My Company Information


Mission Statement

To provide carefully researched property investment opportunities for you, the investor, that generate either great cash flow or great capital growth or both.


The business culture is to under promise and over deliver.

Our success is built in developing long term relationships both with our clients and our suppliers. This is achieved through six key promises that we make to you, the investor. These are:

  1. There will be regular and clear communications at all times
  2. We will deal promptly with your phone, e-mail and hard copy communications
  3. You will share common courtesy and mutual respect at all times
  4. Your dealings with us will be financial transparent
  5. Successes will be shared
  6. You will be so delighted with your investment that you will want to work with us again


We are a niche business that brings together two parties for mutual advantage.

We work with individuals and companies that have cash in bank earning very poor returns. Typically these are “cash rich time poor” and with little or no experience in property investments. 

We work with property owners whose property no longer meets their needs. In these situations, closing a quick sale is often far more important than the selling price.

Ekcle will provide, you the investor, with a profitable property investment at a discounted price. We have experienced local finance and legal partners available if required. We also have a team of experienced tradespeople available to carry out any improvement works required.

You get a great property investment and most of your initial capital can be pulled out. We do all the hard work to ensure that you have a hands free investment.
