Delighted. Impressed. Very efficient. Always quick to deal with issues that arose. Had to go several extra miles as a number of complications occurred. Always friendly and cheerful. Hilary and Claire handle the majority of our sale but the rest of the team were equally friendly and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to use the office again or to recommend them to others....

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....

Claire has been absolutely amazing from Day One of our sale. She was always extremely friendly and professional whenever we spoke to her, as was Hilary. Claire worked extremely long hours as I think all the staff do, and she always returned my calls/emails. It was helpful that she had full access to the people in our chain; she was a vital link in the process....

We recently sold and purchased a property through Town & Country we could not fault them in any way. Clare was extremely helpful and was always at the end of the phone for us. I can honestly say they went the extra mile to make our sale/purchase go as smooth as possible....

Hilary was professional, thorough and empathetic. She applied herself to the task, constantly updated me and chased outstanding matters. She anticipated situations which would need clarification and ensured the appropriate person was available to deal with any issues needing to be addressed. Thank you Hilary....

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...

Our sale and purchase turned out to be very drawn out and at times seemed to be a bit of a marathon with lots of challenges along the way, Our dealings with Colin,Hilary,and Mollie where excellent and they where all exceptionally helpful ! However we had most contact and dealings with Claire ! Who we found to be highly professional in all aspects of her job, she was honest and very easy to communicate with, at times her sense of humour and patience helped to relieve a few stressful moment...

Whilst my initial experiences with Town and Country were far from favourable had it not been for Clair this review would not have been five stars. Whilst both Clair and Hilary were involved in our sale and both excellent my primary contact was with Clair and can truthfully say she is an excellent lady and was certainly instrumental in the sale of our house. Thank you both for all your efforts....

Claire was exceptionally helpful and friendly throughout the entire process. She always spent time explaining each step and ensured any requested visits to the property were possible. Claire had an immediate understanding of the entire chain, ensured everything progressed with all parties and kept me fully up to date with regard to the overall status. Claire was always extremely pro-active and highly professional. Claire's colleague (Hilary) also had the latest status at her fingertips and a...

When m purchase of another property fell through, I needed to act fast to find another I'd love as much. Seeing such a place on Rightmove, I contacted Claire who reshuffled her calendar to meet me there a couple of hours later. She clearly really liked the place herself and her selling skills, without that awful pushiness some agents can have, played a significant role in my decision to put an offer in the same day. I met Claire again a couple of times on further measuring visits - and Molli...

From the initial valuation by Colin Shairp and the accompanied viewings with instant feedback, I would certainly recommend Town and Country. Both Claire and Hilary worked tirelessly to keep the momentum of our sale going, keeping us constantly updated. Hilary certainly did a fantastic job in the latter stages, ensuring our desired completion date could be achieved. Such a good humoured, friendly and professional service. Well done Town and Country!...

After an initial bad experience with another estate agent . I reached out to Colin and his team to help me market and sell my property. The whole experience has been nothing less than professional from start to finish . If you are looking for a company that can offer you peace of mind and completely act on your behalf than look no further ! A refreshing breath of fresh air ... Thank you...

Although we did not use Town & Country as our estate agent, I could not give praise enough to Hillary for all her sterling work and constant updates when our estate agent was nowhere to be seen or heard. She was always professional, friendly & helpful and made our moving process entirely less stressful. She is a credit to Town & Country....

Many thanks to Claire for overseeing the sale of the family home. It was somewhat of a 'long slog' but Claire's tenacity kept all stakeholders within the chain in line and without doubt her proactiveness enabled us to ultimately complete as per our expectations. Thank you ......

Colin, Hilary and Claire have been very professional and kept us informed at every stage.

From the initial valuation through to completion of the sale of my house, Colin and Claire (together with all of the staff) where courteous and professional. Viewings where organised and the fact that I did not need to be present removed a great deal of stress. I was kept informed at all times with constructive feedback and the progress being made from offer to completion. I am confident that I made the correct choice of Estate Agent and Claire ensured that my sale was as hassle free as possible...

We purchased our new house through Town & Country via Claire and were slightly apprehensive of the process after the poor service we received throughout via our estate agent to whom we were using to sell our property. The service we received was completely the opposite and was first class. Claire was very knowledgeable about the property and area, and was able to answer any questions put to her very quickly. There were a number of challenges with purchasing the property - 3rd time lucky - t...
