“New to the world of HMO investment, I could not have asked for a better team to help me navigate through sourcing, purchasing, refurbishment, renovations and letting. The trio partnership of Accumul8, Renov8 and Loc8me is a dream team. As a remote investor this has taken the stress out of venturing into this market. Always at hand when you need advice, Beth is always prompt and efficient in dealing with matters and getting back to you. Professional, polite and courteous at all times.”
“Dealing with Mike has been a breath of fresh air. Accumul8 know the market inside out, are enthusiastic, honest and have always delivered on promises. It’s never easy being a long way from a property but I am more than happy with those guys involved. They sold one property for exactly what we wanted and has sourced a builder to work on our other one which has produced a letting at a higher price than before, in the space of 3 weeks. I couldn’t be happier or more confident in what is being done on our behalf.”
“Mike Hughes provided outstanding service in the sale of our property in Lincoln. He went way beyond the duties normally expected of an agent and proactively anticipated and dealt with issues that would be raised. Mike has very good contacts with the local authority, which allowed difficulties to be resolved and at every stage he communicated most effectively with everyone. His professionalism is an example to others and I can strongly recommend him to whoever would benefit from his services.”
“I’ve worked with Mike on multiple properties – their service is simply first class. I’m always impressed by their expertise and their proactive approach. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for an invaluable partner in property.”

“The team at accumul8 and loc8me look after us extremely well. They’ve helped us build and manage a substantial portfolio over the last few years. We’re very grateful to Mike for his commitment to every aspect of every deal that he sources for us and look forward to doing business together for many more years to come.”
“Working with the team at accumul8 helped me expand into three new target cities within a 12 month period and add 120 beds to my student property portfolio. This would have been impossible without their sound advice, ability to source assets at speed, and capacity to undertake and manage two large refurbishment projects. Each acquisition and renovation project came with it’s own challenges which Mike and the team walked me through. As an investment professional myself, I can wholly recommend accumul8 to investors looking for a highly effective and client focussed service.”
“I contacted the team at accumul8 with some general questions surrounding HMO property – I wasn’t sure whether it was the right investment for me. Through their informative communication and proven track record, they gave me the necessary confidence in the student market. By only bringing properties tailored to my investment profile, they clearly listened to my requirements and since initial contact, I have purchased my first HMO through them and am about to complete on a further two.”
