We don't know what I would have done if we didn't have Claire helping to ensure everything went smoothly with my house purchase. I used another agent to deal with my sale and the house we purchased was managed by Town & Country. Unfortunately, my agent was not very helpful when the sale/purchase got into trouble. Claire stepped in, even though she did not act on my behalf for my sale, to ensure the sale/purchase went through smoothly. Thank you so much Claire....if I ever choos...

Very positive experience. Have to admit that I had a very "generic" view of Estate Agent capabilities as a breed, but this has now changed in that when the "chain" became mired in operational difficulties, compounded by the August Break, Claire got stuck in and applied her solution to this particular Gordion Knot. Well done, and thank you....

I had looked at over 52 properties and had almost given up when I found my beautiful apartment. Claire was perfect in helping me acquire the property. Constantly in touch and geeing up the solicitors when needed. I would highly recommend Claire, she gets things done and is so thoughtful during this sometimes stressful process....

Town and Countr found a buyer for my property after only two days, with a totally realistic purchase price. Claire was the agent that I dealt with during the long, protracted sale process and I can honestly say that without her wit, expertise and intervention when things ground to a halt, the sale may never have reached a happy conclusion. I would not hesitate to recommend Town and Country and in particular, Claire. She is a star....

Kieran is very friendly, helpful and overall brilliant. Whenever we had questions regarding the property he was always on the other end of the phone and if he wasn't available he'd call back asap. He was always very helpful. Was always on time to appointments and if was late he'd always make sure he'd call to let us know....

It is well known that House moves can be very stressful especially when the chain is long and complicated. All I have to say is that my move was completely stress free and all because of Hilary. She is the best Estate agent I have ever come across, keeping me me informed at all stages what was going on throughout the complicated chain. She did not once lose her patience. I cannot thank Hilary enough. One estate agent I would definitely trust....

Hilary went over and above what I would expect to keep the chain together. It was a very difficult chain with a number of issues. Hilary kept me updated at each stage. She remained professional throughout and manage to lower my anxiety levels during this process. Although I don't plan on moving again - i would definitely recommend services to others. Thank you...

I am a professional investor in property and I come across a lot of Estate Agents in this role. I first met Claire when I visited her office, having made an offer on a probate sale, my first contact with a different member of the team wasn't providing the answers I would have expected to my questions, Claire could sense my growing frustration & kindly intervened, since that intervention, we have negotiated a couple of hurdles & Claire has smoothed the path to completion in a very profess...

Hilary is one of the nicest, efficient and professional estate agent that I have ever come across! From the moment I viewed the property I knew I was in capable hands, nothing was ever to much trouble and she went out of her way at every stage to ensure the sale went through as quickly and with the least amount of stress. She was always so prompt to reply to any questions and knew exactly what was going on with the sale at every single stage! I have never met an estate agent like her and will d...

All of the Town/Fine and Country team were excelllent. They clearly know the market and are very professional. I dealt with Claire predominantly with both the sale of my property and she also found us our new property too - after lots of trying! She has a very charming and easy going manner, a true people person. She gets to know what you want and ensures she gets everyone on her side. I can't praise her too highly in her ability to keep the chain together. Don't believe what you hear about est...

Hilary and all the staff at Town & Country Southern have been fantastic. They were very helpful and managed to gain a quick sale on my property for the price I wanted to achieve. However it didn't stop there! I was in a very tricky chain and Hilary ensured that everybody in the chain was doing everything they should be doing and liaised with all other agents and solicitors in the chain to ensure that we ended up exchanging contacts and completing. I can not recommend Hilary enough and thank ...

The real estate business seems to be the place where a lot of people go to work but only a few offer a truly professional service to their clients. I have seen many over the years and in my opinion Hilary does actually care about her clients and ensures they are contacted and informed of every aspect of buying a house and what needs to be done....

She was efficient at keeping us updated throughout the process and also very friendly and helpful in answering any questions we had. We are also very grateful for the moving in gifts we were handed when we picked up our keys. It was a lovely gesture and showed that Town and Country go that extra mile to look after their customers.

All men are created equal This is not true of Estate Agents The team at Town and Country work long hours and would often be calling us with updates at circa 7pm in the evening and in fact our offer came through to us around that time on a Saturday night. Hilary dealt with our sale and without a doubt was the driving force in pushing all parties (buyers , solicitors and other estate agents) in the chain through to exchange. Colin was very knowledgeable about the area when he came to value ou...

Primarily dealt with Claire but also with Hillary on occasion. Hillary was always calm, easy-going and a pleasure to deal with. Claire could be a little more direct at times, but in a good way. She wasn't scared of ‘shaking things up' a little in order to push the process along. She certainly grabbed our chain by the scruff of the neck and drove it through to the agreed deadline. Claire is very well organised and both her and Hillary are very professional....

We bought our home in June 2016 after waiting almost a year since putting in our offer, as the chain was quite long and complicated - I think we ended up with 6 people in the chain(!) and all with various complications (divorced, widowed, etc). We dealt mostly with Hilary (although we also spoke to Claire a few times). All the staff were fabulous, and Hilary was excellent - always returned our calls and emails and kept us up to date with what was an awkward purchase due to the chain. Our solicit...
