Review

January 23, 2017
Constantly being given a professional, faultless service and always at the end of a phone if there are queries .. Always on hand to help out and solve (rapidly) any problems that arise and are always friendly and extremely efficient ! The family share years of valuable experience which has always shone through whenever dealing with them. After years of renting my property out they are the BEST agent I've ever used. My only regret is not having found them earlier after being ripped off and lied to by the High St agents whose sole aim is profit and nothing else. Thank you !
