart Cowie on purchase of our first investment in hotel room. Stuart explained in detail about the process and arranged a site visit to the actual hotel so we could inspect the proposed development. This gave us assurance and we were happy to progress. Many thanks for your help.
Generally good information and suggestions with excellent backup and prompt response to queries
For any investment, one needs to feel confident that the service lives up to the hype. I am so far delighted with the service and continual updates that One Touch Investments provide. Stuart at One Touch has given me a tailored service that suits my budget and my investment aspirations. I look forwards eagerly to the building being completed.
We always got very quick and comprehensive response to our questions from One Touch and help and support when we needed it. Arran always made us feel like a valued client and treated us accordingly.
Excellent service from Stuart Cowie, everything completed efficient, stress free
*Although one of my investment properties turned out to be very difficult, Arran has worked very hard indeed to help me. He has provided support and advice the whole way. *
*I was initially concerned that a property agent would only be interested in getting the big decision to purchase and would then be less attentive to any ongoing issues. I have now made two purchases through One Touch Properties and I am very pleased that they have not only they given assistance and support throughout the process but have provided excellent feedback on the developements as they progressed. Many thanks to Arran Kerkvliet and Stuart Cowie, keep up the good work. Best regards Richard Whitmore-Jones *
I am writing from Hong Kong and I found One Touch property by chance, while surfing for real estate agents in the UK, on the net. I finally bought an apartment in Manchester city centre. I am very grateful to One Touch Property and specifically to Benjamin who guided me through all aspects of the search and transaction. His immense experience and reflection helped me to take my time thinking and making up my decision. This was helpful in order to feel confident and assured with myself while making such an important move in life. Thank you again Benjamin Jack Puli
I had a very good experience with One Touch. Stuart the agent was very helpful and courteous and answered all my queries. he also arranged a site visit and gave very honest and good advise. I would happily use them again.
I have found One Touch Property to be very helpful and informative with the properties they are involved with, easy to contact and always quick to respond. Thumbs up.
I live in south Africa and was looking for a foreign currency hedge due to a turbulent last few years. I found One Touch Property during one of my searches for a suitable investment. I eventually bought a care home investment which attracts no duty and I'm very happy with the purchasing experience. I met Ben Thornton of One Touch in Umhlanga before making my decision and was happy with his character and professionalism. The process was smooth and One Touch and their partners assisted all the way. In the absence of a UK pension this investment made sense.
As a South African I was looking to diversify offshore investments. A family member bought a unit in Sir Thomas in Liverpool and I decided to do likewise. I found Ben Thornton of One Touch Property to be highly organized, efficient, professional and very patient in answering all my questions and concerns. I can highly recommend him. Jenny Longworth.
Good communication. Knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.
Good personal with buyers by officials of one touch.The readiness to dialogue and assist is worthy of commendation by one touch.My encounter with Mr Alex lays credence to this.
After reaching your web site, I contacted Mr. Benjamin Thornton (Investment Consultant) at One Touch Property sometime in August 2017, and once I told him what I was interested in he took me through the options (explaining what was available and how to proceed). He responded promptly to every mail and returned phone calls timely. I have completed my purchase and all through the process and beyond Benjamin remained professional and very helpful.
The consultant Stuart is professional, quick responses for all the questions but unlike other consultants I have been dealt with, he never pressurise me to enter into any investments before i feel ready
One Touch Property really excelled in their advice and commitment in helping me make my first international Care Home property investment purchase. Stuart Cowie was always willing to answer all of my questions and even though there was a time difference between our countries, he always made the effort to call me at my convenience.I was advised to utilise the services of Jonathan Sara who facilitated the purchase/lease agreements and here too the service was excellent. This was also on the advice of Stuart. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in dealing with Stuart & One Touch Property for my next investment.
I’m a private investor and was looking for a secured investment. I came across One Touch on a general online search. I found some Care Home investments which looked appealing to me because of the guaranteed return and the secure nature of the investment. One Touch, Alex, have been more than helpful and willing to answer any questions I had in a timely and accurate manner. Thanks One Touch
I had found the One Touch Property website through Google several months ago and have been occasionally checking the offers. I recently purchased a care home investment room near Nottingham, through Alex Kennedy of One Touch Property. The conditions of purchase seem fair and communication with them and their lawyers has been swift and efficient. The monthly income stream is to commence soon and I look forward to a hands-off investment. Thanks to the One Touch Property team.
We were delighted to read ongoing reviews about the excellent service One Touch investment offered. Based on this we decided to purchase some investment properties in the care home sector through One Touch. The service and process were seamless and we always got a quick response on all our dealings and a thorough explanation where we needed it. The supply of income from our properties has proved to be an excellent return on investment.
"I had a fantastic experience purchasing my 1st student property. I worked with Ben who made my experience seamless and easy to understand. I'm already looking at my second project and it will only be with one company- Onetouch"
"Thanks to One Touch we now have a property generating just under 8% (net before income tax) per annum and that is with all management handled. Our intention is that this will provide part of our income when we retire, and we do not have to live anywhere near it as it is completely hands-off. After this success we looked at a second project, but pulled out due to financial issues. When I asked Ben how that project had gone, he said not enough units had been sold, so the project was cancelled and all monies 100% returned. This increased my confidence that any future windfall would be well invested via a One Touch endorsed project."
ONE TOUCH PROPERTY ARE REAL PROFISONALS I GOT GOOD CARE FROM STUART AND I WILL DO BUSINESS WITH THEM AGINE ZOHAR SANDLER
The process with the Bristol Properties had challenges and we did not go ahead. Stuart assisted in finding another solution
"My wife and I used One Touch Investments to create retirement income and their agent Stuart Cowie looked after us throughout. We never felt pressured and were afforded all the info and time we needed. We achieved our goal and more with Stuart’s help and can’ thank him enough. We would definitely recommend this company."
I am in the process of purchasing a student apartment at 47 Leicester. I have received excellent service from One Touch Property, particularly Stuart Cowie who has responded quickly to any queries I have had and was very helpful in the early negotiations.
As a civil worker, I’ve been searching for some time now for a hands of investment that suited my servings. I approached different investment opportunities but found them unsuitable. However as soon I approached One Touch property(saw an advert on line and email sent to me), I emailed to make inquiries and immediately got a reply with a telephone call to speak to an agent. Mr Stuart very helpful in answering all my questions and worked very closely to help me purchase the hotel room. I experienced great efficiency and case management from start to completion of purchasing the property. Since then I recently received my first quarter of income with delight and look forward for other future deposits for supporting family and for my many plans for the income. One Touch Property is great those looking for a hands off investment. Clementina Wasike
I am someone who likes to travel at least once a year, but living in South Africa with a weaker Rand made travel an expensive business. A while back I decided that I would like to take my lifetime savings and invest in a property that would help me earn pounds! One Touch has helped me achieve that goal and I was able to find the best possible investment with great returns! I am able now to save those pounds toward world wide travel, family holidays. THANKYOU to One Touch for making the whole process easy!
Invested in a care home with Carlauren group. Nathan at One Touch helped me to find a unit at late notice. He was helpful and supportive through the whole process and he made the process simple. So far I have received all my due monthly payments on time.
"Nathan is always very efficient and has been very helpful all the way through the process of my property purchase. The whole process went very smoothly and I have recommended One Touch to others"
My wife and I were initially looking to invest in student accommodation in our local area however we were too late as all units were sold so we left our details using the online form with One Touch Property just as a general inquiry about property investments. I was contacted by Ben by phone who sent details about a retirement property in Torquay and we decided to purchase a unit. We completed in May and have received monthly rent since then. We like the completely hands off investment option as everything is taken care of and we have a buy-back guarantee should we decide to sell. We were happy with our 1st investment so we decided to buy another unit in a retirement property in Barmouth and completed in October, again we have been receiving monthly rental since then. I can recommend using One Touch Property Investment and I found Ben to be professional and helpful with our questions as being first time investors we were initially apprehensive, he provided all documentation and put us in touch with a solicitor and Ben helped us through all steps in the buying process and was always prompt replying to emails and phone calls.
"We are South Africans who are semi-retired in the UK and heard of One Touch through Business Live (Alec Hogg). We have found that as time has gone on we needed more income in ££ and have used some of our capital to buy two apartments in Sheffield. We have only just completed the purchase and have yet to earn any income. Through One Touch we are exposed to properties in various locations - both those just completed (as ours are) or those still to be built. One Touch helped us to find what we wanted and have guided us through the steps which were all new to us. They were the perfect agency for us and quick to respond to any communication."
Very efficient service and smooth and fast purchase process. Very good
"I would like to thank One Touch Investment, and in particular Nathan King for helping me find a suitable property for investment. He was professional, never pushy, and patient. I was on the fence - not very certain if I wanted to invest. He answered scores of questions I posed, found properties suitable for my risk profile. He kept me engaged and I always felt he had my interest at heart. After many months of discussion I did invest and am pleased at the returns. The return is helping me add to my old-age booty, I also would put in a good word for Nathan's support after I had invested. There was an admin delay (my bank details were incomplete) in the payment of the 1st installment. Nathan went above and beyond his call of duty to reach out to the property developer, investigate the cause of the delay and helped me resolve it."
My name's Tauseef as I was looking to invest some money in either care home units or student accomadation. I spoke to Thomas who communicated very well and explained what would be best for me answered all the questions as it matched my needs i was very happy to go ahead with. It has helped me financially and in future I would definitely go back to one touch property and expand my portfolio. After the process was smooth no hassle and right now I'm looking forward to earn some returns thanks to Thomas ousby and also one touch property.
