About Gateway Surveyors
Gateway is the trading style of Home Information Group Limited, a business founded in 2005 by the former Executive Management Team at SecureMove Property Services following that company’s sale. The business established itself as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of valuation and panel management services through a combination of reputation, experience and substantial investment in systems and processes.
Our staff recruitment and training along with our outstanding service proposition are recognised and supported by an independently audited ISO Quality Management System.
Recognising the need to have its own valuation delivery capability, Gateway invested in its own "in house" valuation team in March 2009, which is staffed by fully qualified Chartered Surveyors trading under the name Sonas Surveyors in England and Wales. Gateway compliments this with a fully accredited panel network of over 75 valuation surveying businesses. This facilitates full national postcode coverage and distribution to some 1,500 individual Chartered Surveyors throughout the United Kingdom.
We are a friendly office, renowned for our customer service and expert advice. Have a look at our management team biographies, then please come in and meet us - the kettle is always on!
