Emma helped sell two properties this year and guided us through the whole process reducing the stress that comes along with selling a property. She is very passionate about her job and is tenacious at seeing the sale through to completion whilst keeping you up to date at all times. Emma always has natural positive attitude even when under pressure and this puts you at ease during the more difficult times of the sale. I would highly recommend Emma and wish the new branch all the best for the ...

Charlotte offered charm, humour and efficiency in the lengthy sale of my house. In a slow moving market she managed to achieve a sale at a reasonable price through her persistence and good communication skills with the prospective buyer. I never felt forced into decisions and her sensitivity to the client's personality was key to a good relationship. I thoroughly recommend her....

Fees were relatively high but the service was far better than other agents in the area who offer cheaper deals.

I dealt with Charlotte throughout a protracted purchase. She kept me up-to-date at every step of the way. She was a delight to deal with and I had confidence in everything she told me. Despite not being the party employing the Agent, I did not feel sidelined by her and felt she did her utmost to keep me on board and keep negotiations moving....

My wife and I dealt with Catherine throughout our 3 years at a rental property and we found her to be extremely professional, sincere and very efficient in her work. No request or query was ever a problem. We have lived at several rental properties between us and Catherine is by far the best agent we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with - highly recommended! Equally, Madeleine was always very helpful and professional, and provided a great overall service. We are grateful for her support....

Matthew's valuation was done thoroughly and accurately, giving me the best chance to achieve a good sale price in a reasonable timescale.

Emma always returned my calls, offered honest and open advice and made time to discuss how the marketing of the property was going / what else we could do to achieve a sale. Would not hesitate to use her servi...

She has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and made the whole process as stress free as possible. If Charlotte was on another call, the rest of the team were always very helpful and knowledgeable about our sale and its progress. We can't fault our experience and would recommend without hesitation...

I can't thank Chris and Ann enough for finding me a morgage not once but twice in 10 months. The property I purchased took 10 months to finally complete. In those 10 months my morgage offer had expired along with other covers and insurance offers. Chris and Ann both worked fast and hard to find another morgage best to suit me and to be processed in the small amount of time we had to get the sale through. Would highly recommend anyone to visit either Chris or Ann to get their morgage and themsel...
