What our clients say

Want to know what makes our clients enjoy working with us so much? Let them tell you in their own words…

Fabio Aurelio

Liverpool FC (Retired)
Adept have looked after myself and my family for over 15 years, playing a key role in some of the biggest events of my life! When I came to Liverpool, having someone who could help us with everything and could speak Spanish made our transition so much easier and more enjoyable. They helped us find our perfect home and also supported us with all manner of day-to-day things. Just knowing they were always in control was incredibly reassuring.

Adnan Januzaj

Real Sociedad
The Adept Group provide me with a complete lifestyle management service which I honestly couldn't be without. The range of services they offer means I can rely on them for anything I need, from property management to accountancy and anything in between!

Iker Pozo La Rosa

Manchester City / FC Eindhoven
Having come to the UK as a youth player, I feel like I've grown up with the team at Adept. They've genuinely helped me with every part of my life off the football field! Their service levels are exceptional and the fact that they're able to speak Spanish makes it so much easier for me to work with them.
