This month we decided to pledge our support to the British charity The Prison Phoenix Trust by setting up a monthly contribution. The Prison Phoenix Trust is a charity that encourages prisoners in the development of their spiritual welfare, through the practices of meditation and yoga, working with silence and the breath.
The Prison Phoenix Trust offers personal support to prisoners around the UK and the Republic of Ireland through teaching, workshops, correspondence, books and newsletters – and to prison staff too. They work with people of any faith, or of none, and honour all religions.
According to a research article by Bilderbeck et al. published by Hindawi Publishing Corporation, there is emerging evidence that the practice of yoga may play a significant role in prison rehabilitation programmes. On top of this, we believe that just because a person has made mistakes -admittedly, sometimes big mistakes- we should not simply lock people away and forget about them. We should all, as a community, help one another overcome life’s dark moments and become better people day after day
Our director has worked alongside the ex Probation services (now called C.R.C.) back in 2015. At the time, he was working with the charity User Voice to improve the rehabilitation services provided to ex-offenders in the community and he has since remained very sensitive to the cause of improving the way the justice system treats convicted people.
“I am both a meditation and a yoga practitioner myself -said Francesco in the office today- and I know this stuff is powerful! Supporting the PPT and their work with the people society often forgets about is something we should all be proud of in this company.”
You can support PPT too, or just find out more about who they are on their website.
AGAPE Properties has two souls: we are home developers and we are investors. And we want to be the best.
Our core belief is that we should always stay true to the meaning of those two words. Developing for us means improving, offering what was not there before, transforming for the good of the community and of our clients: it’s a creative process and a work that should always try to leave the world a bit better off than it was before. Investing, on the other hand, means devoting one’s time, effort, energy and resources to a particular vision, with the expectation of a worthwhile result.
Profit? Money? That’s just a means. A part of the process. Indeed we need money to fuel or projects, and both us and our investors rightly expect a return on the initial financial input, but for us it’s not really about the sheer profit: it’s about building a solid legacy for our future and for our families.
This is what we believe, and this is what we work for: increasing the standards of leaving of our clients by providing quality homes, whilst ensuring investors get all the knowledge they need to invest safely and a healthy return on the capital invested.
For our tenants, we want to offer the best homes. We believe that both the design and the quality your home matters and that, even if you only rent a room for a few weeks from us, you should feel like that is not just a dwelling: but your home.
For investors and co-investors, we source exclusive opportunities on a daily basis. Our range of services includes the whole spectrum of brick and mortar investments. From packaged hands-off deals in properties we acquire, refurbish and rent out for you, to Joint Ventures and Lead Sourcing. We will advise you on all the possible aspects of your investment and make sure the short, medium, and long-term benefits of any recommended strategy match your unique requirements.
For home-owners and landlords, we provide a full list of services to help you achieve what you need in the most effective way. We can purchase properties quickly, if this is what is required, or we can work with your property over a period to achieve the best return whilst giving you peace of mind. We like to think creatively but effectively and to be realistic on each deal – our aim is always to deliver or over-deliver what we promise.
Our belief is that by working locally but reaching globally, we can connect the right people with the right properties. We strive for delivering bespoke quality properties since we believe that, by tailoring our products to the demands of the market, we can best serve both the investors and the end users.
It’s 2017 and AGAPE Properties keeps growing and promoting quality property developments across England and Wales.
After a fantastic 2016, where we entered the commercial property market and tackled our first commercial building redevelopment, we are now busy developing in Croydon, where we have set out to provide new high spec residential accommodation for a fair rental price.
Today we inaugurate our new website and feel really good about refreshing our online presence. We hope that this beautifully designed page will better reflect our company values, which aims at providing both high quality and great design in each and every development we undertake.
We thank our little sister AgapeSoft for this beautifully designed website and welcome any feedback about the new style.
