What our clients say
The Team at Gateway Properties were not only everything you would expect from a professional estate agents, they also gave us the confidence to take the plunge with foreign property purchase (Budapest). They freely gave us their time, precisely followed our property requirements, were very patient with our decision making process and diligently helped us all the way through to the day of completion and beyond. They filled in any knowledge gaps no matter how big and answered all our concerns throughout. Particular thanks go to Ken White, who managed to make what could have been a stressful and anxious process feel like a holiday and who made buying a property abroad an absolute pleasure. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

"As a woman traveling alone to Buadapest I was very happy to find Gateway Properties. After one simple phone call before I traveled I was sent an excellent selection of properties which matched my criteria exactly. They were extremely professional and looked after me during my visit even recommending a very nice hotel for me. After viewing and finding my ideal property they helped me secure the purchase quickly and painlessly."

I would like to let you know how easy it has been for me to buy an apartment in Budapest with Gateway Properties.
Buying property overseas is always a nerve wracking process, but all the staff at Gateway made things run so smoothly - especially as I arrived in Budapest on my own with a small child, and somewhat apprehensive as to the buying process.
The owners are so friendly and put you at ease, and all the staff in the Gateway office could not do enough for us. Particularly their Property Manager Erzsebet Joo who is still supporting me today with help in getting a tenant and furnishing the property etc. This was a challenge for me, trying to get the flat let from London and this was all sorted out for me by Erzsebet ,and for that I thank her.
I would not hesitate in recommending Gateway Properties as they are an honest, professional, and experienced company to do business with.
Kate Garnett - London,England.
"In my experience, buying a property in the UK can cause apprehension and stress. When you're buying somewhere in a foreign country for the first time, it stands to reason that you may also experience similar concerns. However it's only having bought a place through Gateway Properties, and with the benefit of hindsight, that I realised these concerns were clearly misplaced.
From the initial viewings to property selection, obtaining the mortgage to opening bank accounts, visiting the registrar to dealing with our lawyer, we were gently guided through each phase. And whilst all alien at the time, each stage now seems comparatively straight forward and in my opinion favourable to the British system.
I have no delay in recommending Gateway for their professionalism and moreover the personal service provided by Richard, Eszter and Erzsébet throughout. They're a good team and I genuinely felt they also had my interests at heart. Thank-you again."
Steve - Bristol, England.
I visited Budapest on the 17th April 2006 for 3 days with a view to purchasing an apartment. It was my first foreign purchase and my first visit to Budapest and so presented me with a daunting task.
I left Budapest having chosen and signed the agreement on a lovely one bed apartment. The staff at Gateway were excellent. They organised and accompanied me on viewings of a good range of apartments, organised the accompanied me on my meeting with the lawyer and the seller and even helped me to open a bank account. Their staff are efficient and friendly and have great local knowledge. The help didn't stop there and on subsequent visits they organised the apartment insurance, transferred utility agreements and recommended a letting agency. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gateway properties to manage your property purchase in Budapest.

We would just like to say a huge thanks to Gateway Properties, and especially Erzsebet for all the help we've had buying our flat in Budapest.
From the moment we arrived at the office, we have enjoyed the relaxed but professional way proceedings have been handled. We always felt welcome, and were very pleased with how quickly and efficiently the purchase proceeded.
A special thanks goes to Erszebet for her continued and significant support in helping us sort out utilities, bank accounts, and all manner of other extras, when we were unable to get to Hungary.
The flat is great, and we look forward to enjoying it over the coming years.
Thanks again to all, we look forward to seeing you on safari one day.
